1862 November 17 Staunton, Va.

[from the diary of Joseph Addison Waddell, civilian employee of the Quartermaster Dept.]

Monday, Nov. 17, 1862.
Our cavalry returned from Highland report that there are no Yankees in that region this side of the Alleghany — A company of Federal cavalry had been at Monterey. More than a hundred Yankee prisoners were brought up the Valley yesterday. No news of special interest from any quarter.
