March 3, 1862-- Part 2: Capture of Military Supplies and Cooperation Between Services

Commander Drayton on board the Ottawa took a moving train under fire with military stores.  Launches under Commander C.R.P. Rodgers captured the steamer Darlington with a cargo of military stores.

Du Pont had only the highest praise for his association with Brigadier General Wright, commanding the brigade of troops on the expedition:  "Our plans of action have been matured by mutual consultation, and have been carried into execution by mutual help."
