Sample, George Dunn, Wm. Bailey From Lane’s Brigade Battlefield, Spottsylvania C.H., May 17, 1864 For thirteen long days and nights we have been fighting, marching, lying in the line of battle, through suffocating dust, oppressive heat, drenching rains. As you will readily imagine, I am completely worn out. Through God’s blessings, I have passed through all this terrible fighting unhurt by bullets. A ball struck my coat collar but did no damage. Since the great battle of Thursday, there has been continuous skirmishing with occasional shelling. On the right and left of our line the enemy’s lines are not near, but just in our front (right centre) there appear to be many hostile troops. We pass our leisure moments sometimes in watching the enemy’s and our skirmishers popping away at each other; while a little further off we see some of them running around apparently playing ball. Crack go our rifles and whiz come their bullets still; but we do not seek cover until they commence shelling, which they are almost sure to do sometime during the day. Evening before last, while the General and I were quietly eating our meal, the General’s cap was lifted off his head as nicely as if by the hand—a Minnie passed through half an inch above the head. Our mail carrier is waiting but, were he not, it would be impossible to tell you the tenth of the doings of our noble brigade alone. It has fought grandly in these battles, which seem never ending. You will see in the Richmond papers accounts of our charge on Thursday afternoon and General Lee’s official dispatch. In that terrible charge Col. Barbour was taken by the enemy and Charlie T. Haigh was killed. He was shot through the head. He behaved with conspicuous gallantry in this and all the fights. Just as we emerged from the woods and dashed upon the guns, I saw him just by me with his arms raised, shouting “Charge, boys! Charge! The battery is ours.” All the while the grape, canister, shell, shrapnel and round shot were crashing through the trees, ploughing up the ground, cutting down our comrades—oh! It was terrible, terrible, yet exciting. I trust the foiling of the enemy at Richmond and the defeat of Seigel may induce Grant to withdraw. The Yankee reports of Lee retreating from the Wilderness are absurd. Grant was terribly beaten there with immense slaughter; and retreated from our front, when we moved upon his flank, and rear to this point. E.J.H., Jr. For the Observer Messrs. Editors: To relive our friends at home of anxiety about those who have survived, and to announce the fate of many who have fallen, I enclose you a list of the casualties in the 24th N.C.T., with a short and hasty sketch of the part taken by Ransom’s N.C. Brigade in the recent fights at Drewry’s Bluff. Since the capture of Plymouth, where our Brigade so greatly distinguished itself, we have been very active and have endured the hardships and sufferings incident to marches, bivouacs and battles. After the great victory just alluded to, we “put out” for Newbern, calling at Washington as we passed. The sight of the smoked and tattered banners, waving defiantly before that unfortunate town, greatly terrified its vile inmates, who soon “skedaddled” for Newbern. A few days hard marching found us in front of the latter place. The next morning after our arrival General Hoke, who commanded the expedition, received orders to retire and march to the relief of Richmond and Petersburg. To conceal this movement he sent a stern demand for the immediate and unconditional surrender of the place, that if it was refused he should be compelled to storm the town no prisoners would be taken. This was respectfully declined and in three days were we crowded into cars at Kinston en route for Petersburg, where we arrived the 10th of May. The 11th we marched towards Drewry’s Bluff and on the morning of the 12th heavy skirmishing commenced. Two companies of the 24th were engaged (Companies C and I, commanded respectively by Captains Guiley and Boykin.) In this engagement Lt. E.J. Stallings, Company C, was killed while gallantly cheering on his men. About 4:00 pm our troops retired to the outer line of entrenchments. Skirmishing all day on the 13th. Company K, Captain Baker commanding, engaged, losing nine killed and wounded. The skirmishers were in advance of lines of works about half a mile. Near mid-day, demonstrations of an attack on our right were observed, and Ransom’s Brigade was moved to that point and place in the trenches. Our regiment was on the right, holding a portion of the works which faced at right angles from the rest and on the extreme right flank of our lines. We were barely in position before we were furiously attacked in the rear, the Yankees having flanked us. This was a time that tried men’s souls. The 35th, 56th, and 49th immediately leaped the works, faced about and gave the Yankees a terrible fire as they came, charging with