Few among your readers, probably, have
any idea of the situation of the late buttle
field at Stoue Bridge, or of the relative posi
tions occupied by the two contending ar
mies. I have, therefore, prepared a rude
diagram, which, though imperfect in its
lines, angles and proportions, will with the
aid of a picturesque imagination, enable
them to comprehend something of the gener
al military movements which opened and
closed that gloriously eventful Sunday.
To go more into faithful details than I
have already done is impossible, and at the
risk of repetition. I only give you such
leading facts as may be necessary to place
the scene and subject clearly before the
This diagram may be seen in the Courier
The eye will take in a glance the relative
position of the two forces. The enemy oc
cupied the heights and woods East of Bull
Run from Centreville to Union Mills, to the
number of nearly forty thousand. The Con
federates were stationed from the Stone
Bridge, on the West side of Bull Run, to
the front of the right wing of the Federal
ists, the dense woods along its borders effec
tually screening both parties from observa
tion. General Evans was in connmul of
our extreme left, resting upon Stone Bridge,
supported by the brigades of Bartow, Bee,
Cocke, .Jackson, Bonham, Jones, Lougstrcet
and Ewell —the latter being on the extreme
right, and the others stretched along the
Run. The enemy were under the command
of Gen. McDowell, who had divided his for
ces into three columns, two of which were
intended to amuse aud occupy us in making
feints along the Run at the various fords,
where our batteries were planted iu greatest
profusion, while the substantial work, which
consist, din turning our left wing, w t us to be
done by the third.
You will therefore understand the demon
stration which took place from sunrise until
half-past eleven or twelve o’clock upon our
centre at Mitchell’s Ford. The Yankee
General industriously displayed large masses
of his troops along the edge ol the woods
on the top of the hill, and for six hours bom
barded every bush, thicket aad group of
individuals within range of his rifled can
non, without eliciting a response. If is ob
ject, therefore failed. Our silence was more
Mcanewhile the enemy, under command
of Gens. McDowell and Hunter, advanced
from Centreville, in a column 125,000 strong
toward our left wing. Instead of march
ing direct upon Stone Bridge, however,
where we had expected and prepared to meet
them, they diverged from the main road,
and proceeded to cross the Run, two miles
aud a half above, at Sudley’s Ford. (The
point is indicated.) As we were unpre
pared to oppose them at this point, they
were speedily enabled to take possession of
the heights, till the woods, and plant their
forces in battle array. It was plainly evi
dent that the bold, dete; mined movement
was beiug made to get behind us ; aud that,
too, with the best lighting material of the
Northern army —the Zouaves, the Irish Six
ty-Ninth, the Scotch Seventy-Ninth—the
Rhode Islanders with their steel rifle guns,
the Wisconsin marksman, and other crack
regiments, in front. The force of that one
division, with its half dozen flying batteries
of artillery, was not less than fifteen thous
and. To meet them we had what? A mere
handful of choice spirits, comprising Col.
Sloan’s Fourth South Carolina Regiment,
Col. Wheat’s Battallion of Louisiana Tigers,
and two guns ol the Latham Battery.—
These (Jen. Evans threw directly upon the
advancing front, and here they fought as
men never fought before, with the tenacity
of bull dogs and the desperation of men who
had the memory of homes and kindred in
heir hearts. There they stood until almost
ecimated by the hail from right and left,
dolding for a time that immense living mass
h check. But the tide rolled on, and
though subsequently supported by Jackson,
Cocke, Bartow, Bee and other brigades,
step by step was the little army compelled
to fall back. But the fighting continued.—
New positions were taken, now new heights
occupied, aud new batteries opened. Every
inch of ground was fiercely contested. —
