we were keeping fo quiet over on their

Bide of the James but we were very
much on the alert and active in watch

It was rumored that Gen Lee as a last

effort to break our lines at some weak
point on his left and would select the

works and if they heard any unusual
firing on our pickets half a mile away
they were to give the signal to arms
and prepare for action Had Gen Lee
so concluded and thrown a- corps of
his men against us and succeeded in
breaking thru there is no telling what
might have happened Certainly he
would have captured Point of- Rocks
and Broadway Landing and then made
for our stores and supplies at Bermuda
Landing and City Point and if not
checked would have come up in our
rear in front of Petersburg which
would have placed us In a very bad po
sition for awhile at least Hence the
Importance of holding the Bermuda
lines which were not at all Impregna
ble On the morning of the 3d every
thing seemingly being unusually quiet
the night before our officers came to
the conclusion that the Johnnies had
evacuated our front between the Ap
pomattox and James so accordingly
we were ordered to a position farther
to the right about half way between
the two rivers where we threw out a
skirmish line advanced to the Confed
erate earthworks mounted the same
and behold there was not a Johnny
In sight but by appearance of thing3
Lthey had left their works some time
between midnight and daylight in a
hurry as not a man or even an animal
was found behind the works they had
vacated everything deserted So our
regiment was immediately ordered to
advance and see if we could not over
take some of their rear guard at least
and gather in the stragglers but not
a soul of them did we see or hear of
until we reached Chester Station Wo

up the railroad While passing thru a
cut in the road we spied up on the left
bank an ofllcer and orderly mounted
going in the same direction It proved
to be Gen Warren and his body ser
vant Soon as the boys found out who
he was they took off their caps and
cheered him The General had just
been relieved by order of Gon Sheri
dan at Five Forks the day berore ana
he was then on his way to Richmond
to report to Gen Terry for transporta
tion to Washington but we did not
know then he had been relieved or tho
cause of it until a few days later About
noon we reached the Station and went
Into bivouac There we got word that
the Johnnies were just beyond retreat
ing on a wagon road and making for
Amelia Court House to join the rest of
Lees army who were nil making tor
that point Our company Battery II
was at once called on to fall In and
follow what had been an old railroad
hmnrh formerlv used as a coal road
When we had gotten within a few hun
dred yards of the wagon road we spied
Confederate artillery skedaddling along
it for all they were worm it proveu
to be Gen Mahones artillery and his
wagon train Following close behind
Lieut McGurk commanding ordered
us to deploy to the right into a strip
of woods at a double qujck try and
get ahead and cut them off but Then
we got thru the woods and came out
to a small open field with a ranch lo
cated In one corner of it we spied two
or three johnnies making for the house
which they entered We also made
for the house to capture them We
entered and searched downstairs and
upstairs and under the beds but found
none of them It seems while we went
in the back door they had skipped out
the front door entered a cabbage or
turnip hole and apparently pulled the
hole in after them or rather had put
some loose straw In the hole after they
got inside to drive away suspicion But
the boys were not to be fooled they
shoved the straw In with the butts of
their guns and to their dismay out
came a couple of Johnnies two of tho
sheeplest and sickliest looking rats you
ever laid eves on They would have
made Rip Van Winkle feel ashamed
of himself While we were monkeying
with these fellows the last of the artil
lery had gotten by us we soon lounu
this out when we got out onto the road
for we saw In a puuaie in me roau
they had dumped a part of their am
rmmiflnn The Lieutenant seeing it
was useless to follow up the road any
further as they had gotten too far
ahead of us turned his attention down
the road and ordered us forward cau
tioning us to keep quiet as If there
were any Johnnies below he wanted to
take them by surprise which we would
have done had It not been for Nagle
one of our buglers who ran ahead of
the ranks around the bend of the road
bawling Here they are boys come
on come on The Lieutenant went
for him and threatened to break his
sword over his rear parts If he did not
get back and stay where ho belonged
In the ranks Of course soon as the
Johnnies heard this calf bawl and saw
us coming down they were alarmed
and mounted a rail fenre and skedad
dled across tin open field between us
and their wagon train which they had
left standing in the middle of the toad
Some of them stopped and turned
around to give us a parting shot just
to give us to understand they were still
alive They were part of Gen Mahones
wagon guard wo had come in contact
with Had they not been alarmed we
would have captured the larger part of
them but as it was we only succeeded
in gathering In about a dozen of them
Tho boys wanted to ransack the wagons
before they quit but the Lieutenant in
command would not allow It as the
wagons might have been left standing
there as a decoy We returned to the
Station placed our prisoners In a bomb
proof that had been formerly used for
an Ice house for the hotel and I was
placed as one of the guards over them
That evening orders came for us to re
turn to our old camp at tho Bermuda
front by another route which they
called the River Road We came Into
our lines at about tho same point we
had left thorn in the morning The
next morning April 4 the regiment
was ordered to strike tents and pack

