Among the officers we give the following: Colonels W. C. Raulston, Twenty-fourth New York; S. Warner, One Hundred and Twenty-first Pennsylvania. Lieutenant-Colonel Theodore Gregg, Forty-fifth Pennsylvania. Majors John G. Wright, Fifty-first New York; William H. Mapes, Second New York; James T. Peale, Fourth Pennsylvania cavalry, and E. S.

Three hundred were also added to the number on Belle Isle.
