June 27—letter North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 16, 1862 The Chickahominy is a stream rather above the dig of a creek and not full up to that of a river, which meanders through the tide water district of the James River at a mean distance of ten or twelve miles from that river until it leaves the lower end of Charles City County, when it abruptly turns south and empties into the James. It is the north boundary of both Henrico and Charles City. It is skirted gently by wide low lands and in some parts, swamps. McClellan’s Army had a part of it across to the south side of the Chickahominy and were fortified on the Williamsburg Road and adjacent to it to within seven miles of Richmond— the point where the Battle of Seven Pines occurred. The enemy was also strongly posted for many miles on the north bank, the heights of which were fortified with great energy and skill from Meadow Bridge, his extreme right, to some two miles below Bottom’s Bridge, a distance of about twenty miles. Meadow Bridge is six and three quarters miles from and north of the city and at that point the Central Railroad crosses the Chickahominy. The enemy were posted on the heights beyond. The York River Railroad crosses the Chickahominy about ten miles from Richmond and about that distance below Meadow Bridge. Mechanicsville is a mile beyond the Chickahominy, six miles from Richmond and some two or three miles below Meadow Bridge. Other points which have become famous in the battles are in this order: Elyson’s Mill, Beaver Dam, Powhite or Hogan’s Farm, and Coal Harbor—all on the north bank and covering a distance some twelve miles. On the south side and south of the York River Railroad are the following roads so often referred to in the narrative given now as well as in the last battle of Seven Pines. The Williamsburg Road connects with the New Bridge and Nine Mile Roads at and near Seven Pines, crossing the Chickahominy at Bottom’s Bridge. The New Bridge crosses the Chickahominy about eight miles from the city. Meadow Bridge is north and the route of our victories being from thence down the southeast line pursued on the Chickahominy, is brought up at Bottom’s Bridge and east of the city. On Tuesday at 3:00 Major General Jackson took up the line of march from Ashland and proceeding down the country between the Chickahominy and Pamunky rivers he uncovered the front of Brigadier General Branch by driving off the enemy collected on the north bank of the Chickahominy, at the point where it is crossed by the Brook Turnpike; General Branch, who was on the south bank then crossed the river and wheeled to the right down its north bank. Proceeding in that direction, General Branch in like manner uncovered at the Meadow Bridge the front of Major General A.P. Hill who immediately crossed. The three columns now proceeded en echelon—General Jackson in advance and on the extreme left; General Branch in the center and General A.P. Hill on the right immediately on the river. Jackson, bearing away from the Chickahominy so as to gain ground towards the Pamunkey, marched to the left of Mechanicsville while General Hill approached the village of Mechanicsville and engaged the enemy there. Driven from the immediate locality of Mechanicsville, the enemy retreated during the night to Powhite Swamp and night closed the operations of Thursday. As soon as General Hill cleared the road in Mechanicsville, General Longstreet’s corps, consisting of his veteran division and General D.H. Hill’s division, came out of the woods on the south side of the Chickahominy and crossed that river at Mechanicsville. The position of our army on Friday night may be described as follows: With the Chickahominy an acute angle; our left still in advance under General Jackson laying towards the Pamunkey, General Hill occupying Mechanicsville and the center and General Longstreet with General D.H. Hill on our right lying immediately on the Chickahominy. Friday morning the general advance en echelon began; General Jackson in advance and far to the left gradually converging to the Chickahominy again; General A.P. Hill in the center and bearing towards Coal Harbor; General Longstreet and General D.H. Hill coming down the Chickahominy to New Bridge. Arrived at Hogan’s house near New Bridge, General Lee awaited the consummation of his strategy. As soon as Jackson arrived at Coal Harbor, General Lee and General Longstreet, accompanied by their respective staffs, rode by Gaines Mills and halted at New Coal Harbor—where they joined General A.P. Hill. Soon the welcome sounds of Jackson’s guns announced his arrival and that the battle had begun. The enemy now occupied a singular position; one portion of his army on the south side of the Chickahominy which fronted Richmond and was confronted by General Magruder—the other portion on the north side had turned their backs on Richmond and fronted destruction in the persons of Lee, Longstreet and Jackson. These last were therefore, advancing on Richmond with their backs to the city; such was the position into which General Lee had forced McClellan. The position which the latter occupied was, however, one of great strength. Jackson having begged the contest, it was taken up by General A.P. Hill in the center and by General D.H. Hill on the left; Longstreet in reserve supported immediately the center under General A.P. Hill. From the beginning of the conflict General Jackson pressed up and D.H. Hill down the Chickahominy. Our wings were thus approaching each other while our center was driving the enemy back upon the river. From 4:00 to 8:00 the battle raged with a display of the utmost daring and intrepidity on the part of the Confederate Army. The enemy lines were finally broken and his strong positions all carried and night covered the retreat. McClellan’s broken and routed columns went to the south side of the Chickahominy. This retreat to the Richmond side of the river was continued during Friday night and the morning of Saturday. Closely watched and pressed by our army, he held his fortified camp on the Chickahominy during Saturday but evacuated it during the night and resumed his retreat. On Saturday, Jackson commanded Bottom’s Bridge and though unable to cross it because it was under the range of enemy guns, prevented its use by the enemy. The retreat which began on the north side of on Friday night yesterday changed into a flight. There were various rumors yesterday and the day before that McClellan had received large reinforcements on his retreat which might assist in accounting for his spirit displayed in the furious battles of Monday and Tuesday. We are unable to ascertain what truth there may be in these rumors but are inclined to believe from such information as we have that McClellan was heavily reinforced before the engagements on the Chickahominy began from the Federal forces in other parts of Virginia and that the reinforcements reported to be on the river are from the same resources. The battle of Tuesday was perhaps the fiercest of the series of bloody encounters during the last seven days. Early on Tuesday morning the enemy, from the position to which he had been driven the night before, continued his retreat in a southeast direction towards the gunboats on the James River. At 8:00 General Magruder re-commenced the pursuit, advancing cautiously but steadily and shelling the forests and swamps in front as he progressed. This method of advancement was kept up throughout the