The Daily Dispatch: November 14, 1863., [Electronic resource], Averill's movements — the enemy believed to be Advancing on Staunton. (search)
en-Echols and Col. Wm. L. Jackson, who had formed a junction at a point known as Droop Mountain, some 25 miles Northwest of Lewisburg. On the route Gen. L. was reinforced by the Home Guards of Rockbridge and the cadets of the Virginia Military Institute. The enemy having defeated Jackson and Echols, turned in the direction of Covington, about two miles from which point they were met by Imboden's forces. Fire was immediately opened upon the enemy's advance, which caused him to retire. Imboden's force being too small to justify a pursuit, he fell back, blockading the road, to Buffalo Gap, in Augusta county. The enemy are reported to have since made their appearance at Hightown, in Highland county, fifty miles west of Staunton. A letter received from Staunton yesterday states that the Yankees took possession of Woodstock, Shenandoah county, on Tuesday last. Whether they continue to occupy it out information does not state, though they occupied the town at last accounts.
