Diary of Corporal Charles H. Lynch: December 12, 1864

Report comes this morning that guerillas crossed Sheridan's railroad last night and captured a train on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, near Duffield Station. They passed near our picket posts. Did not molest us, as we did not see or hear anything of them. Trains with passengers, mail, and supplies pass over this road. The rebs no doubt read Sheridan's notice, for many of them have homes in this vicinity.
