    It is stated that nine divisions of our army have crossed the Potomac.  General D.H. Hill of this 
    state is in the lead.  We probably have, therefore, in Maryland, no less than 140,000 men with 
    General Hill with North Carolina troops in the lead.  This is an honor for the old north state, 
    which will be fully sustained by our troops.
    Perfectly reliable information from the army in Maryland is hard to obtain.  A dispatch to the 
    Charleston paper dated the 12th states that General “Stonewall” Jackson has encountered the 
    enemy within 15 miles of Baltimore and beaten him but it is not confirmed.  Marylanders who 
    reported on the 10th say our army was in possession of the Relay House; that Stuart’s Cavalry 
    had destroyed Buck River Bridge on the Baltimore and Philadelphia Railroad, and that the 
    citizens of Baltimore had arisen en masse and beaten the Yankee troops and hung several 
    wretches.  These rumors are premature or without foundation.
    The most reliable account is that nine divisions of our army have crossed the Potomac—had 
    taken possession of Frederick City and that General Jackson’s column had advanced as far 
    as Hanover, York County, Pennsylvania about 83 miles from Harrisburg.
    It is stated that on the 8th General D.H. Hill’s division occupied Hagerstown and that at 
    Pooleville a fight occurred in which we captured 1,000 prisoners and a large quantity of stores.  
    Bacon was to be had in abundance at ten cents a pound.  General Lee had notified the 
    government not to send any more supplies.
    Colonel Bradley T. Johnston led the first of our regiments into Frederick.  He had been 
    appointed Provost Marshall of that place.  Ex-Governor Lowe of Maryland had been appointed 
    provisional governor by President Davis.  Our commanders had proclaimed to the Marylanders 
    that they had come as friends and not as enemies and thousands were flocking to our standards.
    Great excitement prevails throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania and the entire nation.  The 
    defense of Washington claims the first attention of the Yankees but the Confederacy will 
    evidently strike at other points first.  Up to this present writing we have no other important

    Winchester, Va., September 22
    The commands of Generals Jackson, Lawton and A.P. Hill reached Martinsburg on Saturday 
    morning, 13th inst., upon the road to Harper’s Ferry.  General McLaws marched towards the 
    Maryland Heights.  These forces invested the place and compelled its surrender.
    Meanwhile, Generals D.H. Hill and Longstreet engaged the advancing army of McClellan with 
    a portion of their forces on Sunday, 14th inst.  The engagement was severe but the object of 
    deterring the main force from the relief of Harper’s Ferry was accomplished.  In this 
    engagement the loss in hard fighting was severe and General Garland of Lynchburg was killed 
    gallantly commanding his brigade.
    On Sunday evening the Federal forces commanded by General White and Colonel Miles (who 
    since died of his wounds), driven back from Maryland Heights after a sharp engagement by 
    General McLaws, finding themselves surrounded, consented to surrender.  The formal surrender 
    was made on Monday morning.  11,000 prisoners, 60 pieces of cannon and a large supply of 
    ammunition, etc., were captured. 
    After Sunday’s battle, Generals Longstreet and D.H. Hill fell back five miles from Boonesborough 
    on the Shepardstown Road to the high bluffs on this side of the Antietam River, a short distance 
    beyond Sharpsburg.  The great army of McClellan, Burnside, Porter, Heinzelman, etc., followed 
    and General Jackson made haste to join our forces.   On Tuesday evening he reached the 
    battlefield and attacked the left wing of the enemy.
    In the plan of battle, the left wing was commanded by General Jackson. The center was held 
    by General D.H. Hill and the right wing by General Longstreet.  The battle begun the evening 
    before was resumed by General Jackson on the left wing about 3:00 on Wednesday morning 
    and by 6:00 became general all along the line. Our army formed the segment of a circle and 
    was pressed upon by a force greatly larger about three to one.
    At about 10:00 General Jackson was reinforced on the left wing by the fine troops of General 
    McLaws. At 2:00 the enemy was severely whipped on that wing and driven back fully a mile.  