Meanwhile the enemy were slowly pushing
forward their flanking movement, their
tracks marked with the mingling life cur
rents of friend and foe, which gushed out
at every foot step.
The day began to look dark and gloomy.
Forebodings trembled in a thousand hearts.
Many of our best officers had been killed or
wounded. Bartow, Bee, Hampton, Fisher,
Jones, Johnson, Gardner, hud been borne
bleeding from the field. The men were
wearied with marching, fasting and lighting,
while reinforcements arrived late. Fifteen
thousand had contended against three times
their number for nearly five hours, and still
the storm of battle was undiiniuished in its
fury. At this critical junction, Gen. E. K.
Smith, with a brigade of twenty five hun
dred troops leaped from the cars and appear
ed upon the field, fresh, vigorous and un
daunted. Never was a blessing more op
portune It was like a gracious bow of prom
ise in the hitherto darkened heavens. How
eyes brightened, and cheeks flushed, and
nerves grew strong, and hearts beat quick
with joy as the gallant phalanx, with a
cheer, swept into view. Johnson, iu the
fullness of his feelings exclaimed: Our
Blucbcr has arrived !” And so it appeared.
The brigade halted a moment for orders.—
Cash and Kershaw meanwhile added their
regiments to Smith’s command. The enemy
was before them. “Forward men of the
South —victory or death !” rang along the
lines, and with a shout that seemed to shake
the earth a dashing charge was made upou
the advancing columns. The onset was furi
ous. A sheet of flame flushed out from a
thousand steady rifles; the artillery poured
forth messengers of destruction that marked
their pathway with long lines of dead and
dying; groans, cheers, aud the short, quick
commands of the officers, mingled with the
din of conflict, and for few moments in the
desperate struggle which ensued it appeared
as if the turuing of a hand would have deci
ded the fortunes of the day. But God was
t Standing as long as they could the fiery
tornado, the es4*y at length began to waver.
Another volley—another advance by our
forces—a defiant cnebr—and our foes were
turned aud iu full retreat. Such was the
crisis of that terrible battle, upon which
hung our prestige and success.
I nfortnnately, Gen. Smith was wounded
soon after he armed upon the field. Had it
not been tor this casual ity, he would have
kept, on iu the direction he had advanced,
and with the aid of other forces, divided the
Federal army and cut the fragment to pieces.
But “ man proposes aud God disposes.”
The flank ol the enemy once forced, the
day was ours. The captured guns were
turned upou the retreating col urn us. Cash
and Kershaw followed in close pursuit.—
Kemper’s Artillery, Hampton’s Legion, and
the Cavalry were added at the Stoue Bridge,
aud from this time forward, until late in the
night continued the frightful and paralyzing
route and details of which have been given
in previous letters. Thousands fled by the
way they came at Sudley’s Ford, anu dis
persed through the country to make their
way to Washington as best they could; but
the main body followed the road loading to
Centreville, in which they were mown down
by scores until within a mile of that place.
As it will interest many of your readers,
I have indicated in the above diagram the
point where the Hampton Legion, supported
by Withers’ Virgiuia Regiment, rushed
through the gardeu adjoining the farm house
of a man named Henry (the son of tbe old
lady who was shot by three of the myriads
of balls which riddled their residence,) au d
charging down the hill a distance of two
hundred yards in the face of a terrible fire,
captured two guns of Ricketts’ or what W:IS
formerly known as Sherman’s battery. Col.
Hampton having been wounded just at the
door-step of the house, the command of the
Legion devolved on Capt. Conner as Acting
Colonel, and Capt. Gary as Lieutenant Col
onel, under whom this portion of the day’s
glory was achieved. It was the latter officer
who first enjoyed the pleasure of straddling
one of the pieces—a very excursable way un
der the circumstances of expressing a superb

