“The Federal troops under Generals Brannan and Terry driving the Confederates under beauregard across the Pocotaligo bridge, near the Charleston and Savannah Railroad, October 22nd. Our correspondent thus describes the fight: ‘This action began between twelve and one o’clock, and lasted about an hour, ending in the retreat of the Confederates to another position at Frampton’s Plantation, which lies two miles beyond. The enemy was closely followed, and after a hotly contested fight the Confederates were driven from their well-chosen position, and two miles beyond, which brought them up to Pocotaligo Bridge, over which they crossed, taking shelter behind earthworks on the farthest side. To this point our troops nearly approached, but found further progress impossible, as the bridge had been out by the enemy on his retreat. Our loss was: Killed, 15; wounded, 106; missing, 2; total, 123.’"— Frank Leslie, 1896
