African Americans Helping the Union

G.K. Warren - Major-General of Volunteers
Vaughan Road, Dinwiddie, VA
March 29, 1865

My column is just passing the junction of the stage road with the Vaughan road. No sign of enemy. I have an old negro who has been hiding around in the woods near Crawford Church. He says he saw a man from Dinwiddie Court-House yesterday, and there were no troops there. I cannot rely much upon what he says. I send this up the Vaughan road by Captain Winslow with an escort of ten men.
