The New York Times Reports the Battle of Washington, NC-- Part 2

Another Account of the Battle.

Fortress Monroe, Wednesday, Sept. 10, 1862

The attack came at daybreak.  "The First Regiment of North Carolina Union Volunteers, under Col. Potter. fought with the greatest bravery and most determined heroism.  Col. Potter had a horse shot under him.

Companies B and D, of the Twenty-fourth Massachusetts Regiment, were in the action.  None were killed.  Several, however, were wounded.

Our force engaged was only five hundred.  In addition to our killed and wounded, we have four men missing.

A large number of rebels were wounded.
