Through the gap thus made by the dismantling of the fence some of the enemy's cavalry had ridden at the first attack. One man, wounded by our fire, was unable to control his horse, which sprang forward over the ditch into our midst. Lieutenant George V. Scott ordered him, with vehement language, several times to stop and surrender, which the poor fellow, who was shot through both arms, was too helpless to (who. At length lie was brought to. Doubtless this was the dark horse which Wales Hurtd I was the only man who had fallen into the hands of the Philistines, but was speedily deceived. I was marched down to the low ground that lay between our camp and the breastworks and there found quite a number of our men, some wounded, Lieutenant G. V.

Early became famous in conflicts with the Indians. General Scott, in published orders, says: Major Van Dorn notices the conspicuous gallantry and energy of Second Lieutenant-Fitzhugh Lee, adjutant of the expedition, who was dangerously wounded.

The first was from Monticello: The enemy are on this side of the river, and pressing hard upon me—three regiments of infantry and one of cavalry.

The second dispatch was from twelve miles from Monticello, on Jimtown Road—Sundown, and was as follows: I hasten to inform you that the enemy have driven me to this point. Early this morning Colonel Morrison moved up from Albany to my relief, with Pegram's Brigade. They ambushed him, and have taken all his artillery except the two bull pups I had with me. His forces are much demoralized. I shall move with all dispatch to Livingston. On May 2 he was in camp near th