a cheer. Our regiment maintained its position and received the front attack, the whole time subjected to a front flank and reverse fire. Both the front and rear attacks of the enemy were repulsed and a hasty retreat ordered. Men never behaved better under such trying circumstances. The brave Captain Durham, A.Q.M., 49th N.C.T. Acting Aid to General Ransom, and Lt. Johnson, A.D.C. were severely wounded in the affair. This maneuver of the enemy forced the evacuation of the outer line of works, and dark on the night of the 13th found our troops occupying the second line of works. Beauregard arrived late in the evening. Hoke up to this time had been in command. The next morning, the 14th, a strong line of skirmishers was sent forward and fighting commenced in earnest. The skirmishers suffered much. Capt. Audrey, a daring and accomplished officer and gentleman, was killed. His brave company lost many of their best men. About 3:00 our sharpshooters retired into the trenches as the enemy advanced in line of battle. Near 2:00 General Ransom received a painful wound in the arm from a Minnie ball and Col. William J. Clarke, 24th, took command of the brigade as senior colonel. Musketry and artillery firing now became hot and it was thought the enemy would storm the works, but they seemed content to sharpshoot them. Nothing of very great importance on the 15th. A shell exploded among Company E, 24th, Capt Lane, killing and wounding nine. Late in the evening, our gallant colonel was struck on the shoulder by a piece of shell which inflicted a serious wound. The command of the brigade then devolved on Col. Rutledge, 25th, the next ranking officer. During the night of the 15th, 60 rounds of cartridges were issued and the morning of the 16th found us moving to the left to attack the enemy. General R. Ransom opened the fight at daylight with splendid success, driving the enemy and capturing many prisoners. About 9:00 the 24th and 49th were ordered forward through a thickly wooded swamp on the outer skirts of which the enemy were strongly posted in earthworks. When within fifty yards of these trenches a terrible volley of musketry was poured into us, which beggars all description. It was more terrible than Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, or Plymouth. Nothing daunted, our brave boys dashed on and the works were carried. Just as we reached the works, Col. McAfee, 49th, his clear voice ringing above the roar of the war, fell wounded in the breast. Here fell Lt. Sanders, Company F and Lt. Whitaker of Company D, 24th. Their loss is much regretted by all. A brigade of Yankees was seen moving to our right. They gained the works on our right, completely flanking us. It strikes me that somebody was to blame for this. No support was near and we were compelled to fall back. Retiring about 600 yards, a halt was ordered by Lt. Col. Harriss, the ranking officer, and a messenger sent for reinforcements. Not waiting for more troops, an advance was ordered as we desired to hold all the ground that was possible with so small a force. Captain Bailey, a daring officer of the 24th, covered our front, his brave and efficient company deployed as skirmishers. They re-advanced with a step which would have done credit to Napoleon’s Old Guard, and soon hotly engaged. Being worsted at nearly all points, the Yankees commenced retreating, and we had the satisfaction in a short time of marching into the works without loss of a man. The enemy whipped, the battle over, the boys began looking around for the spoils, which consisted of quantities of sugar, coffee, etc., scattered around. The Yankees fell back to the cover of the boats, where we have them hemmed in as of 2:00 on May 19 on the banks of the James at Bermuda Hundreds. Every man is busy digging, and strong entrenchments are being rapidly built. Brisk picket firing occasionally occurs, and now and then a shell goes whizzing over, which the boys say is looking for a quartermaster, as it goes well to the rear. While I write, artillery firing is going on and once in a while a “camp kettle” drops over from a gunboat taking care to burst so as to be of no service to a Rebel.

The enemy had made four desperate charges upon the works held by Clingman’s Brigade and were each time easily repulsed with immense slaughter and little or no loss to us. Unfortunately for us, Wofford’s Brigade on our left gave way and enabled the enemy to press heavily upon the left regiment of our brigade, who were fired on from front, flank and rear, and were compelled to retire, After this, the 51st Regiment in turn from the same cause, had to retire also, after having held its position as long as prudent to do so. The position held by the 51st Regiment was in a few minutes re-occupied by them and feel confident that the enemy had no time to remove our wounded to the rear, and most of those reported missing are believed to be unhurt.

