A Fight Fcr Cera and Hay.
Drnuesvllle. where the action was
fought on tbe 21 h. Is seventeen miles
west of Washington. On that day
General E. O. C Ord marched his
brljnide of Pennsylvania reserves out
to tather com and hay for the use of
the army, knowing that tbe Confed
erates wocM be after It should It be
left exposed to them too long. Now.
It happened General J. E. B. Stuart,
commanding a Confederate brigade
encamped at Fab-fax, one day's march
south of Dranesville. was out for this
same purpose.. At least he was after
the hay. Stuart suspected that the
Federals were In tbe vicinity and sent
out cavalry detachments to seize tbe
road leading Into the village. These
same roads tbe Pennsylvanlans covet
ed for tbelr own purpose. As usual.
In tbe early battles there was great
confusion as to colors. At one time
the Pennsylvania regiment allowed a
body of Confederates to come close
and pour Into their ranks a deadly
volley because tbey took them to be
friends. Later on two Confederate
regiments, the First Kentucky and
Sixth South Carolina, did tbe same
thing on their side. Tbe mistake pro
duced confusion In Stuart's line.
Pioneer Sharp shooting.
When the main attack of tbe Fed
erals was made Stuart had his cavalry
and artillery well concealed behind
trees and bushes. In those days the
raw soldiers called this sort of thing
an ambush. But there was one regi
ment of Pennsylvanlans on the field
equal to any crisis. Thla was tbe First
rifles, also known as the Thirteenth
reserve and more popularly as the
"Bucktalls." This body of men had
been raised in that region of western
Pennsylvania which Is called the
"wildcat district-" Tbe Idea of enlist
ing mountaineers for warfare originat
ed wit Thomas L. Kane, brother to
the arctic explorer. Dranesville was
the first battle of the -Bncktalls." and
Kane bad a chance to work out bis
own Idea of rifle tactics. With three
companies and a battery be advanced
and captured a brick bouse which was
the Confederate citadel. Tbe "Buck-
tails" lay on the ground and loaded,
then arose, aimed und fired and drop
ped back to load ugnin. Kane was
shot. Tbe enemy wns repulsed. The
affair ended a complete setback for
Stuart. He beat a retreat to a point
Ave miles distant feebly pursued by
such men ns Ord could rally on his
line. At sundown the Federals also
retreated that is to say. they went
bock whence they hr.d come, leaving
Stuart's dead and wounded on tbe Usld.
Next day Stuart marched In and burled
bis dead, the master of Prs nesvllle. He
brought up two additional regiments of
infantry and a detnehment of cavalry.
His total loss the day before was 194
killed, wouuded and mlss-ing. His en
emy lost sixty -eight in all. Before re
tiring Ord loaded bis wagons with corn
and hay. while Stnurt wn glad that be
got bis wagons safely away empty.
This affair was Stuart's first attempt
to handle Infantry in buttle. It was
practically bis last His proper place

The rifle practice of the "BoektaUs"
at Dranesville may be said to bare
marked tbe beginning of sharps hoot
ing In the eastern army. The Confed
erates bad made . some deadly rifle
shots at Balls Bluff, but this was ow
ing to the fact that one regiment there
was armed with quick shooting rifles.
When General McClellan heard what
Kane's mountaineers bad done at
Dranesville he had him take out four
companies of tbe regiment for special
drill In skirmishing tactics. They
were attached to a cavalry brigade
and often outmarched tbe horses, car
rying neither tents nor blankets and
living off the country. lu their first
action with the cavalry a "Bucktail"
rifle brought down the right hand man
of 'Stonewall" Jackson. This was
