Dear Sir:—Your letter of inquiry in reference to Joe Bryan just received.
I do not remember the date when he joined me, but do know that in 1864 he was wounded in a fight near Upperville; that in 1864 he was detailed to watch in the Bull Run Mountain, when I was lying wounded in Fauquier, and that in February, 1865, he was in what I have always said was the most brilliant affair of my command, when Major Richards with thirty-seven men attacked and routed a Major Gibson with 150 men (Fourteenth Pennsylvania Cavalry), killing, wounding and capturing nearly the whole force.
I was then absent wounded.