Rogers, painfully wounded in arm; Alpheus Kennedy, wounded, Janus Cross, slightly wounded in Arm Conservative North Carolina Standard Raleigh June 22, 1864 Coal Harbor, June 10 Mr. Editor: As I think you would like to hear from us, I write you a few lines. We are in line of battle and have been so for the last eight days. We have been fighting the enemy every day, more or less. Grant attacked our lines from one end to the other three times with great fury but was driven back on all points with great slaughter. Since that time he has made feeble night attacks that don’t amount to much but has suffered greatly. We have fought behind breastworks and are well fortified. The enemy is also very well fortified on our front and the two lines in some places are not more than one hundred yards between. The sharpshooters, therefore, on both sides are very dangerous for as soon as a man pokes his head up on either side he is killed or badly wounded. General Lane, our commander, was badly wounded in a charge made on the evening of the 2nd inst. When Lane’s Brigade with the balance of Wilcox’s Division took Turkey Hill where we are well fortified. This is the 36th day we have been in this campaign, but only four of those days have we been under fire. Such fighting as has been done in this campaign is nowhere paralleled in the records of history. Our brigade has done desperate fighting. The General and his aide Lt. Lane are both badly wounded. Lt. Col. Davidson commanding the 7th has been captured and the regiment is now under the command of Captain Harris. Lt. Col. McGill is commanding the 18th, Speer still commands the 28th and Lt. Col. Cowan the 33rd, Col. C. M. Avery being seriously wounded at the battle of the Wilderness, Col. John D. Berry commands the brigade. The 37th Regiment is commanded by Major Bost, Lt. Col. Barber having been captured in the battle at Spottsylvania. Many of the line officers have been killed or wounded but I can speak only of the 28th to which I belong. Our loss in killed, wounded, and missing is 250. I have been in the army since the war began and our men have more to do and more to undergo now than ever before, in digging breastworks night and day and in fighting and marching. But we are in fine spirits and confident of success and the ultimate defeat of Grant. We all think of this as the final campaign. We are getting plenty of rations of bacon, corn, meal, flour, Irish potatoes, onions, rice, sugar, and coffee and the men are in good health. The 28th has never been better handled or done better fighting then at present. Col. W.H.A. Speer has had no help except Adj. Folger who is an excellent officer. In the fight at Spottsylvania, the 28th took more prisoners than it had in men. Col. Speer has missed no duty and has behaved with great credit to himself and his regiment.

Cavalry Brigade, June 4, 1864 Since the enemy crossed the Pamunkey, our troopers have been constantly in the saddle, playing well their part in the stirring scenes of the past ten days. This brigade, composed of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th N.C. (illegible word) regiments, after the untimely fall of its brave and noble commander, Col. Andrews of the 2nd N.C., was commanded by Col. Andrews of the 2nd N.C. till the command was joined by the 3rd, which subsequently reached us from North Carolina. Col. Baker of that regiment, being the ranking officer, took temporary command until General Young of Georgia, was assigned to us. The brigade was placed in the division of General W.H.F. Lee, whose past gallant conduct has won for him our most implicit confidence. The Fight of the River Road On Thursday evening, May 26, our brigade occupying the right of our moving lines, near Hanover C.H., the enemy was found to be crossing the Pamunkey at Hanover town on his sidelong movements towards Richmond. Our brigade, under Col. Baker, was moved out down the river road to feel and ascertain the force advancing. The 3rd N.C. was thrown forward and skirmished hotly with their advance, retiring slowly upon the other part of the command, lying a few miles back, while a portion of the Maryland Line and a squadron of the 5th N.C. moved out upon our right flank; and it was ascertained that a heavy body of the enemy’s cavalry was moving on our flank. The whole command was then slowly retired for some distance, when the advance of the enemy had the audacity—mistaking our withdrawal for a rout—to charge our rear, but were handsomely met by a detachment of the 1st and 3rd Regiments, under Major Cowies, killing and capturing a part of their number and sending the remainder in confusion through the woods and fields. The command was withdrawn behind the line of the flanking party, when we were reinforced by Wickham’s brigade and returned, awaiting the approach of the enemy on that road; but it was ascertained that he had hastily turned his course and had retired from our left. The command was then moved around so as to hang in the enemy’s front as he advanced. The Affair at Kinnan’s Wharf In the meantime, General Fitz Lee, with a detachment of picked men from our brigade and the other brigades of his division, moved upon a body of the enemy