Fight at Fort Stevens Occurred FortyThree
Years Ago.
Description of the Movement North by <
Gen. Early?Interest of President
The surviving comrades of Company K,
1.10th Hegtment of Ohio, "100 (lays' men,"
who occupied the northern forts of Washington
at the time of the battle of "Fort
Stevens in 1SG-1, h;xve arranged to unveil
a monument in Battle Ground cemetery
| tomorrow, the forty-third anniversary of
the date of the battle, to commemorate the
fact that they were the occupants of Fort
Stevens at that time. They say they wish
particularly to recall that their comraTle,
Wm. E. I.each. was the first man to fall.
It is. explained that the early months of
1S?!4 were vastly s'sitirlcnnt in the late
civil war. fit's.ueiu i,iricoin a .si^iieu
a bill reviving the grade of lieutenant gen- J
eral of the army.
At once Gen. Ulysses S. Grant was ap- *
pointed to that position. In the same ,
month Grant appointed William Tecumseh ?
Sherman to the command of all the armies *
between the Mississippi and the Allegheny *
mountains, with orders to move against
Gen. Johnston in Georgia. *
To Hammer Continually. ?
Gen. Grant announced to the northern *
people his purpose to "hammer continually ?
against the armed force of the enemy until *.
there should be nothing left to him but an I *
equal submission with the loyal section of j .
mir oonntrv to thf* Constitution an*! Ifiws *
of tlie land."
Loyal citizens responded to such earnest
words. The awakened sentiment was,
"We must encourage and he'.p Grant to a
vigorous campaign against the armies of
the south."
The governors of Indlina. Illinois, Iowa
and Wisconsin responded to the call of
Governor Brough of Ohio to meet at Washington
for consultation. They addressed to
the President of the United S:ates the following
"we, the governors of our several states,
offer to the President infantry troops for
the approaching campaign, as follows:
Ohio. Illinois, Jo.000; Wisconsin,
5,000; Indiana, 20.000; Iowa, 10,000."
Among the 30.000 men contributed by
<_>ino, a regiment was musiereo liuo i nuea
States service at Cleveland M-iy 2. lMU.
This regiment was sent, under Col. W. H.
Hayward, to occupy the no; thern fortTflcations
of the capital at Washington. It was
denominated the 150th O. V. M. The destination
was reached May l.">. The regiment
was immediately assigned to Forts
Lincoln, Thayer. Totten, S.ocum, Saratoga,
Bunker Hill, Slemmer and Stevens.
Early Moves North.
About that time an unlooked-for turn occurred
in the army movements. Lee was
finding himself closely pressed at Richmond.
and. Napoleon fashion, decided to
send a force to attack the National capital.
Juni 12. 1S&4, he ordered Gen. Jubal A.
Early to take a portion of the Confederate
army and march against Union Gen. David
Hunter, and prevent his apparent plan to
enter Lynchburg, then' occupied by the
Confederate Gen. J. C. Breckenridge.
After routing Hunter, Karly was directed
to move down the Shenandoah valley to the
Potomac river, at a point near Harpers
Ferry, and, crossing Into Maryland, to
move up to Washington city.
It was said to be a daring, rapid and.
until near the end. most successful movement.
The distance was in a direct line not less
than 325 miles. His pursuit after Hunter
and other deviations from the main course
must have added mueli to this estimate
Karly started from Gaines" Mills, on the "
northern defenses of Richmond, June 13, ]
1804. By the 23d he had reached Lynch- j
burg. 100 miles to the weg, and was at ,
Buchanan on his way norm. By July 2 ,
he had passed from the James river to the ?i
Potomac, more than 130 miles, over ground *
nominally held by the enemy. On the 5th ?
he had-driven the Union ?en. Franz Sigei's *
force from Mirtinsburg across the' Potomac *
to Maryland heights beyond, and had
crossed the river himself before Grant was
sure he was r.ot still fronting his own
forces at Richmond. ]
At the Monocacy.
Early, July !>, defeated Gan. I.?ew Wallace <
at the Monocacy river. By daylight of the 4
10th his troops were on the road to Wash- ]
ington. and before night, marching through *
du.st and heat, his veterans bivouacked at r
Rockvllie, ton miles from Fort Stev ns. j.
This was startling and thoroughly alarming ir
to the north.
Early had started from Gaines' Mills at
Richmond with one purpose?the capture
of Washington. Hastening up the Shenan- *
doah valley he threw off Sheridan to the P'
right to go back to Richmond, and Hunter ai
to the left fle-ir.g to the West V.rginia si
mountains. He left Sigel in his fastnesses, s<
did not pursue Wallace to Baltimore, as he .
might have done, but pressed h's i>oorly
.ihod. sun-stricken men to the very defenses a]
of the northern capital. J*
il ir v ha*d planned to reach the environs of J'
Washington Saturday evening, the i'th. ine
id of Sunday. evening, the loth. H<> B'
Mil 1 scarcely have failed to capture the ^
;-.'p:t il if the battle with Wallace had not ?,
lost him a day. ?
v writ: MVUMII'IC lO l!im. j *.
The veteran soldiers had been withdrawn *
from the city to reinforce Grjnt a: P?;>'rs- f
burg. Hunter, upon whom the Union relied
for the defense of Maryland and the District
of Columbia. w;:s on a long detour to ,
find men and ammunition. Pennsylvania !'
and New York state, well drained of sol- ?
diery. were cut off from responding to the
cry of danger by the destruction of railroads
by Karly's cavalry. Harpers Ferry,
Philadelphia. Harrlsburg, New York city
and even Baltimore could not be reached by ,
rail from Washington. c
Force Available. s
The e'ght northern fortifications of the ^
city had, all told, about 1.000 soldiers, and r
they were newly enlisted 100-day men. li
Military force In the city consisted of re- ^
cruits under instruction, invalid corps, hos- ?
pital guards and District militia. All combined
would have been a feeble resistance
to Karly's 2j.OOO veterans. There was panic c
in Washington anil Baltimore. Gold went t
up to the highest point reached during the t
Gen. Wallace on Sunday, the 10th, wired: (j
"I have been defeated. The enemy are not s
pursuing me. I infer they are marching on
Washington." r
Charles A. Dana next morning wired t
Grant: "Washington and Baltimore ar? in ?
a state of great excitement. Both cities are
full of country people fleeing from the I
enemy. Hills, workshops and factories of t
I every sort nave oeen destroyed. From I
twenty-five to fifty miles of me Baltimore
and Ohio railroad have been torn up."
Gen. McCook reported Monday morning
that the "enemy was advancing in force on
the I.eesburg road."
By noon he sent word, saying: "The enemy
is advancing on my front with cavalry,
artillery and infantry."
Again the enemy was reported within
twenty rods of Fort Stevens. By 11 o'clock
clouds of dust and army wagons were approaching
on the 7th street road toward
Fort Stevens. Early seems to have ridden
In advance. He saw the fort, as he reported
that it was "feebly manned."
Rhodes' division of Early's command was
rapidly put Into line and ordered "into the
works." The battle of Fort Stevens had
begun. Washington was attacked. It
seemed more than poarfble that within three

