SICK AND WOUNDED CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS
AT HAGERSTOWN AND WILLIAMSPORT.

OLD RECORD SENT TO GOVERNOR TYLER.   


Dr. J. M. Gaines, the Surgeon in Charge, Wishes It Preserved to Posterity -
List Contains Nearly Three Hundred Names.

Governor Tyler has received from Dr. J. M. Gaines, of Hagerstown, Md., late surgeon 18th Virginia infantry, Garnett's brigade, Pickett's division, Longstreet's corps, Army of Northern Virginia, a complete list of the sick and wounded Confederate soldiers left at Williamsport, Pa., and Hagerstown, Md., after the battle of Gettysburg, from July 13 to August 12, 1863.

Dr. Gaines made the report of the number of inmates of these hospitals. By order of General Lee, he was left at Williamsport to care for the wounded of the Army of Northern Virginia. After the hospital was established in Hagerstown, Dr. Gaines was sent thither by
the Federal authorities to care for his wounded comrades. He remained with the wounded and sick until most of them were sent North, chiefly to Chester, Pa. Dr.   Gaines was sent to Chester, and had charge of the ward of the Confederate sick and wounded until they were sent to Point Lookout.   Dr. Gaines was sent to Fort Delaware, and finally to Point Lookout, where he was allowed to attend a ward filled with sick and wounded Confederates. About December 12, 1863, he was sent to Washington and Fort Monroe by way of Baltimore,
and was exchanged.

The rolls sent the Governor are the original copies, and were recently found by Dr. Gaines in his library at Hagerstown. He is a native of Virginia, having been born at Locust Hill, near Culpeper. He is very anxious that the Governor make such disposition of the rolls as will insure their preservations to posterity.

The list has never been published, and the Dispatch presents it below. It will be read with interest, not only by the men who took part in the great struggle at Gettysburg, when what has been termed the "High-water Mark of the Rebellion" was reached, but by all old soldiers and by their children. The name, rank, regiment, date of wound, and date of death, if fatally ill or wounded, are given:
