Frank Moore, ed. Vol. 5. New York: G. P. Putnam, 1863.

Two infantry and one cavalry regiment, under command of Colonel Toland, of the Thirty-fourth Ohio regiment, made an ineffectual attempt to capture Jenkinsís rebel cavalry, in camp at Buffalo, on the Kanawha River, Va. His troops advanced in three directions from Point Pleasant. The center column surprised Jenkinsís cavalry, five hundred strong, before the other columns arrived, drove the rebels out of their camp, and captured and destroyed all their camp equipage, killing seven, and capturing nine. They pursued them about one and a half miles, when they were reinforced by two regiments of infantry and three pieces of artillery. The National force then fell back without the loss of a man.
