It would appear that the troops remained encamped at the same place on 21 Oct., and the Orderly Book entry of that date places the encampment “at the S. E. Side Laurel Hill.” This suggests that White Oak Ridge and Laurel Hill are perhaps one and the same. Clear Fields, at the eastern foot of Laurel Hill, was the site of Fort Dudgeon. This was where Bouquet was on 13 Oct. when he got word from James Burd of the attack on Loyalhanna (see Orderly Book, 13 Oct., n.1).
