ive miles, after the great fatigue of the battle.
Accompanying this report I enclose an accurate map of the field of battle, and the reports of the immediate commanders.
To the latter I would respectfully refer for individual acts of gallantry and patriotism.
I also forward the reports of the field-officer of the day, Lieutenant-Colonel McGuirk, of the Seventeenth regiment Mississippi Volunteers, to whom I am much indebted for information of the flank movements of the enemy.
Lieutenant Sheffield Duval, here on duty as topographical engineer, and Sergeant Wm. R. Chambliss, of the Eighteenth regiment Mississippi Volunteers, my private secretary, rendered material service — the former by fighting on foot with his musket as a private, the latter by conveying my orders on the field of battle under heavy fire. N. G. Evans, Brigadier-General, Commanding Seventh Brigade. To Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Jordan, Assistant Adjutant-General, First Corps Army of Potomac, near Centreville.
