In the White House, President Lincoln meets with Maryland Governor Augustus W. Bradford and Colonel John R. Kenly, whose Union forces were defeated at Front Royal, Virginia, on May 23.

A newspaper reports, "President Lincoln received the gallant officer very kindly, and inquired with much interest into the details of the battle."
