ly 25th, showed the activity on the other hand of the loyal Virginians. Lieutenant Miller, of the Ninth Virginia (U. S. A.), reported that he was awakened by a shot, and saw the street full of rebel cavalry, dressed in gray uniforms, yelling at the top of their voices. He went out of the back window and into the woods, and found on his subsequent return that all his comrades had been gobbled except those who were as lucky as himself. In Wyoming county, near where Floyd was stationed, in Tazewell, a daring cavalry raid was made by Captains Straton and Witcher, joining the companies of Chambers and Beckley at Horse Pen, and several skirmishes were fought, in which brave men fell, Straton and Witcher both being reported dangerously wounded. Early in August, General Cox was still at Flat Top mountain and Brook at Meadow Bluff, on opposite sides of the junction of the New and Greenbrier, before which lay Colonel Hayes near Pack's ferry, maintaining the communications of the two comma
lle, Va., July 13th, through Boone, Wyoming and McDowell counties, with instructions to destroy the railroad. On the 17th the expedition surprised Camp Pendleton in Abb's valley, Tazewell county, capturing J. E. Stollings' company and some stores, but allowing one man to escape, who carried the news to Williams. At the same time McCausland was pressed back from the vicinity of Raleigh by General Scammon, and retreated to Mercer Court House, when, learning that Toland had gone down through Tazewell, he sent his cavalry to follow and moved his infantry to Bland Court House. As Toland approached Wytheville, Major May, from Williams' command, attacked his rear, inflicting severe punishment and recapturing Stollings' company. Gen. Sam Jones had had time to throw two companies into Wytheville, under Maj. T. M. Bowyer. A gallant fight was made against the Federals as they entered the town by Lieutenant Bozang and his company, but he was wounded and captured with his men, and the remaind
tores and seizing over $5,000 from the Exchange bank; destroyed stores at Janelew; at Buckhannon on the 28th captured the garrison, including Maj. T. F. Lang, and burned a very large quantity of quartermaster, commissary and medical stores, and about 1,000 stand of small-arms. Returning to Greenbrier county he brought out 400 horses and 200 cattle. His battalions were under the command of Captains McFarlane, P. J. and W. D. Thurmond. About the same time Maj. J. H. Nounnan was sent from Tazewell to the mouth of the Coal, but being unable to cross the river, he retired after securing a considerable amount of supplies from a store-boat. Near Winfield his men and a body of Federals collided in full speed, and the Confederates, with Nounnan, were worsted in the melee. But his expedition served a good purpose in drawing attention from Witcher. In the latter part of the same month, Witcher moved into the Mud river region, and rode through Teay's valley against a garrison at Winfield
irst colonel. The command left Camp Vance, in Buncombe county, October 28, 1861 , for Raleigh, and in the latter part of November was sent to the field in east Tennessee. There the regiment served mainly in garrison duty on the railroad until February, 1862, when it was concentrated at Cumberland gap, in the defense of which it took part until the evacuation in June. Under the command of General Stevenson, Colonel Vance and his regiment took part in the assault and defeat of the enemy at Tazewell in August, after which Colonel Vance, in command of his own and other regiments, held a position at Baptist gap until the Federals retreated, when the army under Kirby Smith advanced into Kentucky as far as Frankfort, thence returning through Cumberland gap in October, marching about 500 miles in forty days. At the battle of Murfreesboro, December 31st, after the death of the brigade commander Gen. J. E. Rains, who was shot through the heart as the brigade charged the enemy, Colonel Vance t
