A Participant in the most brilliant battle fought by Mosby's command. From Richmond, Va., Times-dispatch August 1, 1909. Replying to Captain W. L. White's inquiry in regard to the late Joseph Bryan's service as a soldier in Mosby's command, Colonel Mosby writes as follows: Department of Justice, Washington, July 16, 1909. Mr. William L.

I do not remember the date when he joined me, but do know that in 1864 he was wounded in a fight near Upperville; that in 1864 he was detailed to watch in the Bull Run Mountain, when I was lying wounded in Fauquier, and that in February, 1865, he was in what I have always said was the most brilliant affair of my command, when Major Richards with thirty-seven men attacked and routed a Major Gibson with 150 men (Fourteenth Pennsylvania Cavalry), killing, wounding and capturing nearly the whole force. I was then absent wounded. Very truly, John S. Mosby

After the war, when I saw in a Washington newspaper a notice that Admiral Dahlgren had recovered the body of his son, and that there was an imposing funeral in Washington, I was greatly surprised, and expressing this in the presence of Patrick Gibson, who at one time was on the staff of the Richmond Examiner, he said he knew who had taken up the body of Dahlgren, and had been paid a handsome reward by his father for its delivery to him; that it was disinterred by Martin Meredith Lipscomb, who was at one time quite a well-known character in Richmond, and said to be during the war a Union man.
