Craig's Hill (Washington, United States) (search for this): article 3
few days. The Yankees are bestowing more attention upon Fort Sumter. The fleet inside the bar has been increased to seven iron-clads, ten gunboats, and five mortar boats. There are thirteen blockaders outside, and about twenty river steamers, schooners, &c., in Folly Inlet. The fire from Fort Sumter Wednesday night, it is reported, had a most telling effect upon one of the Yankee batteries. A large portion of it is said to have been knocked away. Thursday morning matters remained tolerably quiet. Two wooden gunboats made their appearance and fired a few shots at Fort Sumter, taking care, however, to keep out of range of the fort. --About three o'clock in the afternoon four more wooden gunboats came up and took a position at long distances and opened on Sumter. The latter made little or no response, scarcely deeming them worthy of notice. In the evening the enemy's land battery at the foot of Craig's Hill renewed its fire on Fort Sumter, our batteries replying regularly.
