The regiment lost 12 killed and 42 wounded, among them the gallant Major Butler and Lieutenant Alexander. Beltzhoover's loss was 2 killed and 8 wounded, 45 horses killed, 2 guns missing. His modest report was, we stood doing our best until the whole line retreated to the river. At the river I formed battery again, though without ammunition, and so remained until carried down to the bank by force of the retreating troops. Polk telegraphed, Watson's battery, under Beltzhoover, immortalized! At a later date all of these Louisiana commands, except Beltzhoover's battery, were at Island
