wounds were slight, but some were pronounced fatal, and one man died while I was present.
As before stated, a force of four hundred men had been sent from Elizabeth City, under command of Colonel Draper, of the Second North-Carolina, to scour the lower districts of Camden County for contrabands, with orders to unite with the main column at Indiantown.
The region was found to abound with fine plantations, and the result of the first day's canvass was twenty teams.
Encamping that night at Shiloh — a village of about twenty houses and a church — fires were built at a cross-roads near the church, while the men were quartered in the church, and pickets posted on all the approaches.
About midnight the pickets were driven in by a force of guerrillas, supposed to number about one hundred men, who discharged their rifles at the camp fires, where they supposed the men to be sleeping.
This was what Colonel Draper had anticipated, and thanks to his shrewdness, not the least harm was done.
