If "fortune knocks once at c\ery
man's door," then the fickle dame we
all love to court literally "'butted"
into McClellan's tent tho morning of
September l.'J, 18'*>2. During the pre
ceding day, thc Ililli, the Confederate
outpost was htrctehed along the west
bank of the Manooocy, a short dis
tance east of Frederick. Up to this
time, since tho invasion of Maryland,
the federal cavalry had been but mild
ly aggressive, yielding readily to pres
sure from Stuart's troopers.
On tho morning of September 12 a
provost guard of 24 sabres and two
officers waa detailed from thc six com
mends constituting Hampton's First
brigado, whose duty it was to police
thc town, preservo order and dispatch
all stragglers up thc route the main
army had taken. This duty was not
onerous, and thc detail deemed the
servioo a special favor. During the
day tho enemy in increasing numbers
engaged the ou posts along tho river
and gradually extending his wings,
finally outflanked tho Confederates
abovo and below and forced their re
tirement through and beyond the
town. In accomplishing this move
ment the outpost imposed a new and
important duty upon thc provost
guard-it forced upon this detachment
the post of roar guard.
With tho withdrawal of tho Con
federates tho enemy promptly organ
ized a pursuit. Hin advanoe guard
dashed into the town, receiving de
monstrations of welcome from the
townspeople, justas the provost guard
had formed to move out. To retreat
with tho enemy upon the field invited
disaster upon tho provost guard. Its
commanding officer promptly reversed
his column of fours and faced the yell
ing enemy. This was rather unex
pected to the enemy, who expected to
find the Confederates in full retreat.
Tho advanoe guard halted and opened
a brisk fire upon tho provost guard.
Gou. Hampton, who was present,
detecting thiB blunder, promptly
ordered tho provost guard to oharge.
The dotaohmont quiokly obeyed, and
in several minutes expelled tho enemy
from and beyond the town. The fed
eral force consisted of two troops of
the Thirteenth Pennsylvania cavalry,
the Thirteenth Ohio iafantry and one
pieoe of artillery.
The whole force was driven forward
beyond the town, the gun overriden
and a number of the enemy killed,
wounded and captured, among the lat
ter the commanding officer, Col.
Moore. 7*ho fell a prisoner to your

Pardon this degression from the
Bubjeot of the sketch. It is a preface
that oarries interest to the readers of

and four of the troops were of your
splendid troop, the Georgia Hussars.
While it was a small and insignificant
affair as oompared with the more pre
tentious operations of Lee's army, it
loses no lustre by comparison.
A t dusk that evoning the Confeder
ates withdrew from Frederick. As
upon the oapture of Andre by the con
tinental scouts hinged grave issues,
so the oooupation of Frederick that
evening was fraught with grave dan
ger to Lee and his army.
Around a parcel of three cigars ao
oidently pioked up by a federal ser
geart a copy of tho now famous "spe
cial orders No. 191" was wrapped.
How or why it should be there has
never been explained. Promptly was I
[t imf into McClellan's hands and the *
whole plan of campaign exposed.
As stated, un to September 12
Stuart found litue difficulty in hold
ing in check demonstrations of the
federal oavalry, but on the 13th he
found the aggressiveness of the blue
troops so pronounced as to give em
ployment for all his oommand. Long
street was apprised of the unusual
energy of tho enemy, but seemed slow
to appreciate its impovtanoe. D II.
Hill made what disposition his divi
sion could SH, but the pressure be
came so strong Longstreet was appeal
ed to for assistance. Before that came
in sufficient strength the Confederates
were forced to and beyond the gaps
of the south and Catoctin mountains.
At Boonsborough, Crawpton's and
Turner's gaps heavy masses of the
federal troops pressed for the moun
tain gateways, and by th i night af the
14th had secured their control.
Meanwhile Jaokson hal undertaken
the reduotion of Harper's Ferry, as
as designated in speoial orders No.
.191 the separate commands had per
otfrmed the parts assigned them in
- 'ls bloody drama. But difficulties

