By order of General lee;
W. H. TAYLOR,
HDQRS. ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA, July 17, 1863.
Honorable JAMES A. SEDDON, Secretary of War:
SIR: I regret to announce the death of General J. J. Pettigraw, commanding the north Carolina brigade of Heth`s division, General A. P. Hill`s corps.
He was wounded by a pistol-shot in the attack of the enemy`s cavalry on our rear guard in crossing the Potomac on the Morning of the 14th instant.
The army has lost a brave soldier and the Confederacy an accomplished officer. The senior colonel of the brigade, a good soldier, Colonel C. Leventhorpe, was wounded at the battle of Gettysburg, and is absent, I do not know how long he will be detained from duty.
Colonel T. C. Singeltary, the next officer in rank, is absent with his regiment at Hanover Junction. I have no other officer whom I can put in command of the brigade. I therefore wish very much to get his regiment with the brigade, if he can possibly be relieved. I request, if practicable, that some other troops be sent to guard that point, and this regiment be ordered to join me.
I am, with great respect, your obedient servant,
R. E. LEE,
*Revoked July 19.
