led, including Capt. Ferguson, of company I. He was one of our best officers. Eighty were wounded, among whom were seven commissioned officers, namely, Lieut.-Col. Wm. W. Berry, shot through the wrist; Major John L. Treanor, wounded by a shell in the thigh; Capt. A. H. Speed, in the abdomen; Capt. L. P. Lovett, slightly in the tenny, shot through the leg. The skirmishing in which my command took part on the days succeeding this was of an uneventful character, and I forego the details. Wm. W. Berry, Lieut.-Col. Commanding L. L., Fifth Kentucky Vol. Infantry. Report of Colonel Enyart. headquarters First Kentucky volunteers, camp near Murfreesboro,m to a place among the best military minds of the age; his manner of maintaining the position placed him forever by the side of Ney, Bozzaris, and Leonidas. Lieut.-Col. Berry, of the Louisville Legion, acquitted himself nobly, as all who know him always knew he would. Major King, of the Fifteenth infantry, won the admiration of a
gether with twelve mounted men as an escort to the baggage train, and Col. Connor, Major McGarry, Major Gallagher, and Lieut. Berry, constituted the entire fighting force that went North. Guides and others attached to the company are, of course, notted the Indians breaking. A wild yell from the troops announced this fact to the Colonel, and in an instant he had Lieutenants Berry, Quinn, and Conrad with a detachment of mounted cavalry charging furiously down the river, and cut off the Indian re troops, and another severe fight took place. In a few seconds Lieut. Quinn had his horse shot from under him, and Lieutenant Berry was badly wounded in the right shoulder, and here, also, a number of the men fell. A few minutes after Lieutenant BLieutenant Berry fell, Major Gallagher received a painful wound in the left arm, the ball passing through it entering his side, while one of the men close by Col. Connor was shot from his horse. Soon the Indians were completely broken, and in full retreat, but
men of the Second cavalry, C. V., with a train of fifteen wagons, carrying twelve days supplies, to proceed in that direction. On the twenty-fourth ult., I proceeded with detachments from companies A, H, K, and M, Second cavalry, C. V., numbering two hundred and twenty men, accompanied by Major McGarry, Second cavalry, C. V.; Surgeon Reid, Third infantry, C. V.; Captains McLean and Price, and Lieutenants Chase, Clark, Quinn, and Conrod, Second C. V.; Major Gallagher, Third infantry and Captain Berry, Second cavalry, C. V., who were present at this post attending general court-martial, as volunteers. I marched the first night to Brigham City, about sixty-eight miles distant, and the second night's march from Camp Douglas, I overtook the infantry and artillery at the town of Menden, and ordered them to march again that night. I resumed my march with the cavalry, and overtook the infantry at Franklin, W. T., about twelve miles from the Indian encampment. I ordered Capt. Hoyt, with t
hot-guns and rifles. Todd wore a large cloth coat, with an ample cape and flowing sleeves, and had also a slouched hat, which he soon exchanged with a passenger for a new light-colored beaver. He gave the command, and the work of murder commenced. The passengers were mostly ladies, and the few gentlemen were unarmed. They first killed George Meyer, by shooting him in the back. Meyer was formerly in this city, and when Colonel Peabody was here after the siege of Lexington, he was in Major Berry's cavalry command, acting as Quartermaster. For a time he was Sergeant-Major of the Fifth cavalry, Colonel Penick. During the last winter he was frequently engaged, with Assistant Secreretary Rodman, in the Senate at Jefferson City, in writing up the journal. He was a young man of the most generous impulses, and will be mourned by a large number of men, who will avenge his death.
