Butler's Campaign Ends
— Bermuda Hundred Campaign —"Neither army, however, manifested any disposition either to advance or retire. It was a case of stand and fire, each endeavoring to cripple the other the most, and gain, if it could, some advantage here or there. The enemy's one battery was handled with rapidity and accuracy, and they sent us quite a number of dangerous missiles, that exploded very near to our guns and did considerable damage." - Private Benjamin W. Jones, Surry Light Artillery, describing the action on May 14 inside Fort Stevens.
