Seeing himself almost surrounded by the Yankee cavalry, he fell back to Berea camp, where was Col. Lee with a part of four companies of cavalry, numbering in the aggregate 260 men, about one-half of whom were raw recruits and badly armed. Col. Lee then fell back to within one mile-of-Falmouth. It then being after dark, the men picketed their horses and rested. Col. Lee sent to Fredericksburg and got four companies of Col. Brockenbrough's regiment, who joined us about 10 P. M. He then, after posting a few pickets, sent scouting parties to Berea, who reported the enemy there; so, about 12 o'clock P. M., Col Lee had the fences on the road in rear of us pulled down and made rail pens across the road in front of us. He then placed two companies of infantry on either side of the road, commanding a crossfire on the

He then placed two companies of infantry on either side of the road, commanding a crossfire on the approaching road, and a company of cavalry immediately in rear of them, and threw out one company to the right and one to the left, some half mile, to deploy as skirmishers. We occupied that position some hour or two, when, a litte after 3 o'clock A. M., of the 18th, Lieut Lawson, of the Stafford cavalry, who was on picket, rode in under full speed and told Col. Lee that the enemy were upon us. Col. Lee very calmly replied, "We are ready." The feet of the enemy's horse could be heard under full charge, about 300 yards distant. Col. Lee rode up and down the lines very cool, and told the men to be steady and quiet. The words "Steady, men!" "Steady, men!" fell in soft and musical tones from the noble Col.

It was then daybreak, and we marched back to the battle ground. I was one of ten who went to the ground first, when I counted six dead men and nine dead horses lying in and near the road. Others went further, and saw in all eleven dead men and thirteen dead horses. We got eleven saddles, a number of Sharp's carbines, Colt's pistols, and other articles. A man whom we took, mortally wounded, told Col. Lee that they had a full regiment of cavalry, besides infantry and artillery in quite large force; and that they made the rush on us in order to save the bridges on the Rappahannock.