    The fight at the center was terribly severe but the troops of General D.H. hill resolutely and to 
    the end maintained their ground.  But it was of the utmost moment to the enemy to turn our 
    right flank in order to cut off our communication with the Virginia shore near Shepardstown.
    The pressure on the corps of Longstreet was almost irresistible and anxiety as to the result 
    grew intense.  When General A.P. Hill brought up the reserve from Harper’s ferry to the relief 
    of General Longstreet at about 3:00, to reinstate the doubtful fortune of that day, which, 
    closing, left our troops in possession of all the ground they had held at the opening of the 
    battle and so much of the enemy’s had been wrested from him by Jackson and McLaws.
    The battle continued uninterruptedly for 13 hours.  Never have our troops, exhausted as they 
    were, exhibited their courage and endurance to such advantage; never has the enemy 
    contested a field so obstinately.
    Our loss in killed was not too great though we are called upon to lament the fall of several 
    gallant and distinguished officers.  General Starke of Jackson’s command, the Louisiana 
    Brigade and General L. O’B. Branch of North Carolina are numbered with the dead.
    The day succeeding the battle our troops were under arms, awaiting a renewal of the 
    engagement but the enemy found itself in no condition to try it again.  The dead were 
    buried, the wounded removed to Shepardstown and with the night fall came the general order 
    under which the trains and troops were sent across the river by the next morning’s dawn 
    without loss or casualty.
    Our troops having crossed the river safely, the enemy soon appeared on the opposite bank 
    to commence heavy shelling which was answered by our battery.  This duel continued 
    throughout most of the day but the enemy did not attempt to cross the river.  On the next 
    morning, however, they advance of the enemy was heralded by heavy cannonading and 
    subsequently one or two brigades attempted to cross the river.  A part were suffered to 
    ascend the bank upon this side to receive a very warm reception from the troops of Jackson.  
    Their column, thrown into confusion, attempted to re-cross the river when the grape of our 
    masked batteries told a fearful tale of death and destruction.  The troops were the flower of 
    Burnside’s division and the ford of the Potomac was filled with them.  Few could have escaped.
    We have had fearful admonitions on the severity of the recent battle in Maryland which have 
    fallen upon our brave North Carolina troops. Strange to say, up to this time we have received 
    but few facts in relation to the troops.  The following dispatch received by the Wilmington 
    Journal contains most fearful accounts:
    “Richmond, Virginia, 9-22—The loss of the 3rd Regiment in the Battle of the 17th, is 8 
    officers killed, 20 wounded and 350 of our men killed and wounded.  Col. De Rosset is 
    severely wounded; Lt. De Rosset slightly; Captain Meares, Lt. Quince and perhaps Lt. 
    Cowan killed.”
    The following highly interesting letter written by a soldier in the 2nd N.C.R. to his wife and 
    mother is dated Charlestown, Va., 21st Sept.
    We left our camp near Frederick City on Wednesday morning, 10th inst., and marched 
    through the city in the direction of Hagerstown.  As we passed through the city a respectable 
    show of favor was shown to us by the lady secessionists of the burg but it was not very large 
    and had the appearance of cordiality mixed with a lively fear of the consequences.  We 
    marched all day over a beautiful mountain turnpike that at times gave us beautiful views of 
    the country, and camped at night at South Mountain Gap of the Blue Ridge, having passed 
    through during the day several little villages that lay nestled down among the valleys.  The 
    largest was Middleton, a village of perhaps 1,000 inhabitants, who showed by their signs 
    that they were for the most part hostile to our cause.
    Little did I think as I stood that night on picket duty on the mountain that in a few short days 
    a battle would be fought on the very spot I then stood.  I had a beautiful view of sun rise from 
    the top of the mountain the next morning but was too sleepy to appreciate it.  Soon we were 
    again inline and trudged over the mountain gap and then down into the Allegheny Valley.  The 
    tops of the mountains could be seen away to the west.  We passed through several villages 
    that day, also through the towns of Boonesborough, one of the oldest places in Maryland and 
    camped for the night four miles from Hagerstown in a beautiful old grove.  Here we rested on 
    Friday and Saturday the first two days rest we had since leaving Richmond.  I had a good 
    opportunity while there to ascertain the sentiments of the people, two thirds of whom I found 
    hostile to us.  Indeed but few families did I find but had brothers or sons in the Yankee army.
