From Lane’s Brigade, extract from a letter dated June 15 Line of Battle, east of Riddick’s Shops, June 15 When I wrote you last we were still at our honeycombed house on the line at Turkey Ridge. Sunday evening the enemy were more active than usual, shelling our lines and worrying us with their long-winded minnies. Nevertheless our sharpshooters reported a diminution in the number of tents behind their breastworks. So, sure enough, before dawn, we were waked with the information that the Yankee army had sneaked from our front—retreated we call it—in pursuit of us, they would say. About 9 or 10, we left our lines, after pursuing the enemy for several miles with our skirmishers, and arrived near Riddle’s Shop around 2:00 pm. The cavalry guarding the river crossings down the Charles City Road had been driven back and our division was quickly thrown into action, charging the enemy and driving him a mile or so. Our brigade was in the second line of this advance. We were soon put in the front line on right of our division, and late in the evening the division was ordered forward. We drove the enemy nearly two miles. Our brigade lost very few during the day. Scales’ brigade behaved very gallantly and lost severely. We had much less opposition in our advance. E.J.H., Jr. On the Field near Petersburg, June 19 Messrs. Editors: Allow me space to inform the friends of my company our whereabouts and condition. On the night of the 15th June, Ransom’s Brigade was moved from the north side of the James and marching all night, reached Petersburg early on the morning of the 16th. We moved through the city and on arriving at the eastern suburbs were saluted with a shower of shell. We moved on out of Prince George Road about one mile, formed line of battle and dashed forward to gain our line of entrenchments, which we reached without much loss. The Yankees soon charged and were repulsed. The 24th took more prisoners than we had then for duty. At day break on the 17th, the enemy broke through a Tennessee brigade which joined Ransom’s brigade on the left. The 24th was on the left of Ransom’s and the enemy were in our rear. We did not surrender, but formed line perpendicular to the rear by regiments and the whole brigade drew off in good order without any confusion. During the evening of the 17th the enemy again broke the lines to our left (Wise’s brigade). Ransom’s Brigade was moved to the left and charged and regained the works. The 35th lost heavily in this charge. Early on the morning of the 18th, our line was drawn in and we threw up new works. The Yankees treated us very kindly by not charging us until we had our works nearly completed and when they came we gave them fits. Their loss is terrible and will be more terrible before they get Petersburg and Richmond. Through the mercies of God I have only to report the following casualties: Wounded: Sgt. P.D. Brown, severely in leg; Sgt. Jas. W. Regan slight in hand and shocked by a bomb; Private R.G. McNair, in side slight. Privates N.A. Campbell, H. Biggs and Z.B. Wilson are in the hands of the enemy. I trust that neither of them are wounded. We are in reserve now and are resting. The boys are much jaded but all in good spirits. All quiet on the line this morning except the rifles of the sharpshooters and occasionally the discharge of a cannon. Respectfully, A.A. McIver (Company G, 24th N.C.T.)

Editors: Knowing the deep anxiety felt by persons at home for their friends in the army, I adopt your paper as a medium of communicating, briefly, with the friends of the “Cumberland Plough Boys”. We reached this place last Thursday, the 16th inst., and have been under fire about half the time since, but with only slight loss. D.J. Godwin was wounded slightly on the 16th and Charlie W. Gainey was killed on the 18th inst. Charlie was a good boy and brave soldier and endeared himself to all by his amiable and gentle disposition. Our boys, notwithstanding the hard service of the past two months, are in the best of spirits, and anxious for the enemy to advance; confident that when they do come, they can prove themselves worthy of their good old mother. We are getting excellent rations now. Besides plenty of meat and bread of good quality we get full rations of sugar and coffee, which, you may be assured, is very acceptable at any time and particularly so now. Let our friends at home rest assured that we are all right and ready to give the enemy convincing evidence that “Tar Heels” do not intend to be subjugated. A Ploughboy (Company G, 24th N.C.T.)

