DB "arrived in Charlottesville on or shortly before May 24th, sat for 12 days with the Legislative, was captured in Charlottesville on June 4th, 1781, and spent the night in a "coal-house" [where charcoal was stored] in Charlottesville, leaving there on the afternoon of the 5th as Tarleton's prisoner. The night of the 5th was likely spent in the neighborhood of Watson's Ordinary, later called Boyd's Old Tavern. By the night of the 6th, Tarleton and his prisoners should have arrived at Cornwallis's Elk Hill Headquarters, and if it was on the monring of the 7th that Boone was paroled, then his quickest likely schedule for rejoining his fellow legislators (assuming, as one must, that most of the trip was made on shank's mare) would have put him by nightfall on the 7th at Watson's Ordinary, and in Charlottesville (if he went directly there, which he may not have done) by the 8th. From Charlottesville it was only a 2-day trip by foot (via Wood's Gap) to Staunton. Boone could, therefore, conceivably have been in Staunton by the 10th, but in fact we know that he did not get there that quickly, because the record of his attendance on the Legislature in Staunton for six days only , from the 18th-23rd, is quite clear."

"A gentleman came here from Staunton, to which the Assembly is adjourned, being routed at Charlottesvile by Tarleton and a body of Light Horse who marched there from Hanover Court House in a short time to surprise the whole. They however took three or four, among whom are Col. [John] Syme, Col. Boone, and a member of Congress from South Carolina, called Kinlow [Francis Kinloch].