    Here our army split.  Longstreet with three divisions went to in the direction of Williamsport on 
    Saturday; McLaws and Jones went towards Harpers Ferry while we, D.H. Hill’s division, 
    remained.  Saturday  night we were called to arms soon after we had laid down and away we 
    went back to Boonseborough and by daylight were on top of South Mountain Gap and were 
    soon drawn up in lines of battle to the right and left of the road fronting in the direction of 
    Middleton where the day before our cavalry had a sharp fight with the enemy and had reported 
    the enemy advancing in force with a column of 20,000 men.
    South Mountain is on the south side of the road and is entirely wooded.  North Mountain, on the 
    north side of the road, is more or less open and for the most part, farmed.  Away in the distance 
    we could see the long lines of the enemy approaching looking like long, crooked, black shadows 
    slowly moving towards us.  
    As small as our force was, Garland’s, Ripley’s and Anderson’s brigades (Rhodes’ division), we 
    drew up to meet them.  Garland was put away over in the woods on South Mountain, Ripley to 
    the left on North Mountain while we of Anderson’s brigade held the Gap Road, or center.
    Artillery was put in position and by sunrise the reverberation of its thunder went rolling up over
    the cliffs.  The enemy also opened and a sharp artillery duel was kept up for over an hour.  
    Very soon the rattle of musketry was heard from the woods on the right—Garland was engaged 
    on the right with the enemy and we on the left and center stood in eager anticipation of being 
    attacked also, although no signs of the enemy could be seen over the cleared fields on the left.
    In half an hour we heard firing which continued and a canopy of smoke hung over us in the 
    vicinity of that place from which the sound of the musketry came.  Still we were not attacked 
    and I believe Hill began to think that the enemy threw their whole force on the right flank.  He 
    became restless and uneasy.  Then one of Garland’s aides came galloping up and asked for 
    reinforcements, that we were falling back and the enemy were pressing them in heavy force.
    We passed through lots of wounded limping down the mountain, trickling blood at every step, 
    then again in stretchers containing some more desperately wounded and I saw the pale face 
    of the gallant Garland who was being carried down desperately wounded in the breast.  He 
    died before he reached a surgeon.  He was killed on the first charge of the enemy.
    We soon came up with his brigade just getting in position behind a fence that surrounded a 
    small mountain farm.  We took a position on their left to await the enemy.  Soon we saw 
    them coming up on our front and our right opened upon them.  Bullets whizzed from the front 
    and soon came heavy volley on our right flank.  The enemy had attacked us in front and on the 
    right at the same time.  Garland’s brigade swung around to the rear through the woods in order 
    to force the flank fire while we kept up a continuous one in the front and threw the enemy back 
    beyond range.  The enemy still pressed our right flank and Garland’s brigade after desperate 
    fighting against heavy odds fell back slowly through the woods and exposed our right.
    An order was given for us to move to the left as the enemy was trying to gain our left as well 
    as our right.  We moved under heavy fire, men falling at every step.  The fighting ceased.  Our 
    regiments were again formed into line of battle facing up the mountain and before the enemy 
    were prepared for us, we attacked and drove them back but the laurel was so thick and our 
    force so small that our commanders were afraid to let us penetrate their lines too far.
    Soon we were reinforced by Ripley’s brigade who were put on our left and made a left wheel 
    of the whole line up the sides of the mountain.  We drove the enemy step by step up to the 
    top of the ridge and with a yell we dashed to the open plateau but as we charged from the 
    cover of the woods the booming of the cannon came and the whole end in front of us was 
    torn up by grape and canister.  Our exhausted column fell back in some disorder and we 
    retreated from the mountain un-pursued, to re-form.  The sun was now but an hour high.
