COI DODGE AN
From the Wilmington Star.
In the Julv number of The United lack of knowledge of our movements,
Service, the magazine of the Array and due primarily to his being In hostile
Navy, there is a capital paper 'upon territory, but in almost equel measure
"The Gettysburg Campaign," by obsence of Stuart." The absence
Lieut. Col. Theodore A. Dodge of the of Stuart was most unfortunate. He

fair and to realize the qualities and
difficulties of the Southern armies.
It is very decidedly the fairest paper
on the war we have thus far read from
a Northern source, and is to be com
mended for its liberal and apprecia
tive tone as well as for its decided
ability. The author goes back of the
an County Sunday School Associ
that time Lee was without cavalry.
We have no doubt that Gettysburg
would never have been fought, or if
fought would have been differently
fought if Stuart had been with
Col. Dodge gives clear statemens
of what occurred on the three days of
Gettysburg battle and in his survey of. be: , e shows where there were
the whole field you are the better en
abled to understand the difficulty that
environed General Lee in his ag
gressive campaign. No Southern offi
cer who participated in the battle
will hardly agree to all that it said,
but all will appreciate and applaud
the evident effort of the writer to deal
with the greatest' battle of the war,
and one of the greatest battles of the
century in a spirit of candor and fair
ness.. Whatever the errors that may
be detected in the account, it will be
conceded that Col. Dodge's 4 paper is
a most readable and instructive con
tribution to the great mass of war lit
erature that is accumulating.
The interested reader will be struck
with the fact that Col. Bodge does not
attempt to evade or gloss the com
pleteness of Gen. Lee's victories. For
instance, of McClellan he says that he
"had moved into the Peninsular,
where, after three months of useless
struggle, was forced to retreat having
fought a dozen bloody battles, to a
-new base on the-James." The reader
of McClellan's antl other papers will
be impressed with the candor of Col.
Dodge in contrast with the disingenu
ousness and actual falsifying of the
Federal writers in The Century Maga
Col. Dodge represents McClellan
as defeating Lee atSharpsburg. We do
not think that he is exactly correct in
this. Sharpsburg could not be claim
ed as a Federal victory when Gen.
Lee stood ready to gi ve battle a sec
ond day, which was not accepted by
McClellan. He is sufficiently plain
spoken even when dealing with his
own people. Referring to Gen. Lee
up to the time ot his invasion ot
Pennsylvania, which he says was
contrary to Lee's judgment, but the
the Davis regime insisted, and .Lee

mistakes made. According to him
the surroundings of Lee were such he
was forcer to fight. His men expect
ed it, but he adds, "Lee guaged bet
ter than his men the fighting qualities
of the foe." He shows what tremen
dous obstacles and difficulties Lee had
to contend with on the second and
third day, but he was "impelled by
the temper of his men to boldly at
tack. Longstreet was very slow on
the second day, and Lee rather blun
dered, he thinks, in his plan of the
third day's attack. He says he ought
to have concentrated "alf his forces
along the line of Seminory Ridge."
Lee was mislead by E well's confi
dence in his ability to capture Culp's
Hill. But if he discusses Lee's er
ror he immediately says: "However
admirable Lee's tactics generally were,
I however easily he stands chief among
the soldiers of our Civil -War he was
here open to criticism." He says af
ter the fight it is easy to criticise when
we have Charts of the field, ample
materials for investigation, "the ben
efit of the research and acumen of the
best military judges," and "viewing
the field as we do a problem on the
chess board," with perfect knowledge
of numbers, &c. He says we may
now pass judgment on Lee's general
ship; but if we stood where stood it
would be altogether another task. He
savs that Lee will go into history and
will be "enrolled upon the short first
page of Captains of the World."
He also recognizes the splendid ge
nius of Stonewall Jackson and more
than once praises it heartily. He al
so has a high opinion of A. P. Hill,
Jeb Stuart, Longstreet and Ewell.

the splendid fighting qualities of "the

npss to the general srood conduct of
the Confedorates when Lee invaded
Pennsylvania. His testimony is true
as all Confederates know. We quote
what he sayst
