War diary and letters of Stephen Minot Weld

June 15. — We started at daylight, and rode at a gallop to Bristoe’s Station. Here we found General Meade. From here we proceeded to Manassas Junction, where we halted for some time, and where General Reynolds ordered the Third and Fifth Corps to be put in position. General Reynolds now commands five corps, the First, Third, Fifth and Eleventh, and the Cavalry Corps. From Manassas Junction we came to Centreville, and had our headquarters placed near General Howard’s. The weather was very hot.
