    The fight at Bristow Station
    The following was written by an officer.  The blame for this disaster, it seems, attaches 
    itself to General Heth of Virginia.
    The army of General Lee left the south side of the Rapidan the week before last and 
    passed in the direction of Madison Court House, the right flank of the enemy—I suppose,
    if found practicable, to get in their rear or at least to cut off a portion of their force.  The 
    enemy, however, retreated as soon as they heard our movements, burning camp and 
    garrison, equipage, destroying provisions, etc.  
    Their flight was so rapid we did not overtake them in force until near Bristow Station on 
    the evening of the 14th.  Bristow Station is three or four miles this side of Manassas 
    Junction.  I will here mention our cavalry have been capturing them in small squads 
    all the way from Robinson River.  Hill’s and Ewell’s Corps marched by different roads 
    almost parallel to each other from three to five miles between, to be within supporting 
    distance of each other.
    The different divisions of our corps march in front every third day or so to equalize the 
    hardships as much as possible.  The day spoken of was Anderson’s turn but from 
    some cause I know not why he was halted during the day and Heth thrown forward.
    The battle ground is mostly a cleared field, the railroad passing through it from five to 
    ten feet high making it a formidable breast work.  A short distance from this on the 
    enemy’s side the ground raises gradually until a considerable elevation is attained.  
    Upon this were placed the enemy’s batteries and near its base they had rifle pits.  
    Their batteries were so arranged as to have a raking fire in front and also an enfilading 
    one by the right and left of any forces advancing.  
    I learn both Hill and Heth were present when our advance came up.  It was thought 
    the enemy were in camp and if a dash were made they would be scattered like chaff.  
    Ours (Kirkland’s) and Cook’s Brigades were ordered to advance and charge.  The 
    skirmishers were not allowed to feel the enemy and we knew not what the forces of 
    theirs really were.  The consequence was that both brigades were badly cut up in a 
    short time.  Exposed to a galling fire from all the batteries, railroads and puts, how 
    could it be otherwise?
    Colonel Jones of the 26th informs me most of his men killed fell on the side of the 
    railroad the enemy were on and that where he charged it was fully ten feet high.  Our 
    men had to fall back and as anybody will conclude, in confusion, considering two 
    brigades were fighting two corps.  We had five or six pieces of artillery taken as the 
    enemy advanced  rapidly upon our retreating forces and all or nearly all of the horses 
    had been killed at the batteries.
    Had the exact position of the enemy been found out, our troops concentrated and 
    one division thrown on their left, the other on their right, how different would have 
    been the result.  Instead of the capture of our artillery and the loss in killed and 
    wounded and missing of nearly 1,500 men, we would have bagged their whole force 
    engaged, their artillery and gained a brilliant victory; or if the attack had been delayed 
    an hour, I am informed Ewell would have been in their rear.
    As it was, the enemy retreated on Centreville during the night, so the attack, as far 
    as position was concerned, was, I am fully convinced, that somebody high in 
    command is greatly to be blamed and if justice were done, would be cashiered.  
    I wish North Carolina could be placed in a North Carolina divisions with our own 
    generals.  General Lee’s objective was not to have a general fight but to push them 
    vigorously as far as possible and then to completely destroy the Orange and 
    Alexandra railroads.
    I forgot to mention that General Kirkland, after advancing near, sent an aid back to 
    Hill and Heth, informing them the enemy were about to open an enfilading fire upon 
    them.  The answer was given that it would be a long time before they did and no 
    directions were given at all.  Walker’s and Davis’ brigades of our divisions, the 1st 
    Virginia and the 1st Tennessee and other Mississipians were not called into action 
    at all.  It was these who taunted N.C. with losing batteries though it was first 
    mentioned who failed to support ours at Gettysburg on the first day which caused 
    such slaughter and both broke and ran.  When I see our state treated with such 
    marked injustice it makes my blood boil in my veins.
    The 26th Regiment, formerly commanded by Governor Vance, numbered 850 strong 
    just before Gettysburg but in that battle it was badly cut up and its available force 
    reduced to about 300.  It suffered badly in the last fight at Bristow Station and does 
    not number now more than 125 effective men.  We are yet without casualties in this 
    regiment in the Bristow fight.  We had the pleasure recently of seeing Colonel 
    John R. Lane who now commands the 26th.  Colonel Lane was seriously wounded 
    in the battle of Gettysburg after Colonel Burgwyn had fallen.  The ball struck him 
    in the back of the neck and ranged through his jaw coming out at the mouth.  He 
    was in front of his men and turning to command them he was struck.  He has not 
    yet fully recovered from the wound.  Colonel Lane joined the 26th as a “high” 
    private and by his gallantry and good conduct and the death of his seniors, has 
    risen to colonel.  Major J.T. James of Caldwell is now lieutenant colonel.
