FROM OUR OWN
Battlefield of Cold Harbor
June 3 4 p.m.
General Early commanding Ewell’s corps attacked the
enemy’s right yesterday afternoon and drove him with great slaughter out of
his works suffering but slight loss himself. Among his killed was the brave
General Doles of Georgia.
At the same time Breckinridge on the right supported by
Wilcox attacked the enemy on Turkey Hill and drove them some distance thus
securing an important position. Skirmishing and picket firing all night.
