In Their Own Words

December 02, 1864

Small Skirmish Recorded

Confederate scout Enoch John, who was pursuing Sherman’s army, wrote in his diary:

“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.”
