Crossing the mountains, the brigade divided, our regiment (the 12th) and the Maryland battalion crossing the mountains in Allegheny county, Maryland. At Oakland we charged the town and caught seventy-five more Yankees, and burned the bridge. At Cranberry Summit, also on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, we caught about a dozen Yankees, and then marched to Cheat river Suspension Bridge, which we destroyed. We then passed on to Kingwood, Preston county, and Morgantown, Monongahela county. Gen'l Jones, with the advance of the brigade, attacked Chest river trestle work, but did not succeed in its destruction, on account of the superior force of the enemy guarding it. He then marched to Independence, on B. and O. R. R., captured 80 of the enemy, and burned the bridge there. We then formed a junction near Morgantown, and the command moved on to Fairmont. Here we had a little fight and captured 390 of the enemy. The "melish" of
