Rangers Did Little Damage on March to the Sea
The small group of Texas Rangers continued following the Union army, and doing what little damage they could.
“Dec. 2d. Out early, crossed Buckhead Creek, and found a large body of cavalry near the mill that was burned yesterday. We took the backtrack, crossing a field and met a squad of ten Yankees coming in our rear. We charged killing two of them; crossed the creek again; then crossed the Augusta and Savannah Railroad, and camped.”
