The Daily Dispatch: June 20, 1862., [Electronic resource], Northern papers. (search)
Northern papers. From an officer in Gen. Kershaw's Brigade we have received a copy of the New York Herald, dated June 16th. We are deeply indebted to this courteous officer. whoever he may be, and hope that he will again remember us in a similar manner. We hear that nearly every day Northern papers are obtained by some of the regiments along the Chickahominy, and that they are often thrown about the camp and finally destroyed. Our army friends could not confer a greater favor upon this office than by sending us such late papers as they may receive. Even old papers are oftentimes of values for they may contain items of great interest to some of our many readers.
The Daily Dispatch: June 20, 1862., [Electronic resource], A skirmish. (search)
A skirmish. On Wednesday Kershaw's South Carolina brigade was ordered forward by Gen. McLaws to "feel" the enemy on the Nine-Mile Road. They started forward, skirmishers being thrown out by the 2d and 3d South Carolina regiments. They had gone but a short distance into the woods when a brisk fire commenced along the lines. Upon our steady advance the enemy was driven back, and our men then pressed forward and took possession of their camps bringing off overcoats, rubber-cloths, and several fine Enfield rifles. After pressing the Yankees back upon their main body, a fire was opened upon them with artillery, and our skirmishers were ordered to retire. Some seven or eight of the South Carolinas were wounded, among them Capt. Cuthbert, of the 2d, severely in the arm, and Capt. Walker, of the 3d, severely in the shoulder. This skirmish is spoken of as a creditable affair for those engaged.
