A CAPTAIN'S BRAVERY.
His Courage Was Rewarded by
Applause from the Enemy.
In the latter part of the winter of
iw4 Lee's army of northern Virginia
was in intmraent alunjr the Itapidan
river, while the union forces under
lien. Meade, occupied the country
alMiut t'ulpeper Court House, facing the
The winter had been so severe that
military operations of any majrnituile

the cavalry were kept employed, on the
union side at least, in watching an ex
tended line and from time to time mak
ing recon noissa nces to develop the
enemy, with a view to ascertaining if
any considerable part of his force had
lieen detached to other fields of opera
tion farther south.
On one of these recon noissa nces the
event iKi'urred which I am alnrnt to re
late. It must le premised, to an under
standing of what follows, that when
the object of one army is to find out or
develop facts as to the other, then this
last thwarts attempts of the kind as
far as possible in order to keep the ad

with instructions to
reconnoitre the left of the enemy's line
on the Kapidan river, and develop the
force in that direction without bring
ing on a general engagement.
To reach the desired position it was
necessary to march a considerable d
tance to the south and cross the llolr
i ii son river, a tributary of the Kapidan.
The division consisted of three brig
ades of cavalry, each of the brigades le
ing accompanied by a battery of light,
or horse, artillery. A force of confed
erate cavalry which was on picket duty
on I.ohinson river was easily driven in,
and on the evening of the dny we

the hour, put off till the following
morning. After placing our pickets to j
insure against surprise, we made our-
M'lv-sasci.mfortable for the night :is ;
the weather of an unusually raw Vir- !
ginia rebmary would permit.
barlv the following morning the cav
alry and artillery moved toward the
river in our front, anil a lively skirmish
with small arms accompanied by artil
lery, commenced anil was well sus
tained on both sides.
The result was far from satisfactory.
To what we would, the enemy persist
ently declined to show force lievond
what was ncecssa ry to c n ga gc oh r
skirmish lines; and he uncovered but a
gun or two at intervals along his lines
to reply to our artillery.
We could plainly make out long and
formidable nreastworks on the farther
bank of the river; but whether these
were occupied by many or few soldiers.
our lest ef torts ant most ingenious
plans failed to discover. The entire
morning was spent in these rain at
tempts. It will be understood that loss of life
on the picket line and to a less degree
on recon noissa nee is not directly de
cisive of a wan hence we speak of lives
'thrown away" in these duties. How
ever, in order to gather information, it
may be necessary to expwse soldiers to
danger, wounds and even death; and
we were now facing that necessity.
It was finally decided that the only
way to make the enemy show his force
was to cross, or try to cross, the ford in
our front. If this succeeded, the enemy
was to be driven out of his works if
possible: if not, he would drive ns back i
across the stream with possibly severe f
loss to our troops.
reluctantly, under these circum
stances, the division was organized for
leading the advance guard, consist
ing of a squadron of cavalry, was Capt
Ash destined to be the hero of the oc

firing and booming of large guns which
had attended our attempts of the morn
ing were hashed, and the silence which
prevailed showed that the enemy was !
intent on keeping ns in ignorance of
their numbers, and determined to make
us pay heavily for information.
The anxiety was intense. We knew
when the enemy opened fire at short
range that the loss would be great, and
all felt that the advance guard must be
the first and greatst sufferers.
Ash with his small command moved
on. The works in front, gloomy and
ilent. denuded and stained by a win

Trot, march! was the command, as
Ash hurried his squadron forward to
fchare the shock with his leading men.
Many a strong man in our command
prayed at thu; moment for Ash and his
men. He had now gained a vantage
position where, because of a turn in
the river above, he commanded a view
of the interior of the confederate
breastworks. What he aw no one
But just then the eneny opened with
a few scattering shots, and a withering
volley followed. By a motion rather
than a command. Ash intimated to his
squadron to seek cover, while he, bend
ing forward on his horse's neck, turned ,
to the rifhi and rode at a rapid gallop j
along the rirer bank parallel to the
enemy a works, followed as he came
opposite each new part of the breast
works with volley after Tolley.
There seemed no hope for him, and
we watched with intense anxiety, ex
pecting every moment to see horse and
rider go down. Yet both kept on amid
the storm of lead apparently unhurt.
That something must be done to help
him now was, I doubt not, the thought
in every ones mind.
Suddenly, as Ash reached another
part of his route, where his view of the
confederate lines was still more extend
ed, he raised his hat and waved it over
his head it was a signal of triumph-
Then occurred a scene which has not
been witnessed since the times of the
4 'joyous passages of arms" in the age of
chivalry. To our amazement, the con
federates, moved by admiration for his
gallantry, ceased to fire on the intrepid
horseman. Instead, they mounted on
their breastworks ns thick as they could
stand, and. throwing their hats in the
air. cheered him again and again, mak
ing the valley echo with their shouts.
At this. Ash. taking in the situation
at once, reined tip his horst, and, turn
ing toward the confederates, raised his
liat and acknowle-.lged their cheers with
a graceful salute rcpeatd several times.
Then he turned and nnle leisurely into
our own lines, amid the cheers and ap
plaiftt of his comrades reechoed by
He had accomplished the work with
out the loss of a man, and had seen
himself, and displayed to every one
else, a full force of infantry manning
the confederate works.
The whole affair took less time than
it takes to read this hasty and imperfect
sketch; but I thought, and still think,
that it was the bravest deed on the part
of an individual that I aver witnessed.
'apt Ash, in reporting to me after
ward, stated that his scheme of devel
oping the enemy's force had not oc
curred to him until he had reached the
brink of the river, and found that the
enemy held their works in force.
To g. on meant certain death to
many of his command. To retreat in
the line of direct fire would be equally
disastrous: and the inspiration to do
what he did, ride rapidly across their
Hue of aim. and gradually oblique out
of range, suddenly seized him.
His risk was great and he knew it
attending more dclilieration.
True, no one could have foreseen that
the excitement and rapid tire of the en-
. emv would so far disturb their aim as to
insure that the union officer should es-
cap unhurt; and still less could the ef-
fict of his intrepid conduct on the enemy
have leen foretold.
Now, after the lapse of rears, the
j story f this heroic deed appears almost
fabulous. Then it seined very real,
and all natural enough.
I need scarcely add that as we united
with the confederates in cheering the
lold rider, our hearts went out to tb
generous fie win so well appreciated a
