"These companies were chiefly employed during the battle of Bull Run as supports to batteries of artillery. Those with General Hunter's division crossed Bull Run at one of the upper fords and assisted in turning the enemy's left flank, which at half-past three o'clock p.m. had been forced back until the National troops had pocession of the Warrenton Pike leading from the stone bridge."

"He reported to the adjutant-general of the army on 20th of July, and was selected by General Scott as a bearer of dispatches to General McDowell.
