Relative Numbers and Losses at Cedar Run. 179

1. In regard to the total Confederate strength under Jackson on August 9 (battle of Cedar Kun), General Gordon is not so far wrong.

General Jackson had at that time Winder's, Swell's and A. P. Hill's divisions and Robertson's brigade of cavalry. The organi- zation was, I believe, as follows on July 23d :


Regta. Stonewall Brigade Second, Fourth, Fifth, Twenty-seventh, and

Thirty-third Virginia regiments 5

Jones' Twenty-first, Forty-second, Forty-eighth Virginia

regiments and First Virginia battalion 3J

TaUaferro's Brigade Tenth, Twenty-third, Thirty-seventh Virginia and Forty-seventh and Forty-eighth Alabama regiments 5

Lawton's Brigade Thirteenth, Twenty-sixth, Thirty-first, Thirty- eighth, Sixtieth and Sixty-first Georgia regiments 6


Earlifs Brigade Thirteenth, Twenty-fifth, Thirty-first, Forty-fourth, Fifty-second, Fifty-eighth Virginia, and Twelfth Georgia regiments, 7

Trimble's Brigade Fifteenth Alabama, Twenty-first Georgia, and Twenty-Mst North Carolina regiments 3

Hays 1 Bngade Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Louisiana regiments and First Louisiana battalion 4J

Maryland Line , 1


Thomas' Brigade Fourteenth, Thirty-fifth, Forty-fifth and Forty- ninth Georgia regiment*, and Third Louisiana battalion 4J

Branch's Brigade Seventh, Eighteenth, Twenrj'-eighth, Thirty- third and Thirty-seventh North Carolina regiments 5

Archer's Brigade First, Seventh and Fourteenth Tennessee and Nineteenth Georgia regiments and Fifth Alabama battalion 4J

Fender's Brigade Sixteenth, Twenty-second, Thitty-fourth and Thirty-eighth North Carolina regiments 4

Field's Brigade Fortieth, Forty-seventh, Fifty-fifth and Sixtieth Vir- ginia and Second heavy artilery regiment., 5

Gregg's Brigade First, Twelfth, Thirteenth and Fourteenth South Carolina and First South Carolina rifles 5

Add to this Stafford's, which arrived just in time for the bat- tle, and w?s under General Hill's command that day :

Stafford's Brigade First, Second, Ninth, Tenth and Fifteenth Louis- iana regiments and Coppen's battalion (of which the Louis- iana reginvnt wa* mainly composed of the Third Louisiana bat r talion of Thomas brigade) 5
