During the whole affair, the rebels attacked us in a very scattered, irregular manner, but with perseverance and resolution, nor did they ever dare to form into a regular body.  Indeed they knew too well what was proper, to do so.  Whoever looks upon them as an irregular mob, will find himself very much mistaken.  They have men amongst them who know very well what they are about, having been employed as rangers against the Indians and Canadians, and the country being very much cover with wood, and hilly, is very advantageous for the method of fighting.  ~ Lord Hugh Percy
