Lincoln, Abraham, 1809-1865.
Head Quarters Armies of the United States,
Hon. W. H. Seward City-Point,
Fort-Monroe, Va. April 1. 5/30 [P.M.] 1865

Despatch just received, showing that Sheridan, aided by Warren, had at 2. P.M. pushed the enemy back so as to retake the five forks, and bring his own Head Quarters up to J. Boissau's. The five forks were barricaded by the enemy, and carried by Devin's [2] Division of Cavalry. This part of the enemy seem to now be trying to work along the White Oak Road, to join the main force in front of Grant, while Sheridan & Warren are pressing them as closely as possible.
