Regardless of the numbers that might oppose them, our boys raised a yell and dashed off at full speed--Capt. Randolph, of company H, leading the column in the most gallant style. After a slight resistance, the enemy commenced a precipitate flight, when the remaining companies were ordered to charge. The work was short and quick — the whole party being baggarge, but night coming on they were prevented from following up the retreat to a very great distance. Their force is reported by citizens who saw them, at fifteen hundred cavalry and six pieces of artillery. Their loss in the skirmish beyond the town was one killed and six wounded. Our loss none.

Berry, of Sickles's corps, was on the north side of the turnpike, Birney south of it — both divisions advanced from the general line; Whipple, of Sickles's corps, was behind Berry, and Williams, of Slocum's corps, behind Birney. The other division of Slocum (Geary's) formed the southern half of the other leg, joining on Howard. The artillery under Best was massed to command the approaches by the turnpike. Randolph's, Seeley's, Smith's, Osband's, and two sections of Dimmick's batteries were placed in line, all pointing west, on the ridge in the centre of the fifty-acre lot. Birney and Berry were at the western edge of the lot, with two pieces of Dimmick's battery in the road. It was early Sunday morning when Jackson advanced — about half-past 5.
