o that section at any time. I had left Grafton but a day or so before that place was occupied by several thousand United States troops, and in about a week after my arrival at Philippi my command there was surprised at 4 A. M., June 3d. General Morris reported to General McClellan, June 7th, the capture at this place of a large amount of camp equipage, provisions, arms, wagons, horses and medical stores.

The expedition was to come in boats, with muffled oars, from the creek which separates Morris from James Island, and when the keels of the boats struck the beach, the men were to jump out and charge the battery. Captain Martin A. Sellers, with his Company (F), and Company E, under the command of Lieutenant A. J. Minis, with a detachment of fifty men from the Twenty-eighth Georgia, under the command of Captain Hayne, were detailed as reinforcements for Battery Gregg. The whole detachment was put under the command of Captain Sellers. Company B, of the Twenty-fifth South Carolina volu