strongly posted at Kennon’s Wharf, on the James, in Charles City County and attempted, by a coup de main, to carry the position; but, finding it too strongly fortified and defended, he retired without accomplishing his purpose. Our brigade lost severely in the daring attempt. The Fight at Buckeye On the 28th, General Hampton, with W.H.F. Lee’s division and Butler’s brigade, made a reconnaissance down in the vicinity of Old Church. Butler’s brigade met the enemy’s advance—a strong body of cavalry—on Crump’s run, near Old Church, and drove them steadily before him. Meantime, General W.H.F. Lee, with our brigade, swung round, by means of by-ways, on the enemy’s right flank, and opened a heavy artillery fire upon them, at the same time throwing out his dismounted skirmishers, who engaged the enemy hotly, driving them back some distance. The fight raged for several hours along the entire line—the enemy’s infantry, who had come up to the support of their cavalry, taking part—our men firmly holding their ground with their carbines. The incessant cracks of our carbines, intermingled with the peals of the enemy’s musketry at close range, and the constant heavy booming of artillery, might well dignify the affair with the term of a battle. In one instance, the 20th Georgia battalion, comparatively new troops, impetuously charged a heavy body of infantry strongly posted on a hill. They clambered up the hill in the face of a most deadly fire, thinning half their ranks and dashed almost upon the points of the enemy’s bayonets, but were compelled by the force of sheer numbers, to retire their thinning and bleeding ranks. The daring act cost them the loss of all their field and many of their line officers. The North Carolinians drove their flank in, and held them in check, also engaging their infantry supports that moved up to that part of the line and retired in good order as the other parts of the line moved off, the enemy showing no disposition to follow. The Fight at Hanover Court House The enemy had moved a strong force of cavalry and infantry to make some demonstration on our left, in the vicinity of Hanover Court House, which subsequently turned out to be the base for a grand raid around our left. General Hampton, on the evening of the 31st, moved around and appeared in the enemy’s front and proceeded to attack him at once; our left resting on the court house and right beyond the Central Railroad. Here our brigade was in advance. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th Regiments were dismounted and double quicked in with as much élan as old veteran infantry. The scene was grand. The hot rays of the last day of May seemed preparing a welcome for the first summer month, and was fast declining, as our boys jaded and were rushed over a hill and saw the long black lines of the enemy sweeping over a wide plain, rushing to gain the position that lay before them. At the same time the white clouds of smoke from our cannon gave assurance that we had help from behind; our boys dashed impetuously forward hardly waiting to fire. The key to the position was the railroad station. Major McNeill, of the 5th Regiment, rushed upon it, amid a shower of balls that greeted him and his party from behind the buildings, and took the place, with some prisoners, and held it, using it to the best advantage against the exposed columns of the enemy. While the 1st and 2nd regiments did gallant service on the left, the 3rd, on the right, kept at bay, under a heavy fire, the enemy in their attempt to carry their front. After contending unsuccessfully for the desired position in front, a large body of his infantry moved around and threatened our right flank, and, at the same time, another moved against the left. The center was then drawn back and held its position until dark, when the enemy showed no further disposition to advance. The whole command was then withdrawn, leaving the 1st N.C. in line, mounted, who remained in their saddles all night, and was relieved early next morning by the 2nd N.C. The Ashland Fight The enemy manifested signs of advancing. His long lines of cavalry could be easily seen moving out. Our pickets slowly fell back upon the Ashland Road, after the command that had moved on the same road and roads parallel with the main road. Our cavalry was all withdrawn to that point where the Ashland Road crosses the Telegraph road, near Ashland. While we halted here, about noon— General Young with our brigade bringing up the rear—the enemy commenced pressing us. General Young dismounted the brigade and placed it on the right of the Ashland Road, and put himself at their head, and was just leading them in the charge when he fell severely wounded. Captain Gaines, of his staff, dashed at their head, seconded by the gallant Major Cowles and Major McNeill of the 1st and 5th, who rushed on through the woods and carried the point, driving the enemy, while Major Moore, of the 3rd, swept with his right on up the road, Lomax moved on the left. General Rosser, in the meantime, obliqued around unobserved, got upon the enemy’s rear, and rushed upon him, capturing a large horse and pack mule train, driving them helter skelter back upon the court