morning and until 1:00 without coming up with the enemy. But between 4:00 and 5:00 our troops left a large open field on the Carter farm. The enemy were discovered strongly entrenched in a dense forest on the other side of this field. Their artillery numbered fifty pieces and could be plainly seen over their freshly dug earthworks. At 4:50 General Magruder order his men to charge across this field and drive the enemy from their positions. Gallantly they sprang to the encounter, rushing into the field at a full run. Instantly from the line of the enemy breastworks a murderous storm of grape and canister was hurled into their ranks with terrible effect. Officers and men went down by the hundreds. The carnage was dreadful. Our line wavered a moment and fell back to the corner of the woods. Two times the effort to carry the position was renewed but each time with the same result. Night at length rendered further attempts futile and the fight until 10:00 at night was kept up by the artillery of both sides. To add to the horrors the enemy boats from their positions at Curl’s Neck, two and a half miles distant, poured on the field continuous broadsides from their immense rifle guns. The monster shells tore shrieking through the forests and exploded with a concussion which seemed to shake the earth itself. At 10:00 the last gun was fired. Each side held the position occupied when the fight began and during the remainder of the night each was busily engaged removing their wounded. At 10:00 Wednesday morning they were still busy and discontinued their labors not because their wounded had all been removed but for fear of our advance. Our wounded were carried from the fields directly to the farm houses in the neighborhoods where after their wounds had been dressed and examined they were brought to this city. During the morning the enemy evacuated his position and retreated still bearing in a south east direction. North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 2, 1862 For some weeks, all eyes have been turned to Richmond and the coming off of the great battle there as the event of the war, if not to settle the destiny of the Confederacy. The opposing force was perhaps the largest and best equipped force ever assembled on the continent. Everybody knew that the Confederate force was large but smaller than the enemy—more poorly clad, provisioned and armed than the enemy. Yet our army has been confident of success and the people of the South have been assured of victory. The long looked for event began on Thursday last. The ball was set in motion upon McClellen’s left wing by a North Carolina brigade led by General Branch. Some other troops of General A.P. Hill joined in and drove back the foe. The troops of General D.H. Hill’s and General Longstreet’s divisions followed suit, carrying the strongest redoubt of the enemy at Mechanicsville at the point of the bayonet. Our brave troops pressed, driving the enemy before them, capturing redoubt after redoubt until the enemy had fallen back several miles. The cost of the killed and wounded to us was severe, causing many a bleeding heart in our good old state and the South would be wrung in anguish but our arms have been triumphant up to the period of this writing. Of the battles of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but little idea can be formed as the accounts have been meager which have come to our hearing and the dispatches and rumors vary. It is, however, certain that wherever our troops have come into contact with the enemy he has been forced to retreat and our victories have been signal. Yet, so far as we can see, there had been no route of McClellan’s forced up to the last actions. He had retreated before our troops, it is said, orderly, burning and destroying his stores and in some cases carrying his dead and wounded. The following are among the officers reported killed and wounded from this state: Major T.L. Skinner of Perquimans(?); col. R.P. Campbell of Iredell; Capt. Jas. A. Wright of Wilmington; Lt. Duncan Haywood of Raleigh; Lt. Grandy (Grundy?) of Oxford; and Lt. Miller, are among the killed. General Pender, Col. Stokes, Col. Reddick, Lt. Col. McDowell, Maj. Hammerskold, Maj. Savage, Capt. W.A. Blount (aide to General Branch) and Adjutant Reddick are named among the wounded. Later: Petersburg, June 30, 1862 The agent of the Associated Press in Richmond says that all accounts agree that McClellan, having been cut off from Pamunkey, is with the remnant of the army in full retreat for the James River where he hopes to escape under the protection of his gun boats. Jackson is certainly in his rear on the east side of the Chickahominy, cutting off his supplies of every kind. North Carolina had (illegible number) regiments in the battle, besides two companies of artillery. The 7th, 3rd, 4th, and 14th are said to have suffered severely. We learn that Lt. Thompson, commanding the Oak City Guards of this city, son of George W. Thompson, Esq., was killed. Captains Hoke, Avery, Corner, and Iverson were wounded. We also learn that Capt. York of this county was slightly wounded. The Ellis Light Artillery, Capt. Manly, though in the action, had not lost a man. Col. Campbell of the 7th N.C.T. was killed in the Battle of Gaines Mills on Tuesday; Major Blount was wounded. Five companies out of eight of the regiment were placed hors de combat. Two hundred of the regiment are missing. Major Edward Savage, Major P.J. Sinclair are reported severely wounded. It is rumored that the enemy entrapped the 1st N.C. Cavalry, Col. Baker on Sunday morning and we regret to learn that Major Crumpler and thirty privates were captured. We hope it is not so. North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 9, 1862 The Battle of the 25th June Camp in the Woods, June 28, 1862 It is remarkable that in all the accounts of the heavy skirmishes that occurred on Wednesday last on the Williamsburg Road where the Battle of 7 Pines occurred on the 31st of May, no mention has been made of the noble brigade commanded by Brig. Gen’l. Robert Ransom, Jr., of N.C. I trust you will permit the world to know a portion of the history of that battle. General Wright began the fight and was aided by General Mahone and the troops they had in the field behaved gallantly; and it must be understood that what I write is not to detract in the least from their just fame; but General Ransom was in it also and although the Yankees have found it out to their sorrow, our own people at home have not learned of it. On Tuesday, General Ransom began moving from Petersburg and his brigade being one of the largest in the service, it was not until daylight Wednesday morning that it reached Richmond. The 25th Regiment under the command of Col. Rutledge was the last to arrive and they did not march out of Richmond until after breakfast on Wednesday morning. They were just ahead of the general and his staff who followed on as soon as the general could call by General Huger’s headquarters and report and receive orders. Barely had General Ransom reached the ground where two of his regiments (24th, 25th) were encamped when he heard firing in front and spurring forward found that three of his regiments, 48th (?) Col. Holt(?), 49th Col. Ramseur, 25th Col. Rutledge, were with the two brigades previously mentioned, engaging the enemy in a desperate fight. They had reached the ground fatigued and jaded but like heroic men they “sailed in” and fought like veterans. The 48th