Plucky Running Fight Put Up by th*
Bear Guard of Gregg's Division
at Dinwiddle C. H.
I first enlisted In Company D,
Eighth Pennsylvania, for three years.
We were with the Army of the Poto
mac in all i'-fi battles (except Chancel
lorsville and Gettysburg) to the Wil
derness and Spotsylvania, writes
James Hasson of Perryopolis, Pa., in
the National Tribune. Our time hav
ing expired, we marched out of line,
and wern discharged in June, 1864. I
then enlisted in Company G, Sixteenth
Pennsylvania cavalry, for one year.
I was in Gregg's division, second
brigade, and it was while with that
command I had a close call in the fall
of 1864. The cavalry was on the ex
treme left of the army at Petersburg.
Early one morning we started out on
a raid around the right of Lee's army.
The Sixteenth Pennsylvania cavalry
was in advance, and as there is always
an advance guard in front of the mov
ing column that duty fell to four men
of my company, Henry Niel, William
Hagan and, if I remember, Joe Neil
and myself.
Nothing very exciting happened on
our outward move. We reached Din
widdle C. H. some time in the after
noon. We then wheeled to the rights
and moved up until we were in sight
of the enemy's camps. We then
wheeled right-about and started on
our return.
Fitzhugh Lee was in command of
Lee's cavalry, which consisted of
seven brigades, and we knew he would
follow us.
The guard had gotten a canteen full
of apple jack, and they began to get
pretty talkative. When the column
started to move the rear guard stopped
In the road and passed the canteen
arou d. As I had not tampered with
the contents of the canteen, I got hold
of it and threw It over my shoulder.
I told the boys they had had enough
for the present. I also remarked that
we were two miles In rear of the col
umn, and that Fitehugh Lee's cavalry
would Jump onto us and give us a trip
to Libbey prison If we didn't look,
We then started to move. Hagan

way to the house when we heard a

about fifty rebels coming out of a strip,

rear of us.

didn't count the fences we went over
but there were several of them. Th*
cavalry horses were trained to Jump
and they went over like sheep. Tha
Confederate cavalry horses being
fresh from camp, gained on us very
rapidly, and were soon riding along
not more than 50 yards to the left ol
us. Both parties were firing, but as
the horses were running at full speed

paptain as I took my position in the

eye when I answered him. Hagan got
back all right in about three or four
jmonths. Our brigade arrived at thai
junction two hours before Lee, and he
had his wagon train In front of him.
We kept the train moving until!
