Adams Sentinel - July 5, 1864



A letter from Captain Mickley states that the last engagement the 21st Pa. Cavalry were in was on the 18th ult., when they were ordered in line of battle, and charged on the rebel works, on the railroad running from Petersburg to Suffolk. They made two charges. In the first they gained their point, but in the second were repulsed, and fell back about 25 yards. They remained under fire until the next morning, when they were relieved.

The following is given as the list of casualties in Company B:
Lieut. H.G. Lott, wounded in the head:;
Serg't Brenizer, in neck, seriously;
David Knouse, in hand;
Conrad Linn, in both legs;
William McClellan, finger shot off;
Noah Snyder, in leg slightly;
Lieut. Col. Mosson, in hand;
Major Gillis, in leg.

The loss in the regiment was about 100 wounded and 10 killed.

On Tuesday night a dispatch was received announcing the death of Lieut. Lott, at the Hospital, at Annapolis, from the effect of his wound. His body was brought here on Wednesday and interred in EverGreen Cemetery.
