B ill kun.from Union Mills ford to the Siooe
Bridge, a distance of eisti () miles, were

Ewell's biigsde occupied a position in the
v;einity of Ui ion Mills ford. It consisted of

leers, wi'ti two brass six pounder guns of
Wilton's battery, and one cjmpsuy of cav

ford, and consis'e 1 of Moore's 1st, Garland's
11th, and Corse's 17tb regiments Virginia vci-u-.teers.
witb two six pounder brass guns of
B -nnam's brigade held tbe approaches to
Mitchell's fnrd. It wss craposfd of Ker

and R. T. I'rgs'on's 28 h rejiments, with

Evans held my left lank and r-oterteJ. the
Stone Bridge crossing with Sloan's 4 b regi
ment South Carolina volunteers, Wheal's
special battalion L-uisiar.a volunteers, four
six poun er guns, and two companies cf Vir
Esrley's trigade, consisting of Kemper s
fl'b (six companies.) Earley's 24 h ret iment
Virginia volunteers, Has'7.b regiment Lou
isiana volunteers, and three rilie pieres of
Walton's battery, Jveut. Squires, at first were
held in position in rear t:f and as a support to
Ewell's brigade, until after the development
of the enemr. in heavy offensive force, in
front of Mi'cheli'a and Blackburn's ford-,
when it was placed in rear of Slid nearly
equi distant between McL'-an's, Blackburn's
an a Mitchell's ford.
Priiding tt.e development ssf the enemy's
purpo e, about ten (10) o'clock A M , I estab
lished my Headquarters at a central point,
McLean's farm-house", near to fliciean a aim
Blsckburn's fords, where two six-pounder, of
Walton's baiury wire in reserve, but subse
quently, during the engagement, 1 took pos: to
tbe left . f iny reserve.
Of tbe topographical features of the coun
try 'bus occupied, it mus suffice to say that
Ball Run is a small stream, running, in this
locality, nearly from west to east, to its con
fluence witb the Orcoquin river, about twelve
miles fnm the Potomac, and dr.:ining a con
siderable scope ol country from its rourees la
Bull Run mountain to a short distance of the
Potomac, at Occoq ian. At this season habit
ually lw and siusgish, it is however rap'illy
and frequently swollen by the summer rams
until unrentable. Tbe banks for the most
part are rocky and sleep, but abounded in long
used fords. Tbe country on eit er side, much
broken ltd thickly wooded, becomes gently
rolling and open as it recedes from tbe Btrcam.
On tbe northern s:de tbe ground is much the
highest, anl eommsntia lbs other bank com
pletely. Roads traverse ana in'ersect the sur
rounding country in almost every direction.
Finally, at Mitchell's ford tbe stream is abiti'
equi-distant between Centerville and Manas
sas, some sw miles apart.
O i tbe morning of the l!b, finding that the
v-nemy was assuming a threatening attitude,
in addition to the regiments whose positions
bsve been already Btated, I ordered up from
Camp Pickens, as a reserve, in res i of Bn
h urn's brigale, the effec'ive men of six com
panies of Kelly's 8 b regiment Louisiana
volunteers, and Kirkland'a lit regimen'
North Carolina volunteers, which, having
arrived tbe Digbt before en route f r Wi.ches
ter, I had baited in view of the ixis irg ne
cessities of tbe STviee. Subsequently, the
latter was placed in position to tbe lei t of
ii H.bam'a brigade.
Appearing in heavy force in frcnt of Bon
Lam's position, tbe enemy about meridian
opened ire witb several 30-pouuder rifled guns,
from a bill over one and a half miles from
Bait Run. At the same time, Kemper, sup
ported I v two cot panies rf liht infantry,
occupied a rid:;e on tbe le:t of tbe Centerville
road, about, six hundred yards In advsree of
tbe 'ord, with two b-pounuer (smooth) guns.
At first the firing of the enemy was at ran
daaa; but by balf-pssf 12 r m , he bad obtain
ed the range of oir posi'ion, and poured into
th brigade a i bower cf shot, but without
injury to us in men, horses, or guns. From
the distance, however, our guns could r ot re
ply with effect, and we did not attempt it,
patiently awaiting a more opportune moment.
Meanwhile a light battery was pu&hed for
ward by tbe enemv, where upon Kemoer tbre v
only six o!:d shot, with tbe effect of driving
back both tbe ba.try and its supporting fore.
This is understood to 'have been Ayre' battery,
and tbe dame must bsve been considerable
to bay oliged such a retrogade movement on
the part of that officer.
The purposes of KetBper's position having
now been fully served, li s pieces and support
were withdrawn across Mi chell's ford to a
point previously designsled, and which e.m
inar.ded tbe direct approaches to the ford.
About ha If -past 11 o'clock, a. at., tbe ene
my was also discovered by tbe picke a of
Longstreet's brigade advancirg in Btrong col
umns of infantry witb artillery at.d cavalry on
At meridian, tbe pickets fell back silenMy
before tb advancing foe across the ford,
which, as well as the entire bou hrn bank of
tbe n: earn for the whole front of Longs reefs
brigade, was covered at the water's edge by
an extended line of skirmishers while two six
pounders of Walton's battery, under Lieuten
ant Garnett, were advantageously placed to
ronmsnn tbe direct sppraacb to the ford, but
with orders to retire to tbe rear as soon as
conmar.ded by the enemy.