house, and by sundown, the field at all points was cleared, thus crowning our efforts with a brilliant cavalry victory, and as has subsequently developed, nipped in the bud another destructive raid that was planned upon a grand scale on our communications. The captured pack mules were laden with “flour doings” for the officers and the men had seven days’ rations with them and were laying in supplies as they came by, a contribution upon the citizens on their route. Our loss in this engagement was pretty heavy, while the enemy was severely chastised, leaving his dead and many wounded in our hands, and 100 prisoners, besides a fine lot of horses and mules. The Fight at Hawe’s Shop After this affair, closely watching for any further development on this part of the line, and finding the enemy not at all disposed to try his mettle again with us, General Hampton moved down on A.P. Hill’s left on Friday morning, the 3rd inst. He passed through the enemy’s abandoned works, which were of the most elaborate kind, and one must say that to have displaced the enemy from such works, on such favorable positions, must have called into play the generalship of a Jackson. We should, indeed, be grateful to heaven that his genius still lives. A flank movement through a swamp by A.P. Hill, under the gallant General J.B. Gordon, from which the enemy apprehended no approach, unlocked the whole position and so the works were taken with slight loss, which otherwise would have been attacked with slaughter incalculable. Our command moved through the left of these works, crossing over the Tetotopotamy Creek, bearing around, and struck the enemy’s right flank on the Mechanicsville Road. General W.H.F. Lee immediately dismounted the 2nd and 5th regiments of N.C. Cavalry Brigade, and placed them under Major Roberts of the 2nd, who led us in at once without a charge, driving the enemy steadily and rapidly before us, our artillery opening furiously upon their lines. On the dismounted men pressed. Thought the enemy was constantly reinforced, yet on they were driven before us into their works. Our boys quailed not, a leaden storm met them in the face, but on they dashed with deafening yells, rushed over and carried the first line. The enemy retreated to the second line. A large body of infantry was seen double-quicking around on the left flank. Major Roberts quick eye observed this, and at the same time General Lee sent us orders to retire, which was done slowly. Here Major Roberts received a wound, and was borne off the field. We took a position on a hell, 400 or 500 yards from the works—each man to a tree, and behind logs, in a body of thick woods, on a hillside overlooking a swamp about fifty yards in our front and silently awaited the enemy’s tramp, which was preceded with an occasional volley, to discover our whereabouts. Their tread was heard splashing through the swamp, an officer sprang from the thicket and turned to his men, who were several paces behind, and was just waving them on. Three carbine cracks from our most advanced skirmishers met him with a convulsive leap back; he fell and groaned his last. The column seemed anxious to reach his body, but our carbines secured all who showed themselves about him. The retired about a hundred yards on the opposite side of the hill land the fight raged on for an hour when the retired to their breastworks. We were then withdrawn, having most handsomely accomplished our mission, which was to ascertain the location and strength of the enemy, and which, in the early days of the cavalry, was usually done without fighting, but our favorite general prefers pitching into the enemy whenever and wherever a favorable opportunity may present itself. Our loss in this engagement was remarkably light, considering the fierceness of the fight. We suffered most in officers. The enemy’s loss where our observation extended, was pretty severe. D.B.R. Correspondence from the N.C. Cavalry Brigade, June 10 Gentlemen: I notice in your paper yesterday certain errors and omissions which I think justice to all parties demand should be corrected and which I hope were unintentional on the part of your correspondent. While I most cordially concur in the fitting tribute he pays to our intrepid General Hampton, our energetic and gallant General W.H.F Lee, and our dashing Major McNeill, Cowles and Moore and others, and believe them worthy of the cause they espouse, and of our most implicit confidence, I must say he misplaced and overlooked certain individuals and facts worthy of notice. The Fight on the River Road He says “the 3rd N.C. was thrown forward and skirmished hotly with their (the enemy’s) advance, retiring slowly up the other part of the command, lying a few miles back.” No! After the 3rd N.C. reached their horses, the order-in-column of the withdrawal to gain a better position from front to rear was 5th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st regiments, respectively. When the enemy charged our rear, I am informed that Major Cowles, although present, doing and daring everything which his gallant spirit ever prompts, was not in command of the detachment from the 1st and 3rd regiments. Of the 1st he might have been, but