    We were again preparing to make another attack when Jones’ division of Longstreet’s corps 
    arrived and gladly did we hear the order to retire.  Jones’ division fought the enemy until 
    about 5:00 when finding them strongly posted on top of the ridge in heavy force, they retired 
    to a position with us near Boonesborough, where we lay on our arms until nearly dawn when 
    an order was given to give the Gap up and fall back to the Potomac River.
    We had a quarter of our division killed, wounded and missing among the woods up on that 
    mountain.  At 4:00 on Monday morning, we took up our line of march.  We had hardly gone 
    three or four miles before the news reached us that the enemy were pursuing.  Our wagons 
    were endangered.
    The columns formed a line of battle on the first line of hills that ran diagonally to the road 
    and our wagons moved on to the front.  This caused the enemy to halt and form in line of 
    battle array and while they were disposing of their forces to the best advantage for attack, 
    we quickly moved off to the flank to the next succession of hills and thus continued our 
    retreat until we arrived on the south side of a creek in the vicinity of Sharpsburg, three miles 
    from the river.
    Here we formed a junction with Longstreet’s corps (who also had been fighting all day long 
    on Sunday on another mountain further south), formed a line of battle and determined to 
    make a stand.  But the enemy was wary and though making a demonstration, did not dare 
    to cross the creek which remained the dividing line between us until Wednesday morning.  
    We threw out skirmishers to the creek bank, placed our artillery in position and though 
    desultory fighting between pickets was continuous and not an hour passed but the booming 
    of a cannon and the whiz of shells grated on the ear, we slept and stood in line of battle 
    through the long hours of Monday night, Tuesday and Tuesday night.
    On Tuesday, one division of Jackson’s corps joined us.  They had, while we were fighting 
    on South Mountain, been busily fighting at Harper’s ferry and succeeded on Monday 
    evening of capturing the whole garrison of 13,000 Yankees, 15,000 stands of arms, and 
    about 90 pieces of artillery together with a lot of ammunition, clothing, shoes, horses 
    and wagons.
    Our line of battle was now formed anew.  Jackson’s troops were put on the right, D.H. 
    Hill’s in the center and Longstreet’s on the left, facing the creek with their backs towards 
    the Potomac.
    All day long Tuesday we could see heavy columns of Yankees marching in front of our 
    lines and I felt that the crisis was near.  At day light on Wednesday we were wakened by 
    heavy artillery and musket fire on our left and each man was ordered to his place.  Soon 
    we saw the wounded come limping towards us and they said the enemy had attacked our 
    left flank in heavy force and our men fell back.
    Our artillery was retreating and while we were straining our eyes in that direction, of the 
    retreating mass of them that were just emerging in view away over the open hills on our 
    left, a galloping courier arrived and directed General Hill to change his front to his left.  
    Quickly we faced to the left, marched through a growing field of corn and then filed to the 
    left in a long land that ran parallel to our left flank.  We were all in position in the lane—
    Ripley on the extreme left, Garland’s next, Rhodes’ next, and Anderson’s on the right, 
    Longstreet’s lines retreated to our rear.
    In a few moments I could see the advancing line of Yankees.  Three heavy columns were 
    approaching us, extending to the right and left as far as we can see.  Each column was 
    about 100 yards behind the other and the nearest scarce 400 yards distant.  To oppose 
    was Hill’s weak little division, scarce one quarter as large and my very heart sank within 
    me as I heard General Anderson say to one of his aids to hurry to the rear and tell General 
    Hill for God’s sake send reinforcements as it was hopeless to contend against the 
    approaching columns.
    It was now about 8:00.  The battle had also begun on the right of our first position and 
    Jackson was hotly engaged.  Sharpshooters were sent about 50 yards to the front of us 
    and our line ordered to lay down in the land and hold our fire until the enemy was close to 
    us.  I stood near Col. Tew on the crest of a hill in front of our position and gazed with 
    emotion over the fast approaching lines.  Our little corps seemed doomed to destruction 
    but not an eye flinched nor a nerve quivered and I then felt sure we would do honor to our 
    noble old state though we would not life to see it again.
