1 On the 27th, Lee sent the following despatch, which was withheld from print, and has not found its way into any rebel history: ‘General Hill reports that the enemy crossed Rowanty creek below Burgess's mill, and forced back the cavalry. In the afternoon General Heth attacked and at first drove them, but found them in too strong force. Afterwards the enemy attacked and were repulsed. They still hold the plank road at Burgess's mill. Heth took colors and some prisoners.’ The despatch given by McCabe and other rebel writers is not on file at Washington.
