When we were relieved and retired some three or four hundred yards and retired for the night. Early on the sixth, (the following morning) we were rushed upon by an overwhelming force and we were pressed back until General Longstreet's forces came to our assistance, we were then marched to the left and joined General Ewell's forces and remained in this position until General Grant flanked off to the left and having followed him parallely we then again met him again at Spottsylvania Courthouse, Virginina and having fought him for several successive days and punishing him severely he again flanked off to the left and having followed parallely we again met him at Hanover and fought them on May 23rd on the central railway and whipped them". Notes are signed by 1st. Lt. James N. Williamson, Company A 13 NC.
