OCTOBER 15, 1863. – Affair near Hedgesville, W.Va.
Report of Brig. Gen. Jeremiah C. Sullivan, U. S. Army.
October 15, 1863.
SIR: This morning a portion of Colonel Pierce’s command met a squad of 37 men, belonging to Gilmor’s battalion, who intended burning Back Creek Bridge. They captured the whole party without the loss of a man. I think I can make the cavalry of this command effective.