the detachment of the 3rd he most certainly could not have commanded since in the momentary confusion caused by a part of the command mistaking an order, this detachment, consisting of the 1st and 3rd squadrons, Companies A and B, E, and 1 of the 3rd, charged through the 2nd and part of the 1st regiments and reached the enemy in time to take several prisoners, two horses and equipments, etc. These squadrons inflicted the loss sustained by the enemy at that time. It seems to have been a well managed accident that those squadrons, commanded respectively by Captains McClammy and Perkins, gained the front after we turned upon the enemy so quickly, and in such good order, but it was even so. A part of the 1st was then battling side by side with us, and hand to hand with the enemy; and I make the statement not to detract anything from Major Cowles and his heroic command, who with a detachment from Company B, 3rd N.C., covered our rear after we had routed the enemy; but to inform those unacquainted with the facts how this detachment of the 3rd came to be with Major Cowles, and under his command, if you wish. Throughout the day’s fighting, Col. J.A. Baker commanded the brigade, directing and supervising every movement. His gallantry is almost proverbial, at least in his own regiment, and his judgment and skill upon the field is ever crowned with glory. Passing a member of the brigade the evening of the fight, he said: “Col. Baker seems to be very brave”. “Yes”, I replied, “he will carry you as far into the heels of the enemy as any other living man.” “But”, said he, “I’m afraid he will lead us so far that he cannot get us out again.” “You have only to judge his future by his past”, I said, and left him seemingly pleased and relieved. At Buckeye the conduct of the brigade was such that no distinction was or ought to be made. Colonel Baker, with his usual taste, commanded the brigade. Suffice it to say, we checked the enemy’s infantry, artillery and dismounted cavalry, for several hours; and retired from the field in good order. At Hanover C.H., General Young, whose heroism during his short stay with us gained our esteem and admiration, (illegible word) our brigade. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 5th N.C. were dismounted and took position from the court house to the Central Railroad, our right resting on the railroad. This position we held until compelled to fall back—the enemy flanking on our right and left. We took position behind a plank (illegible word), our right behind the house at the railroad depot. Here I saw Major McNeill, who came to our support and met us there. I am confident he will say, that the charge to regain the position at the station after we had fallen back to a ravine in its rear, was participated in by the 1st and part of the 5th squadrons of the 3rd N.C. and other men of the regiment, who had strayed from their commands in the growing darkness. Of Major McNeill’s coolness and valor on this occasion, I can bear ample testimony; but I am proud to say, that when he “rushed upon the railroad station amid a shower of balls which greeted him and his party” that the 3rd was part of that “party” and; though almost completely exhausted from the day’s work, and their ammunition expended, some of them fought with the enemy with brickbats, from house to house, contesting every inch of ground with wonderful success till darkness closed the scene. At Ashland, after General Young was wounded, Col. Baker commanded the brigade with that energy and gallantry which could not have escaped the most casual observer. At Hawe’s Shop the 2nd and 5th, under Col. Andrews and Major McNeill respectively, and leg by Col. Baker, went forward and drove the enemy fro their breastworks but were compelled to retire, the enemy being reinforced with infantry, not, however, before they made the enemy feel the force of their old habit. The 3rd, commanded by Lt. Col. Waddell, on the right, and Major Moore on the left, was held in reserve, and was only called into action when the 2nd and 5th were retiring from the hard fought field. It was then engaged about one hour and retired, leaving a few videttes in our rear. Every movement of the brigade was directed by Col. Baker, under the supervision of our favorite general, W.F.H. Lee. The colonel’s horse was wounded and a ball struck his saddle while riding along the skirmish line. I have confined my statement to General Gordon’s old brigade, now commanded by our trusted and much beloved General Barringer, because I was a participant in each of the engagements mentioned, and because I wished to do justice to those who, whether commanding the brigade or serving in a subordinate capacity, were entirely ignored by D.B.R. in his communication of the 4th inst.

M. McKethan as the reports are generally very imperfect. Your paper is taken all around the country where these men are from. We began the fight just one month ago today— and these are the killed, wounded and missing since that time. We have, I fully believe, killed ten of the Yanks to their one of us since the fight commenced and still the fight goes on. Killed: Capt. W.H. Pope, Calvin Britt, C.J. Floyd, George Grimsley, A.

