my force is across the river. Baker on the right, Gorman on the left. Right sharply engaged. C. P. Stone, Brig-Gen. To Gen. McClellan. Edward's Ferry, Oct. 21, 1861, 6 P. M. Have called on Banks for a brigade, and he has ordered up Hamilton's. I think it would be well to send up a division on the other side of the river. I think they have been reinforced. C. P. Stone, Brig.--Gen. The nearest division on the Virginia side (McCall's) was more than twenty miles from the scene ofM. To Gen. McClellan: Arrived here at nine and a half o'clock. Gen. Stone telegraphs for whole division immediately. Col. Baker is killed, and some trouble exists on his right. We go at once. N. P. Banks, Maj.-Gen. Commanding Division. Hamilton's brigade arrived at midnight, and Gen. Banks with the remainder of his division reached Edward's Ferry at three A. M. of the 22d. He found Gen. Stone on the Maryland side, and reported that he ascertained that at no time had more than one-thir
therefore The following memoranda were found lying with the manuscript at this point: memoranda.--On the 5th of March there were no transports of importance at Annapolis, some at Perryville and Washington, and many engaged and fitting up in New York. On March 12 there were at Alexandria transports for 15,000 infantry and one squadron, but they were not coaled or ready to receive the troops. The pontoon trains and engineers' tools were loaded up. March 17 the leading division — Hamilton's — embarked. March 20 there were eight to ten horse-transports at the wharves of Alexandria and as many more at anchor. Artillery — transports ready at the wharves. March 21--Porter's artillery in Alexandria, but no sufficient accommodation for the horses and no arrangement of vessels for infantry and artillery. March 22--Porter's division moved off in splendid style and well provided; reached Fortress Monroe on the 23d. March 23--Only 150 horses fit for artillery in Alexandri<
, in consequence of an order being given, without my knowledge, for the steamers to come to Alexandria without them. The first division which had embarked was Hamilton's, formerly Heintzelman's, of the 3d corps, which sailed on the 17th of March; it was followed by Gen. F. J. Porter's division of the same corps on the 22d of Maep wet ditches; they had platforms and magazine for siege-guns, all the guns withdrawn; there were excellent quarters for three regiments of ten companies each. Hamilton's division encamped about two miles in rear of Howard's creek. The reserve cavalry, artillery, and infantry bivouacked with headquarters at Big Bethel. Gen. Heabout two and three-quarter miles from Yorktown, there to halt and send out reconnoitring parties, to cover the reconnoissances of the engineer officers, etc. Hamilton's division to move at the same hour and close up on Porter. Sedgwick, temporarily attached to headquarters, to move with the reserves to Dr. Pavis's house, wher
es unfordable, and has generally a very marshy valley. His batteries and entrenchments render this line an exceedingly formidable one, entirely too much so (so far as I now understand it) to be carried by a simple assault. I shall employ to-morrow in reconnoissances, repairing roads, establishing a depot at Ship's Point, and in bringing up supplies. Porter, the head of the right column, has moved as close upon the town as the enemy's guns will permit; he is encamped there, supported by Hamilton's division. Porter has been under fire all the afternoon. But five men killed. His rifled field-guns and sharpshooters have caused some loss to the enemy. Keyes, with two divisions, is in front of Lee's Mill, where the road from Newport News to Williamsburg crosses Warwick river. He has been engaged in an artillery combat of several hours' duration, losing some five killed. At Lee's Mill we have a causeway covered by formidable batteries.
