Incidents of th<
[Paper read before Camp W, J.
Hardee, Birmingham, Ala., by P. M.
V&oce, firm lieutenant of Company F
(Bibb's Graye), 11th Alabama Regi
ment, Wilcox's Old Brigade, at that
time commanded by Gen. John C. C.
The morning before the desperate
aad bloody hattie I was in charge of
the picket Hoe immediately in front
of our camp. About ten o'clock,
while I was standing on an embank
ment which had been thrown up for
protection, the Federal pickets being
just in front, Gen. It. ?. Lee rode up
and dismounted. Stepping to my side,
he asked: "Lieutenant, have you
noticed any unusual movement of the
enemy?" Bringing my sword to a
salute, I replied: "I have not. Look
out, General, do you see that tree?
There is a sharpshooter in the top of
it." At that moment I ssw a cuff of
smoke, heard the whix of a bullet sod
the disoharge of the gun, sud the
missile ended the life of a pioket just
relieved ss be lay io his tent. Goo.
Leo stopped down from the embank
ment, remounted bis horse, and rode
away. We were expecting something
unusual to happen, it having been
rumored that Gen,. Grant was prepcr
ing to blow uo up.
On the morning of July 30, about
sunrise, we heard a mighty noise that
shook the earth. Soon Saunders'
Brigade was ordered from the right to
tho left, and moved up a ravine front"
ing the Orator. It was here that Gen.
Mshone made a speeoh to the brigade,
telling them that they had been
seleoted to make a desperate oharge
and that Gen. Lee would be present
with him to witness their achievement.
Gen. Lee was sitting on his horse in ?
cluster of trees near by at the time,
scanning the Federal movements with
his field glssses. Gen. Mahons com* I
plimented the men and officers of the j
brigade as Alabamians, who never j
failed to disoharge their duty to their
country at any peril.
Then the brigade was ordered for?
ward. Arriving at the top of the
slope, we marched straight forward
cut into the open field, in full view of
the Grater and under a heavy fire from
the Federal musketry and oancon.
The men were then ordered to front
faoe and "Forward to the Grater'*
through a continuoua fire of musketry,
grape, and oanister. When a soldier
waa shot down, the order was passed
along the line, "Glose up, men," and
I never saw a prettier,,lino kept on
dri?. Arriving oiose to (he c?derais,
who were in the Crater sad ditoheo,
the order carno dova the line" from
Gen. Saunders, "Fire and oharge bay
onets!" and with a yell that tended to
drown the rattle of musketry, the
screeching of aballa, and tba moen of
i the dying, into the ditohes the brigade
weet. ;T. .
Words fail me to describe the scene
that followed. Gen. PTatone had told
the soldiers of the bigada that negro
troops Were in possession of the Crater
and had eome in yelling, "No quarter
for the Rebelst" He did not say,
"Shaw ?qv quarter," but Saunders*
mea decided that point.
Having driven these negroes out of
the first lina of ditches, Gen. Saun?
dors, ever on heed, shirking no den?
ger, dashed to tba front on bia beauti
ful bleak charger and ordered me to
take my company and go over the em
bankment that had been thrown up by
the explosion. Giving thia order to
my company, we climbed to the top of
the embankment. Lieut. Harkness,
of Company C, waa toon by my aide
waving the colors of the regiment and
shouting to the boya to "Come on!"
At that moment a big* negro aoldier
down in the pit railed his gun aad
Gred, sending abell through my leg,
v/hioh grated the bone above the
itaee. My leg waa' paralysed for a mo- j
men?, and ? fell forward, int o the'pit
on top of the negro. ., T , , ' .
Then it was, who will ger the" best
of it? ; The negro bad a large spring
back dirk in one hand, and made! a
desperate effort to thrust it into\ me.
I grasped the negro's hand, holding it
fast end making an effort with my
right hand to run my sword through
him; but 1 oould not do so, owing to
the smallness of the pit. lu this situ
ation but one thing waa (aft for me to
do; that was to hug the negro and
wait until my man came to my assist
ance. Meanwhile I had to inhale an
odor equaled only by a skunk. My
comrades came to my relief none to
toon, as I waa growing weaker and
weaker j from loss of blood, tfa^sy
plunged their bayoneta through tina
negros*s body. One ef my company,
Fred James, now living near Center
ville, Ala., gave the nsgro a blow ba
the top o? hU head that killed him.
By this time sigh* bad set in. and I
waa f placed "upon a /litter made \ot
blankets by com* of my comrades and
carried back lo the rear. I was ex