The n-rth'rn bank of the s'ream, in front
of Longstreet's pos:tioD, rises with a steep
si ne at leas' Ufty f el above the level of the
wa'cr, leaving a narrow neime in iront or ihe
ford of some twenty yards. This ridge form-
ed for Ihm en admirable natural parapet, he
l.ind wbich tbey could, and did approach under
ot'el'er, in heavy force, within less 'ban one
hundred yards of our skirmish era. Tbe south
ern shore was almost a plain, raised but a few
fie' above the water lor several Lti'dred ards,
then r sing wi'b a very gradual, gentle slope,
and undula'ir.g bsck to Manaeiaa. On the
Immediate bank there wss a fringe of trees,
buf wi'b little if any undergrowth or shelter,
arfeiie. on tbe other chore, there was timber
and much thick brush and covering. The
grou-;d in rear of our skirmishers, and occu
pied by our artillery, was an old field extend
In" along the stream abo.it one mile, and im
mediately bark for about half a mile, to a
border or skir'in; of dense second growth
pines. The whole of this ground was com
manded a' ail points by the ridge cccupied by
the enemy's musketry; as was also the country
to tbe rear for a distance m i-h beyond tbe
rarge of twenty-pound rifled guns, by the
range of bills on which their bat'eries were
planted, and which, it may be further noted,
commanded also all our approacbee frm this
JH isjaai to V e threatened fords.
Before advancing bis infantry, the enemy
msiotain-d a fire of rifle artillery from the
bit'eries jus' mentioned for calf an hour, then
b. poshed forward a column of over three tbou
Mid" Infantry to tbe assault with such a
weight o numbers as to be repelled with difn
w h nmnrativelv small force of not
ruiiy j a . . lth
wblib f,9n LostrMt Vst him, with
shask rrr Va I UUIfU UdtUIIC B( aw
chsracteris ic vigor antl intrep 'ty. Our troops
encaged at this time were the 1st and 17cn,
and four companies of the lltn regiment Vir
ginia volunteers. Their reristance was reso
lute, and maintained with a steauii ess uoritiy
of all piaise. It was successful, ami ihe ene
my was repulsed. In a short time, however,
he returned to the contest with incieased force
and determination, but was again foiled and
driven hack by our skirmishers and Long
street's resene companies, which were brought
up and employed at them oat vigorously assail
ed pjints a. the critical moment.
It was now that Brig. Gen. Lingstreet sent
for reinforcements from Early "s brigade,
wbich I bad nn icipa'ed by direc'ing
the advance of Gen. Early, with two reg
imes, ts of infantry and two pieces of artil
lery. As these came upon the field, the enemy
hail advanced a third time witu heavy numbers
to force Longstreet's position. Hays' regi
ment, Seventh Louisiana volunteers, wlich
was in advance, was placed on the hai.k of
the stream, undi-r snme cover, to the immedi
ate rigut and left of the ford, relieving Coie's
regiment. Seventeenth Virginia volunteers.
This was done under a heavy fire of musketry,
with promising steadiness. The Seventh Vir-
ginia, under Iveut Col. Williams, was then
formed to the right, also under heavy tire, and
pushed forward to the stream, relieving the
riist regiment Virginia vol.iuteeis. Ac tbe
' itime time two ride guns, brought up with
Early's brigade, were moved down in the field
to the rigbt cf ihe road, so as to be co-icealed
j irotn the enemy's arlilieiy by the girth of
I timber on the immediate bank of the stream,
i and there opened fire, directed only by the
I soucd of the enemy's u usketry. Unable to
afect a passage, the enemy kept un a scatter
iug fire lat boot time. Sutne of our troops had
puabed acoss the i-tream, and several small
parties of CorsVa regiment, under command
I of Captain Varye, met and drove the enemy
! witb the hayvnet, but as the roadway from the
! for! was too narrow for a combined movement
iu foice, Gen. Longstreet recalled tbem to the
south bank. Meanwhile tbe remainder of
Earli's infantry and artillery had been called
up; that is, six companies of the 24'.b regiment
Virginia volunteers, under Lieu'enant Colonel
Hairston, and five pitces of smile: y, one rifle
gun, and foursix-pounder brass guns, including
two six-pounder brass guns u' der Lieut. Gar
nett, which bad been previously sent to tbe
rear by Gen. Loiiistreet. This infantry was
at once placed in poai'ion to the left of the
ford, in a space unoccupied by Hats, and
the ar il!"ry was unlimbered in battery to the
right of the road, in a line with tbe two gum
already in action. A scattering fire of mMt-ket-ry
wss still kept up by the enemy for a short
time, but that was so n silenc d.
It was at this stage of tbe afftif that a re
markable artillery duel was commenced, and
maintained on our side with a long-trained
professional opponent sufror in the charac
ter, as well as in tbe a umber of bis weapons,
provided wi h improved munitions and every
artillery appliance, and a, tbe same time oc
cupjing the commanding position Tbe re
suits were marvelous, and fitting prerursois
to the artillery achievements mt the 2lst July.
In the outset fir fire was directed against tbe
enemy's infantry, whose bayonets, gleaming
above tbe tree tops, alone indicated their pres
