Today at Brandy Station: June 13, 1863

Two articles from the Richmond Dispatch:

--Fifty-nine Yankees, most of them wounded, captured in the fight at Brandy Station, were received at the Libby prison during the day yesterday.

--The fight at Brandy Station
The following dispatch, dated Washington, June 9th, is the only notice of the fight in Culpeper which has reached the New York papers:
A severe engagement took place this morning between our cavalry and that of the rebels, under Gen. Stuart. The locality at which it occurred was Beverly's ford, on the Rappahannock, five miles above Rappahannock Station and about the same distance below the Sulphur Springs.
