Jul. 7 Report of Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan (1st)

HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF THE OHIO,
Buckhannon, Va., July 7, 1861.

An unauthorized scout last night got into trouble, but extricated itself with great gallantry, losing one man killed and five wounded. Brought off all the wounded and the musket of the man killed. They killed a large number of the enemy, who were probably Georgia troops. The enemy did not pursue.

GEO. B. McCLELLAN,
Major-General.