ence snd force. This drew tbe a'ention of a
battery placed on a high commanding ridge,
and the duel began in earnest. For a time the
aim of the enemy was inaccurate, but this was
quickly corrected, and sbo's fell and shells 1
burat thick and fast in tbe very ml 1st of our
battery, wounding in tbe course of tbe comhat
Capt. Escbeiman, five privates, and tbe Loree
or Lieut. Richardson. From the position of
our pieces, and the nature ot the ground, their
aim could only be directed at the smoke of the
enemy's artillery. How skillful, and with
what execution this was done, can only be re
alized by an ee witness. For a few moments
their guns were silenced, but were soon re
opened. By direction of Gn. Longstreet, bis
ba tery was then advanced by hand out of the
range now ascertained by the enemy, and a
shower of eptn rical-case shell, ar.d round shot
llw over the beads of cur gut nrs ; but on or
our pieces b8d become hort ifu con6a from an
enlarged vent. From the new posttsoa our guns
fired, as oetore, wiih no other nim than tbe
smoke and flash of their adversaries' pieces
renewed and urged the conflict with such sig
nal vicor and cff :ct, that gradually tbe fire cf
the enemy slackened, the intervals be' ween
their discharges grew longer, finally to cease,
and we fired a last gun at a baffled, flying foe,
wbose heavy masse in the dis ance were seen
to break and scatter in wild confusion and utter
lout strewing be ground with catt-away guns,
bais, blankets and knapsacks, as our parting
shell was thrown among them. In their re
treat, one of their pieces was abandoned, ' ut
from the nature of the ground it was rot sent
for that nigh', and under cover of darkness tbe
enemy recovered i'.
The go:. s engage I in this singular conflict,
on our side, were three six pounder rifle pieces
and lour ordinary six pounders, all of Wal
ton's battery, the v'ashlngton artillery, of New
Orleans. Trie officers immediately attached
were Capt. ! - ' . u, Lieuta. Squires, Rict
ardson, Garnet and Whittington. A the same
time our infantry held tbe back of ibe stream
in advance or our guns, and tbe miesiles ar
tbe comnatants fl ar to and fro above tbem, as
coo! and veteran like, for more than an t our
tbey steadily awaited the moinei,t and signal
for ibe advance
While tbe cotflict was at its Light, before
Clack! urn's ford, about four o'clock, p. m ,'be
enemy again displayed ''imselt in force before
B"iibaui's poHitior,. At this, Col. Kershaw,
w ith fotr companies of bis rgiment, 2 1 South
Carolina, and one piet-e of K-mpei's artillery,
were thrown across Mitchell's ford to the
ridge which Kemper bad orcupied that rorrn
icg. Two boikI shot and three spherical esse,
thrown among them witb a pr-cision inaugu
ra'ed by that ar illerist at Vienna, effected
their diecoaifi ure and disappearance, and our
troops iu thai quarter wne again withdrawn
witnin our lines, having discharged the duty
A' the close of the engagement before Black
burn's ford, I directed Gen. Longstreet to
withdraw the 1st and 17;h regiments, which
had borne the brunt of tbe action, to a posi
tion in reserve, leaving Col. Early to occupy
tbe field wilb his brigade and Garland's rgi
As a part of the history of this engagement,
I des.re to place on re -ord that on the ISth of
Tuly not one yard of iiitrenchments nor one
rifle pit sbrltered the men at Blackburn's ford,
who, officers and men, witb rare exceptions,
were ou that dy for the first time under fire,
and who, taking and maintaining every position
ordered, cannot be too much commended for
their soldierly behavior.
Our artillery was n anned and officered by
those w ho but yesterday wei e called from the
civil avocations of a busy city. They were
matched wd.h the picked light artillery of the
Federal regular army, company ," 3J ar- .
tiilery, undei apt. Ayres, wud an armament,
as their own chief of artillery admits, of two
10-pounder Parrott rifled guns, two 12-pounder
bowi zer and two 6 pounder pieces, aided by
two 20 pounder Parrott rifled gur.8 of company
"G," 5th artillery, under Lieut. Benjamin.
Thus matched, they drove their veteran adver
saries from the field, giving confidence in, and
promise of, tbe coming efficiency of that bril
liant arm of ourseivice.
Having thus related tbe main or general re
sults and events of the action of Bull Run, in
conclusion, it is proper to signalize some of
thoBe who contributed most to the satisfactory
results cf that day.
Tbsnks are due to Brig. Ginerals Bonham
and Lwrll, and to Col. Cocke, and tbe officers
under them, for the ability B'nuwn in conduct
ing and execu'ing the ret'ograde movements
on Bull Run, directed in my orders of the S h
July movements on which hung tbe fortunes
of tbts army.
Brig. Gen. Longstreet, who commanded im
mediately the troops engaged at Blackburn's
ford, on ibe 18:h, equaled my confident ex
pectat ons, and 1 may fi ly say tha', by bis
presence at the right placo at th right mo
ment among bis men, by 'he exhibition of
characteristic coolness, snd by his words of
encouragement to the men of bis command, he
inspired a confidence and spirit that contrib
uted largely lo the success of our arms on that

