From the Harrisburg Telegraph:
Skirmish on Edisto Island, South Carolina in which thegallant 55th Regiment, commanded by Colonel Richard White. Composed almost entirely of Indiana, Cambria and Bedford county men, wereengaged.
The following is the list of casualities to wit:

Wounded: John Steffe, Company F, and prisoner

We are well acquainted with Messrs. Saupp (who has sincebeen found dead), Gollipher, Garlinger, Richey and Ream, all Bedford County men. They were noble young men, and we are sorry to hear of their sad fate.