had no less than five regiments opposed to it and had to stand a cross fire but they bore it like heroes and finally drove the whole brigade of Yankee scoundrels from the field. The loss of this regiment was very heavy and several officers were among the killed. The 49th was on the extreme left and though more fortified than the 48th, the losses it sustained pressed on the foe and poured heavy and continuous fire upon them until they finally drove them back. The 25th did not stop marching from the time they left Richmond until they stopped immediately in front of the line of battle to throw off their knapsacks and commence firing. They went in with a perfect vim and behaved gallantly throughout the day. Their loss was not very heavy and the majority of the wounded are but slightly so. The fight continued through the day and part of the night and in the afternoon the 24th, Col. Clarke, 26th, Col Vance, and 35th, Col. Ransom were ordered down, General Ransom having in the field directed their movements in person. Through the whole afternoon the musketry was terrific and the minie balls came whistling by us constantly while now and then a shell would explode within a hundred yards of the position held by the general. The Yankees had their sharp shooters up in trees to pick off the officers and the scoundrels were plainly seen in the rear of their lines and they fired constantly but aimed badly. Our men were much more exposed than the Yankees but the dead they left on the field show very plainly that our men, though fewer in number, were cooler and more fatal shots. Our forces, notwithstanding that they were opposed by an overwhelming force, did not yield “but held their ground through the day and through the night also.” The general and staff slept in the open air upon the field. The three regiments last named, the 24th, 26th, and 35th, were ordered up to the front lines about sunset and as soon as it became dark the Yankees in large force attacked them, shouting and yelling like Indians. But many of them will never yell again; and the whole of them were twice driven back (for they repeated the experiment) and dared not make a third attempt. These latter demonstrations were made against the 26th, Col. Vance, 35th, Col. Ransom. They threw shells and grape, however, repeatedly through the night and grape shot was found the next morning within a few feet of where the general and his staff had slept during the night. About day break on Thursday morning, the enemy opened fire again and this time all along the line of the two regiments named above, and the 24th, Col. Clarke. But they could not stand the return our men gave them having learned to much the day before about their expertness in the use of fire arms and the unflinching manner in which they stood up to their works and therefore retired. A large number of prisoners were taken and the Yankee scoundrels not only left their dead but their wounded also upon the field and even committed the dastardly act of firing on our men in the afternoon while they were giving them water. It is an undisputed fact that the adjutant of the 48th Regiment was stooping down to give water to one of their wounded men when the black hearted vandals fired on him and forced him to leave his canteen but the wounded man, more honorable than his comrades, sent it back to him afterwards by another wounded man who was brought off, he himself refusing to be taken away saying that he knew he had to die and his own friends did not move him. He was not willing to trouble us and would lay there and die. This brigade, general and all, have been on constant duty since it arrived, sleeping in the open air and having skirmishes two or three times day and night all the time. The last occurred late this afternoon when the Yankees took out, leaving their dead scattered over the whole field not burying a single man from the first day to this time. The woods in advance is a dense mass of smoke and there is no doubt they have burned everything and put out “for the other sided of the Jordan”. Rip Van Winkle North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 9, 1862 Camp 24th Regiment N.C.T. (near Richmond) June 27, 1862 As it might interest a portion of your readers to learn from the 24th Regiment, I propose to give you an account of what we have been doing the past three days. On the night of the 24th we arrived within the Richmond lines, much fatigued, our clothes well saturated having passed through heavy showers of rain and having left our tents in Petersburg we bivouacked for the night. At about 8:00 the following morning, the long roll invited us to “fall in” which was soon completed. The regiment was then put in motion and after having gone two miles were halted to await further orders. We were then ordered forward to support a Louisiana battalion which was slowly being driven back by a superior force. Our line was soon under fire and our advance was made difficult by companies commencing on the right. Steadily each company moved forward through an open field until a scope of woods was gained on each side of which was a barren field, the Louisiana men having been driven from these woods. In this advance a few men fell from the well directed minie balls from the Yankee sharp shooters, a portion of Sickles’ brigade. The first two companies having been deployed as skirmishers under the immediate supervision of the colonel—the remainder of the regiment gained the outer skirt of the woods and were for the first time in a position to fire with effect. Lying flat on our faces and occasionally firing whenever the enemy could be seen which was very seldom, we received a brisk shower of bullets—taking but little effect, however, has they passed over us. From the time we began advancing, a battery of two guns, with rifle cannon balls playing upon us passing over with their deadly shrieks, doing no damage—but if ever ground was hugged by men it was done so that day. About 4:00 in the afternoon, the colonel was ordered to charge the battery which had advanced so near that we could hear the officers giving commands to load and fire; we could also hear them running. The battery would have to be charged through an open field under the fire of at least two brigades. The colonel now passed down the line very calmly cheering his men—knowing that as he did that, a very few would ever survive the charge but confident he would take it. But at this juncture of affairs two of our field pieces came up taking a position on our left and by six or so shots from our guns silenced the Yankee battery and had them running. Our battery fired with much more accuracy than the Yankees and its report was much more pleasing to us. The order to charge was then countermanded as the Yankees had withdrawn. However, not the slightest doubt but that the battery could have been taken but the loss of life would have made it a dear purchase. The engagement lasted from 11:00 until dark. Our loss is two killed and seven wounded. Though our list of casualties is small in ratio to the other regiments engaged with us, yet we gained the position we were sent to take, held it and now hold it. This is the first time, though in service over twelve months that the traveling, peaceful, gallant, dashing and bloody 24th has ever smelt gunpowder. What was affected by our fire is not known. Two field officers were seen to fall and it is generally believed the enemy’s loss was considerable. It was felt by some