From the Mon., Jun. 15, 1863 issue

The general conclusion from the facts obtained with reference to the recent right on the Rappahannock is that our men very gallantly retrieved the fortunes of the day, which, under the circumstances of a complete surprise by a superior force, would have resulted in a disastrous defeat to men less brave and determined than they. Our own accounts are sustained by the Yankee dispatches, which show plainly that the enemy does not consider that he achieved anything to boast of. Indeed, he achieved nothing but a repulse.—Stoneman, following the illustrious example of Burnside and Hooker, ended his battle by taking himself back to that side of the river from which he came in the morning.
