Nothing that he had ever done had justified his nicknentreville or elsewhere. The details of what took place in the council, after Hill had told his story and been dismissed, indicate that the case was one where too it. Conversation began on whether pursuit at dawn would answer, and also as to Hill and his story.

J. R. Cooke, of the Carolina regiment, to fill this gap, and well did they carry out their instructions. General McLaws' division from Harper's Ferry entered coincidently with Walker at 10:30.
