White Hall (Whitehall, White Hall Ferry )

Brig. Gen. John G. Foster, US

Brig. Gen. Beverly Robertson, CSA



The Union deployed two brigades, the South one.



There were only about 150 casualties.



On December 16, Foster's Union troops reached White Hall where Beverly Robertson's brigade was holding the north bank of the Neuse River. The Federals demonstrated against the Confederates for much of the day, attempting to fix them in position, while the main Union column continued toward the railroad.
