command, and remarked to the captain that he had seemed to have arms but no ammunition, whereupon Captain Bulla ran his hands in both pockets of his pants, pulling out buckshot and powder-horns, and extending them to him, said: ‘Lieutenant DeLagnel, are these all the men you have to capture my battery and the arsenal?’ ‘No,’ said Captain B., ‘the woods is full of them.’ Lieutenant DeLagnel having satisfied himself that any effort on his part to resistance would be fruitless, not only on account of the number of Confederates opposing him, compared with his handful of men, coupled with Captain Bulla's announcement, that ‘the woods was full of them,’ the surrender was accomplished without the firing of a gun, except the salute by Lieutenant DeLagnel's battery on hauling down the United States Flag. Lieutenant DeLagnel, with his command, marched out of the enclosure with their small arms and equipments, and the State troops marched in and took possession. The State troops were kept on guard until the Confederate States' forces took charge.