White Fayetteville Observer, Monday, July 18 24th N.C.T Near Petersburg, Va., July 11 Messrs. Editors: I again respectfully ask a small space in your columns to inform the friends of my company of our whereabouts and condition. We have been cut off from our mail supplies for some time. Letters from home are anxiously looked for. The last Observer read aloud would cause the whole of my company to huddle around it. Since my last letter we have been on the lines most of the time. The enemy are in close proximity and the fire of the sharpshooters is incessant—if a fellow exposes his head he gets a ball in it, besides the danger of being killed by sharpshooters. The enemy have a practice of trying to kill us with “mortars”, but it is very seldom that they drop one in the right place. The loss of my company since the 20th June has been slight, considering the hot places we have been in, and also when compared with the other companies of the 24th Regiment. We are the largest company and have sustained the least loss. There has been one of the company killed: Private Daniel H. Smith, a noble fellow in every respect. Wounded: John N. McLean, severely. The ball entered the arm near the shoulder and lodged near the spine; Private E.J. Biggs, with piece of shell—not serious. In addition to these there have been several very slightly wounded, many of them were “hair breadth” scrapes. Ransom’s Brigades received two months’ pay a few days ago. Money seems to be abundant, but at present prices two months’ pay will not last long if a soldier trades much with cake and pie vendors. Rations are very good. The army receives coffee and sugar as regularly as it does meat and bread. If we could get a plenty of vegetables we would be all right. There is but little cannonading to be heard today, and the sharpshooters are more quiet than usual. The sharp shooting is usually heaviest in the late evening. It is strange how cool and reckless men become when they have been under fire for a number of days. When a regiment goes on the front line, for the first day or so a fellow will dodge his head at every Minnie ball that passes, but after remaining on the line a while this dodging ceases. Respectfully, etc., A.A. McIver (Company G, 24th N.C.T.) Fayetteville Observer, Monday, July 25, 1864 Extracts from a Letter from Lane’s Brigade Deep Bottom, below Richmond, July 13 We arrived at this point from Petersburg on the 3rd. Deep Bottom is some five or six miles below Drewry’s Bluff. The enemy, some weeks since, made a lodgment here and fortified. Their skirmish line is about one or one and a half miles this side of the river. We (the left of the army) confront them here in line of battle. I ride to the vidette posts occasionally and look at the vandals, who do not seem much disposed, as yet, to be bellicose. Occasionally there are a few shots along the line and some shelling from their gun boats or a battery they have on the land. A pontoon bridge connects them with their troops on the other side. We have saved a considerable quantity of forage from the rich Mr. Allen’s farm and others by sending out a detail of mowers. We have intensely hot weather and until yesterday afternoon, have had a drought for more than six weeks, which made the roads suffocating with dust and so parched the earth as to cut off almost entirely the supply of vegetables. Since our arrival here, however, I have managed to beg a few vegetables at enormous prices and by swapping meal or coffee and sugar. Yesterday afternoon the shower was refreshing, laid the dust, and I hope will do the lands and gardens some good. On Thursday, taking advantage of the quiet, Col. Barry and I went to Richmond to recreate and to see General Lane and his brother……..A few days before we saw him, Lt. Lane’s life had been despaired of. Besides the amputation of a portion of his right foot, he had suffered two amputations of his left leg, and now, completely worn down, may have to undergo a third. But I have learned that he has improved considerable since I saw him and is cheerful enough to joke a little. He is staying at the elegant house of Mr. Crenshaw, where every attention is shown to him and all delicacies ready for him at all times of the day and night. The General has been at Mr. Meade’s. He is nearly well now and rides over to Mr. Crenshaw’s every day. The doctors say his was the most remarkable wound they ever knew. The ball struck the artery just below the groin, pushed it aside without cutting it and passing between it and the bone went through the leg. If it had suppurated as wounds usually do, the artery would have been involved and he would have bled to death almost without doubt. But instead of this, the wound healed by “the first intention” and is now well, except for soreness. His leg is weak yet and the connected muscles twitch his leg up once in a while, but the bruises from the impromptu tourniquet (my handkerchief with a stick twisted in it) hurt him more than the wound. He says he will soon be with us. There was some musketry firing across the river last night. I don’t know what it was; but things are pretty quiet today. I do not hear a gun now.

