other works in front of Casey's headquarters, and near the Williamsburgh road, the danger became imminent that he would overcome the resistance there, and advance down the road and through the abattis. In anticipation of such an event, I called Flood's and McCarthy's batteries of Couch's division, to form in and on the right and left of the junction of the Williamsburgh and Nine-mile roads; placed infantry in all the rifle-pits on the right and left, pushing some up also to the abattis, and con the following day, was so gloriously completed. During the action, and particularly during the two hours immediately preceding the final and successful stand made by the infantry, the three Pennsylvania batteries, under Major Robert M. West, (Flood's, McCarthy's and Miller's,) in Couch's division, performed most efficient service. The conduct of Miller's battery was admirable. Having a central position in the fore part of the action, it threw shells over the heads of our own troops. whic
, we rose gaily to our posts, ready to go forward, as I understand the order. Poor Easton was shot through the heart in Friday's fight. His cannoniers stuck to their guns till the rebel cavalry actually knocked the ammunition they were putting into them out of their hands. They took the battery and cried out to him to surrender. Never! was the reply, and in an instant he was knocked out of his saddle with a shower of bullets. Lieutenant Monk, of McCarty's battery, and Dougherty, of Flood's, in Sunday's skirmish or fight, gave the enemy's cavalry a lesson in dismounting on the charge — unsaddling some two hundred of them. Many of them were strapped to their horses, and of course were dragged or fell with them. Altogether, it was a lively time for these batteries. We were stationed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, guarding the railroad bridge. It was a laborious duty. Mr. Fagan, with two of my guns, I posted at Bottom's Bridge. In due time, the bridge was burned, and wh

He, therefore, after a good deal of labor and some unavoidable delay, concentrated a force at this post which was regarded sufficiently strong to march into and recapture Clarksville. The force consisted. of parts of the Eleventh Illinois, Col. Ransom; Thirteenth Wisconsin, Lieut.-Col. Chapman; Seventy-first Ohio, Major Hart, and part of the Fifth Iowa cavalry, one section of Flood's battery, and one section of Starbuck's battery, numbering in all about one thousand and thirty men. With this force, under command of Colonel Lowe, we started in the forenoon of the fifth instant for Clarksville. The line of march lay along the left bank of the Cumberland River, which stream we forded at our starting point, most of the infantry wading it. For about eight miles the route led us over rough and rugged hills, and along the winding of deep ravines. At one o'clock P. M. we hal
