Orange Court House (Virginia, United States) (search for this): article 1
Skirmish at Orange Court-House. On Saturday morning last a portion of the 7th Virginia Cavalry, Robertson's brigade, under Col. W. E. Jones, engaged the 1st Michigan, 5th New York, and 1st Vermont Cavalry, at Orange Court- House. Our men fought with desperation, not having more than 100 at any one time in the fight, while the enemy's force was between 1,200 and 1,500. Ten of the enemy, inc, and eleven horses were killed, the dead bodies of the lather remaining in the streets of Orange Court-House after the fight was over. Four carriages were pressed by the Yankees to carry off their w made with a design to destroy a train of cars which had been running from Gordonsville to Orange Court-House, but in this they met with a signal failure. We understand that our pickets were driven i that our men were forced to retire before over whelming numbers, and that the enemy took possession of Orange Court-House. The impression prevails that a general engagement cannot be long delayed.

to carry off their wounded. Several prisoners were captured, six of whom (Sergeant J. S. Trowbridge and two privates of the 5th New York, and two privates of the 1st Vermont,) were brought to Richmond by the Central train last evening and committed to the Military Prison. Some few of our men were captured in the skirmish, but none killed. Major Berry, of the 4th Georgia battalion, who was near the scene of action informs us that the enemy retreated by way of Terrill's Ford across the Rapidan river. Our troops occupied the town on Saturday night. Conflicting reports of this affair were in circulation yesterday, but the foregoing statement is derived from a source entitled to full confidence, and may be relied on as correct. It has been conjectured that this advance of the enemy's cavalry was made with a design to destroy a train of cars which had been running from Gordonsville to Orange Court-House, but in this they met with a signal failure.
