DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

BUREAU OF PENSIONS,
Washington, D. C. , September 6, 1900.

SIR : Some years ago I compiled, for the use of the Bureau, an alpha
betical list of battles of the war of the rebellion, which I afterwards
revised. Many additions thereto were made and the battles of the
Mexican, Indian, and Revolutionary wars were also included. This
compilation was as complete as it was possible to make it from the
data to be procured at the time, and it is an accepted fact that it has
proved to be of great assistance to the Bureau.

Some eight or ten years ago, when the Government commenced the
publication of the Rebellion Record, I began a second revision of the
Alphabetical List of Battles, taking said record as authority. I have
also used all the data obtainable from the reports of the various Depart
ments and from what would appear to be other reliable sources, rela
tive to the Spanish- American war and the Philippine insurrection, such
as is believed will be valuable in the adjudication of pension claims on
account of service in said wars.

The work of revision has been done evenings and at odd hours, prin
cipally out of the office. It is now finished and, although it may have
imperfections, it is believed to be as complete as it is possible to make
a work of this kind.

I desire to present to you the manuscript for publication for the use
of the Pension Bureau, reserving for myself all other rights pertaining
thereto.

Very respectfully,

N. A. STRAIT.
Hon. H. CLAY EVANS,

Commissioner of Pensions.



DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,

2 PREFACE.

You state- that the ^vork of revision has been done evenings and at
odd hours. Under those circumstances I consider you justified in
reserving for yourself all other rights and benefits to be derived from
the book, and the same should be respected.
Very respectfully,

H. CLAY EVANS,

Commissioner.

Washington, D. C.



CAUSES OF THE REBELLION.

The North and the South had for years held antagonistic views on
two vital questions the tariff and slavery. The North, being largely
engaged in manufacturing, desired a high tariff; while the South,
whose wealth consisted of cotton, sugar, and slaves, desired free trade.

The question as to the boundary of slave territory was supposed to be
finally settled by the Missouri Compromise of 1820, but when Kansas
and Nebraska were established as Territories the compromise was
repealed, and the question as to whether they should be free or slave
States was left to the people of each Territory to decide for themselves.

Then the trouble began. Both parties, the proslavery and the anti-
slavery, set to work to get a majority of the votes in their favor, but
the settlers from the New England States poured into the new Terri
tory so much more rapidly than those from the Southern States that
when Kansas voted on the proposition she decided against slavery by
an overwhelming majority.

This defeat of the proslaveiy people caused intense feeling through
out the South, and when the Republican party came into power by
the election of Abraham Lincoln, November 6, 1860, the leaders in
Southern politics knew that all hopes of a further extension of slave
territory were gone, and they immediately began to plan for a disso
lution of the Union.

The South Carolina Senators withdrew from Congress November 9
and 11, and that State formally seceded, by a vote of the people,
December 20, 1860. It was followed by Mississippi January 9 ; Florida,
January 10; Alabama, January 11; Georgia, January 19~; Louisiana,
January 26; Texas, February 1; Virginia, April 17; Arkansas, May 6;
North Carolina, May 21; and Tennessee June 8, 1861. The western
portion of Virginia refused to secede, and became a separate State
in 1863.

The war opened with the firing on the Star of the West by the Con
federate batteries in Charleston Harbor January 9, 1861, and closed,
practicallv, with Lee s surrender, April 9, 1865.
