Longstre
Camp nerGordonville. Virginiia.
May 4th, 1865.
On the morniing of the 4th of Maa
we received orders to pack up and ge
ready to move at a minute's warning
We had been camped here all of th<
mnonth of April waiting and watchini
the northern army to see which rout(
General Grant would take on his wa.
to Richmond. On the 4th of Ma
General Longstreet received orders t<
move to the Wilderness. So on th<
evening of the 4th we were put in mo
tion and we went by forced marel
that evening till night before wi

up and going sometimes aliost in 2
run. In ordinary marching the an
rested every 5 or 6 miles but we di(
not stop but twice the whole day o
the 5th, which made us know tha
there was urgent business ahead
Late in the evening we could hear tiM
booming of the cannon and we say
some cavalrymen who reported tha
they had had a battle that day ani
they were leading a wounded horse
There had always been a little feelin
up between the cavalry and infantry
fhe infantry would call them butter
milk rangers and offer large reward:
for a wounded cavalryman. They ac
eused the cavalry of starting a figh
and leaving the infantry to fight i
eut. All of this was carried on in fun
That evening we were marching i
an easterly direction, the sun setting
at our back. We did not stop to caml
till nearly dark and when we did stol
we were told to lay down and ge
what sleep we could, we were to movt
at 2 o'clock next morning. We all go
off to bed soon. Some of the mer
never stretched their tents at all. Jusi
about midrnight a courier came dash
ing into camp and in a few minutet
the long roll was beat. There is noth

than the beating of the long roll. A.l
