not Johnston's division, which had gained the rear of the post, stood in their way, four miles from Winchester. By these the flying troops were stopped, scattered, and many were made prisoners. Lee reported that in this affair his troops captured more than 4,000 prisoners, 29 guns, 277 wagons, and 400 horses. These doubtless included 700 prisoners and 5 guns captured at Martinsburg by General Rodes. Most of those who escaped, crossed the Potomac at Hancock, and took refuge in Bedford County, Pennsylvania; and others fled to Harper's Ferry, where Milroy's wagon-train crossed the Potomac, and was conducted in safety to Harrisburg, by way of Hagerstown and Chambersburg. Milroy lost nearly all of his artillery and ammunition. Alarmed by the approach of the Confederates in such force, the garrison at Harper's Ferry, under General French, withdrew to Maryland Heights. The Shenandoah Valley was now clear of all obstacles to the march of the invading army. Hooker, in the mean time,
87th Pennsylvania, Col. Shawl, and the 15th Connecticut, Col. Ely, on another, did most of the fighting that was done on our side; the former acting as a rear-guard; but the business in hand was not a fight, but a race — and very properly so. Four miles from Winchester, a Rebel division barred the way; and here the fugitives were of course routed, and many of them captured. Most of those who escaped crossed the Potomac at Hancock, and did not stop running till they brought up in Bedford county, Pennsylvania; the residue headed for Harper's Ferry, and soon distanced their pursuers. Milroy says June 30. 5,000 of his men reported at the Ferry or at Bloody Run, Pa., and he hoped that 1,000 more would do so; which hope was of course a delusion. Lee says General Rhodes captured 700 prisoners and 5 guns at Martinsburg, and proceeds to enumerate more than 4,000 prisoners, 29 guns, 277 wagons, and 400 horses, as the fruits of these operations --probably including in those totals his Mart

Zeisberger, David 1721- Missionary; born in Zauchtenthal, Moravia, April 11, 1721; came to America in his youth, and joined his parents in Georgia, who had come before. He was one of the founders of Bethlehem, Pa., in 1740, and soon afterwards became a missionary among the Indians. During the operations of Pontiac he assisted the Christian Indians, as the converts were called, and finally led them to Wyalusing, Bedford co., Pa. In 1772 he founded a Christian Indian settlement on the Tuscarawas, Ohio, where he was joined by all the Moravian Indians in Pennsylvania. That settlement was destroyed in 1781. He founded another settlement in Huron county, near Lake Erie (1787), and on the Thames, in Canada. In 1798 the Moravians returned to their former settlements in Ohio, where grants had been made them by Congress, and established a new station, which they called Goshen, and there Zeisberger preached till his death, Nov. 17, 1808. He left in manuscript a Delaware grammar and dic

With this gallant command he served until the close of the war, participating in a considerable number of battles, prominent among which were Pocotaligo, Second Cold Harbor, Hawe's Shop, Trevilian Station, Burgess' Mill, Belfield, and Bentonville, and finally was surrendered at Greensboro. At Trevilian he was captured with a number of his comrades, but was soon retaken by Hampton's command. For ten years after 1865 he was superintendent of the Riddlesburg coal and iron company of Bedford county, Pa., and then made his home at Greenville, S. C., where he is now an active business man and leading citizen. From 1894 to 1898 he served as deputy collector of internal revenue. He is a member of R. C. Pulliam camp, U. C. V.
