||Maj. Gen. William H.F. "Rooney" Lee’s cavalry division pursued Wilson’s and Kautz’s raiders who failed to
destroy the Staunton River Bridge on June 25. Wilson and Kautz headed east and, on June 28, crossed the Nottoway
River at the Double Bridges and headed north to Stony Creek Depot on the Weldon Railroad. Here, they were attacked
by Maj. Gen. Wade Hampton’s cavalry division. Later in the day, William H.F. Lee’s Division arrived to join forces with
Hampton, and the Federals were heavily pressured. During the night, Wilson and Kautz disengaged and pressed north on
the Halifax Road for the supposed security of Reams Station, abandoning many fleeing slaves who had sought security
with the Federal raiders.
