The enemy proved to be the advance of General Lee's army; remained prisoner at Jefferson all night.

13th. The rebels took us to Harrington and then back to Jefferson; had nothing to eat these two days and men very hungry.

12. Около шести часов утра враг появился на нашем фронте и въехал в наши пикеты; перестрелка весь день, поддерживаема Кавалерией.

В 17.00 мы были подавлены, отрезаны от дивизии, и 127-го нашего полка, среди которых был и ваш покорный слуга, были вынуждены сдаться.

Враг оказался наступлением армии Генерала Ли; оставался пленником в Джефферсоне всю ночь.

13. Повстанцы отвезли нас в Харрингтон, а затем обратно в Джефферсон; нечего есть эти два дня, и мужчины очень голодные.
