ad us into an ambuscade, became exasperated, and some few acts of violence ensued. Six or seven buildings were burned. I exerted myself with many of the officers to put a stop to the incendiarism, and finally succeeded. I will not attempt to justify such acts of violence; but if any thing could palliate them, it would be the deserted homes and desolated fields of our Union friends, which I witnessed upon the march. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, J. B. Plummer, Col. Eleventh Mo. Vols. Com. To Capt. J. A. Rawlings, A. A.-G., Dist. S. E. Mo., Cairo, Ill. Official report of Col. Marsh.

gn of twenty days you have driven the rebels from Eastern Kentucky, and given repose to that portion of the State. You have made continual forced marches over wretched roads, deep in mud; badly clad, you have bivouacked on the wet ground in the November rains without a murmur. With scarce half rations, you have pressed forward with unfailing perseverance. The only place that the enemy made a stand, though ambushed and very strong, you drove him from in the most brilliant style. For your consnd the men had to wade through mud and in a heavy rain all the day of the 9th, the march being heavy and slow on account of the felled trees obstructing the road, and the necessary repairing of bridges. At night the army again bivouacked in the November rain, and the next morning they reached Pikeville, where Colonel Sill had arrived the previous night. Captain Berryhill of the Second Ohio was wounded severely at Ivy Creek, while leading the column up the mountain side. During these operati

ter, but it had its stragglers too. Which regiment had not its large share? But Manny Richards, the energetic teamster of the Seventeenth, pushed in his wagons, and the Fairfield boys pitched their tents merrily. But the prospect for the other regiment was cheerless. Their wagons were far behind. Officers threatened to move where shelter could be found for the men, but orders must be obeyed, and they prepared again to bivouac on the cold, cold ground, in the freezing atmosphere of drear November. But now there is another order fresh from Headquarters at Crab Orchard. Exhausted as they are, soldiers are forbidden to burn rails. They must cut wood for bivouac fire, or sleep in the frosty atmosphere without fires. Orders must be obeyed. Twenty men are detailed to cut wood, and wagons are sent out. Sunset is approaching. Headquarters, who forty hours ago knew the men were coming, knew they were suffering, had not provided axes. Yet the order was cut wood. Look at the field adj