Caddy or Gaddy, right arm, flesh Front Lines at Petersburg Aug. 24, 1864 Messrs Editors: The quiet along the lines at Petersburg has again been broken and several engagements have taken place. The bloodiest fighting and most reckless charging was done on Sunday, the 21st and it is my design to relate, in a feeble manner, the part borne by Ransom’s Brigade, North Carolinians, in that bloody and unfortunate battle. On the 20th, the Brigade, under the command of Lt. Col. Jno. L. Harris of the 24th N.C.T. was moved from its position near the center of the line, to the Weldon R.R. on the right. Early on the morning of the 21st the Brigade formed into line of battle in the edge of “Davis’” cornfield, the 24th N.C.T. on the right side of the Brigade and the right of the 24th resting on the railroad. The 49th was next to the 24th; the 56th, 35th and 26th followed. The old Brigade had formed for “charges” before and knew what was to be done. The brave men began to inquire, what troops were to support, cover the flanks, etc. The reply was Cooke’s Brigade was on our left and would support us. This was good enough; we knew Cooke’s Brigade and it was also discovered that Kirkland’s Brigade joined us on the right and we felt satisfied that the right would come, if there was any chance. It was near 10:00 when the order to charge was given. Ransom’s Brigade raised their battle yell, started, soon met the enemy’s skirmishers, or rather drove them in, for the “yell” was all they could stand. The enemy’s line of battle soon opened upon us, their showers of Minnie balls doing us some damage; but the dense swamp through which we were charging seemed to receive the most of the leaden messengers. The enemy had felled the trees for 200 yards in front of their breastworks and in some places had fixed palisades, but the appearance of the abattis and palisades and the plain view of the enemy’s breastworks did not seem to frighten “Ransom’s Brigade”—they yelled louder and instead of faltering doubled their speed. The Yankee lines broke and the breastworks were soon filled with the yelling Rebels. About 300 prisoners were taken and sent to the rear by Ransom’s Brigade. Here ended our success. It appears that it was the order for the Brigade to halt until the Brigades on our right would drive the enemy, and then follow up the success. Ransom’s Brigade quickly dispensed of their prisoners and thinking the troops on our right were successful, rushed impetuously forward and gained another line of works where had been abandoned by the enemy. We were now within a few hundred yards of the enemy’s line of batteries. As we entered an open field, a battery somewhat in advance of the other batteries limbered up and “trotted off” to the rear. The whole line of batteries now opened on the little brigade which was considerably in advance of thee troops on their right. We looked for Kirkland’s Brigade in vain, the troops on their right had failed, and it is also said that the charge of Kirkland’s Brigade was impeded by the water which was so deep that they could not load their rifles. Ransom’s Brigade was ordered to lie down; we were to wait; we were to wait until our troops on the right would come up. Minutes seemed like hours. The Yankees had three batteries at close range, tearing and mangling our brave men, and added to this our own batteries, not knowing that we had advanced so far, opened upon us, doing us much damage. Our position was truly a critical one, but the whole Brigade seemed cool and determined, no wavering or signs of giving way; if it was possible for the troops on the right to carry their position, Ransom’s Brigade was determined to carry every thing in their front. The fire from our own batteries soon ceased, and now we were no longer exposed to the fire from the rear; but it appeared as if we were still surrounded by cannon, so furiously did the batteries of the enemy fire upon us. The order soon came for Ransom’s Brigade to fall back to the line of breastworks wrested from the enemy. In obedience to the orders, the Brigade fell back under murderous fire from the enemy’s batteries. It was hard to be compelled to fall back after driving the Yankee infantry and one battery off the field. The Battle of Sunday, Aug. 21, ended disastrously to the Confederate armies. It is said that a portion of our troops who were to turn the enemy’s left did not act well. However this was, Ransom’s North Carolina Brigade did all that was required of them and charged with a determination never excelled by any body of men. A.

Thus have five true patriots and good soldiers sacrificed themselves willingly upon our country’s altar. They were men of kind and amiable dispositions—were beloved by comrades and respected by officers, to whom they were ever obedient. They always did duty very well, fought well, bore the trials and privations of a soldiers life as if it were a mere pleasure to do so; and in all things they were perfect representation of the true Confederate soldier. Their places are still vacant in the company, but they will ever live in our hearts. A Soldier Friend Casualties 56th N.C.T., Company B Messrs E.J.