that Col. Clarke would be too daring and impetuous on the battle field but the cool and determined manner in which he maneuvered his regiment under fire won the admiration and entire confidence of all of us. This in my opinion accounts for our small loss. Cupid North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 30, 1862 24th Regiment The day and night of the 26th were spent quietly in camp which was bivouacked in a pine grove on the Williamsburg Road near the field of battle known as the Seven Pines where our soldiers have often proved themselves by their valor worthy of the freedom for which they are struggling. But this is no time for rest and we were soon reminded by an order to march that we had not been brought here to waste hours in idleness. The signal for “roast beef” (bacon and crackers) was soon followed by the order to “fall in” and in a few minutes we were en route to relieve three regiments who had been on picket duty since the evening of the 26th. The left of our line rested on the Williamsburg Road and the right occupied a rifle pit which had that morning been taken from the enemy by Col. Vance’s regiment. As the colonel was retiring to give place for us and had withdrawn from the shelter of the pits the enemy opened fire upon him from the dense woods in front and wounded three of his men. The gallant colonel at once resumed his position, and incensed at the cowardly attack, stepped out in front of the lines and waving his cap, called upon the sneaking scoundrels to come on, that he was ready for them. The invitation was not accepted and a few minutes afterwards his regiment retired and ours occupied the rifle pits with orders to hold them at all hazards. The line we were called to defend extended nearly a mile through deep swamps and dense thickets. Colonel Clarke and Major Love were on the left while the right was under the immediate command of Lt. Col. Harris. During the night two sharp attacks along our entire front with musketry and howitzers were made by the enemy. Our brave fellows repulsed both with slight loss but we afterwards learned, inflicted a severe punishment upon the enemy. Early the next morning, the order came to advance upon the foe and ascertain his position and strength. The night had been sleepless—but the men seemed eager to see the enemy whom thus far they had only felt and heard. Stepping out of the rifle pits the line was quickly formed and throwing out scouts in advance we moved steadily on in open order and as rapidly as the dense undergrowth would permit. Our approach was soon discovered and a rapid and heavy fire in musketry was opened on us, aided almost immediately by shells from the battery which had annoyed us so much the night before, throwing all their shells into our midst, fortunately, however, doing no harm. Stepping forward from tree to tree our brave fellows kept on driving the enemy before them and forced them back to their trenches which were too strong and too numerously defended for our small force to attack. Having accomplished the object of our movement, we fell back in good order, bringing many trophies and three prisoners, the enemy prudently staying in their works. In a few hours, we were relieved and they made the enemy beat a hasty retreat, leaving the ground strewn with their arms and knapsacks. As soon as this retrograde movement was discovered, our entire force was ordered forward in pursuit, which was conducted as rapidly as the obstructions thrown in our way by the retreating soldiers would permit. By almost noon on the 1st July, we came up within striking distance of McClellan’s Army, whom we found engaged by Longstreet’s and Magruder’s divisions. Our whole brigade (Ransom’s) was immediately formed in the woods, on the left, to repel an expected attack in that quarter. We could distinctly hear the rattle of small arms which showed that the battle was raging on our right while the shells which constantly fell near us indicated that the enemy were aware of or suspected our position. Armistead’s brigade was on our right, similarly situated for the same purpose. In an hour or two, it moved off to take part in the battle and the shouts of the men and more furious discharges of musketry soon told us that they were in the thickest part of the fight. It was our turn next, and not long after the 24th being on the right of the brigade, was marched up to the edge of a deep ravine into which the enemy shells were falling thick and fast and laying down, awaited further orders. In front of this position, distant about a mile, lay the enemy in strong force behind heavy batteries. The intervening space was an open, undulating country without shelters of any kind—and across this our troops advanced for hours, charging in the face of a superior force of infantry and the best of McClellan’s batteries, aided by the heavy guns of the Monitor, which was lying in the James River within range of the field. The enemy fought desperately, well knowing that upon the result of that days fight depended the salvation of his army. Obedience to the stern order “that battery must be taken” coming directly from General Lee himself, Col. Clarke commanded us to advance without waiting for the rest of the brigade which, having further to march, had not yet arrived. Promptly and eagerly every man sprang to his feet and advanced a few paces into the open field, halted and dressed. In line of battle, the gallant fellows, led by the colonel who by general order was dismounted, dashed at a double quick across the field, already covered with the dead and dying and regardless of the danger and the fearful evidence of it around; each man seemed to be mindful only of the honor of the “Old North State”. At two thirds of the distance, the colonel halted his regiment to breathe, for the race, the heat, and the speed were exhausting—and ordered them to lie down. At this point we were joined by the rest of the brigade and advancing within 75 yards of the enemy positions delivered a fire which prisoners taken by our regiment declare to have been terribly destructive. We then charged, led by the colonel and shouting “North Carolina”, “North Carolina”, till we were so near the battery that it seemed about to fall into our hands—when a fire of musketry and grape was hurled upon us before which humanity could not stand. The command was given to retire and our regiment fell back in perfect order about one hundred yards. We were not beaten but repulsed and were eager to continue the fight. But it was now quite dark and any other movements such as was necessary to carry so strong a position was not possible. All that could be done was to bring off the command in safety, an undertaking of no little difficulty but one which our colonel accomplished with so much success that next morning all answered to their names except one who had fallen upon the field or had been taken by the enemy while charging with his friends. Our proximity to the enemy and the length of time we remained on the field may be judged by the fact that we carried off with us two of the enemy’s pickets whom he had thrown out after the battle was over. Captain William R. Gulley was killed while leading his men and his last words as he fell were “Boys I am killed—but stand by your company”. Lts. John T. Townsend and Cornelius Page were also killed and while in their death we mourn the loss of three more gallant soldiers we cannot but rejoice that our list of casualties is so small.

