MARCH 21, 1863—8 p.m.
General LEONIDAS POLK,
GENERAL: My scouts run the pickets in from Jordan’s Store, and followed near College Grove. Citizens told the captain that there were two regiments (infantry) on this side of the river,-besides one cavalry [regiment].
I am off to that place immediately, to try and find out all about and attack them, if practicable.
