until four P. M., and many of the men fell out from exhaustion, and have since rejoined.
I bear willing testimony to the gallantry of the whole command, officers and soldiers, and feel proud of having the honor of commanding such brave and determined men. I am under many obligations to Lieutenant C. C. Hardwicke, Eighth Georgia volunteers, A. A. A. General, for his bravery and gallantry, executing promptly every order intrusted to him. Also, to Captain J. G. Jackson, of Virginia, and Charles Daniel, of Georgia, volunteer Aids, for gallantry and distinguished services on all occasions.
I cannot refrain from mentioning private D. E. Humphries, company C, Eleventh Georgia volunteers, my orderly, for his gallantry and good conduct.
I am, sir, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant, Geo. T. Anderson, Colonel Eleventh Georgia Volunteers, commanding Brigade.
