to have been, he was not great enough
to win a campnign in territory where
public sentiment was against him. On
the other hand, Grant gained practi
cally all his victories In the enemy's
country. It is a truism in war that
men fight better on their own soil,
when defending their homes. On the
defensive Lee's generalship was mas
terly. When he invaded Union terri
tory he was undone. While his' West
Virginia campaign is the least known
of his entire military career. there is
none that more clearly brings out this
point Even his own partisans admit
its weakness. Magnificently planned,
its breakdown was almost pitiful.

In the meantime things *were hap

was left with a part of the Ninth New

them. Later he was re-enforced by
Colonel Brown with the Twentieth
I~dlana. He first dispatched an expe
dkhlon to disable the abandoned forts
at Ocracoke .Inlet, a few miles down
the shore, and later sent Colonel
Brown and the Twentieth Indiana up

At Hatteras light Colonel ilawkins
was happily encountered with about
500 men, who had marched to the re

With these came the Monticello and
Susquanna. The odds were now
suddenly turned. Waiting for the ad

with flying dlags and bands playing,
the Monticello steamed close in and
began shelling and scattering them.

shots. It was impossible to tell how
much execution was done, but guns
and supplies were left scattered along
the beach, and the Union officers esti
mated that the number of killed and
wounded must have been considerable.
The New York Tribune said that hard

less the southerners afterward report

darkness fell, when the Confederate

of their men off and with them put

the expedition of Colonel Brown had

The blockade of southern ports, at
which the southerners and Europeans
had scoffed in the beginning, was
being made more hefective as the
aonths went by, but was still far from
being complete. It was a stupendous
undertakng, as never In history had a
serious effort been made to blockade so
ong a coast line. The lack of availa