    On moved the columns until I could distinguish the stars on their banners, see the mounted 
    officers, and hear their words of command.  Just then a Yankee horseman waved a hat at 
    us and Colonel Tew returned the compliment.  It was the last I saw of the colonel.  Our 
    skirmishers began to fire on the advancing line and we returned to ours.  Slowly they 
    approached up the hill and slowly our skirmishers retired before them, firing as they came.  
    When they were fifty yards off our whole line poured a deadly volley into their ranks and they 
    dropped and back their lines went beyond the crest of the hill.  Our men re-loaded and 
    waited for them to approach again, while the first column of the enemy met the second, 
    rallied and moved forward again.  They met with the same reception and fell back again 
    and wee met by the third line.  All three moved forward but were all forced back.
    They then approached the top of the hill cautiously and laying down we poured into them a 
    shower of leaden hail for four long, mortal hours.  The whole air resounded with the din of 
    arms.  Our men were protected by about six or eight inches of the wear of the road but that 
    is great protection but not complete.  Many were shot as they took aim at the enemy and 
    the groans of the wounded could be heard amidst the guns.
    Col. Tew was killed about 11:00, a minie ball penetrating his brain.  We heard reinforcements 
    coming up behind us but the fire was so hot they were unable to come to our rescue and we 
    were forced to fall back.  Our number was reduced by deaths and wounds and our fire 
    slackened. The enemy had success in planting a battery that raked the road and sent us 
    men to eternity at every discharge.
    Our left gave way and the enemy crested the lane in our rear.  At last the order was given to 
    fall back and the very few that remained un-injured fell back sullenly.  The enemy, however, 
    had been so badly punished that they were not able to follow us immediately.  We rallied 
    behind a stone fence and awaited their approach, the whole division hardly making a 
    respectable regiment.  Reinforcements arrived and the enemy approached but fell back in 
    disorder before a fire from behind the wall they fairly melted in their ranks.
    Their retreat was followed up by the fresh troops of A.P. Hill, who had just arrived and when 
    night set in the enemy was whipped three miles from the battlefield on the left while the 
    receding fire that blazed horribly on the right indicated that on the right the enemy was 
    retreating before the forces of Jackson. The day was ours but little won.  Six to eight thousand 
    of our brave boys lay around dead or wounded in the days fray.  The Yankees left fully four 
    thousand dead on the field.  Their wounded must have been immense. Our regiment brought 
    only one hundred out of the fight, just one third it carried in while other regiments suffered 
    The next morning the Yankees sent in a flag asking permission to bury their dead and all 
    day that was devoted to that purpose and we took care of the wounded who are now in 
    hospitals at Sharpsburg, Maryland, Harper’s Ferry and Charlestown, Winchester and 
    throughout the country on the Virginia side of the Potomac.  Each army was so disorganized 
    that neither was able to make another offensive move.  On Friday our army crossed the river 
    into Virginia and camped in the woods near Shepardstown.  The enemy took the movement 
    as a retreat and on Saturday morning undertook to cross at the same ford but they were met 
    by our forces and were driven back with a fearful slaughter.  Our loss was slight.  In the last 
    ten days fully 50,000 men (on both sides) have been hors de combat, killed, wounded or 
    prisoner.  This is a small estimate.
     Our army has again crossed into Maryland and occupies the same place they did before the 
    battle while Stuart, with his cavalry and artillery, is at Hagerstown near the Pennsylvania line.  
    I do not know what will happen next.
    Now as I have given you an account of the battle I will give an account of myself.  I do not 
    know all that are killed and wounded in the regiment nor even in my own company.  I know 
    Col. Tew was killed and Captain Howard taken prisoner.  Captain Hurt of Company I was 
    wounded and taken prisoner.  Lt. Applewhite of Company D was wounded in the arm and 
    I heard there are only three officers with the regiment.  I was slightly wounded in the head 
    and on the right foot about 1:00 by a bursting shell.  I had no bones broken.  I was able to 
    get off the field myself and did so without being hit again; and many others tried it but I 
    may the only one that I know of who attempted to leave the field wounded and was not 
    shot again.
