21, 1861. General Stone's report. Headquarters Corps of observation, October 28, 1861. General: On the 20th inst., being advised from Headquarters of Gen. McCall's movements to Drainesville to reconnoitre and draw out the intentions of the enemy at Leesburg, I went to Edwards' Ferry, at one o'clock P. M., with Gen. Gormaas sent to Conrad's Ferry. A section of Bunting's New York battery and Rickett's battery was already on duty, respectively at Edwards' and Conrad's Ferries. Gen. McCall's movements had evidently attracted the attention of the enemy, a regiment of infantry having appeared from the direction of Leesburg, and taken shelter behind eady to march. I directed him to Harrison's Island to assume command, and in full conversation explained to him the position as it then stood. I told him that Gen. McCall had advanced his troops to Drainesville, and that I was extremely desirous of ascertaining the exact position and force of the enemy in our front, and exploring
ne playing on my intrenchment, (known as Fort Evans,) one on the Leesburg turnpike, and one on Edwards' Ferry. Heavy firing was also heard in the direction of Dranesville. At twelve o'clock at night I ordered my entire brigade to the burnt bridge on the turnpike. The enemy had been reported as approaching from Dranesville in large force. Taking a strong position on the north side of Goose Creek, I awaited his approach. Reconnoitring the turnpike on Sunday morning, the courier of General McCall was captured, bearing despatches to General Meade to examine the roads leading to Leesburg. From this prisoner I learned the position of the enemy near Dranesville. During Sunday, the enemy kept up a deliberate fire, without any effect. Early on Monday morning, the 21st instant, I heard the firing of my pickets at Big Spring, who had discovered that, at an unguarded point, the enemy had effected a crossing, in force of five companies, and was advancing on Leesburg. Captain Duff, of
in reply, of same date. My despatch did not contemplate the making an attack upon the enemy, or the crossing of the river in force by any portion of Gen. Stone's command; and not anticipating such movement, I had upon the 20th directed Major-General McCall to return with his division, on the forenoon of the 21st, from Dranesville to the camp from which he had advanced, provided the reconnoissance intrusted to him should have been then completed. Being advised by telegraph from Gen. Stone,y respectfully, your obedient servant, George B. Mcclellan, Major-General Commanding United States Army. Despatch no. 1, received October 20, 1861. To Brigadier-General Stone, Poolesville: General McClellan desires me to inform you that Gen. McCall occupied Dranesville yesterday, and is still there. Will send out heavy reconnoissances to-day in all directions from that point. The General desires that you keep a good look-out upon Leesburg to see if this movement has the effect to drive
