From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/5/1862, p. 3, c. 2


An addition was made yesterday to the floating population of the city by the arrival of 250 "Federal soldiers, taken in one of the recent engagements below this city. While there were some very fine specimens of well developed manhood in this aggregate of human depravity, the majority were not calculated, from their appearance, to produce any favorable impressions. The following officers arrived at the same time; C. M. Hildebrand, 1st Lieut. co. G, 5th Pa.; W. J. Harrison, 1st Lieut. co. C, 7th N. J.; C. M. Angell, Captain co. E, 61st N. Y; Wm. C. Besseliever, Captain co. D, 4th Pennsylvania; Jas. M. Leonard, Aid-de-Camp to Gen. Birney; D. E. Gregory, 1st Lieut. and Adjutant 61st New York.
