While the skirmishers were out, they brought in a number of prisoners, and captured some horses, mules, &c.
I take pleasure in commending the good order and conduct of the officers and men of this regiment, which was all that I could wish.
I am under obligations to Captain Gibson, of company D, for his services, acting as Major on the day of the engagement, and rendered me good service.
Lieutenant Kent Ewing, acting as Adjutant of this regiment, rendered efficient aid by his brave conduct and promptness in carrying out my orders.
