The White Council at Dol Guldur [In reply to] Can't Post

2. The White Council assaults Dol Guldur.
(not from the appendices-determined from The Silmarillion text)
..."... they put forth their strength; and they assailed Dol Guldur, and drove Sauron from his hold, and Mirkwood for a brief while was made wholesome again."
..."But their stroke was too late. For the Dark Lord had foreseen it, and he had long prepared all his movements; and... ...his Nine Servants, had gone before him to make ready for his coming. Therefore his flight was but a feint, and he soon returned, and ere the Wise could prevent him he re-entered his kingdom in Mordor and reared once again the dark towers of Barad-dűr. And in that year the White Council met for the last time, and Curunír withdrew to Isengard, and took counsel with none save himself."


My own impression is that the White Council's assault on Dol Guldur was essentially complete by the time that the company reached Esgaroth and Gandalf was mainly taking part in the mop-up at that time. From The Hobbit:


Quote
So you see Bilbo had come in the end by the only road that was any good. It might have been some comfort to Mr. Baggins shivering on the barrels, if he had known that news of this had reached Gandalf far away and given him great anxiety, and that he was in fact finishing his other business (which does not come into this tale) and getting ready to come in search of Thorin's company. But Bilbo did not know it.