hausted from loss of blood aod death
ly oick. Oa reaching tho field hos
pital I waa placed upon a rough table.
I still had tho dirk knife in my hand,
and laid it by my side. When the
surgeon began to examine my wound,
probing into it, I was kept so busy
watohiog him for fear be would cut
my leg off that I forgot all about tho
knife, and never saw it again.
When the war broke out, Gen.
Saunders and I were together at the
State University. We were dose
friends. He was a modest man, a
tried and true soldier.
[At the reading of the foregoing
there was present a sister of Gen.
Saunders, who was introduced by
Comrade McLaughlin to Camp Har*
Confederate Cartridges at Appomattox.

oooseontively in three New York regi
ments, 1861 65, now of Madison,Tenn.]
Tba great War between the States
left in the minds of the survivors
msoy interesting inoideots, both pa
thetic and humorous. Msny of
these survive only in the hesrts of
oomrsdes (on either side) and are
buried with them when they die. I.
wili relate one incident of the sur
render of Lee at Appomattox of
whioh I was an eye witness. I never
but ucee saw it referred to in print.
I will tell it as it was for the benefit of
On the day of capitulation, April 9,
1865, or it may have been the follow
ing day, April 10, our corps,/ the 5 tb.
was drawn up in two lines to receive
the arms of the Confederates. They
marohed up by brigades and divisions
in the little main street of Appomat
tox C. H.. stacked arms, onkuekliog
their belts, hung their accouterments
on the eteok of guns and broke ranks,
goiog wherever they were inclined,
being fros oo parole. AU the arms
were stacked--and, by the way, out of
approximately thirty thousand men
who surrendered that day only about
ten thousand stands of small arms
were surrendered. Whet became of
the rest? Will some Confederate
soldier who knows enlighten me?
[There were not thirty thousand
armed men tb oro.-Ed. Veteran.]
Our ??oops soon thereafter started
on the march to Burksville Jonction,
utterly destitute of rations. There
were no rations for either army, as wo
"by order had divided equally with the

what tho result would bo, went to^
house near by and, getting a shovelful
of coals and throwing them down into

tha cartridges which had previously
been taken out of tho boxes and
emptied upon the ground. ? This made
*a considerable diversion at the ticae.

True Cause of Civil War.
History, to deserve the name, should
be true and impartial. The true oause
of war does not always appear on the
surface. The instigators prefer, for
various reasons, to oooceal tho real
motives for bringing it on. It WOB a
common thing for the Federal soldiers
to say they were fighting for the
Union, seeming rather to say ?aal
than to say they were fighting to free
the negroes. The most frequent onus?
assigned was the desire on the part
of the people of the North to liberat<
the negroes from slavery, based 01
feelings of philanthropy. Boraci
I Greely, ?Bsrriet Ttaecher 8towe, Abra
ham Lincoln and some others ma]
have been co actuated, but tba pri'nei
pal actors io the great drama looke<
muon deeper. The real' motive to
bringing on the war waa to get centro
of the Federal government. To atteii
this end ?no emancipation of th
negroes waa necessary. The South
by ita superior civilization and the in
telligenoe of its oitisehs, had from it
incipiency held the soeptre of govern
ment. The fathers of the republic
whose impress was most deeply fell
were Southerners. In the- field, o
the forum, in the halls of legislador,
the South held full away. A larg
proportion of the Presidenta had bee
Southern men. Slavery afforded oj
portunity for leisure and the neoessai
means to become educated, aa well i
the cultivation of those high and. -ai