Adjutant, 24th Regiment North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 16, 1862 38th Regiment A word in your paper from a soldier who was in the late great battles may be interesting to some especially to those who have friends and relatives in the 38th. On the 25th June our regiment and a large portion of our army before Richmond took up its march for the grand scene of action; on in silent procession it went until 10:00 when blankets were spread and repose taken until dawn of Thursday aroused us. About 2:00 on that day, 26th June, our march commenced. We passed the Chickahominy on the Meadow Bridge which is a little east of north from Richmond; now the Yankee pickets began fleeing for their lives, leaving behind them oil cloths, knapsacks, haversacks, portfolios, books and every Yankee notion and trick imaginable. But soon the boom of the cannons announced that the foe was going to meet us in deadly conflict. Our numerous regiments were thrown out in line of battle attacking their extreme right. Now in good earnest the Yankee shells began falling and bursting in every direction around us; on our brave columns advanced towards their thundering batteries; soon our batteries opened upon them and such awful cannonading, many of us never heard before. Onward our troops moved baring their breasts to the storm of the shells until the command was made “charge that battery”. Then the regiment charged that battery and that regiment charged another one, etc. Then volley after volley of musketry was poured into our brave ranks in rapid succession with frightful effect. Now we learned the horrors of war. The roar of thousands of muskets added to the terrific thunder of belching cannons and bursting shells made the scene more awful and wild than any ever witnessed by man or our brave boys. But onward was our motto. As it is only my purposed to say a word about our regiment for the interest of those who are connected with it, I must be pardoned for not mentioning others and the part they noble acted. Then our regiment under Col. W.J. Hoke rushed forward according to orders to charge a battery. As we swept onward on the double quick a perfect hail storm of lead fell around us from the Yankee entrenchments, made for the protection of their battery. Before we reached the battery our colonel saw that it was impossible to take it; a creek was between us and it and in front of their ditches they had cut down a host of large pines in every direction so that it was impossible almost to crawl among them much less charge through them. In addition to that, there was at least four Yankees in their ditches shooting directly at us. So our brave colonel, seeing the murderous fire pouring into our ranks and the impossibility of capturing the battery, immediately ordered a retreat which was executed with as good order as circumstances would allow, our regiment only falling back out of range of their guns. In this charge our regiment had lost about 146 killed and wounded out of less than 400 who entered the action—another regiment charged upon the same battery and shared the same fate as ours not even being able to get to their entrenchments for the obstructions thrown in their way. But our troops swept other parts of the field and by flank movements we would have driven the last foe from the field if the mantle of night had not closed the scene. We all slept upon the field the dead and wounded around us. From our repose on the 27th the dawn aroused us and again the line of battle was formed and our whole brigade (Pender’s) now charged upon the same battery, throwing ourselves under the protection of our batteries and it was amusing to see them skipping from their fortifications and fleeing to the bushes and ravines for shelter from the keen eyes of our boys. Though our loss was heavy, a general shout of victory went up from every heart as we stood victors upon the field. The Yankees you will recollect were in camp all down the north side of the Chickahominy for miles, their batteries and fortifications fronting Richmond. Instead of crossing the river in front of these fortifications as they expected we began our attack on their extreme right; and having put them to flight in the first fight we commenced our march down the north side of the river after them, passing through camp after camp finding commissary, quartermaster’s and sutler’s stores in great abundance and all kinds of equipment. On we marched for hours without modesty, passing through this Yankee city of camps until about 3:00 when their rear guard resisted with great bravery in order to give the main body of McClellan’s army time to form itself with the greatest advantage. When the Young Napoleon was ready, the bloody tragedy was opened and the collision was awful. All seemed busy in this awful scene; thousands were hurling the missiles of death; it seemed as though Heaven was hurling the missiles of death; it seemed as though Heaven was raining bullets and balls; hundreds were engaged in carrying the wounded to the rear and scores of ambulances were running, conveying them away to the hospitals. Thus there was the co-mingling roar of cannon and musketry blending with the groans of the mangled and wounded until near dusk when all the horrible scene of misery and death died away to be followed by the thrilling notes of praise and loud shouts of victory that rang through hill and dale from many thousands of hearts made wild with the joy of victory. Again we slept victorious upon a hard won field while the enemy sought repose and safety, no doubt, at a considerable distance away. Sunday was spent in burying the dead both ours and the Yankees. Early Sabbath morning we took up our line of march for the south side of the Chickahominy, all the enemy having crossed—all now on the south side of the river between it and the James. About 10:00 pm Sabbath evening we spread our blankets under dripping skies to catch a few moments repose after a tiresome march through a continual cloud of dust during the day. The gilding of the western hilltops by Monday’s rising sun bid us pack up and pursue our Yankee chase which had been our daily business since the Thursday before. Our columns moved off down the Chickahominy. About 3:00 pm our brigade was filed out in columns by regiments in the woods near the road and immediately the incessant peel of thunder from an angry sky. The enemy’s artillery opened upon us from a hill just in our front, the howling shells flew thick among us, so terrible was their cannonading that it was a long time before our artillery could get in position; in fact it accomplished very little in this fight. The only change being left to us was to drive them with the cold steel. So our brave boys spread out in line of battle and poured volley upon volley of musketry into them; charged upon them and drove them from the field, taking all their artillery. Again we reposed upon the field of victory while the enemy was fleeing form our presence. The enemy being so hard pressed, he found it necessary to his partial safety to make a stand the next day (Tuesday), not far from the same place. So Tuesday’s sun fell upon the most bloody and desperately contested conflict of the war. It was an awful scene to pass over the field of carnage and see the mangled dead laying so thick over so vast a space. The enemy had much the advantage of us in position and fought with great valor. Night closed the cruel drama, our troops again sleeping upon the field of action. The dawn on Wednesday, however, found the foe in full retreat for a refuge more safe to them. Gunboats were their only hope. So leaving their dead and part of their wounded in our care, they fled in great haste felling trees and blocking our way. Today finds us here near the enemy with a good prospect for a fight. What the issue of the next will be I cannot tell; but one thing is certain, we have driven them gloriously from every position they have taken until now when they are 25 miles instead of 5 miles from Richmond. Our colonel being wounded in the first battle and the lieutenant colonel being sick, our regiment has been under the command of our Major L.D. Andrews of Randolph County. He has had his hands full in this great series of struggles but he still holds up though much wearied and worn out with the vast amount of toil and responsibility weighing upon him.

