ey were lying down in a ditch on the lower side of a plantation road in the edge of woods at Georgia Landing, and immediately on the left of the battery. I ordered skirmishers at once in tire woods to secure prisoners. Carruth arrived about this time, and I sent him with one section and Perkins's cavalry in pursuit. They pursued about four miles, Carruth firing upon the retreating forces on both sides of the bayou. I have since learned that Simms's battery of six pieces, supported by Col. Clark's (tile Thirty-third) regiment of Louisiana volunteers, was in front on the left bank. I lost eighteen killed and seventy-four wounded. Lieut. Francis, of the Twelfth Connecticut, was taken prisoner before the fight. We have buried five of the enemy, and have seventeen wounded in our hospital, but I have proof that their loss was greater. I took one hundred and sixty-six of the enemy prisoners the day of battle, and forty-two of them since — total, two hundred and eight; I released th
is, and Second Wisconsin, having been with you during the day, I know but little of the parts taken by them. They have on other fields proved themselves worthy of the name of American soldiers, and I have no doubt sustained it while with you. Major Hubbard and his command, the fighting battalion of the First Missouri cavalry, gallantly held in check the rebel advance in the early part of the day, and on this occasion officers and men have added to their already high reputation. To Capt. Wm. Hyde Clark, my Assistant Adjutant-General, who had for three days been carried sick in an ambulance, but mounted that morning to be with me during the battle, I am much indebted for services on the field, and also to Captain Littleton, C. S., Captain Brewster, Lieutenants Pettit, Thomas, and Douglass, of my staff, for their conduct and assistance throughout the battle. There were many instances of individual courage and bravery that I should like to mention, but will have to refer you to the re
Doc. 38.-fight at Waverly, Tenn. Monmouth Atlas account. Fort Donelson, October 28. Mr. Clark: The Eighty-third are all together once more. Companies C and H were ordered here, bag and baggage, on Tuesday of last week. The Seventy-first Ohio, or what is left of it--four companies — took our places at Fort Heiman. The same thing might, and should have been done long age. It would have been done, had our officers had it in their power. But Colonel Lowe, of the Fifth Iowa cavalry, was in command of these three posts — Donelson, Henry and Heiman, and for some reason — known only to himself — chose to divide us. But he has lately been ordered to Washington; leaving Col. Harding in command here. As soon as he could do so, he got us together. We earnestly hope that we may not again be separated. I like the location much better than that at Fort Heiman. On our arrival here, we learned that five companies of the Eighty-third, with one field-piece of Flood's battery, had
nt of men from companies K and M, were doing fearful execution. In the space of five minutes, eight of his men had fallen in death or were mortally wounded; but others taking their places, the contest was kept up, and at the close of the struggle, forty-eight Indians were lying together in a heap, which showed how bravely they had fought for life. Lieut. Quinn, with a small detachment, had entered the ravine from the east, and did, in the language of report, excellent execution, while Lieutenant Clark, with another detachment, commanded the mouth of the ravine, and did also his duty, as the Indians were driven toward the river. By this time the fight had lasted nearly four hours; many of the men with feet so badly frozen that they could scarcely walk, and others with fingers so frozen that they could not tell they had a cartridge in their hands, unless they looked for it there. The Indians, bravely as they fought, could not withstand the indomitable will and bravery of the troo
