point at that ford was weak, I was to send three companies of my command to strengthen the same. I immediately placed companies A, F, and D, under command of Captain Boyd, with instructions in conformity with the above. I then formed the remaining companies in line of battle, in such manner as would best command the crossing ane of shell, shot, canister, and musketry, until about four o'clock P. M., when, in accordance with orders, he withdrew his force. I regret that the absence of Captain Boyd, who together with the three companies composing his command are missing, renders it impossible to give a report of the service performed by him. It is proper to remark that Captain Boyd regarded the position intrusted to him as so exposed, and admitting of so little means of escape, that he objected to occupying the same until the order was repeated. I am pleased to say that my command behaved in a manner creditable to their State and the noble cause in which they were engaged. Below
here was terrible, and, although we inflicted severe punishment upon the enemy, and checked his advance, it was with the loss in killed and wounded, of more than two thirds of our men who were engaged. Here Captain Muller, of Company E, and Lieutennat Farrer, of Company I, were killed, and Captain Periam, of Company K, mortally wounded. Colonel Colville, Lieuteuant-Colonel Adams, Major Downie, Adjutant Peller, and Lieutenants Sinclair, Company B, Demorest, Company E, DeGray, Company G, and Boyd, Company I, were severely wounded.

Fully two thirds of the enlisted men engaged were either killed or wounded. Companies F, C, and L, not being engaged here, did not suffer severely on this day's fight. The command of the regiment now devolved upon Captain Nathan S. Messick. At daybreak the next morning the enemy renewed the
of Semmes' battery, the Fourth and Thirtieth Louisiana, and Boyd's Louisiana battalion, under command of Colonel Allen, of te colors in his hand, had both legs shattered, and Lieutenant-Colonel Boyd received a severe wound. This produced confusion, to this charge, as I infer from not seeing him in it, Colonel S. Boyd had been wounded and removed from the field. His battarticipation of this battalion, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Sam Boyd, in the action of the fifth inst. Its force cons and unsullied patriotism. A few yards further on Lieutenant-Colonel Boyd fell, shot through the arm, and was borne off the many events, doubtless, noted by the experienced eye of Colonel Boyd, must be unchronicled because of his absence. While CoColonel Boyd was in command, his promptitude and courage ably sustained the policy of Colonel Allen. His Adjutant, Lieutenantnt-Major Daniels; Battalion of Stewart's Legion, Lieutenant-Colonel Sam Boyd, who was disabled by a flesh wound in the arm. C