    The last Asheville News contains an account of the recent fight at Warm Springs, 
    36 miles from Asheville.  The first conflict took place between a small body of our 
    cavalry and about 400 or 500 of the enemy.  Our forces were so greatly 
    outnumbered that they were forced to fall back.  Major Woodfin was killed and 
    four of his command wounded.  The enemy was posted in the large brick hotel 
    at the Springs in a strong position.  The News says:
    “Another fight took place near the Warm Springs two or three days since between 
    a large portion of the 25th  N.C. Regiment commanded by Sam C. Bryson and a 
    large force of the enemy.  They outnumbered our boys quite a lot and after a 
    stubborn fight Colonel Bryson fell back.  We had six men killed, Lt. Hyatt, and 
    others whose names we have not learned.  Lt. Hyatt was an excellent officer, a 
    gallant and worthy man.  The loss of the enemy was reported to be heavy.  P.S. 
    Since the foregoing was put into type we have received some additional particulars.  
    The following is a list of the killed:  Lt. Hyatt, Sgt. Collins, Monroe Huskins, J.H. 
    Townsend, J. Dodgins, ------- Williams”  (Note:  See also below, account of this and 
    another version of the casualty list)

    Brigadier General R.B. Vance:
    In pursuance of orders I received from you, I crossed the French Broad at 
    Marshall on the morning of the 25th with 80 men from the regiment commanded 
    by Capt. C.M. Roberts, Lt. W.P. Welch, Lt. Plumblee(?), Lt. Hyatt and Lt. Lane 
    and took the road up Pine Creed and crossed the Spring Creek Mountain by a 
    trail leading to what is known as the “Flats” on Spring Creek which we reached 
    at night.  There I was joined by Major Rhea from Haywood with about twenty 
    militia men.  I here procured supplies for the men and proceeded on the march, 
    reaching the enemy’s outpost just at daylight; but instead of finding a picket at 
    his outpost I found men drawn up in a line of battle, waiting to receive me, they
    having discovered the plan, from all accounts, early the night before.
    When I made the attack, though the enemy numbered, as was afterwards 
    ascertained, about 400, in line, I charged him and completely routed him 
    from his position and drove him beyond the field.  A second time, coming 
    up, shoed the same result.  A third time they reinforced and came.  With 
    this force my little band struggled for some time successfully but seeing we 
    were completely overwhelmed in numbers, I gave the order to fall back.  Most 
    of the men did so in good order.  
    All the men and officers on this occasion acted with such coolness and gallantry
    that it is hard to individualize but I cannot refrain from mentioning the conduct of 
    Lt. W.P. Welch and Sgt. Collins of Company B.  Lt. Welch led his men with 
    great gallantry and set an example for them for more than one of the enemy was 
    seen to fall by his hand.  In a hand to hand encounter Sgt. Collins rushed 
    forward and sacrificed his own life to save mine.
    Major Rhea and a portion of his militia fought well but the conduct of others was 
    not very good.
    My loss is four killed, viz: Lt. Hyatt, Sgt. Collins, Ptes. Monroe Hushins, and L. 
    Dodgins.  Wounded:  B. F West, severely, ---- Person of Company I, slightly, 
    ----- Williams, wounded and in the hands of the enemy, John McClure, militia man, 
    I am satisfied that the enemy’s loss in killed and wounded cannot fall short of thirty 
    and most of my officers think more than that.
    I am, General, with great respect, 
    Your Obedient Servant

    You will please publish the following list of casualties of Company E, 27th N.C.T. 
    in the Battle of Bristow Station for the information of anxious friends and relatives.  
    (Note see also casualties above)
    Killed:  Lt. Jas. Tyer, Ptes. R.K. Murphy, Jas. P. Parker, John Morris
    Wounded:  A.J. Baker, Jos. Brewer, B.A. Buck, William Corbett, Dempsey 
    Corbett, Howell Corbett, Jesse Murphy, Moses Nichols, E.S. Parker, 
    Shaderach Williams, Sgts. Brantly and Carr, Corpls. R.J. Long and E.A. Barrett
    Missing:  Jno James, W.J. Kilpatrick, W. Pierce
    Allow me to say that a list of the casualties in this regiment was carefully 
    made out and sent to a newspaper in Richmond for publication.  For some 
    reason the names of the killed and wounded officers only were published and 
    believing that the relatives of the private soldiers are as desirous to know their 
    fates as those of the officers, I send you the above list of our company which 
    our captain assures me is correct.  It is, indeed, mortifying to think that our 
    brave comrades were slaughtered by the mismanagement of Virginia Generals 
    and then not allowed a small space in a Virginia newspaper to let their 
    distressed families know what has become of them.
