Commanding First Division.
Colonel Scammon's report.
headquarters First provisional brigade, Kanawha division, Fort Ramsay, August 30, 1862. Captain G. M. Bascom, A. A.G.:
sir: I send, herewith, the reports of Colonel White and Lieut.-Col. Coleman, commanding the Twelfth and Eleventh Ohio regiments in the recent affair at Bull Run.
I have already rendered a report of the march, and I have only to transmit the detailed reports, with such remarks as I deem necessary to preserve a truby any troops whatever — for there was no faltering among them, nor was there the slightest appearance of any thing but eagerness to engage the enemy, and fight against every odds of numbers.
I have made especial mention of Col. White and Lieut.-Col. Coleman and Hines.
I should add the name of Major Jackson, of the Eleventh; and though such mention may seem a matter of course, I should be unjust were I not to bear witness to the coolness and efficient energy of Lieutenants Kennedy and Botsfor
Perry, in the arm; Timothy Dacey, in the arm; Thomas Rodgers, in arm and hand; Henry G. Rose, shoulder.
Of the Zouaves none were killed, though many slight wounds were received.
On the Shawsheen, Thos. Smith was seriously wounded through the head, and a few others on the same boat received some slight wounds.
On the Perry, one powderboy — a contraband, named Stephen Jones — was killed, while bravely performing his duty, and Daniel Donovan, a seaman on the same boat, was wounded, and Mr. Coleman, the executive officer of the Ceres, had his pants torn by a rebel bullet while in the act of fixing a shell for the enemy, and a splinter sent into his throat from a ball which struck the deck near his head.
Captain Woodward, Capt. Macdiarmid, and Capt. Flusser each had very narrow escapes.
This victory is of great importance, inasmuch as it clears the way to Weldon.
It is impossible to estimate the loss to the enemy, who, it is said, left some forty or fifty dead on the field.
