Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 16. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Account of the skirmish at Swift Creek. (search)
Swift Creek. By Lieutenant-Colonel George C. Cabell, Eighteenth Virginia Infantry. About the 9th of May, 1864, the Eighteenth Virginia, temporarily attached to Corse's brigade, was ordered from Kinston, North Carolina, to Petersburg. On the 10th, we reached Stony Creek late at night and left the train at that point, finding thsom's (Matt.) brigade. About 11 o'clock on this day, Ransom's brigade was outflanked and driven from their position. This necessitated a change in our position. Corse was moved to the right to aid Ransom. After some fighting Ransom got again into line some distance in rear of his former line. Corse moved again to his left and Corse moved again to his left and had heavy skirmishing the entire evening. On the night of the 14th, we retired to our inner lines of fortifications. All day of the 15th, in front of and around our lines, the skirmishing was very heavy and the artillery practice most severe. I lost a number of my men on each of the days, viz: 13th, 14th and 15th.

Jones's division (I think it was) was driven from Sharpsburg. The plan was conceived by Toombs, acting on his own views in the manner aforesaid with the troops aforesaid. See report of Colonel Corse of Seventeenth Virginia of his capture and recapture. Troup, his aid, he sent to General Lee for artillery. Troup found Lee just after Jones had found him and had reported to him the loss of Sharpsburg. Troup said to General Lee that if General Toombs had some artillery he thought he could drive them back quite across the creek. What! said General Jones, haven't the enemy got Sharpsburg? No, said Troup, they had it, but have been driven out, and we have it. Then General Lee said, te
