The Daily Dispatch: December 1, 1863., [Electronic resource], Affairs on the Rapidan — no battle yet. (search)
nformation from the seat of war warrants the conclusion that the general fight between the armies of Gens. Lee and Meade, which was expected to commence yesterday, did not take place. Up to 2 o'clock in the afternoon there had only been heavy skirmishing, both armies apparently manœuvring for position. It is hardly possible, however, that a general fight can be delayed longer than to-day. The following official dispatch was received from Gen. Lee at the War Department yesterday: [official Dispatch.] Headq'rs Army of Northern Va., Via Orange C. H., Nov. 30th. To Gen. S. Cooper: No movement of importance by either army yesterday. The enemy is in line on the east side of Mine Run. This army is in position on the west side. (Signed) R. E. Lee, General. [Mine Run is a small stream emptying into the Rapidan. The Fredericksburg Plankroad intersects it about fourteen miles due east of Orange C. H., and about ten or twelve miles west of Chancellorsville.]
Affairs on the Rapidan. Orange C. H., Nov. 30. --There was some skirmishing yesterday, and heavy cannonading for three hours this morning, and pretty heavy skirmishing during the day.--Beyond this, there is nothing definite. One hundred and twenty prisoners passed here en route for Richmond this evening. Gen. Wickham, of the cavalry, who has been for some time disabled by a fall from his horse, returned to duty to-day.
From east Tennessee. Bristol, Nov. 30. --The latest advices from Knoxville are up to Wednesday evening.--They state that Longstreet was shelling the place furiously. All the machine shops at the depot have been destroyed by the enemy, and all the non-combatants had left the city. The advices state that the enemy are on short rations. The weather is very cold., and the mountains covered with snow.
