The Daily Dispatch: July 5, 1862., [Electronic resource], The capture of the battery at Ellyson's Mills. (search)
when ordered to do so, the strength of the enemy's works rendering its capture almost impossible. The truth is, no regiment or brigade can claim to have taken that battery, it was abandoned by the enemy during the night in pursuance of their plan of retreat, and fearing a flank movement next morning. The courage and obstinacy with which that charge was made, may be inferred from the fact that the 1st North Carolina regiment lost nearly one-half of its effective force, and the 44th Georgia nearly two-thirds. The following is a list of casualties among the 1st N. C. regiment's officers: Killed: Maj. T L Skinner, Capt Jas A Wright, Lt. Grandie. Wounded: Col M. S Stokes, leg broken, Lt. Col McDowell, in side; Capt Reeves, mortally, (since dead;) Lt Stokes, severely, Lt Moore, slightly, Lt H Fennell, slightly; Lt Carr, Lt Lyon, in knee. The loss of officers in the 44th Georgia I am unable to furnish you. No troops could have behaved better than they did. Justice.
The Valley. At last dates from the North, Lincoln appeared to be making energetic preparations for another invaden of the Valley. He had appointed Major General Pops to command the three divisions of Fremont, Banks, and McDowell. What effect the Fate of McClellen's army may have upon these plans, it is impossible to say. If they are not chenged, however, the Valley will likely on the next great battle-ground in Virginia. Our army will be ready for the campaign there. We have a plenty of reserves here and in the Valley to meet the Yankees, and defeat them too.
