From the Richmond Dispatch, 1/30/1862, p. 2, c. 3
Col. George S. Patton, of the 22d Virginia Regiment, is now
in the city. He is a very gallant, as well as accomplished officer, and a native
of Richmond. He was severely wounded at the battle of Scarey Creek, ad has not
yet recovered fully. His regiment is from the Kanawha Valley. It is to be hoped
he will soon be able to take the field, and yet lead his brave men back to the
homes from which they are now driven.
