skirmish-line. Was relieved at nine P. M. same day, and went into camp with the brigade that night about one and a half miles behind the skirmish-line previously held by my regiment. Our forces remained here in camp until the twenty-first instant, when the enemy having evacuated Savannah, we came into the city and encamped in our present position. The distance marched by us, from the Chattahoochee to Savannah, was two hundred and eighty miles. No casualties in my regiment, except private Davis, company A, who was accidentally shot by some one foraging near the road, November eighteenth, and died that night; also a private of company F was accidentally shot in camp, but not mortally. It will be very difficult for me to give estimates of horses, mules, forage, etc., captured by my command during the march, but the following will at least approximate the actual results: Corn seized, 100 bushels; blade fodder, 1500 pounds; rice fodder, 1000 pounds; fresh pork, 8000 pounds; swee

Handcock, Ninth Pennsylvania, for gallant and meritorious conduct throughout the campaign; Lieutenant McJ. Davis, of Third Kentucky cavalry, and Lieutenant Bryen, Fifth Kentucky, for their gallantry in charging the enemy at Buckhead Creek; Sergeant Emory, company H, Sergeant Pepper, company L, Second Kentucky cavalry, and Sergeant James Taylor, Commissary Sd in direction of Louisville. During the march, my command, with the Second Kentucky cavalry, having been left to protect the rear, we were charged in the rear and on both flanks whilst crossing a swamp. Recoving from a momentary disorder, Lieutenant Davis, with a small force, charged the enemy, driving them back, whilst the balance of the regiment formed on a line with the Fifth Kentucky, then in position. In this charge we lost nine (9) men, one of whom was killed. Moving forward about f
V. General Stuart, with the First, Fourth, and Ninth Virginia cavalry, the cavalry of Cobb's Legion and the Jeff Davis Legion, will cross the Chickahominy, to-morrow, and take position to the left of General Jackson's line of march. The main body will be held in reserve, with scouts well extended to the front and left. General Stuart will keep General Jackson informed of the movements of the enemy on his left, and will cooperate with him in his advance. The Sixteenth Virginia cavalry, Colonel Davis, will remain on the Nine Mile road. V. General Ransom's brigade, of General Holmes's command, will be placed in reserve on the Williamsburgh road, by General Huger, to whom he will report for orders. VI. Commanders of divisions will cause their commands to be provided with three days cooked rations. The necessary ambulances and ordnance-trains will be ready to accompany the divisions, and receive orders from their respective commanders. Officers in charge of all trains will invar

As early as possible after General Holmes passed with his force, I followed, and reported to him at the Drill House, near New Market. There, finding President Davis, I submitted my action, in joining General Holmes without orders, to him, and, he approving, I took orders from General Holmes. He posted me in position on tas well as that of Friday, we lost many valuable officers and men. Captains Owens, Harper, and Stuckie were wounded — the first two, I fear, very seriously. Lieutenant Davis died gallantly on the field; and Lieutenants Watson and Miller were wounded, besides many others killed and wounded, a list of whom is enclosed. Seven cap
d by officers and men of all the regiments. After the enemy was thus driven back, and the fire of his small arms had for some time entirely ceased, the troops, having been under an incessant musketry and artillery fire for two hours and twenty minutes, were so thoroughly exhausted, and their ammunition so nearly expended, as to render necessary the order to retire for the purpose of re-forming and obtaining a fresh supply of ammunition. Remaining myself an hour longer in front, with Lieutenant Davis and six men of the Tenth Georgia volunteers, I then withdrew, and reported to Major-General McLaws, who ordered my brigade to be re-assembled in reserve. Thirty-six prisoners, including a Lieutenant-Colonel and First Lieutenant, were captured at a farmhouse, the most advanced position held by my brigade, which was some hundreds of yards in advance of the other portions of our line of battle. The reports of regimental commanders are herewith submitted, to which reference is respectfu
fell upon the enemy's flank, and found him in very strong position, occupying the crest of a high hill, with an open field in front. This hill General Birge caused to be carried by assault by the Third brigade of my division, Colonel Fessenden commanding. It was done in the most gallant style, and reflects great credit upon General Birge, Colonel Fessenden, and the Third brigade. This, in fact, was the turning-point of the battle, and it was here our principal loss was encountered. Colonel Davis, commanding cavalry brigade, did not succeed in gaining the enemy's right flank and rear; but as soon as the enemy broke, I sent forward Colonel Chrisler, supported by Colonel Cribbs,--both cavalry commanders,--supported by General Cameron, to pursue the enemy and capture his artillery if possible. The main force of the enemy took the Fort Jessup road. One small regiment, either because it was hard pressed, or with the intention of misleading our troops, retreated on the Henderson Hill
