General B.ideau's statement that " Washington had really been in very little dan-
ger, for the works were so admirable that the merest handful of men could hold
ofC an army until reinforcements arrived" may be a somewhat extreme assertion.
General Grant's oflRoial report that adequate reinforcements arrived before Early's
troops did seems to be within bounds.

Colonel Johnston, of Brecken ridge's stafE, in the article aliieady cited, speaks of
Early's command as including, July 3d, Breckenridge' s corps, two divisions, Kar'y's
corps, also two divisions, and " a corps of cavalry, commanded by General Ran-



APPENDIX D. 273

Boro. ... the whole bein^ about 3,000 cavalry, most of it beiiip known as wild
cavalry— of the iuefflciency of which there was constant complaint and ulmopt
daily exhibition."

As to Early's numbers, in marching from Stannton, if to the 3 0,663 aggregate in-
fantry present for duty, exclusive of Kershaw'?, on his inppiction reports of August
Slst, be added the 3.000 cavalry spoken of in round numbers, by Colonel Johnston,
or rather the aggregate of 3,508 of Lomax's (previously Ransom's) cavalry com-
mand, present for duty September 10th, we get a force of over 1-^,000 infahlry and
cavalry. The artillery must have brought the total to 15,000, inasmuch as, Sep-
tember SOtb, after a hard campaign, the three battalions that went to Washing-
ton still numbered, aggregate present for duty, 820. Early could hardly have lost
fewer than 2,000 men prior to the inspection returns of August aist, since
Gordon reports that his division alune suffej-ed ti98 casualties at Monocacy, where
McCausland was also heavily engaged ; and Ramseur is known to have lost about
4Q[), perhaps more, at Carter's Farm, August 20th. In addition there were the
losses at Leetown, Miiryland Heights, Fort Stevens, and Snicker's Ferry, and
McCauslaud's cavalry loss of 75 at Cumberland, and of fully 4(:0 at JMoorefield.
Early also speaks of hundreds of stragglers. Making allowance for the very few
reinforcements received on returning to the Valley, we nach the approximate
estimate of 17.000 given in the text. Of course Early had no such force with
which to attack Fort Stevens, as several tlfousand must be deducted for the lo.<;Fe9
then already suffered in battle and hard marching, and for the part of his cavalry
absent around Baltimore; and Iiis artillerimen and train guards would also have
to be deducted from a possible storming column.

Y.— Official Diary of First Corps, A. N. F.i {Extracts).

" August 7th.— Leave Richmond at 7.30 a.m. by rail, and arrive at Mitchell's
Station at dark.

" August 8th. — Last of Kcrs'aw's division arrives to-day.

"August 11th. — Cutshaw's artillery horses and Fitz Lee's cavalry division ar-
rive. Hear of Early at Bunker Hill.

" With Kershaw's division and Cutshaw's battalion of aitillf-ry, we move from
Mitchell's Station soon after sunrise, and halt at Culpeper at midday.

" August 16th. — To hold G-uard Hill and cover the passage of the Shenandoah,
Wofford's brigade of infantry and Wickham's of cavalry and artillery are sent
to seize the position, which is done with the loss of but e'^ght or ten men. Wof-
ford, however, moves off to the right to attack the enemy's cavalry, and the
enemy, just at that moment, having charged and driven back our own cavalry,
pitches into WofEord and drives him back in confnsiim and with loss.-

" August 25th. — Kershaw moves at daylight with Cufcshaw to relieve Rodes and
Ramseur. Early's force moves to threaten Martinsburg, and Fitz Lee (who has
resumed command of all the cavalry) toward WilliamspOrt.

"August 2(ith,— Enemy in position, and quiet until afternoon about five o'clock,
when he advances four or five regiments of infantry and one of cavalry to ftel
our lines. The picket line of the 35th South Carolina Regiment, Kershaw's bri-
gade, breaks, and about 100 men of it are captured. The enemy soon retires.
During the night we hear from Eai-ly, who is at Lcetnwn.

" September 3d. — Move at 12 m. from Winchester for Berryville, by the pike.
Strike the enemy about four miles from Berryville.

" September 15th.— Move at sunrise with Kershaw and Cutshaw up the Valley
pike, and camp oe North Fork of Shenandoah."