Cavalry Messrs Editors: I think it due our State to let her know of the part her troops take in the various engagements. That North Carolina has done her pat in this war, the bones of her sons moldering on every battlefield, from Bethel to Gettysburg will testify. I shall attempt to give merely a sketch of the part enacted by the 1st N.C. Cavalry in fights at Jack’s Shops, Madison County and near Liberty Mills, Osage County, Virginia on the 22nd Sept. My observation was confined to my own regiment, for that reason I shall speak of no other, for fear of doing injustice to some. We received orders about 1:00 on the morning of the 22nd to be in the saddle by daybreak. As “rosy fingered Aurora” tinged the eastern skies with the first streak of dawn, the familiar sound of “Boots and Saddles” broke upon our ears. With the alacrity of troopers of 28 months practice, we leapt into our saddles, and soon the regiment was on the march. The old regiment is reduced to 130 men. The rest of the brigade fell in and we proceeded to join the other two brigades which constitute Hampton’s Division. The 2nd, 4th, and 5th N.C., together with ours, form Baker’s N.C. Brigade, now commanded by Co. Ferebee of the 5th. Our regiment is under the command of Lt. Col. Ruffin, Col. Gordon being in command of Butler’s Brigade. They were told the enemy was in strong force at Madison Court House. From here we started under General Stuart (1st N.C. in front) to intersect the pike from Madison C.H. to Gordonsville, which we did about six miles south of the court house. We did not find the enemy there, so pushed up the pike, Company F, 1st N.C. acting as advance guard, with sabers drawn. We had proceeded only a short distance when our advance guard came up with the advance guard of the enemy. Our boys charged them and ran them back; the regiment drew sabers and took up the gallop, keeping close behind. Just beyond Jack’s Shop (where we first fell in with the enemy), there was a skirt of pines, extending on either side of the road. In these, the enemy were posted, their dismounted skirmishers lining the fence. Into this, Company F, under command of Lt. Foard, charged most gallantly. Here they were confronted by an overwhelming force of cavalry, and from every tree whistled a rifle bullet. After emptying their pistols in the face of the foe, the remnant of them then came out, and reported the strength and position of the enemy. The column was halted in 50 yards of the woods. It was deemed impracticable to charge the enemy posted as they were in the woods. Sharpshooters were immediately dismounted from every company and thrown forward, except Companies A and H, under Capt. Cowles, who were sent to the left to hold the flanks. These were soon thrown out as sharpshooters, and the whole regiment was then dismounted. Major Clark, whose horse had been shot from under him, took command of the line. Our men gallantly charged the woods, drove the enemy back, and for some time held their position in the pines. The fight had now become general. Squadrons of sharpshooters were seen hurrying up from our own brigade and Col. Gordon’s command, to support us. It was here, while cheering on his men, that the gallant Captain Andrews fell, shot through the lungs. No braver or better man has fallen during this war. He was universally beloved by all. His wound, which at first was thought mortal, now gives hope of his recovery. The artillery now opened upon us, and General Stuart, who, with Colonels Gordon, Ferebee and Ruffin, was in front, called to our boys to pick off their artillerymen. After a stubborn resistance, we were overpowered, and fell back about 200 yards, which position we held until the enemy had gained our rear and we were ordered to retreat. We had fallen back about a mile, when we heard firing in our rear, and coming out on an open hill, we found our artillery posted to sweep in every direction. The cause of this at first we could not divine, but we were not long in finding out, for the bullets began to whistle around us from every quarter. Col. Ruffin formed our command on the crest of a hill; we numbered only about fifty men. Of the 130 who went into the battle, (the next two lines are illegible, but number the men who had been killed, wounded or captured). We now had to cut our way out. We moved on. Just ahead of us we heard a shout, and after a little we saw a crowd of blue jackets coming in divested of arms, canteens and spurs. Col. Ferebee, with a part of his command and a miscellaneous crowd from every command, had charged and cut the Yankee line. The Yankees, having failed in their attempt to hem in Hampton’s Division, as they have always failed before, drew off, and we made our way quietly to the river. When we arrived at the river, we beheld another large column of the enemy, across the river, and about two miles above. We crossed at Liberty Mills, and took a road leading to them. The evening was far advanced; only a short time remained of the day light, yet they must be driven back before night. We found a body of our infantry deployed along a fence and through a field, holding them in check. We went to their left, under a ridge of hills into a wood; Company K, Captain Addington, was thrown forward as an advance guard. We came out of the woods to the left and in front of the infantry. The Yankees were prepared for us, and opened a heavy fire of artillery with their usual accuracy. General Stuart now ordered the charge. The last rays of the setting sun was glistening on our sabers as we raised the war cry. The horses participated in the excitement and forgetting their weariness, dashed forward. It was a long charge, over hills and gullies. The enemy had limbered up and took their artillery back to a safer position; further on we saw a large body of their cavalry, who opened on us with their rifles; we made for them through a shower of grape and rifle balls. Just before we reached them, they broke and ran, leaving an impassable branch between us; at the same time a body of their sharp shooters opened on us, from the right, and we turned upon them, and closed the day by capturing all who made a stand. Our brigade suffered the heaviest loss. There were 92 casualties, out of about 500 men who went into the fight. Of Butler’s Brigade, the Cobb and Phillips Legions, and 2nd S.C. only were present. They were ably commanded by Col. Gordon of this regiment and fought as they have always done, with the greatest of courage. Lt. Col. Delony of the Cobb Legion was wounded in the leg and fell into the hands of the Yankees while on his way to the river. Hampton’s Division alone were present. They mounted about 2,000 men in all, and were confronted by over 6,000 Yankees under General Kilpatrick and General Buford. They had started on a raid to Gordonsville and Charlottesville, but heir plan was unfortunately nipped in the bud. During the night of the 22nd, they commenced moving and fell back rapidly to their old position. Everything now is quiet. 1st N.C.