upon this branch of the subject, J leave you
to run the shuttle of memory from scene to

I have furnished, to weave a complete and

of heroism, by the living aud dead, aud glo

But amid the pleasing contemplations of
the victory and its results, what solemn asso
ciations cluster in the mind when we remem
ber the loved ones who have been striken
from our homes and social circles. Many a
death's seal has been sot on ashy lip and
marble brow, that only yesterday, as it were,
were instinct with life. Their voices yet
sound in our ears, their last look and word
linger with us, and we oau almost feel the
pressure of the parting grasp, as they went
buoyantly forth in the vigor of health to
meet their country’s foe. To day how all
this is changed ! The calm impress of an
eternal sleep is upon them. Their dust has
become saered. They have laid their lives
upou our altars, and all that remains for our
consolation is a precious memory and an il
In this connection I cannot forbear recall
ing an affecting scene which took place du
ring the last hours of the lamented Gen.
While participating in the thickest of the
fight, a ball penetrated the groin anti passed
upwards in the region of the stomach. He
was at once borne from the field to a neigh
boring hospital, and after a temporary rest
there removed to Manassas, where an apart
ment was provided for him in the hotel.—
Among those who called upon the wounded
General on the day following, was his old
friend, Col. Tupper, of Charleston, who was
on the Staff of Gen. Smith, and himself
slightly hurt. Bee was lying on a mattress,
culm, composed, and evidently not in much
pain. Aware of his approaching end, he
was engaged in dictating to one of his Staff
his last missive to his family, being so ab
sorbed in this task that he appeared not to
observe the slightest movement which trans
pired around him. At intervals he would
drop away into a dreemy kind of repose and
seem to sleep, but by a preconcerted arrange
ment his Aid would touch him slightly in
the centre of his forehead with the point of
his pencil, when iho General would recover
his faculties and proceed. In due time this
labor of love was finished, and he turned his
attention to the company present. Col.
Tupper was among these, and as the hands
of the two men met for the last time, Bee
gently drew him down so as to be more dis
tinctly heard, while Col. Tupper bent upon
his knee and laid his face upon that of the
dying man. The latter then said :•* Colonel,
our acquaintance lias been of a very pleasant
nature. It’s hard to part where friends are
so dear, but I must soon leave you. God
bless and protect you.’’ With others of his
friends he also exchanged brief words of part

The correspondent of the Charleston Cour
ier gives the following description of the feel
ings of a soldier for the first time on a bat
tle field :
No person who was not upon the ground
and an eye witness of the stirring scenes
which there transpired can begin to compre
hend from a description the terrible reali
ties of a battle ; and even those who partici
pated are competent to speak only of their
own personal experience. Where friends
and . toe?, are lalliug by scores, and every
species of missile was flying through the air,
threatening each instant to send one into
eternity, little time is afforded for more ob
servation or reflection than is required to
preserve personal safety. The scene is one
of the most exciting and exhilirating that
enri he conceived. Imagine a regiment pas
sing you at “double quick,” the men cheer
ing with enthusiasm, their teeth set, their
eyes flashing, and the whole in a frenzy of
resolution. You accompany them to the
hold. 1 hey halt. An Aid-de-Caiup passes
to or from the commanding General. The
clear voices of the officers ring along tlie
line in tones of passionate eloquence ; their
words short, thrilling and electric. The
men feel like giants. Ihe word is given to
march, and the body move into action.
For the first time in your life you listen to
the whizzing of iron hail. Grape and canis
ter fly into the ranks, bombs burst over
head, and the fragments fly all around you.
A friend falls ; perhaps a dozen or twenty
of your comrades lie wounded or dying at
your feet; a strange involuntary shrinking
steals oyer you, which it is impossible to re
sist. Y r ou feel inclined neither to advance
nor recede, but are spell bound by the con
tending emotions of the moral and physical
man. Jho cheek blanches, the lip quivers,
and the eye almost hesitates to look upon
tlie scone. Tu this attitude you may, per
haps, be ordered to stand an hour inactive,
havoc meanwhile marking its footsteps with
blood on every side. Finally the order is
given to advance, to fire, or to charge. And
now, what a metamorphosis. With your
lirst shot you become anew man. Personal |
safety is your least concern. Fear has no i
existence in your bosom. Hesitation gives
way before an uncontrollable desire to rush
into the thickest of the fight. The dead
and dying around you, if they receive a
passing thought, only serve to stimulate
you to revenge. Y'ou become cool and de
liberate, and watch the effect of bullets, tlie
showers of bursting shells, the passage of
cannon balls as they rake their murderous 1
channels through your ranks; tlie plunging !
of the wounded horses, the agonies of the ;
dying, and the clash of contending arms
which follows the dashing charge, with a ;
feeling so callous by surrounding circum- |
stances, that your soul seems dead to every
sympathizing and selfish thought.
Such is the spirit which carries the sol
dier through the field of battle. But when
the excitement has passed, when the roar of
musketry has ceased, the noisy voices of the
cannon are stilled, the dusky pall of sulphur
ous smoke has risen from the field, and you
stroll over the theatre of carnage, hearing
the groans of the wounded, discovering here, i
shattered almost beyond recognition, the j
form of some dear friend whom only an
hour before you met in the full flush of
lile and happiness; there another, perfora
ted by a bullet; a third with a limb shot j
away; a fourth with his face disfigured ; a
fifth torn almost to fragments; a sixth a
headless corpse; the ground ploughed up!
and stained with blood; human brains ‘
splashed around ; limbs without bodies, and
bodies without limbs, scattered here and
there, and the same picture duplicated scores
of times, then you begin to realize the hor
rors of war and experience a reaction of na
ture. The heart opens its flood gates, hu
manity asserts herself again, and you begin ,
to feel and act more the man and less the
demon. Friend and foe alike now receive
your kindest ministerings. The enemy who
but a short time before, full of hate, you
were doing all in your power to kill, you
now exert to save. Y'ou supply him with
water to quench his thirst, with food to sus
tain his strength, and with sympathizing
words to soothe his troubled mind. All
that in human or charitable in your nature
now rises to the surface, an i you are ani
mated by that spirit of mercy “which bles
seth him that gives and him that takes.’’—

