I suspect with no hearty desire to meet up with them, for he could but know that our force was not able to cope successfully with a full regiment.
Upon reaching Jackson, we learned there that the regiment was the Third New York Cavalry, about six hundred strong, well mounted and thoroughly equipped with Spencer repeating carbines, and had passed through that town some hours before, and then must be near Murfreesboro, some twenty-five miles distant. After waiting several hours at Jackson, our guns were ordered back overland to Weldon, while the infantry, under Colonel Whitford's command, retired to Halifax.
I shall always remember with pleasure one little followed the tattered battle-flags of Lee and of Jackson—rising from simple captain, grade by grade, through sheer force of skill and daring until as commander of Jackson's old corps he became Lee's right arm in that wondrous final campaign which has claimed the admiration of the brave of every nation.
