Zzzthe monster cattle drive.

General Rosser without delay began to drive out the cattle, and General Hampton says: There were 2,486 head of them. “General Hampton says in his report to General Lee that he withdrew all of his forces before 8 A. M., and the different columns were united before reaching the Blackwater.”

That's all right in the abstract, but now comes the return, which General Lee said he feared more than anything else. Before we united at the Blackwater the command I belonged to moved on to Prince George Courthouse, and looked for the opposing troops. Some of the cavalry found the enemy, and, while others cut down trees on the edge of a piece of woods, tried to toll him up where he had our artillery posted with a dismounted support.
