From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/24/1862, p. 1, c. 7

Purcell Battery. This splendid artillery corps left its encampment at the Fair Grounds, near this city, yesterday, and took up its line of march for the army. It initiated the recent actions before Richmond, and out of 90 members carried into action, brought out 30 alive and unwounded. They have been recruiting for several weeks past. They have now, as formerly, splendid guns, and are prepared to go and do good service.
