Williamston (North Carolina, United States) (search for this): article 2
Fight in North Carolina. An engagement occurred near Williamston, Martin county, N. C., on the afternoon of the 2d, between four companies of the 26th North Carolina regiment and a large force of Yankees, who had marched from the town of Washington to a point on the Roanoke river below Williamston, with a view of cutting off the 17th and 57th North Carolina regiments, stationed in that neighborhood. The four companies engaged were under command of Col. Burgwyn, and hold in check a largely superior force of the enemy during the day, and until the 17th and 57th regiments came up, when battle was offered, but declined by the enemy. Our loss is reported at two killed and thirty-one wounded, most of them only slightly. The enemy's loss is known to have been much greater, one entire cavalry company being out up and destroyed. This was the celebrated "White Horse" company, which has been a perfect terror to the people of Washington and surrounding country.