Camp 66th Regiment Battlefield near Gaines Mill, June 6 Friday morning at daylight, June 3, the enemy opened his fire upon us from his right to his left. We soon ascertained that it was not a mere demonstration upon any particular point of supposed weakness, but the actual carrying out of a well digested, well considered plan of attack. The fire ran down our lines from left to right like the keys of a piano, and the sharp crack of our rifles was added to the roar of artillery as it joined in the wild music of the hour—the carnival of death. The battalion of Lt. Col. Eglison’s Virginia Infantry immediately on our right, gave way and yielded with scarcely more than a show of resistance and their flag was captured, as also a piece of artillery in their rear. Our right flank was thus exposed but fortunately Flanagan’s Florida troops were immediately in reserve and they dashed up in gallant style, retook the battery and, aided by the flank fire of the right wing of the 66th Regiment, captured and slaughtered the whole charging force. They were Virginia Piedmont troops under an Ohio colonel. They came up in better spirit than that which seemed to animate the bosoms of those who were put there to oppose them, and but for the prompt response of the reserve and the deadly fire of this regiment, serious results might have followed. As it was, they fell before us like autumn leaves, and the crest of the hill is now darkened with the Yankee dead. Before the 17th Regiment, the enemy met a similar repulse and there they still lie festering in their wounds. The prisoners captured by the 17th N.C. say that theirs was the only one of 16 regiments that could be forced to the charge, the others incontinently flying or refusing to be led to the slaughter. That Grant had charged them so much to the death music of our Confederate rifles that their prestige was gone and they were demoralized. They were glad they were prisoners. This was our status or situation, everything quiet along the lines, save the congratulations which follow success, when Col. Moore came to my wing and commenced one of those gay, pleasant conferences which characterized our daily intercourse. We were talking and laughing together when he changed his position to give an order or take an observation, his breast just above the parapet, when he reeled heavily and fell, expiring into my arms from the remorseless bullet of a Yankee sharpshooter. He turned his eyes upon me; they spoke, though his lips moved not, and I knew from that look which I can never forget, that death had done his work, and in less than one minute the soul of the brave, generous, chivalrous Moore had sprung from the service of his country to his God. He was my junior—I never knew him till the organization of this regiment—but since August 3, 1863, we have been daily thrown together, and our confidences and social relations have been both pleasant and unreserved. He had a military education and to the energies of a strong and well ordered mind he added the love of and enthusiasm of his profession and there were precious few men in the regiment in whose judgment I would heavily confide. Being his senior, he was daily in the habit of consulting or rather conferring with me upon matters for the good and esprit de corps of our command. I have never been long deceived in the estimates of my associates, and I can say I never knew a braver, more chivalrous man. He was not only brave, he was gay in battle. I never saw but one like him in this regard and that is Adolph Munroe of Bladen County, his sergeant major. In a night assault the next evening, he was shot in the head by a minie ball, lodging in the jaw and inflicting a most painful, if not dangerous wound. You have heard of the assault of Thursday night on the 8th N.C. Regiment, commanded by the brave, amiable and intrepid Lt. Col. Jno. R. Murchison, of Cumberland County. I have never gotten the particulars, only that from a gap or interval on his left, his flank was turned and his regiment, weakened by long and arduous services, could not withstand the shock, and in rallying his broken lines, and the rear or artillery, he too yielded up his brave life to his country and his soul to God. Hastily, Your Friend C.G. Wright Clingman’s Brigade, 51st Regiment Since the 12th May, this gallant N.C. Brigade has shared in seven general engagements, viz.: at Swift Creek, May 12; Drewry’s Bluff, May 15; same place, May 16; Bermuda Hundred, May 29; Cold Harbor, May 21; same place, June 1; Petersburg, June 17. It has fought nobly and suffered heavily. Of the large losses of the Brigade mentioned in General Clingman’s letter published in the Observer some days ago, a full share has fallen to the 51st Regiment, Col. Hector McKethan, composed entirely of companies from this section of the state. Twenty two of its officers have been killed, wounded or captured. Of the enlisted men, 60 have been killed, 225 wounded and 148 captured. The gallant fellows have won a proud record, but at a heavy cost in blood and suffering. A letter from General Clingman gives to Col. McKethan (wounded in the face) and his brave regiment and to Lt. Col. W.S. Devane (also wounded) and a detachment of the 61st, the glory of the victory which saved Petersburg on Friday last. “But for their prompt and energetic action”, General Clingman adds, “Petersburg would have fallen”. Two brigades gave way on our right and but that our brigade stood firm and kept up the fight for four hours, alone and unaided, against what we now know to have been two entire corps of the Yankee army, all wound have been lost. The brigade not only held its own lines, but drove the enemy out of the vacant lines on our right and kept them back until 11:00 at night when they were re-occupied by our other troops. I know of no such fight during this war made by any brigade.” Casualties 5th N.C. Cavalry, May 7 to June 4, 1864 Fayetteville Observer, Monday, July 25, 1864 Camp of the 5th N.C.

