The crossing was effected in about an hour. When half the party had crossed an attack was made upon us but it was easily repulsed by a few skirmishers.

But a single Road was available and at every Point of Woods we were assailed by a Volley from shot guns carbines and rifles and our flankers were captured As soon As sent out. The enemy invariably declined coming to close quarters scattering before our repeated charges. Notwithstanding these annoyances our Progress though slow was steady until about six p. I when we were forced to make a Long halt to feed both horses and men both being utterly prostrated with fatigue and hunger.

The Advance guard consisted of but six men All that could be spared from the column. Col. Dahlgren had gone to the head of the Advance guard a moment before we were challenged by the enemy. The Challenge was responded to by demanding a a who Are you a the words were repeated and the colonel immediately called out a a surrender or we will shoot you a and snapped his pistol the Cap Only exploding.

Every tree Wras occupied and the Bushes poured Forth a Sheet of fire. A scout who had been somewhat in Advance now returned and reported that the Road was barricaded 200 Yards ahead and was impassable. In a moment a heavy fire Wras opened upon the flank and rear of our column and it was apparent that we w Ere surrounded by the enemy and that escape was impossible. Col.
