The following might be of some help.I also suggest you post on the Civil War forum (under General Topics on Home page).
HDQRS. SEWARD INFANTRY, 103rd Regiment N. Y. S. V., Hdqrs. 9th N. J. Regiment, near Newport, April 15, 1862.
SIR: With this I have the honor to report to you the partial success of my expedition against the Second Regiment North Carolina Volunteers.
I brought all the available forces of that regiment to battle last night at Th. Gillett's farm. The regiment was commanded by its colonel, William G. Robinson, formerly of the Regular Army, an old Indian fighter, like myself. I made him prisoner. I could not recapture the Ninth New Jersey boys, they having been transported to Kinston before I reached Young's. Th. Gillett's farm, the battle ground is situated 6 miles south of Young's, at the fork of the Onslow and Carolina City roads. I made many prisoners. The wounded enemies number considerable.
I will have the honor to report to you in full on my arrival at New Berne.
I have the honor to be, most respectfully, your obedient servant,
Colonel, Seward Infantry, 103rd Regiment N. Y. S. V.
