Two page Document on HQ 2nd Division, II Corps Letterhead from Gershom
Mott to an un-named Union Captain.  9/10/64 in pencil in Mott's hand
"Captain, the enemy has recovered a small port of the pits taken from this
AM with a few prisoners.  On the right of the plan road the Col commanding
the Regiment advanced his line farther than was intended mistaking in the
dark once certain tree for another and instead of taking up a new line on the
crest of the ravine he occupied the pits from which he had driven the enemy,
these they have re-occupied. I can without doubt establish the line on the
crest at that place tonight, it is now disputed ground and constant firing is
kept up.  Until this exception, the new line is complete.  On the left of the
plank road it is well established and on the crest  formerly occupied by the
enemy.  I regret to report that Lt Col Weikert 20th Indiana seriously if not
mortally wounded.  Very Respectfully Your ObS  G Mott Brig Genl"  Written