    I went to the rear and had my wounds dressed, hired a horse and knowing the vicinity of 
    the battle field would be crowded with wounded came to this place.  There are about four 
    hundred wounded in the hospitals here and they are treated as well as if they were at 
    home.  I am fortunate to have been able to secure quarters with a rich Presbyterian 
    family where every lady about the house does everything they can for me.  There are 
    three other officers here with me.
    I would come hone and see you but my wounds are not respectable enough to ask for a 
    furlough.  For three or four days before the battles, we suffered much.  We had to lay out 
    in the line of battle without blankets and take the sun, rain and dew and I never got a 
    mouthful to eat but green corn from Saturday night until Wednesday night.
    There are not 25 men left in the 12th Regiment.  All the rest are killed, wounded or 
    prisoners.  They got cut up on South Mountain.

    The 14th N.C. Regiment suffered severely in the battles of Middleton and Sharpsburg.  We 
    have no official report of its losses but we gather a few facts from a privately written letter by 
    a member of the Oak City Guards of this county.  It is stated that the regiment went into the 
    fight at Sharpsburg with 375 men.  The letter says it “fought all day and while other regiments 
    and men were running the 14th stood like a stone wall and repulsed three heavy columns of 
    the enemy and would have driven back the fourth but [their] ammunition ran out.”  They were 
    “exhausted and alone and unsupported” so were obliged to retreat.  “The next day I carried 
    rations to the regiment and found 27 men and officers.  Noble fellows they were, glad to see 
    me.  The next day we had collected 58 men of the immortal 14th who had come out unhurt.”  
    The letter states that Col. Bennett, Col Parker and Lt. Col. Johnson were wounded besides 
    others already reported.  Captain Freeman is missing, Lt. Bevers is missing, and Lt. Mitchell
    unhurt.  Company E (Oak City Guards, we judge), went into the fight with 85 and but two 
    came out unhurt.  Many of the missing he does not undertake to account for.  He gives the 
    following names:
    Killed:  Joseph Beddingfield, S.D. Ferrell
    Wounded:  Sgt. Jas. Hicks, Ptes. J.M. Beck, B. Grady, H. Lewis, John Martin, Joseph 
    Martin, Pte. Overby, Rufus Pool, W. Wadford, Rufus Whitaker, W.T. Young.  Sgt. S. 
    Lemoy was acting assistant commissary and was not in the fight.  Joseph and Shepherd 
    Rogers were not in the fight, being detailed for other duty.
    The 7th Regiment at Harper’s Ferry and Sharpsburg:
    At the request of a friend we give space here for a letter written to his sister by a young man 
    favorably known here for the information of his many friends who are anxious to hear from him.
    Near Martinsburg, Va., 22nd September, 1862
    Dear Sister:
    By the interposition of a kind Providence, I am still spared.  Since I have been in the army 
    I have enjoyed as good health as I ever did before but have experienced greater hardships 
    than I expected.
    I was twelve days catching up with the army after I left home, ten of which I had to go on 
    foot.  During my travels I suffered fro something to eat, going sometimes two days without a 
    mouthful.  It was not to be had for love nor money, and being so many stragglers belonging 
    to the army who had eaten everything in the country.  I paid $1 for a gallon of meal and had 
    to walk three miles from the road to get it.
    I caught up with the army on Friday at Leasburg, Virginia since which time I have been 
    continually on the march.  I went with the army through several cities and towns in Maryland.  
    We were saluted by the ladies with Confederate flags from the windows.
    Since I have left home I have walked some 400 to 500 miles, waded the Potomac River four 
    times, besides other small steams sometimes in the night—slept in my wet clothes, been 
    through three battles without a scratch and endured other hardships.
    The Yankees were well fortified at Harper’s Ferry but our forces surrounded them and on 
    Sunday morning our regiment (7th) drove in their pickets and during the night we went upon 
    the same mountain the Yankees were, within about 400 yards.  Their entrenchments drew 
    up in a line of battle, the old 7th in front, and went to sleep.
    Our batteries being placed in the proper position on Sunday night, the enemy raised the white 
    flag when we marched in and he surrendered 13,000 in number to us.  We also captured a 
    large quantity of stores, 46 pieces of artillery and a large quantity of tents—that was the only 
    night I have slept in a tent since I left home.