McLaughlin No Report North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 16, 1862 Camp of the 26th Regiment, N.C.T., Cruise’s Field, July 3, 1862 Supposing that our friends in the Old North State would like to know of our where abouts since our arrival in the Old Dominion, I concluded I would give you a sketch of what we have seen and done since we left our camps above Kinston. On the evening of the 19th June, Col. Vance announced to the regiment that the next day we would leave for Richmond to take part in the struggles. We left the next day and arrived in Petersburg on the 24th June and were marched to the large market house where we stopped for the night; were marched out the next morning one mile from the city and pitched our tents with General Ransom’s brigade. We remained there until Tuesday evening when we left for Richmond, arrived there about midnight and were marched to the capitol and slept on the beautiful grounds. Here we received many attentions from the citizens of Richmond and especially from Governor Letcher who threw open his doors to us. Next morning we left for the “Seven Pines”, the noted battlefield of the 30th and 31st May. Arriving within one mile of the battlefield we stopped to refresh ourselves a little and then marched down to where a spirited engagement was going on between our forces and the Yankees. Our regiment was soon thrown into the line of battle and has been so ever since, until now, except when marching through mud and water under going all sorts of hardships. Being without tents and a good deal of the time drenched with rain—all of which was have endured as good soldiers, ready and willing to do and suffer all things for the good of the country. At Seven Pines we had several severe skirmish fights with the Yankees, always driving them back and advancing our lines of pickets until Sunday morning when we took possession of their entire camps and breast works. Our engagement at this place deserves special mention. Our regiment had advanced about one mile to where the enemy were throwing up entrenchments. We drove them out, took possession of the same and captured all their spades and pick axes and a number of guns. We occupied these trenches all day or until about sunset when the 24th N.C. Regiment was sent to relieve us. About the time it arrived and we were leaving the entrenchments the Yankees poured in a heavy volume of musketry upon us but without doing much harm. No sooner was this done than Colonel Vance called to his men to rally again in the entrenchments which was obeyed promptly. The colonel displayed great bravery in this fight as he has in every one in which his regiment has been engaged, seldom if ever surpassed by any officer, waling up and down the line of battle, encouraging his men. We all love him and will die around him if need be. The Yankees in their stampede at the Seven Pines destroyed a great amount of commissary stores burning up all they could not carry away. We started about 12:00 Sunday in pursuit of them and got within one mile of them and opened fire upon them with our artillery which was kept up till late at night when the firing ceased on both sides. Morning came and the Yankees had left---leaving behind thousands of dollars worth of clothing, guns and tools. Our boys were eager to gather the rifles. We pressed on and passed by the battlefield of Monday; the ground was covered with dead and wounded Yankees as well as numbers of our own poor fellows. On Tuesday evening the battle at this place (Cruise’s Field) commenced, which according to the numbers engaged was the hardest of the fighting attended with as much slaughter. Our brigade was brought into action late in the evening and marched into the field in the face of heavy cannonading. The 26th went into action yelling at the top of their voices and the field of battle showed the next morning what part we had taken in the conflict when several of her boys were found dead within fifty paces of the Yankee battery. The firing ceased about midnight leaving the Confederates in possession of the field. The Yankees left by daylight the next morning and our forces are still in pursuit. To those who are not accustomed to look upon the field of battle the scene is awful and I long to see a termination of these hostilities and peace restored to our country once more. It affords me much pleasure to report that all our field officers, as well as the commander behaved with marked bravery.

Bright, John Wayne The regiment went into the fight at Coal Harbor with (illegible number, maybe six) guns and charged alone and unsupported upon the battery on the extreme right of the enemy lines supported by the 12th and 14th U.S. Regulars and a regiment of volunteers. The infantry were driven in and the battery carried. The colonel was shot down before reaching it. The Lt. Col. Was killed sitting on one of the guns. At this moment either the enemy or some dastard gave the order to retreat which the Lt. Col., hearing, repeated and the regiment fell back losing heavily in their retreat. Both officers and men agree that they could have held the battery but for the order to retreat. The distance charged over was (illegible) yards across an open field, up hill. When other troops afterwards charged and carried the battery the regiment joined them. Since the fight, the regiment has been engaged again in battle on Tuesday evening suffering severe losses but they are not yet reported R.P. James, Adj., 20th N.C.T.

