Quote for today… “A skirmish occurred in Wrightsville, opposite Columbia, three hours ago. Col. FRICK’s men fought the enemy is their rifle-pits gallantly, till surrounded and overpowered. Over one hundred were captured, and the rest retreated across the bridge, which was then fired. The bridge was one mile and a quarter long, and worth a million. The excitement here now amounts to a panic. Everything is leaving.” – From a June 29, 1863 telegram from Lancaster, CWDGonline
