The Daily Dispatch: July 7, 1863., [Electronic resource], The Yankee movement around Richmond. (search)
The Yankee movement around Richmond. By the train on the York River road yesterday we learn that a large number of Yankees were at Barhamsville and Talleysville, New Kent, and it was generally believed that Dix's army was on its retreat down the Peninsula. They had picketed very strongly from Tunstall's across to the Pamunkey river, to prevent, it is supposed, our discovery of their having evacuated the White House. The movements of the enemy in the direction of Hanover, since their signal repulse at South Anna bridge on Saturday night, indicate that they have given up the idea of further offensve operations against Richmond from that quarter. General Cook, who commanded at the bridge, informs the Government that the assault on Saturday night was made by three brigades, and after a sharp engagement they were repulsed, and finally driven off. His information in reference to their subsequent movements corresponds with that published by us yesterday, that they're crossed the
oys not more than twelve years of age drilling in the streets. It is certain that none of Braggs forces have reached Richmond, nor that that city has been reinforced otherwise; it is the opinion that it could now be easily taken. The movement on Richmond. The New York Herald contains a number of letters from the Peninsula, giving an account of Dix's movement on Richmond. Col. Spears's "brilliant movement" was made by 1,200 cavalrymen, and left West Point on the 25th. They went to Tunstall's, and thence to Hanover bridge. At the South Anna bridge they found a company of the 44th N. C. troops, who were well posted, and "to the last brave and unyielding until overpowered." They captured Gen. W. H. F. Lee. Of the raid Gen. Dix telegraphed to Washington that "private property was respected, and nothing touched but Government property"--(a most astounding Yankee lie) Gen. Lee asked to be sent to Baltimore, but the request was denied. Militia called out in Washington. Li