Camp near Manassas, July 27th, 1861.
To the Editors of the Dispatch : I, togeth
er with several other gentlemen from Mont
gomery, a day or two ago, witnessed one of
the most singular, and at the same time
most affecting incidents which will probably
occur during this vnhoiy and unnatural war,
if it should last for twenry years. We
were straggling over the battle-field, exam
ining the ground upon which we had such
a bloody conflict and won such a glorious
victory, two days before. We came unex
pectedly into the Centreville road, and see
ing a house upon our left with the usual
sign betokening a hospital, one of our party
being a physician, expressed a wish to get
down and examine the wounded. Upon
inquiry we learned that a stable just below
the house contained thirteen wounded Yan
kees; we forthwith proceeded to the stable,
and upon entering found a Washington ar
tilleryman seated by the side of a wounded
soldier evidently ministering to him with
great care and tenderness. 1 introduced
myself to him, and asked if be aided in wor
king the battery which fought with the Ist
Virginia brigade. Ue told me lie did not—
he had fought in a battery lower down, aud
then remarked “that it was very hard to
tight as lie had fought and turn and find his
own brother fighting against him,” at the
same time pointing to the wounded soldier
from whose side lie hud just risen. I asked
if it was possible that was his brother.—
“Yes, sir, he is my brother Henry. The
same mother bore us the same mother nursed
us. We meet the first time for seven years.
L belong to the Washington Artillery, from
New Orleans —he to the Ist Minnessota In
fantry. By the merest chance I learned he
was here wounded, and sought him out to
nurse and attend him.” Thus they met —
one from the far North, the other from the
extreme South —on a bloody field iu Virgin
ia—in a miserable stable,* far away from
their mother, home and friends —both woun
ded the infantryman by a musket ball in the
light shoulder, the artilleryma.u by the

A Nlraiige Story.
The special \\ ashington correspondent of
the Philadelphia Inquirer telegraphs:
“ I apprehend there is too much truth in
the statement that the consternation that
prevaded the ranks of our Army on Sunday
afternoon last was produced by the teamsters.
It is now believed that the teamsters who
produced the excitement, and caused the re
treat, were rebels—not of the condition in
life from which such employees aro usually
selected, but men of means and position in
the South, who under a disguise, had deceived
the Government into employing them. In
fact, it was but a repetition of the St. Nicho
Several of the teamsters were in Washing
ton some time before they left for Centreville;
and it is now remembered that a little child,
residing in the house in which they boarded,
was several times the recipient of rebel
badges and on one occasion of a handkerchief
bearing upon it several rebel emblems and
At the time the presents were hstowed,
nothing was thought of it, the teamsters be
ing in the Government employ, hut now the
facts are remembered.
1 receive my information from good au
thority, and give it not only to show the
origin of the panic, but also to show what risks
the traitors to their country will incur to
further their fiendish projects.”
This is u last resort—there must be some
way to account for the running of the “Grand
Army.” Perhaps they could resist the firing
and the bayonets in front—but the inclina
