Night of July 2

"It seems Captain Selfridge of Company H, had taken some of his men's canteens and gone on ahead to Spangler's Spring to fill them, when he discovered "Johnnies" also there filling their canteens. He backed out with the best grace he could command, and reported it to the Colonel... A skirmish line ... found the enemy as stated and saved many lives."
