Second Corps Advances to Auburn

Tuesday, October 13, 1863

In response to Confederate troop movements the Second Corps remained only one hour in Fayettesville before Union General George Meade ordered another march to his exhausted troops. The Twentieth Massachusetts marched all day as the Second Corps advanced with cavalry to Auburn, arriving at 9:00 P.M.1