The regiment was flanked and surrounded on the morning of eth 12th and could only escape by cutting its way out. The regiments on the left of the 28th were broken by the enemy which caused the regiment to be entirely surrounded. The officers and men of the regiment have never acted more gallantly or done any better fighting than they have done in this campaign. No officer has failed to be at his post in all the great battles of the present campaign. I cannot say too much in regards to the men and officers of this regiment. W.H.A. Speer, Lt.

Wiseman Assistant Surgeon, 42nd N.C.T. North Carolina Standard Raleigh June 8, 1864 North Carolina in the recent battles: Extracts from a letter written from a soldier in General Lane’s Brigade. Yesterday (May 12) was the hardest fighting of all. At 5:00 am, the enemy charged and broke Stuart’s Brigade on the left of our brigade and near the center of our army’s lines. They poured in the breast works and gave our brigade a raking, enfilading fire, enough to cause the bravest and most disciplined to break; but they stood as General Lane commanded them, until the enemy had approached nearer, when the command was given to charge and the works were recaptured. From then until night the battle raged furiously along the whole line and this morning we had the same hues with the Yankee army still in our front. It is about 11:00 and no fighting yet……….General Lane, though in the thickest of the fighting all the while, was not scratched. Capt. E.J. Hale is unhurt, but I regret very much to write that Lt. Lane, A.D.C., had his leg shot off below the knee and part of his right foot shot away. He is cheerful and doing as well as could be expected this morning under the circumstances. Col. C.M. Avery of the 33rd is, I fear, mortally wounded—right thigh and left arm badly broken. Lt. Col. William Lee Davidson of the 7th is missing—supposed to have been killed. Col. Wm. M. Barbour of the 37th is missing—some say killed, some say a prisoner. There is now only one full colonel—John D. Batry of the 18th, left to the brigade. Col. Barbour was captured yesterday evening in a charge that our brigade made in which we captured one battery of five guns, one colonel, over 400 prisoners and four stands of color. Three of the colors were taken by the 37th Regiment and one by Lt. Octavius A. Wiggins. Lt. Wiggins also took one of the finest swords I ever saw…… Capt. Wm. T. Nicholson had charge of the sharp shooters of the brigade and located the position of the enemy first spoken of, that we charged. It was a hazardous undertaking. General Lee called upon General Wilcox for a man who would do the work and Capt. Nicholson was assigned. When he started, General Lee said to him “Captain, I am sending you on a dangerous assignment and I leave it to your discretion whether to go or not but the fate of my army depends upon it and for God’s sake do not lose any time.’ “I will go, General” said the captain. So, mounting the works he went up sufficiently near the enemy to ascertain their exact position, returned and reported in person to the commanding general. Our brigade was then ordered to flank them, which was most handsomely done, making the enemy abandon an advantageous position, which he had secured on another part of the field. The objective was accomplished and we returned to our original position which we still hold……….Captain Nicholson, mentioned above, is a son of Thomas W. Nicholson of Fairfax Co. He graduated with distinction at the University of N. Carolina in 1860 and during his senior year was one of the editors of the university magazine. He is a most gallant officer and is said to be the best judge advocate in the Army of Northern Virginia. He has filled the position of judge advocate in General Wilcox’s Division for nearly a year………..I sincerely regret to learn that since the above letter was written he has been wounded in the shoulder by a piece of a shell……………… Lt. Octavius A. Wiggins is also from Halifax County, and is a son of Mason L. Wiggins, Esq., well and favorably known as senator from that county in the state legislature. I learn that in order to get possession of the flag mentioned above, he was compelled to make a foot race with a Yankee ensign. Young Wiggins was too fast for him and secured the prize……..Young Wiggins, since the above occurrence, has been wounded in the thigh.
