k is stated in the report of General Floyd to have been, as the result of a consultation with the officers of divisions and brigades, to dislodge the enemy from the position on our left, and thus to pass our people into the open country. Col. John G. Brown reported that when his brigade moved out on Saturday morning it was provided with three days cooked rations and marched with knapsacks, the purpose being to turn the enemy's right wing and march out on the Wynn's Ferry road to fall back on ion of the battery in his hands. He pursued the retreating forces. After this another fierce combat ensued, but after the firing of a few volleys of musketry the enemy abandoned the field, leaving 800 killed and wounded. In this last combat Colonel Brown was reinforced by the Fourteenth Mississippi regiment and Graves' battery. The brigade lost 50 in killed and wounded, among them Col. Thomas M. Gordon of the Third, wounded, and the accomplished Lieut.-Col. W. P. Moore, mortally wounded.
