M. McCausland. This company and the Churchville cavalry constituted McCausland's extreme rear-guard from Covington to Buchanan, while McCausland was in front of Hunter and Crook, delaying their advance on Lynchburg, Va. Every foot of ground was contested, and every possible hindrance imposed in the enemy's advance. We made chart Buchanan, so closely was the rear guard pursued that some of it could not cross the bridge over James river before we set it afire, and had to swim the river.