Duke Fayetteville Observer, Monday, October 3, 1864 Camp 3rd Cavalry, Near Reams’ Station September 22, 1864 September 22, 1864 The monotony of camp life was broken again on the 16th inst. By a dozen bugles souding “boots and saddles”, four days rations of “hard tack” having already been issued the men. The night of the 16th found us on the Norfolk Railroad, 20 miles below Petersburg. Our column consisted of detachments from Rosser’s, Dearing’s, Chambliss’ (now Davis’) and Barringer’s Brigades. Of our brigade, there were the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Regiments. The 5th was otherwise employed. On Friday morning (I suppose it is called morning, after midnight) at 1:00 we moved off. The column divided so as to approach the point of attack from below and above, Roser and Dearing went below, Barringer and Davis above, to the left. We halted for a moment to await tidings from Rosser, while we were about four miles from Coggin’s Point, where the cattle were grazing. The moon had gone down, leaving the world to darkness. We halted but a moment, when the grey streaks of morning came darting from the east, and with them came the hearty cheers of Rosser’s and Dearing’s men as they pounced upon the Yankee pickets and camp, capturing and scattering all that stood in their way. Again our column moved on, Col Davis’ Brigade going in front, and very soon a “halt” from the Yankee pickets was answered with a charge by the Virginians. On this road, we scattered the Yankee pickets, capturing 20 or 25 besides the camp and camp equipage. By some means, the work was not done as well as it ought to have been done. Still, we moved on to within three miles of Prince George Court House, dismounted, and in a few minutes had substantial breastworks guarding the way of approach from Grant’s main force above. We remained there until about 10:00, the enemy in our front making but a feeble demonstration, skirmishing lightly with our videttes. The prisoners taken numbered nearly 400, including two majors and captains each. We then followed on quietly, with scarcely a gun to tell us that we were in the “enemy’s territory”. Four or five regiments showed themselves in our front just as our advance reached the vicinity of the Jerusalem Plank Road in the evening. General Hampton turned off to the left by another route, while Rosser and Dearing, who were in advance, dismounted and went to work, determined to remove all obstructions. I had almost forgotten to tell you that Capt. Graham and Capt. McGregor’s batteries were represented in our column, each having two pieces. About sunset, or a little after, when we—the rear—came up, they made such an amount of “thunder” as I never heard from so small batteries. Between the fire of the artillery and the spirited charges of our dismounted cavalry, the enemy cleared the track for our wagon train and all. About this time, they appeared in the rear in the road we had come up. Col. Roberts of the 2nd N.C. attended to them there. We reached our old quarters with all our plunder safe. The loss during the expedition was very slight—25 perhaps, nearly all of whom were captured at different times from various causes. All is quiet again.

Brotherton In justice to the regiment I should here state that it was on picket at the time the attack was made at Winchester, where our loss was greatest, and held the enemy in check until reinforced, the enemy advanced in such numbers as to cover both flanks of the regiment, and charging our line succeeded in capturing many of the pickets and skirmishers that wee in the advance; let me state that our camp was not surprised and the troops thrown in confusion by the advance of the enemy as was recently stated in some of the papers.
