Tuesday, June 24, 1862

Gardening.  Hunter has had a fight at James Island off Charleston on the 16th.  We have only rebel accounts which claim a victory for the South.

Peggy's comments:
It was indeed a Confederate victory, and although a minor one, it generated a large amount of positive press for the South.
