The bridges over the James were destroyed, and Sheridan must either return to Withe Pamunkey river. He was anxious now about the crossing of the Pamunkey, which the enemy was sure to oppose with a heavy force. His scouts notified him that Pickett and Fitz Lee had returned from Lynchburg, and that Longstreet was preparing to move to prevent the passage of the river; but no advance had yet occurred. Sherida rebels could arrive. Custer and Devin accordingly proceeded by different roads towards Ashland, and Longstreet was found only four miles from that place, with Pickett and Johnson's infantry and Fitz Lee's cavalry. The feint had completely succeeded, and Sheridan's course was now entirely clear. One brigade was left to amuse t

The rebels pronounced this one of attempt to force the position was repelled. Pickett, with his entire command, was unable to drive men. See Lee's return of February 20th.

Pickett in the night had endeavored to gather up what he had savedox's divisions, and possibly a few to Anderson's command. Pickett, we have seen, had endeavored to reach Sutherland during t were already in motion to join him on the Appomattox; and Pickett and Bushrod Johnson were heading their scattered troops foighting beyond Petersburg, on the Southside road, in which Pickett's division was said to have met with fearful loss. Nothin

The rebel artilleristseek was reached, but Sheridan, the inevitable, Sheridan, the inevitable, was in front of us.—Pickett's Men, p.155. was in front with the cavalry, and three corps of the army of the Potomac were in, where the capitulation had been signed.

Grant attacked in return, with his fiery subordinate, and the defeat of Pickett was instantly followed by the assaults on Petersburg.

The enemy have gained some ground; but we still hold in front of Dinwiddie court-house, and Davies and Devin are coming down the Boydton plank-road to join us.