pacity for command and personal gallantry.
Coi. Moore, commanding the First Virginia
volunteers, was severely wounded at tbe bead
of liia re men, the command of which sub-
s quentlv devolved upon Mai. skinner, Lieut.- I
Col. Fry having been obliged to leave ihe field
in consequence of a eunstrcke.
An accomplished, promising officer, Major
Car er H. H -irrison, Eleventh Virginia volun
teers, was lost to the service. While leading
two companies of bis regiment against the
enemy, be fell, twice shot, mortally wounded.
Brig. -Gen. Longstreet, while finding on all
sides alacrity, ardor and intelligence, mei.t out
his special obligations to Cols. Mooie, Gar
hi.daiid Cro-s, comrfidirg severally regi
ments of bis brigade, and 'o tueir fi.-li officers,
Lieut.-Cols. Fry, Fansteu and Muuford, and
lfj. Brent and Skinner, of whom he says:
" ltiey displayed more coolness and energy
than is usual among veterans of tbe old ad
vice." Gen. Longstreet also mentions tbe
conduct or Capt. Marye, of the 17th Virginia
volunteers, as especially gailant on one occa
aion in advance of tbe ftrd.
Tbe reg.mente at Early's brigade were com
manded by C I. Hany Hays and Lieut. -Cols.
Williams and Hairston, wbo handltd their
commands in action with satisfacory coolness
and skill, supported by their field officers, Lieut.
Col. De Cboiseui and Mj Penn, of Seventh
Louisiana, and Maj. Patton, of tbe iievenib
Tub skill, the conduct, and tbe soldierly
-juahtis. of tbs Wa.Klnjton Artillery eogajsd
were all that could be desired. Tbe officers
and men attached to tbe seven pieces already
specified won for tteir battalion a distinction
which, I feel assured, will i ever be tarnished,
and w hich will ever serve to urge tbem and their
cor,ia to high endeavor. Lieu'enant Squires
worthily commanded the r ieces in ac ion. Tbe
commander of tbe battalion was necessarily
absent from the immediate field, under orders
in the sphere of bis duties, but the fruits of his
d.scipline, zeal, instruction and capacity as an
artillery commander, were present, and must
redound to bis reputstion.
On the left, at MieheL's ford, while no se.
rious engagement occurred, the conduct of all
was eminently satisfactory to the general offi
cers in command.
II p due, however, fo Colonel J. L. Kemper,
Virg nia forces, to express niy sense of the
value of his services in the preparation for and
execution of tbe retreat from Fairfax Court
House, on Bull Run. Called fromjtbe head of
his regiment by what appeared to me an im
perative need of the service, to take charge of
the superior duties of the quartermaster's de
par'ment, with the advance at that critical
juncture, be accepted the responsibilities In
volved, and was eminently efficient.
For further information touching officers
and individuals of the 1st brigade, and the
details of Ihe r trograde movement, I have to
refer particularly to the report of Brigadier
General Bonbam herewith.
It is proper here to state that while from
the outset it bad been determined, on the ap
proach of the enemy in force, to fall back and
hght him on the line of Bull Run, yet he posi
tion occupied by Gen. Ewell's brigade, if
necessary, could have been maintained against
a largely superior force. This was special
ly tbe case with the position of tbe 5'.h Ala
bama volunteers, Col. Rhodes, which that
excellent officer had ma !e capable of a reso
lute, pro'racted defense against heavy odds.
Accordingly, on the morning of the 17th ultimo,
when the enemy aopearel before that position,
they were checked and held at bay, with some
confessed Iobs, in a skirmish in advance of
the works, in which Msj. Morgan and Capt.
Sheiley, 5th regiment A!bama volunteers,
act-d with intelligent gallantry ; and tbe post
was only sbandoned under general but specific
Imperative orders, in conformity witb a long
conceived, established plan cf action and
Capt. Alexander, of the Confederate Stales
n t neers, fortunately j3ined my headquarters
in time to introduce the system of new field
signal?, which under his skillful management,
rendered roe the most important service pre
ceding and during tbe engagement.
The medical officers serving with 'be regi
ments engaged, were at their proper posts, and
lis'tiarged their duties with satisfactory skill
and seat; and on one occasion at least, under
an annoying fire, when Sirpeon Cullen, 1st
regiment Virginia volunteers, was obliged to
remove our wounded from the hospital, which
had become the special target of the enemy's
rule guns, notwithstanding it was surmounted
by the usual yellow hospital flag, but which,
however, I bope, for tbe sake of past associa
tions, was Ignorantly mistaken for a Confed
erate flag. Tbe name of each individual
medical officer I cannot mention.
On the day of tbe engagement I was attend
ed by rr.y personal staff, Liet. Ferguson, Aid-de-camp,
and my volunteer Aids-de camp,
Cois. Preston, Manning, Ctiesnut, Miles,
Ctiisbolm, and Hevward, of Boatfa Carolina.

