efore a commission for examination for competency, as soon as he joins the corps. He is at present (I am unofficially informed) at a camp of paroled or exchanged prisoners, somewhere in this Department. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, E. O. C. Ord, Major-General Vols., Commanding Thirteenth Army Corps. Official Copy. C. A. Nichols, Assistant Adjutant-General. General Washburn's report. headquarters detachment Thirteenth army corps, Vermillion bridge, November 7, 1863. Major William Hoffman, Assistant Adjutant-General: Major: I inclose herewith report of Brigadier-General Burbridge, in regard to the battle of Grand Coteau, on the third instant. Also of Lieutenant-Colonel Robinson, commanding Seconds Louisiana cavalry, and statements of Captain Simms, Sixty-seventh Indiana, and Lieutenant Gorman, Second Louisiana cavalry, who were wounded and taken prisoners, but who were supposed to be privates, and were delivered over, under a flag of truce, wit
ith cavalry dismounted. The victory was decisive, and the enemy's retreat became a total rout, his forces throwing away their arms and scattering in every direction. The cavalry pursued till dark, capturing many prisoners and a large quantity of arms, ammunition, etc. The enemy's wounded have all fallen into our hands. Our loss in killed and wounded is about one hundred. B. F. Kelley, Brigadier-General. General Averill's despatch. near Falling Springs, West-Virginia, November 7, 1863. Brigadier-General Kelley, Commanding Department: On the fifth instant I attacked Jenkins in front of Mill Point, and drove him from his position, with trifling loss on either side. Yesterday morning he was reenforced by General Echols, from Lewisburgh, with Patten's brigade and a regiment of Jenkins's command, and assumed a strong position upon the summit of Droop Mountain, a position similar to that upon South-Mountain, in Maryland, but stronger, from natural difficulties and br
ry; but there is the further reflection to offset the saddening influence of the loss of your well-tried and courageous brothers-inarms, that any subsequent attack upon your opponents, better prepared and strengthened as they would have been, must have been attended with a yet sadder and, it may be, a less successful result. And it is just and fitting here to acknowledge the soldierly conduct and valuable assistance of Colonel Upton and his gallant regiments, the Fifth Maine and the One Hundred and Twenty-first New-York. Prompt in their support, they deserve our heartiest thanks, as by their bravery they won a large share of the honors of the day. The banners of this brigade shall bear the name, Rappahannock, to perpetuate, so long as those banners shall endure, dropping and shredding away though they may be for generations, the proud triumph won by you on the seventh of November, 1863. By command of Brigadier-General D. A. Russell. C. A. Hurd, Assistant Adjutant-General.
Doc. 13.-fight at Campbell's Station, Tenn. Knoxville, Tenn., November 7, 1863. The first engagement of any consequence between our forces and those of Longstreet, in the retreat to Knoxville, took place yesterday, at Campbell's Station — a little collection of houses on the Kingston road, where it forms a junction with the road to Loudon. During the night of Sunday, the rebels made three different charges on our position at Lenoir, with the intention of capturing the batteries on the right of our position; but every onset was met and repulsed. In the morning, our troops again took up the march in retreat, and the rebels pushed our rear-guard with so much energy that we were compelled to burn a train of wagons, to obtain the mules to aid in getting away the artillery. Its destruction was necessary, as otherwise we would have been compelled to abandon it to the enemy. One piece of artillery, which had become mired and could not be hauled out by the horses, fell into th
