The Daily Dispatch: September 2, 1863., [Electronic resource], The capture of gunboats on the Rappahannock. (search)
orn out by hard marching and severe labor, it was necessary to give the men a day of rest, and it was not until the 19th that we reached the Rappahannock. The boats were again launched in Meachum's Creek, just inside of Gray's Point, and about ten miles from the Chesapeake. Just at the mouth of the river is a small bay or cove, called Butler's Hole, in which the blockaders usually run at night for a safe anchorage.--The river is some three or four miles wide.

Wood sent up a signal light; but it was not answered, and we ran safely inside. Monday, August 24, 1863. In the gray of the morning we ran some five miles up the river, and came to anchor near Gray's Point. Being out all night, as well as the two nights previous, everybody was much exhausted, and, as soon as the anchor dropped over the side, nearly all dropped to sleep upon the
