5th Cavalry at Hanover Court House – May 28th

The day after the battle, Captain James E. Harrison’s squadron (Companies B and E) continued to round up prisoners from the battle. Accompanied by Brigadier General Emory’s aide de camp, Lieutenant Elbert, Harrison brought in two entire companies of the 28th North Carolina Infantry with their arms and ammunition. In his report, Harrison claims a total of 99 prisoners, including two captains, a lieutenant and 96 privates.

Given this similarity to yesterday’s post, I had to go back to the OR and verify the numbers and that they were actually from different squadrons on different days.