Derosset 2nd Lt., Acting Adjt. 3rd N.C.T. Camp 1st N.C. Cavalry, near Richmond, July 5, 1862 Mr. Editor: From a paragraph in your paper this week it would appear that the 1st N.C. Cavalry had been entrapped by the enemy which was not the case. I give you, therefore, a true statement of the circumstances. General Lee desired information in regard to the strength and movements of the enemy on our route. Col. Baker received orders June 28 to make a reconnaissance of the enemy’s left wing moving in the direction of the Chickahominy and was ordered to find out and report the position and strength of the enemy in that quarter. Accordingly, on the morning of the 29th June we drove in their pickets at Willis’ Church and encountered one hundred of their cavalry which we charged upon and drove into their camp. The charge was most gallantly led by Colonel Baker. The men without a single exception behaved with bravery and coolness under a heavy fire of cannon and musketry for more than one half mile and then retreated in good order. It was a bold and daring thing but it was not reckless. The orders were positive. Every possible precaution had been taken and the course pursued was necessary. I give you a list of the killed and missing. Major Crumpler was severely wounded and fell from his horse near one of the batteries but has been retaken and the surgeon hopes for his recovery.

North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 9, 1862 As many of our readers feel a deep concern for Colonel Vance and his regiment we will state what we know of his movements and situation since he left Richmond. The Colonel arrived at Richmond on the 26th, his regiment forming a part of General Ransom’s brigade. He rested an hour or two in the public square and then proceeded under orders to the neighborhood of Seven Pines where he had a sharp skirmish with the enemy. He took part with his regiment in the terrible struggle on Tuesday below Richmond. We have seen no account of the killed and wounded of his regiment in that battle but we learn that the brigade to which Col. Vance was attached charged for one and a quarter mile under fire of 32 pieces of artillery with shells weighing 800 pounds falling on the field from the enemy gun boats. Col. Vance’s regiment behaved nobly. They never faltered but went forward shouting “for old North Carolina” and “old Zeb”. The colonel was in front. Four of his gallant dead were found the next morning within forty feet of the cannon’s mouth, ahead of every other southern regiment for no other dead were found so near the guns. Captain John Jones of Caldwell, getting separated from his regiment in the darkness and confusion, passed straight on towards the flashing guns until he was stopped and turned back by General Ransom. It was a glorious affair for all arms and among the bravest of the brave on that occasion were Vance and his regiment. We learn that General Ransom’s brigade to which Col. Vance belonged has been transferred from General Huger’s to General Longstreet’s division and that the latter division is near the enemy on the James River.

Burgess North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 23, 1862 26th Regiment Drury’s Bluff, July 11, 1862 Mr. Editor: Your numerous readers will be pleased to hear from the 26th Regiment, N.C.T. Since the 20th ult., when we left Mosely Hall, we have seen what is called active service. And though we have been more than once in the carnage of battle, when all around was darkness lit by the musket flash and the cannon’s glare, it has been our fortune to suffer but a slight loss. Those who have fallen, however, were endeared to us by many noble qualities having, with unshrinking courage, always stood among the foremost in the hour of danger. Several of our sick have been removed from the Richmond hospital to Lynchburg, Petersburg and other places where their wants may be better provided for. In the recent “battles of Richmond” while all our troops fought with light hearts and the most determined courage, still it is well known to all that the highest praise is eminently due to the troops from North Carolina and Georgia. These two states among the jewels of the Confederacy, shone brightest when batteries would be charged or breast works stormed. The blood of their sons has been freely shed—not a swamp nor a hill below Richmond but has drunk deeply of the life tide of their free men. Chatham North Carolina Standard Raleigh July 23, 1862 A correspondent of the Charlotte Democrat, writing from Petersburg, gives an account of the part taken by the 48th N.C. Regiment in the fight of the 26th June near Richmond, thus alludes to Lt. Henry M. Miller of this city. He is the son of Henry W. Miller, Esq., of this city: “It would be unjust to omit in this description of the fight the name of the intrepid and gallant H.M. Miller of Raleigh. He had been acting as adjutant for some time in this regiment where he was a universal favorite but had gone home and returned only a day or two before the battle. He did not belong to the regiment but acted as lieutenant in one of the companies as both of the officers were sick. When some confusion and hesitation was exhibited by the color bearer in advancing with the colors, and the Lt. Colonel was about to bear them forward himself, Lt. H.M. Miller asked permission to carry the colors, which was granted and he bore them heroically in front up to the very lines of the enemy and upon the order of Colonel Hill and to induce the enemy to come out of cover, he planted them some ten paces in front of our lines and told the colonel that if he wished it he would stand by the colors himself. When the fight was closing, Mr. Miller heard a wounded Yankee just before him crying out for water and ran forward and gave him his canteen he was fired upon by some Yankee and came near being killed. The regiment fells justly proud of him and the country and his parents should know of his gallantry.” Richmond, Va., July 15 Mr. Editor: There was no braver charge in the great battles before Richmond then that made by the 1st N.C.R. on the evening of Thursday, June 27. In obedience to a reckless and inconsiderate order from their Brigadier General, they rushed upon a battery located in the strongest possible position, supported by long lines of rifle pits and which could only be approached by marching down a steep hill and then through a marshy ravine made almost impassable by abattis, deep ditches and every obstacle that military genius could suggest. Undaunted by the terrific fire to which they were exposed, and regardless of the obstructions which rendered success impossible, they marched steadily on to their appointed work and only retired when the hopelessness of the task was made apparent by the falling back of all other regiments and ordered to retreat from the officer in command. In this desperate charge all the field officers were wounded—the colonel and major mortally—while the loss of life among the company officers and privates was most fearful; and yet not a man faltered or dreamed of retreating until compelled to retire by the officer in charge. The 3rd Regiment was also engaged under the gallant and lamented Meares and covered itself with glory. Spectator North Carolina Standard Raleigh August 27, 1862 30th N.C.R. Richmond August 12 The casualties of Company D in the battles before Richmond embracing the 26th June and ending the 1st July are as follows: Killed on the field: Ptes. J.F. Jones, Jas. Whelans, A.M.

