Diary of Betty Herndon Maury - May 10, 1862

Saturday May 10th [1862]

Saw the enemy’s signal lights last night on the court house tower and the answering ones from the hills across the river. They are not stationary but constantly moving in different figures and shapes. They looked beautiful and so mysterious. This morning they are signaling with different coloured flags.
