Fredrick Hook Transcript
Castine Nov. 1st 1864
At midnight a small party of men approached our harbor battery from the rear. When challenged they immediately fired upon the Sentinel who returned the fire. Sergeant Ramsdell in command was fired upon as he came out of his quarters four balls lodging within two feet of him. The Garrison mustered promptly and persued them firing upon them and they replying about half a mile – one of them probably was wounded. When they took a boat and escaped.
