CAMP DETACHMENT FOURTH WISCONSIN BATTERY,
Near Light-House Point, August 9, 1864.
CAPTAIN: I have the honor to report that on the evening of July 30, 1864, I left camp near Jones’ Landing with one section of the battery, accompanying the cavalry expedition under General Kautz. We marched all night, arriving at the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad about 4 a.m. July 31. Remained there two hours, then crossed the railroad and proceeded to Lee’s Mill, where I placed my two guns in position, but did not fire any. On the morning of August 1 received orders to move with the cavalry which returned to near Light-House Point, where we went into camp and remained until joined by the center section under your command.