Defense of the City.
T>rt.? rlpnt Lincoln Sunday. July 10, was at i
ort Stevens. He seemed to realize the
eril, and, hastening back to his residence
I Soldiers' Home, sent a message-to Grant,
lying: "General Hal!eck says we have ab- 1
>lute!y no force here to take the field.
* Wallace, with some odds and ends "

hs so badly beaten yesterday at Monocacy <

lould provide to retain your hold where 1

Grant had been inclined to come himself i

) come out from the western hills with i
>.(??) men upon Early's rear, he concluded
istead to send the 6th Corps, with Horatio c
1. Wright in command He so replied to t
,inco!n at 1<):"0 o'clock that Sunday night. 1
Having sent Wright, Grant thought it \
eedfui also to provide additional forces, j

tevi ns about midnight Sunday. The Oth c

changed when Early roused his rested

io his main command was found to be

Stevens, near noon of that hot day in the ;

:ould see how "feebly manned* the forts i

>f exultation to see the prize In reach, to i
feel that behind him were thousands of |

with his Carolinli#is, Georgianu and Ala- i

leld a council with his generals?Breeken'idge,

that action by daylight Tuesday
?as their only hope.
When the Confederate chief the morning
>f the 12th pass-d his fl;Id glass along
he fortifications and saw them lined with
Jnion troops, the hope of destroying the
voiks and entering the city failed him,
et lie seemed not to have felt himself
inable to meet the forces that appeared
n the open tield. Through the forenoon
>f the IJth his skirmish lln.?s and sharpshooters
held their ground, and his forces,
within the range of the fort guns, were
na.?sed behind the ridges and in the ravines
lear the Carberry and Ke?vas houses. Flrng
of musketry continued through the
lours from morning until 5 o'clock In the
ifternoon with little change of front.
Details of the Assault.
Gen. Wright at about 5 o'clock, satisfied
tie was facing the main body of Early's
irmy, determined upon an assault, which
was mainly made by picked regiments of
the Cth Corps.
The charge pas male under the leadership
of (jen. Fraok Wheaton. who ensaiifites
the forces as follows: The 7th Maine
IM New York, Lieut. Col. J. D. Visscher,

from a Vermont brigade.
When these forces were In position for
advancing upon the enemy a signal was
jiven to the gunners In Stevens and adjacent
forts to open lire upon several points
it which Early's forces were massed,
rhese tremendous volleys were directed

Senator Smith Tells Financiers He Is
Opposed to Express Privileges.
DETROIT, Mich., July 1?>. ?Senator William
Alden Smith, speaking here yesterday
at the twentv-flrst annual convention of
the Michigan Bankers' Association, declared
himself against the governmental
ownership of railroads, the extension of
banking privileges by the government to
express companies and the use of the word
bank over any Institution that is not engaged
In the banking business.
"I hope to see the time when the government
will see fit to pass out among the
banks of the country much of the great
surplus with which the national treasury
is filled." said Senator Smith.
"No corporation with carrying power has
any license to cope with or uproot that
grand industry, our banking system. The
government has no license to authorize or
permit any one not under the same Inspec"
n r* roo-nlatlnn n a n ra tV?o nQ,iA110]
banks to compete with bankers.
"I am opposed to government ownership
of railroads. If the government cannot
own and operate tho postal system at a
profit, how can It run the railroads?"
H. C. Potter, Jr., president of the association,
who is vice president of the
People's State Bank of Detroit, in his
innual address declared against the tworent
fare legislation, making the point
that what the people need is not lower
fares, but better service. He also expressed
the opinion^that there is a tendency to
:ax railroads excessively, which prevents
the development of the roads and the
milldlng of new ones.
ssistants will appreciate it greatly.
