The Daily Dispatch: August 1, 1863., [Electronic resource], Repulse of the Yankees in North Carolina. (search)
C. T. Goldsboro', July 29. --Gov. Vance--A dispatch which has passed this office to headquarters at Kinston states that our forces met the enemy twelve miles below Fort Branch on yesterday, and after a fight of four hours repulsed them. No particulars are given. (Signed,) Jas A Bradford. [Fort Branch is at Rainbow Bend, on the north side of Roanoke river, near Hamilton. This makes it certain that the advance on Weldon is being made by two columns] Kinston, July 29. --Gov. Vance:--The Yankees were repulsed below Williamston and returned to Plymouth. They were also repulsed below Weldon and retreated, how far I do not know. J. G. Martin, Brigadier General. The bridge over Tar river, on the Wilmington and Weldon railroad, burnt by the Yankees, has been rebuilt, and the trains are passing over it. Freight is being sent and received over the road as usual. Passengers by the Petersburg train yesterday evening report all quiet at Weldon.
