2 ‘1st of April, early in the morning, while still in camp near the White Oak road, it was announced to me by the major-general commanding [Warren] he was about to move, with his entire command, Towards Dinwiddie court-house, to operate in connection with the cavalry, then in the neighborhood of a place called Five Forks. My division was the last to retire. . . .. We marched in retreat in a southwest direction until we approached a road leading south to Boisseau's cross-roads, and followed the other two divisions. The enemy did not follow us from his entrenchments upon the withdrawal of our skirmish line, as was expected.’—Crawford's Report.
