Gordon was to support me, and in case nothing but cavalry was dis-
covered we were to clear it from our route and open a way for oui
remaining troops ; but in case they were supported by heavy bodies
of infantry, the commanding general should at once be notified, in
order that a flag of truce should be sent to accede to the only alter-
native left us. The enemy enabled to take position across our line
of march by moving up from Appomattox station, which they
reached earlier than our main advance, in consequence of our march
being retarded by our wagon trains.

At daybreak on the gth, Gordon's command, numbering about
1,600 muskets, was formed inline of battle a mile west of Appomattox
Court House, on the Lynchburg road. The cavalry corps was formed
on his right, W. H. F. Lee's division being nearest the infantry ;
Rosser's in the center, and Munford's on the extreme right, making
a mounted force of about 2,400 men. Our attack was made about sun-
rise, and the enemy's cavalry quicklyjdriven out of the way, with a
loss of two guns and a number of prisoners. The arrival at this time of
two corps of their infantry necessitated the retiriog of our lines, dur-
ing which, and knowing what would be the result, I withdrew the
cavalry, W. H. F. Lee retiring toward our rear, and Rosser and Mun-
f ord out toward Lynchburg, having cleared that road of the enemy.
Upon hearing that the army of Northern Virginia had surrendered,
the men were generally dispersed and rode off to their homes, sub-
ject to reassembling for a continuation of the struggle. I rode out
in person with a portion of W. H. F. Lee's division, the nearest to
me at that time, and previous to the negotiations between the com-
manders of the two armies. It will be recalled that my action was
in accordance with the views I had expressed in the council the night
before — ^that if a surrender was compelled the next day, I would try
to extricate the cavalry, provided it could be done without compro-
mising the action of the commanding general, but that I would not
avail myself of a cessation of hostilities pending the existence of a
truce. I had an understanding with General Gordon that he should
communicate to you the information of the presence of the enemy's
infantry upon the road in our front. Apart from the fond, though
forlorn hope that future operations were still in store for the cavalry,
I was desirous that they should not be included in the capitulations
because the ownership of their horses was vested in themselves, and

1 deemed it doubtful that terms could be offered allowing such own-
ership to continue. A few days convinced me of the impracticability
of longer entertaining such hopes, and I rode into the Federal lines
and accepted for myself the terms offered the ofiScers of the army of
Northern Virginia. My cavalry are being paroled ?X the nearest
places for such purposes in their counties. . . .

1 particularly regret not being able to do justice in this, the only
way I can, to the many acts of gallantry performed by officers and
men upon the memorable retreat ; but such conduct is usually derived
from the reports of subordinate officers, the absence of which will ex-
plain it. I testify, however, to the general conduct of my officers and
men as highly creditable to themselves upon every occasion which
called forth its display. Thejr fought every day, from the 29th of
March to the gth of April, both inclusive, with a valor as steady as of
yore, and whose brightness was not dimmed by the increasing clouds
of adversity. 1 desire to call attention to the marked and excellent
behavior of Generals W. H. F. Lee, Rosser, and Munford, command-
ing divisions. . . . The notice of the commanding general is also di-
rected to Brig.-Gens. Henry A. Wise and Eppa Hunton, commanding
infantry brigades, and who were more or less under my command
until Amelia Court House was reached. The disheartening surround-
ing influences had no effect upon them ; they kept their duty plainly
in view, and they fully performed it. The past services of Gen. Henry
A. Wise, his antecedents in civil life, and his age, caused his bearing
upon this most trying retreat to shine conspicuously forth. His un-
conquerable spirit was filled with as much earnestness and zeal in
April, 1865, as when he first took up arms four years ago, and the
freedom with which he exposed a long life laden with honors proved
he was willing to sacrifice it if it would conduce toward attaining the
liberty of his country.

[After paying [well-merited tributes to the officers of his staff, in
the conclusion of his report. Gen. Fitz Lee has this to say of a typical
young Virginian :] I deeply regret being obliged to mention the dan-
gerous wounding of my aide-de-camp, Lieut. Charles Minnega-
rode, Jr. One of the last minie balls that whistled on its cruel errand
over the field of Appomattox passed entirely through the upper part
of his body. He fell at my side, where for three long years he had
discharged, his duties with an affectionate fidelity never exceeded, a
courage never surpassed. Wonderfully passing unharmed through
the many battles fought by the two principal armies in this State (for
an impetuous spirit often carried him where the fire was hottest), he
was left at last, writhing in his great pain, to the mercy of the victors
upon the field of our last struggle. . . . Lieutenant Minnegarode
combined the qualities of an aide-de-camp to a general officer in a
remarkable degree. His personal services to me will forever be
prized and remembered, whilst his intelligence, amiability and
brightness of disposition rendered him an object of endearment
to all.

Brevet Brig. -Gen. Charles A. Whittier, of the United

States volunteers, in a paper read before the Military

Historical Society of Massachusetts, makes the following

comments :

The army of Northern Virginia will deservedly rank as the best



CONFEDERA TE MILITARY HISTORY. 557

army which has existed on this continent ; suffering privations un-
known to its opponents, it fought well from the eariy Peninsula days
to the surrender of that small remnant at Appomattox. It seemed
always ready, active, mobile ; without doubt it was composed of the
best men of the South, rushing to what they considered the defense
of their country against a bitter invader ; and they took the places
assigned them, ofiBcer or private, and fought until beaten by superi-
ority of numbers. The North sent no such army to the field, and its
patriotism was of an easier kind ; there was no rallying-cry which
drove all the best — the rich and the educated — to join the fighting
armies. All avocations here went on without interruption ; the law,
the clergy, educational institutions, merchants and traders, suffered
nothing from a diminution of their working forces; we had loyal
leagues, excellent sanitary and Christian commissions, great "war
governors" (Andrew, Curtin and Morton), and secretaries, organizers
of victory; we had a people full of loyalty and devotion to the cause,
and of hatred for the neighbor who diflfered as to the way in which
the war should be conducted, never realizing that the way was by
going, or sending their best and brightest.

As a matter of comparison : We have lately read that from William
and Mary's college, Virginia, thirty-two out of thirty-five professors
and instructors abandoned the college work and joined the army in
the field. Harvard college sent one professor from its large corps of
professors and instructors !

We thought our own Massachusetts a pattern of loyalty and
patriotism during the war. Read the "Record of Massachusetts
Volunteers," as published by the State; the bounties paid (thirteen
million dollars by the State, and more millions by the cities and
towns — a worthless expenditure — to give Massachusetts a nominal
credit, but of no service in sending good fighting men to the front) ;
the desertions; the hosts of men who never joined their regiments;
and there is so much to be ashamed of ! An effort to fill the required
quota, without reference to the good service to be rendered ! The
enlisting officers at one time put out their posters with something
like this: "Enlist in the heavy artillery regiments. No marching,
no fighting, comfortable quarters, etc.!" [General Whittier then
furnishes a list of Massachusetts artillery and infantry regiments,
containing 20,957 men, of which only 95 were killed in battle.] This
does not indicate brilliant or useful service ; and yet the material was
probably better than that of any regiments of the State. The same
class of men in the South was in the thickest of the fight, and their
intelligence and patriotism did a great work. And what a power
these twenty thousand men I have mentioned would have been, with
a little discipline and drill, added to the army of the Potomac — an
army corps of twenty thousand young men from Massachusetts
alone ! If it was so with us, it is reasonable to suppose that other
Northern States pursued the same selfish policy.
