The Lynchburg Virginian
states that a force of about 1,200 Yankee cavalry made a dash into Leesburg
on Wednesday last.
The Confederate infantry (a small force) fired a few rounds, when the Yankees
wheeled about and retired to await the arrival of their artillery.
The artillery arrived, they commenced shelling the town, injuring 19 houses, and wounding a lady named Harding
Meanwhile our forces had fallen back on the road to Winchester
thus drawing the enemy after them.
Our cavalry, pursued, fired upon them, killing two and wounding nine Yankees.
The latter returned to the town, where they stayed about two hours, and left in great haste, without paroling any of the sick that were in the hospital.
The enemy departed in the direction of Drainsville, when our forces occupied the town, and hold it still.