The Iteglmcnt Took Pnrt In Repelling
Iickctf Charge
Editor National Tribune T served
more than three years in the Army of
tho Potomac I also am a subscriber
and reader ot Tho National Trlburie I
think many of the differences that ap
pear from time to time concerning who
did this or that comes from the fact
that they were not correctly reported
at the time or more likely not at all
A caso in point In McElroys de
scription of Picketts charge at tho
Bloody Angle July 3 1863 it does not
appear that any assistance was sent to
the Second Corps before the victory
was secured at that point I desire to

burg The other part of tho company4 history Tho First Division of the Third
b Corps was in line of battle In the vi
cinity of Devils Den and Little Round
Top that afternoon of July 3
After the tremendous shelling and
the charge had started so it was defin
itely known where It would strike our
regiment the 2d Berdan Sharpshoot
ers I shall speak only for the one reg
iment tho there might bo more was
taken from the left not on a double-
quick but a run passed behind the
line marching by fours until a certain
point was reached when the order was
given By the left flank March This
brought us Into line of battle We
moved to the front My company A
being the right of the line came direct
ly behind what I have always under
stood to bo the 14th Conn Our men
came to an Involuntary halt a fow rods
behind the lino and commenced firing
over the heads of those In line for they
were on their knees or otherwise low
Wc fired only a few shots when the
rebels began to throw down their arms
and hold up their hands and at this
tho line in front of us jumped to their
feet and ru3hed over the stone wall to
capture those who were then coming
in The field between us and the Em
mltsburg Road was covered with reb
els running to the rear Wo could have
picked oft many of them but our bul
lets would have gone very close to the
heads of our own men and somehow
We did not have much desire just to
kill some one My first view of the sit
uation was just as the rebels began to
cross the line of boulders One min
ute or not moro than two wo were
flrjng into them and at such short
range and then our boys taking delib
erate aim really tried humanity to look
on Not until wo had fired several
shots did I see any sign of surrender
Some time later we went out after
battery We passed Gen Stannar
who expressed surprise that we shoui
try such an experiment However wi
succeeded but not without some loss

of Mission Ridge recalls his experiences
there Ho says I was in that charge
It was a grand sight never to be for
gotten never to dim in memory- We
advanced In solid battle line as If on
battalion drill across a plain a mile
shot tearing thru ourrankB filling the
air over our heads tearing great holes
in the earth before us now and then
Steadily our line3 moved on manuver
Ing not pausing to minister to our
many wounded or regard our many
slain comrades not regarding the shot
and shell that tore gaps in our ranks
or tore tho air above us Who that was
there can forget those torturing trying
hours before that charge We waited
expectant two hours in full sight of the
enemy whose every evolution and
movement wc could seo them make In
confident preparation for tho attack
they knew we wero to make and all
that time our Generals were placing
our forces for the assault Two armies

What a sight How trying to the men
in the -waiting lines For so many oh
so many it was the last battle Many
of us while waiting there knowing
what war is made careful record for
their pockot of their own name com
pany and regiment and the address of
waiting parent anxious wife or other
relative or friend to whom news might
be sent should the soldier be found

ho might be felt it but went unwav
