This report is on the events of December 21st, 1864:

Harper's Weekly – January 28th, 1865
The manner in which the rebel guerrilla Mosby was wounded is thus given by the Richmond Sentinel: β€œHe had been skirmishing during the 21st with the enemy, and at night was getting some supper at a farmer's house. The enemy, who were supposed to have retired, suddenly surrounded the house in large numbers. Colonel Mosby, hearing their footsteps, passed out of the room in which he was, and found himself confronting a squad that had entered the house. At the same moment he was shot through the window by some one without. The ball entered just under the ends of the ribs, on the left side, and passed out at a similar point on the right side, without wounding the bowels. He walked into a room and lay down.” Mosby had stated to the Federals that he was an officer in the Sixth Cavalry.

Great post Val! Of the few pictues and furniture that made it back here in one piece, my framed potrait and calling card with signature of Mosby made it in tact.
