—Jan. 1, 1863 —

Passing southwest from Kingsport along the south side of Clinch Mountain to Looney's Gap, the task force of Brigadier General Samuel P. Carter avoided an ineffectual Confederate pursuit and rested here overnight. They had destroyed three important bridges, one engine, two cars and 700 stands of arms, inflicting Confederate losses of 550, at a reported cost of 10 killed, wounded or captured. From here the raiders moved to Jonesville, Va., and were disbanded.
