"Words can but feebly portray the feelings of your brother at the end of that long but rapid march, here we were to take the cars to join Beauregard who was at that time fighting the enemy on the memorable plains of Manassas but owing to an accident on the road we failed to reach Manassas until the next day after the fight."

"Arrived at Piedmont, the army began to take passage for Manassas. Owing to a collision of the cars three regiments of our brigade, including the Eleventh, were left there until the 22d, and did not, therefore, participate in the battle."

"Since the return of the army from Parksville, the Thirty-third Virginia regiment, organized by Colonel A C Cummings, had been added to Jackson's brigade; the Sixth North Carolina to Bee's; the Eleventh Georgia to Bartow's; and a fifth brigade formed, for Brigadier General E Kirby Smith, just promoted, of the Nineteenth Mississippi, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, and Eleventh Alabama regiments, and Stannard's Battery. Measles, mumps, and other diseases, to which new troops are subject, had been so prevalent, that the average effective strength of the regiments of this army did not much exceed five hundred men."
