ars and rifle-pits on the opposite bank of the river. Our artillery now opened fire upon the enemy, and under cover of a hundred guns the engineers again returned to their work, and were again repulsed with terrible slaughter. At this point of affairs, Gen. Getty came to our camp and called for volunteers from the Eighth to join the engineers in one more effort to complete the bridge. About ninety of our men immediately offered their services, and under the command of Capt. Marsh and Lieuts. Ford and Morgan, proceeded to the bridge and commenced the work; but after laying one length of the bridge they were ordered to retire by Major Spalding of the engineers, after suffering a loss of two men wounded. On the morning of the twelfth we were ordered by Col. Harland to join our brigade, which was about crossing into the city by the middle bridge. We crossed about sunset and took our position in Caroline street, tacked arms, and remained until the morning of the thirteenth, when we

M., December twenty-fifth, I again ordered the Twelfth Kentucky cavalry, Col. Shanks, to Cave City and beyond to Bear Wallow, with the first and second battalions; the third, under Major Stout, being ordered on the Greensburgh road to Burnt Bridge Ford, north of (Green River, and two companies each, Fourth and Fifth Indiana cavalry, Col. J. P. Gray, on the Burksville road, south of (Green River, with instructions to each to give battle, and if overpowered by largely superior forces, to skirmish Louisville. I also telegraphed that it was Morgan's design to attack the tunnel and the works beyond. At nine o'clock P. M., the twenty-fifth, scouts brought the information that one hundred of the enemy were crossing the river at Burnt Bridge Ford. This was confirmed during the night by reports that the whole force was crossing and moving in the direction of Hammondsville. I immediately ordered Captain Dickey, of the Second Michigan, to proceed to Bacon Creek stockade, reporting to my hea
hter-pen, and the position at Skinner's Neck was open to this cardinal objection. Not so with the several positions on the Upper Rappahannock. At United States Ford, Banks's Ford, and elsewhere, the bluff runs down almost to the water's edge, whence there is an abrupt ascent up the height to the plateau on its top. Moreover, abelow than they had above; and these considerations determined the choice of some of the fords of the Upper Rappahannock as the point of traverse. United States Ford, ten miles above Fredericksburgh, was selected as the point. Happily a far greater degree of secrecy than we had hitherto succeeded in preserving as to our projecouts from the other side of the river determined a day's delay, and, at the last moment, the plan was changed. Instead of attempting the crossing at United States Ford, Gen. Burnside resolved to make it at Banks's Ford--four miles below — and the movement was put off for another day. On Wednesday morning the crossing would take p
enty-three men, attacked near Romney a supply-train of twenty-seven wagons, guarded by about one hundred and fifty cavalry and infantry, routed the guard, captured seventy-two prisoners, and one hundred and six horses, with equipment, etc., and though hotly pursued, returned to his camp with his captives without the loss of a man This is the third feat of the same character in which Captain McNeil has displayed skill and daring. 6. Gen. W. F. Lee, with a section of his artillery, under Lieut. Ford, on twenty-fifth February, attacked two of the enemy's gunboats at Tappahannock, and drove them down the river, daming them, but suffering no loss on his part. 7. Gen. Fitz-Hugh Lee, with a detachment of four hundred of his brigade, crossed the swollen waters of the Rappahannock on the twenty-fifth of February, reconnoitred the enemy's lines to within a few miles of Falmouth, broke through his outposts, fell upon his camps, killed and wounded many, took one hundred and fifty prisoners,

At three o'clock A. M. of the sixth, was put en route for the rear, crossing United States FordFord about five A. M., marching to our old camp, which we reached between eleven and twelve. Where all, both officers and men, behaved so gallantly, it would seem invidious to particularize, and as it les, and joined the brigade about ten o'clock on the morning of the thirtieth, near United States Ford. About twelve o'clock M. of the same day, the brigade crossed the ford on pontoons, this regimenpast 2 o'clock, the regiment fell back with the brigade, and recrossed the river at United States Ford, and after a continued march of about twelve hours. returned to its old camp near Falmouth, Va.