?rst-?al divisions did not occupy the

Napoleon said . '"In war. men count
as nothing, a men, everything." Ho
also when campaigns are planned time
is the essential factor. Gen. Lee
planned; the troops could execute the
movement and complete the reduction
I in thc time allotted. It was not done.
Friday was the day assigned by tho
commanding general, but th ? fort was
not surrendered until Sunday. Those
two lost days were McClellan's oppor
tunity. The possession of a copy of
"Special Orders No 191" gave him all
the details, and now it was for him
to frustrate Lee's plans.
Tressing D. II. Hill and Stuart to
and beyond the tops of tho South and
Catocin mountains, McClellan almost
thrust his largo army between the
severed wings of tho Army of North
ern Virginia. McLaws' rear was in
great peril. Ho oould spare but 3,000
of his command to meet one-third of
tho federal army under Franklin.
Stretching these across the Cul-de-sac,
the upper end of Pleasant Valley, ha
made so bold a display the federal
general failed to attack, though his
command numbered 30,000 men.
The defense of Harper's Ferry add
ed speed and pressure to McClellan,
and he was within five miles of the
post when the cessation of fire con
veyed the mute intelligence that the
post had succumbed.
Keen was the mortification of the
federal commander. Yet knowing the
exact position of tho various com
mands of Lee, ho had so forced his
strong army, he was in position to at
tack and beat the separated wings in
his orders to Franklin, McClellan
writes : "My idea is to out the enemj
in two and beat him in detail. I asl
of you at this important moment al
your intellect and the utmost aotivitj
that a general can oxerciso."
But McLaws and Hampton otood ii

a tough proposition to the federal offi

paid dearly io dead and wounded from
the rifles of the "Cracker" brigade.
Quoting from the federal historian,
M. Quad :
"His (Burnside's) orders were to

there is no poiut for a quarter of a
mile up or down that a soldier could
not ford and keep his cartridge box

fired a gun. Ry 10 o'clock tho center
had lost 2,000 men and Burnside had
not killed a Confederate. At 11 o'clock
he was where daylight had found him.
At noon, 0,000 federal lay dead. At 1

When Jackson had repulsed

right wing, composing Hooker's, Mans

Gen. Lee believed that the flank could
bc successfully attacked and crushed.
It bad made good and strong its posi
tion, too much so for Lee's feeble
force to assault. Still Lee believed
the plan possible.
Cul. Henderson, in his most in?rr
esticg "Life of Stonewall Jackson,*'
tells how Lee urged bis plan and di
rected Jackson to take 50 pieces of ar
tillery and annihilate McClellan's
right. Jackson demurred, as the prioe
was too costly.
Taking Col. S. 1>. Lee with him they
rode to a favorable point of observa
tion and carefully scrutinized the situ
ation. After a thorough survey Jack
sou said :
"Colonel, if I give you 50 pieces of
artillery can you destroy them ?"
After a pause, Col. Lee replied am
biguously. Again Jackson said :
"Colonel, if I give you 50 pieces of
artillery can you destroy them ?"
Again Col. Lee replied unsatisfac
torily. Then a third time, with de
liberate emphasis, the great Stonewall
"Colonel, if I give you 50 pieces of
artillery eau you destroy them ?"
Col. Lee realized that no evasion
would suit J ackson. Under great men
tal strain he answered :
"No, Gen. Jackson, I cannot."
"That is all. We will now ride,"
A great revulsion oame over Lee.
Shaking with emotion he exclaimed :
"Gen. Jackson, give me those 50
pieces. If any man can do it ? will !"
"That's all right, Colonel," answer
ed Jackson ; "let us ride on."
Stephen' D. Lee, who had at Seoond
Manassas, less than three weeks be
fore, covered himself and his regiment
of artillery with imperishable fame,
conceiving the idea that Jackson
doubted his mon and courage, again
pleaded for the privilege bf the at
tempt, and on Jaokson declining the
gallant artilleryman burst into tears,
so greatly was he wrought up.
On returning from the Memphis re
union in 1901 the writer, for part of
the way, was a seat mate of Gen. S.D.
Lee, and asked him if he had read
Henderson's "Life of Stonewall Jaok
son." Gen. Lee replied he had not.
The incident was then related, and
just as the writer was concluding the
narrative Gen. Lee exclaimed :
"I remember the incident as if it
had ooourred yesterday. I broke down
and oried like a child."
He was told that was the exact re

SharpBbnrg. McClellan had present
for duty 87,164 men, his army well in

now famous "Special Orders No. 191."
Lee, with his army soattered over miles
of territory, rashly awaited battle, hie
army coming into aotion by piecemeal,
and of all arms but 35,255 weary sol
diers. He pnt every oommand into

It is one of the striking instanoos oi
his rare audsoity. That he was able
to preserve intaot his battle line that
memorable September 17th is one oi
the mysteries of war. Aooording to
