Wm. R. announced the strengthen  enemy were coming in, then announced we are flanked on the left, all returned to a point to the right of the fort, where the colored troops ((37th. USCT)) were about to shoot. When the left flank ((forts located on the east side of Plymouth)) collapsed the ((103d)) troops to the left of Fort Williams were ordered to unite in an effort to drive them ((CSA)) out ((of the town)) again. I called my Company  F from the protection of the rifle pits and bombproof and joined the others in the street leading back into the town. Lieut. Col. Maxwell was in command of our battalion. That we might face the enemy, he ordered us to change front forward on the left company. I led my company to the position desired, which was along a drain which would serve as a line of rifle pits. The rebels were pouring on us a severe fire from buildings, and from behind any object that would conceal them. We saw but few of them, though the whizzing balls and the white smoke from their weapons told us of their presence. As I stood on the flank of my company bringing it into line, a bullet went whizzing through the muscles of my thigh, giving me such a shock that I staggered and my sword dropped from my hand. Some of the men offered to as­sist me to the rear, but I declined their aid, sheathed my sword and limped back to the works, leaving Sergeant Armagost to command the company, which was bravely fighting. Co. B and K surrendered first, then the others, my sword, pistol and quarters were pillaged, 2d NC Union troops took insignia from our men, I added their names to my roster; 15 were identified. and hung ((by CSA)); I was one of a party of wounded, seven officers who were allowed to occupy a one room build­ing that had been used as a laundry, and we made ar­rangements with its owner, Mrs. Whittaker, and Mrs. Leonard ((wife of Leonard, Newton: Co. H  2d Mass. Hvy. Arty.)), the laundress of the 85th New York, to cook for us. My companions were with one exception able to move about. We gave our parole of honor not to at­tempt to escape from Plymouth, and so we were not dis­turbed by the guards. The severely wounded were in hospital tents and buildings in different parts of the town. The unharmed prisoners had been marched away, and the flushed victors had gone to other fields of action; remained 16 days in Plymouth.