fold essential services in the transmission of

Our casualties, in all sixty-eigh' killed and
: wounded, were firteen (including two reported
missing) killed and fifty-tbree wounded, sever
al of whom have since died. The loss of the
enemy can only be conjectured. It was un
questionably heavy. In tbe cursory examina

From tbe TVchmocd Dispatch
This general bas attracted much attention
because of his appointment to succeed McClel
lan, wbo having become famous for absolutely
nothing, was transferred to succeed McDowell.
Gen. Btoseneranz may be an extraordinary
general j but hs bu to show it It hs is. From
what we learn of his antecedents, we should
no' suppose him to be much of a soldier. He
is represented to us, y persons who know him
well, as a very vis onary man. He is more or
literary man ihan a soldier. More ornamental
than useful, and two visionary to be practical.
He is of German dscen', a .native of Ouio,
and a graduate of Wes' Point.' He has devo
ted much study to chemistry and geology, and
resided some time in C.iaileston, Kanawha,
prosecuting some researches into the mineral
riches of the region thereabouts. He was
a'so employed in tbe same capacity for a time
by some of the coal companies or some of Ihe
coal oil manufacturers there. His last enter
prise previous to the war, wa the establish
ment or an oil factory in Cincinnati. He es
sayed, after Yani:ee fashion, to make an imi
tation, from cheap Ingredients, of the coal oil
Tn tbig he was smashed up pecuniarily, and at
tbe time of the war was without capital and
without employment. The war was, t herefcre,
timely event. His militaiy education gave
him a claim to consideration. He had been an
other of the United States army, but had re
signed to Toilow the deceptive and speculative
lights from coal and other gases. It remains
to be proved whether bis adventure in the war
in search or honor and glory will Inra out
more profitable to bim. Hebastue m'sfottiioe
to succeed a general who became suddenly fa
mous for forcing a handful of men to retreat
oefore an overwhelming army j and to take
charge of tbist army under citcumstances
which will require him to do a git-at deal and
show true gent-ralsbip, or at or.ee to lose g
favor with the Yankees, who arc as ready to
condemn a general lor nothing ss they aie to
applaud hira tor nothing. The literary oil
making general, we conjecture, will have fig
uratively, if not really, to perform the hari
kari, and descend to the melancholy and dreary
regions of ruined reputations, whether Butler,
Patterson arid McDowell have prere.Vd turn.
