for the flag he served. ' ;
From the picket iosts it was but a
short. ride to the headquarters of Gen
eral Keyes. the federal commander on
that: line, and the aid was soon asked
to explaiu himself to the enemy. He
had ridden out from Richmond toward
the hostile lines; for the purpose . of
overtaking General Lohgstreet's divi
sion of Confederates and deliver to its
commander fresh ; orders from his
chief. Either Longstreet or himself
had missed the proper road. Not that
he gave his case away so easily, but his
war outfit, combined with confusion
over the capture, convinced Keyes that
something new was on the cards
across the Hues. Keyes alarmed the
outposts and reserves.
A Flood Dividing the Federal Army
A heavy rain of some days' duration
had flooded . the Chickahominy river.

reserve' amounting in all to about 30.
000. while succor for them was out of
reach. Owing to Lieutenant Washing
ton's misadventure Longstreet did not
get his proper orders for the attack,
and other generals who were to
take their cue from his movements
were left in a fog. So the several col
umns In gray marched boldly forward
and stirred up separate rights. -.
McClellan's left wing had crossed
the Chickahominy to the Itichmond
side. Keyes' corps hold the advance
with rallying points at Fair Oaks and
Seven Pines, about a mile apart and
both about five miles from Richmond.