    On Wednesday we marched 20 miles back into Maryland—arrived there about two hours 
    before nightfall and the other troops that had been there all day resting, marched out and 
    our brigade without resting was marched in to open the ball which we did in splendid order.  
    My regiment went in first and drove a brigade of Yankees before it with great slaughter.  
    About half the men in my company were killed or wounded.  Both men on my right were 
    shot down; but we drove the enemy back and slept on the battlefield two nights and one day.  
    Their batteries were placed on a mountain where they could not be dislodged, consequently, 
    during the night we marched back to the Virginia side of the Potomac.  We had just crossed 
    and stacked arms when the enemy having followed us up, commenced shelling us and we 
    had to leave the river about five miles where we remained until the next morning (Saturday) 
    when our division was marched back to keep the Yankees from crossing the river, but half 
    of them got back to tell the tale.  We formed a line of battle about one mile from the river (the 
    Yankees had several batteries on the other side but none on this) and charged at double 
    quick to the river bank, driving the Yankees before us and while they were crossing we shot 
    them down in the river.
    The banks of the river were mostly straight up, consequently during the time we were 
    charging across the field and while we were on the river bank the enemy batteries on the 
    other side were throwing grape and canister into our ranks at a terrific rate.  The old soldiers 
    said it was the severest shelling they ever heard.  The prisoners taken (about 400) said we 
    were brave boys to charge across where we did.
    My officers say I fought bravely.  When I go on the battlefield I fell like I shall never come off 
    but I am thankful to my God that I am spared.  Our regiment has been int hree battles in a 
    week while others have fought more.  I have seen uncle Jas. L. Joyner since I have been 
    out.  He is well.  I am now on picket duty.
    Your affectionate brother,
    Joseph D. Joyner

    A correspondent of the Western Democrat writes from Martinsburg, Virginia:
    On the night of the 16th at 1:00 am we left for Sharpsburg via Shephardstown and again 
    crossed the Potomac into Maryland.  On the 17th we were drawn up in line of battle, soon 
    after daylight.  We were in General A.P. Hill’s Division, on the right of the center, there 
    listening to the heavy firing on our left until about 10:00 when we were ordered hastily to 
    support our left, under Jackson, sorely pressed by nearly the whole force of the enemy.
    We rushed forward  at a double quick for about two miles and went forth into action with 700 
    men, rank and file, charging through a woods shelled by the enemy and through which grape 
    and canister and rifle balls were pouring thick as hail.  Onward we rushed, the 48th, through 
    the woods, leaving many wounded and dead and, I am sorry to say, some of the living unhurt, 
    behind us.  We charged over a fence about one hundred yards in front of the enemy’s terrible 
    battery of 18 guns belching death and destruction at every discharge.  We rushed forward 
    still to within thirty yards of the enemy’s battery and they evidently began to waver but our 
    lines were broken in consequence of want of drill and discipline in our new recruits, the 
    conscripts, who fought well for raw recruits but understood little of marching in line of battle.
    The regiment was thrown into confusion and driven back with great slaughter, many of our 
    wounded being taken prisoner.  An effort was made by the lieutenant colonel to rally the 
    regiment under cover of a hill in the woods but in vain; a considerable portion of the regiment 
    he afterwards succeeded in rallying behind a stone wall near the woods and was afterwards 
    joined by the colonel with a few others.  Here the 2nd South Carolina and the 13th or 22nd 
    Mississippi Regiments rallied with us.
    We suffered a severe shelling but stood our ground until late in the evening when we were 
    ordered over to our extreme left where we were subjected to one of the most terrific shellings 
    we had ever experienced.  Some were slightly wounded by it.  We remained on the field 
    near our battle ground all nigh without eating anything but a few roasted ears of corn since 
    we left Harper’s Ferry—about 24 hours—and slept on the ground without a covering.
    We continued there on the next day—neither party wishing to begin the fight—and we 
    buried our killed and collected our wounded. 
