Frank Moore, ed. Vol. 3. New York: G. P. Putnam, 1862
The secessionists encamped at Worthington, in Marion County, Va., four hundred in number, were attacked by Col. Crosman, of General Kelley’s staff, with two companies of United States troops, a little after daylight this morning; but the secessionists were too strong for him, and he was obliged to fall back with a loss of two men. – Philadelphia Inquirer, September 3.