Gardner, John L. Joyner, C.T. Mangum, W.H.C. Pollard, J.T. Pearce, George W. Pearce, John Vaughn, S.S.D. Williams, slight. Missing: Corp. J.D. Allen On Saturday previous to the commencement of the battle on Tuesday, Captain Eugene Grissom was severely wounded in a skirmish with the enemy pickets by a minie ball passing through the right shoulder. Consequently the company was commanded by 1st Lt. C.N. Allen, who led his men through the thickest of the fighting like a gallant hero. Our captain who is very much missed by his company, is mending and I am in hopes will soon be able to renew his service to his country by assuming command again. John T. Nichols, Ord. Sgt., Company D 30th Regiment N.C.T. Fayetteville Observer, Monday, June 2, 1862 The Wounded of Col. McRae’s Regiment: The Richmond Whig is indebted to a “paroled prisoner who has just reached this city, for the following list of wounded in the 5th N.C. at the battle of Williamsburg, who are now at the Fortress Monroe Hospital and who are all doing well.

Among them the only general officers are the gallant North Carolinian General Pender who was slightly wounded in the hand and Gen. Elty. Of other North Carolinians, the killed reported are Col. Campbell of Iredell, of the 7th; Capt. Jas. A. Wright of Wilmington, of the 1st, an accomplished gentleman and gallant officer, whom we mourn as a friend; Maj. Skinner of Chowan, we believe, of the 1st; Lt. Grandy; Lt. Duncan C. Haywood of Raleigh, son of the late Senator Haywood, of the 7th. Of wounded, we have Major Benjamin R. Huske of this town of the 48th, struck by a ball in the foot, on Wednesday. Lt. John H. Anderson, also of this town, and of the same regiment, in the fleshy part of the leg, same day. Col. J.H. Lane, of the 28th, formerly of the Bethel Regiment, severely and will probably lose an arm. Capt. Benjamin R. Moore of Salisbury, adjutant of the 16th Regiment, painfully but not dangerously in the thigh. Col. Stokes of Wilkes, of the 1st, badly wounded in the leg. Lt. Col. John A. McDowell of Bladen, also of the 1st, badly wounded in the shoulder. Col. Riddick of Gates, of the 34th, in the leg. Adjutant Riddick, also of the 34th, severely. Major Hammerskold, contusion. Capt. W.A. Blount, aide to General Branch, shot through the arm.

Davis, Acting Adjutant Fayetteville Observer, Monday, July 21, 1862 Camp near Drury’s Bluff, Va., July 12, 1862 As I have no doubt there are many anxious to hear from the Cumberland Plow boys since the fight before Richmond, I will give you a list of all the casualties in the Company: Private Leonard Edge of Bladen Co., wounded in the left arm, amputation was necessary. Private Amos Sessoms fell on the field in the battle of the 1st inst. In his death the company has lost one of its best members, and Cumberland one of her best soldiers. No other casualties in the company. The company is in tolerably good health, has had a hard time for a few weeks but all hope for better times soon. It is no more than justice to say that Col. Clarke has the entire confidence of the regiment and has endeared himself to all of us in the late battles before Richmond. Your Obedient Servant J.B.D. Battle Ground Near Richmond, July 4, 1862 We left our encampment on the 26th, about sundown, the Yankees shelling us. We were transferred to General Pender’s Brigade, in A.P. Hill’s Division. We crossed the Chickahominy Thursday afternoon and attacked the Yankees about 4:00. The 38th, under Col. Hoke, were ordered to take a strong battery, at Ellyson’s Mills. The enemy poured a galling fire into us for more than half a mile, but the 38th led on by Adjutant Cowles, pressed forward. The ground had not been reconnoitered and before we were aware of it, we had to descend a steep hillside in front of the battery. At this time a perfect hail storm of cannon balls, grape shot, canister and small arms were poured into us, Col Hoke and Adjutant Cowles were wounded in the thigh, Lt. M.F. Covington, Privates N.B. Covington and James Bostick of the Richmond Boys, were killed and 13 wounded. We lost nearly half the regiment in killed and wounded. I thought that I had seen hard fighting in Mexico, but this action was the most furious that I had ever witnessed. The 1st N.C. Regiment under Col. Stokes was ordered up and met the same fate of the 38th. The regiment suffered badly. The 44th Georgia and the 1st S.C. were ordered up and met the same fate; many were killed and wounded. I remained on the field during the night, and gave the wounded water, and assisted them the best I could. The scene was horrible. We were ordered into line of battle about the break of day, when the roar of the cannon and the cracking of small arms were again heard. We fought until about 8:00 when the enemy gave way from their entrenchments. We were under a cross fire from the right and left and also from the front, and a great deal of timber was felled towards us so as to make it almost impossible to get through. Had our forces had their position, we would have laughed and bid the storm of war blow on. The enemy fell back, and in the evening we attacked them again, Gen. Jackson in the meantime having joined our forces. Maj. R. C. Wheat, a brave and gallant officer and my 3rd Lt. in the Mexican War was killed leading the charge. His last words were “bury me on the field of battle.” Our loss it is true was heavy but the ground was literally covered with dead Yankees. We did not find a great many of their wounded. We slept on our arms that night. The next day we crossed the Chickahominy and attacked the enemy about 4:00 Monday evening. The fight was desperate. General Pender displayed great gallantry and cosiness on the occasion. We took a considerable number of cannon and small arms and captured General McCall. Our loss was heavy, but nothing to compare with the enemy. We fought again on Tuesday and cut the enemy to pieces. Philo Casualties in the 14th N.C.

Its heaviest losses were on the last named day. The Brigade to which it belongs, General G.B. Anderson’s, General D.H. Hill’s Division, is said to have been the first of five that were thrown forward to charge the battery on Malvern Hill. The battery was too much for them and they were ordered to fall back. Owing to extensive sickness in the regiment, contracted on the line of the Warwick during the Spring, it was not able to take into action more than 230 men. And in the recent fights it was commanded by Capt. Johnson of Company A, Col. Roberts, since died, Lt. Col. Bennett and Major Dixon, since died, being sick in Richmond with typhoid fever.
