d he regarded the bill as unexceptionable. General Sykes, commanding a corps in the army of the Potomac, said: In its main provisions it is identical of Order Eighty-five, of this army, August twenty-fourth, 1863. The system established in those orders has been tested, and found highly satisfactory. General Sedgwick, commanding the Sixth corps, of the army of the Potomac, said of the bill: It is essentially the same as now organized in this army, and has been found to work admirably. General French, another corps commander of the army of the Potomac, says: The system, as embodied in the bill, is almost practically perfect. General Pleasonton, who commanded the cavalry of the army of the Potomac, said of the bill: I am very glad to find it so nearly accords with the system adopted for the service in this army. The experience of the past eighteen months has shown that the necessities of the service will be fully met by the provisions of your bill. While it provides in the most amp

observe that none but our brigade took part in the fight. Of officers and men twelve hundred and six were taken. The rest were killed, wounded, or escaped. Of the number not taken there were probably four hundred, and one hundred and fifty or two hundred escaped; fifty or sixty killed and wounded. The enemy were all cavalry and mounted infantry, but all fought on foot, every fourth man holding four horses, and his force consisted of six brigades, under Major-General Van Dorn, Brigadier-Generals French, Armstrong, Crosby, Martin, and Jackson. Infantry had no chance to escape after the fight once began. Prisoners of war! I had supposed that soldiers taken in fair battle were treated as gentlemen, at least as human beings; but such is not the practice in this cursed land. I will state simply the facts. We were taken in the afternoon, after four hours fighting, and marched fourteen miles to Columbia. On the way the men had to wade the creek, over knee deep, and to ferry ac

Captain: I have the honor to submit the following as a report of the operations of the brigade under my command in the battle of the nineteenth and twentieth instant: The night of the eighteenth instant I bivouacked, with three regiments of the brigade (the Sixty-third Virginia, Major French commanding, having been detached the day before as a guard to the division ordnance train), on the right bank of the Chickamauga. At daylight, on the morning of the nineteenth, I was ordered to cross the Chickamauga at Dalton's Ford, and at about eight o'clock I formed line of battle in a corn field, on the left of Brown's brigade, Stewart's division, and three hundred yards in rear of Gracie's brigade, the Fifty-eighth North Carolina, Colonel J. B. Palmer commanding, forming the right;
a little east of the Canton road, to a point south of the town, within a short distance of Pearl River, and covered most of the approaches west of the river; but were badly located and constructed, presenting but a slight obstacle to a vigorous assault. The troops promptly took their assigned positions in the intrenchments on the appearance of the enemy, in expectation of an immediate assault. Major-General Loring occupying the right; Major-General Walker, the right of the centre; Major-General French, the left of the centre, and Major-General Breckinridge the left. The cavalry, under Brigadier-General Jackson, was ordered to observe and guard the fords of Pearl River above and below the town. The reports that had at various times been made to me by the commanding officers of troops encamped near Jackson, of the scarcity of water, led me to believe that Sherman, who advanced in heavy order of battle from Clinton, could not besiege, but would be compelled to make an assault.

June, by the expiration of the terms of service of many of the regiments which had not re-enlisted. In this way we fell back to Cassville, in two marches. At Adairsville, about midday on the seventeenth, Polk's cavalry, under Brigaadier-General Jackson, met the army, and Hardee, after severe skirmishing, checked the enemy. At this point, on the eighteenth, Polk's and Hood's corps took the direct road to Cassville — Hardee's that by Kingston. About half the Federal army took each road. French's division having joined Polk's corps on the eighteenth, on the morning of the nineteenth, when half the Federal army was near Kingston, the two corps at Cassville were ordered to advance against the troops that had followed them from Adairsville — Hood's leading on the right. When this corps had advanced some two miles, one of his staff officers reported to Lieutenant-General Hood that the enemy was approaching on the Canton road in rear of the right of our original position. He drew back
