's expedition to the Gen. Jones Northwest. (search)
Gen. Jones's expedition to the Northwest. Mention has already been made of the movements of the forces of Brig.-Gen. Jones, in command of our cavalry in the Valley of Virginia. The command left Harrisonburg on the 21st of April, and proceeded to Greenland, in Hardy county, where they effected the capture of about ninety Yankees. At this point the command was divided Col. A. W Harman, with the 12th Virginia regiment and the Maryland battalion, moving in the direction of Oakland, on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, and Gen'l Jones to Chest river tunnel and Rowlesburg, where he inflicted some injury upon the road, but did not succeed in destroying the immense trestle work on Cheat river At Oakland, Col.

Prison Record. --At the Libby Prison yesterday there were thirty-seven Yankees received from Gordonsville, who were captured by Mosby's command at Fairfax Court House on the 5th day of the present month.

The Daily Dispatch: August 13, 1863., [Electronic resource], Reported fighting at
Brock's Gap. (search)
Reported fighting at Brock's Gap. Yesterday evening a report was brought down by passengers from Staunton that the enemy have made two attempts to pass through Brock's Gap, which is a passage in the North Mountain, in Rockingham county, about twelve miles north of Harrisonburg. On Monday they made their appearance at the gap, but were easily and soon driven off by a portion of Gen. Imboden's forces. On Tuesday they renewed their attempt to force their way through the mountain pass, and this time in greater force; but they were a second time repulsed, with considerable loss. This force of Yankees is believed to be under command of Gen. Kelly, and that they have marched down through Hardy county from the neighborhood of New Creek and Cumberland. They are doubtless summing to reach Staunton.
The Daily Dispatch: August 17, 1863., [Electronic resource], From the
From the Valley. From various sources of information we are assured that the Valley country is now unoccupied by the Yankees, and that the people once more breathe the air of freedom. The only Federal force we hear of is a report that they have a small body at Martinsburg, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, which road perhaps the Government is rebuilding. One statement represents that our forces extend as low down as Shepherdstown, but this we are satisfied is unfounded. A Yankee force of infantry and cavalry, estimated at from two to three thousand, is on the South Branch, in Hardy county, and a short time since they were pressing horses, from which the inference is drawn that they contemplate a raid. The crops of corn and grass in the Valley are said to be excellent, scarcely ever surpassed in that productive region.