    Our boys have only one suit of clothes (well worn) and very few bed clothing; having left 
    behind in our retreat and not a blanket for every half dozen men and many of them barefoot.  
    They are half starved, half clothed, hard marched, hard fought, and are still cheerful and 
    make but little complaint.  Something must be done for them in the way of bed clothes in 
    particular and that quickly.

    Headquarters 14th N.C.T. near Winchester, 1st Oct., 1862
    Dear Sir:
    We scarcely ever see the Standard here but suppose that its many readers would be glad 
    to see something from Companies E & K, Oak City Guards and Raleigh Rifles of the 14th 
    N.C.R.  It would be too great a task for me to give you the casualties of the entire regiment.  
    The two companies carried into the fight at Sharpsburg a respectable number.  Company K 
    was commanded by its gallant captain Joseph Jones and Company E by 2nd Lt. Joseph L. 
    Mitchell, the captain and 1st lieutenant having been for a long while on sick furloughs.  
    These two companies of the regiment did not suffer so seriously until they received orders 
    to fall back a short distance when they were exposed the fire of the enemy from different 
    directions.  We are unable to account for some of the men of the companies.  We saw the 
    narrow chance they had of escape and preferred to remain and be captured—others were 
    wounded and unable to retreat.  There was an election in Company E for 3rd lieutenant which 
    resulted in the promotion of T.S. Lemay.  The casualties in the companies so far as is known 
    Ptes. S.D. Ferrell, Jas. Beddingfield, H. Russell, Z.M. Russell and A.T. Saunders were killed.  
    Wounded:  Ptes. A.W. Chancey, wounded slightly in the hand, J.H. Felton slightly in the neck, 
    Robert Wooley slightly, Samuel Overton, slightly in the hand.
    Missing:  2nd Sgt. Jas. H. Hicks, Ptes. J.M. Beck, Clayborn Carter, S.B. Grady, John M. 
    Martin, Isaac Macon, Jas. Mears, W.T. Young, R.H. Whitaker, and William Donohoe reported 
    wounded in Company E
    Company K
    Killed:  H.A. Wait, J.W. Sikes
    Wounded:  D.W. Royster, seriously in hip, W.J. Ramsay, hand, slight, Joseph Powell, head 
    and shoulders slilght, ------- Wilsoner in neck
    Missing:  Capt. Joseph Jones, 2nd lt. Charles W. Beaver, 2nd Lt. L.N. Keith, 3rd Sgt. F.W. 
    Bodaker, 1st Corp. J.C. Scarborough, Ptes. Allen, Sam Beasley, M. Candle, William Champion, 
    John Driver, Eli Hamilton, ------ Livensgood, ------ Parish, L. Russell, ------- Wilkerson, R.D. 
    We are stationed between Martinsburg and Winchester.  The health of the remaining part of the 
    companies is very good and our sick who have been sick in Richmond and other places are 
    coming in daily.

    Casualties of Captain J.C. Dowd’s Company D, 48th Regiment N.C.T.
    Martinsburg, Sept. 23
    Casualties suffered on Wednesday, 17th inst., near Shepherdstown.
    Killed:  J.H. Kepley and Franklin Sullivan
    Wounded:  Sgt. S.D. Stewart, Privates C. Barnhart, Solomon Craven, Burrill Deaton, Isaac 
    Freeman, Simon Sanders, H.W. Stutts, C.T. Taylor, David Taylor, Eli Watts, H. Williams
    Missing:  David Paschal, Thomas Smith and E.F. Wadford.
    The wounds are not very severe on any except Sgt. Stewart, who was wounded in the thigh, 
    the bone supposed to be injured.  Private B. Deaton’s leg was broken above the ankle.  The 
    Yankees contested warmly every inch of ground; and owing to their superiority in numbers, 
    they held their ground for about fourteen hours, when hostilities ceased for the night.  The 
    18th was occupied in burying the dead and on that evening our forces fell back on this side 
    of the river.  Next morning the enemy attempted to cross when our batteries mowed them 
    down like chaff, almost blockading the river with them and drove them back since which time 
    there has been no decided movement that is known.
