Their names shall be duly reported. During the engagement my color-bearer was shot, and down went the flag; but like lightning it gleamed aloft again, in the hands of three men, struggling who should have it; their names are John B. Schuble of company E, Charles Flick-hammer of company H, and Sergeant John Baker of company D; the latter bore it throughout the remainder of the day. Private Wm. Shumaker of company G was badly shot through the thigh, but persisted in lighting with the regiment till he was forced to the rear by order of his captain; I commend him for his devotion. Sergeant-Major Willett deported himself most bravely, and deserves promotion. Adjutant Johnston rendered me every assistance in his power, and I especially thank him.

At the Battle of Port Royal, November 7, 1861, this command, under Captain Stephen Elliott, Jr., (later brigadiergen-eral, C. S. A.) was assigned to duty on the Bay Point side of the harbor, and it was the only artillery garrison on that side.
