eptions above made, we had one hundred and seventy-three casualties in the division, nearly all from the artillery fire of the Yankees. My thanks are due to all my staff for faithful and efficient services. Major J. W. Ratchford and Major Archer Anderson, Adjutant-General's staff; Major Jones, commanding battalion of artillery; Captain Carter, Chief of Artillery; Captain M. L. Randolph, Signal Officer; Lieutenant R. H. Morrison, Aid-de-camp; Lieutenant E. F. Brevard, Volunteer Aid; Lieutenants Harris and Estelle, Ordnance Officers; Mr. Arthur Chichester, Engineer Officer; Sergeant Harmeling, commanding the couriers,--all rendered valuable and important service. I cannot speak too highly of the steadiness of my men under fire, their confidence of victory and eagerness to lend their efforts to achieve it, their patient endurance of a fatiguing march the night before the battle, and their general subordination and good conduct. Under tried veterans as brigade commanders — Rodes, C
ywood, Lieutenant-Colonels George and Ashcroft, and Major Davidson, in the charge of Sunday morning. After the loss of so many field officers, Major Barry and Captains Harris, Saunders, Brown, and Nicholson rendered me great assistance. Captain Saunders, in his official report, calls special attention to the efficiency of Lieutenathe enemy in heavy force drawn up in line of battle on the furnace road; this line was soon broken by the vigorous onset of my skirmishers, (at this time Lieutenant-Colonel Harris, commanding the Twelfth, was severely wounded while gallantly leading on his command, and was taken off the field.) I continued my advance across the furttacked the enemy's works on their extreme right; Colonel Jayne, of the Forty-eighth, (who was wounded in the charge,) next; Major Thomas, of the Twelfth, and Colonel Harris on the right of the brigade. These commanders simultaneously charged the enemy's works, and I am much indebted to them for the success of my command. My com
ed off a large number on horses and in ambulances. We captured twenty-nine prisoners — a captain, two lieutenants, and twenty-six privates. My own loss was eleven killed, eighty-eight wounded, and thirty-four taken prisoners, making an aggregate of one hundred and thirty-three. In horses, seventy-one killed, eighty-seven wounded, twelve captured, making an aggregate loss of horses one hundred and seventy. Among the killed, I deeply regret to report Major Puller, of the Fifth, and Lieutenant Harris, of the Fourth. Both gallant and highly efficient officers — a heavy loss to their regiments and country. In conclusion, I desire especially to state that Major-General J. E. B. Stuart joined me before the fight commenced, was on the field the whole day, assisted immensely by his sagacious counsels, large experience, and by his usual daring and conspicuous example, in turning the fortunes of the day in our favor. We share with him the anguish and deep grief felt at the loss of the
attack made by Trigg and Kelly, Colonel Hawkins, of the Fifth Kentucky, a brave and skilful officer of Kelly's brigade, captured two Colonels, one Lieutenant-Colonel, a number of company officers, and two hundred and forty-nine prisoners. The Twenty-second Michigan, the Eighty-ninth Ohio, and part of the Twenty-first Ohio regiments were captured by Trigg's and Kelly's brigades, and five stands of colors were taken by Sergeant Timmons, of the Seventh Florida regiment, and by Privates Heneker, Harris, Hylton, and Carter, of the Fifty-fourth Virginia. Colonels Carleton, Lefebvre, and Lieutenant-Colonel Glenn were among the prisoners. The next morning about four thousand five hundred stands of arms, which had been thrown away by the flying enemy, were secured by my command. I learned that Steadman's division and troops from General Granger's reserve corps held the heights attacked by my division, and from captured artillerists, at Snodgrass' house, that the hill had been occupied by a

y's and Smith's divisions, while the troops which had been engaged in the battles of the sixteenth and sevententh were bivouacked in rear of the intrenchments. During these battles the troops of Major-General Forney's division were disposed as follows: Brigadier-General Hebert's brigade occupied the line along the Yazoo River, from Haines' Bluff to the Mississippi, including the approaches by Chickasaw Bayou. Brigadier-General Moore's brigade, with the Mississippi State troops, under General Harris, attached (about six hundred), guarded the river-front at Warrenton, and the approaches from the lower ferries on Big Black River. Brigadier-General Shoupe's brigade, of Major-General Smith's division, guarded the river-front of the city. Brigadier-General Baldwin's brigade, with Waul's Legion attached, guarded the approaches to the city from the Hall's Ferryroad around to the Railroad Bridge on the Big Black; the heavy artillery at the batteries on the river-front, under Colonel Higgin
e was as follows: Of the ten batteries that have been in use, three were mostly completed, and the fourth begun. The armed troops present consisted of the remnant of the Eighth Louisiana battalion, Lieutenant-Colonel Pinckney, and the Twenty-seventh Louisiana volunteers, Colonel Marke; both of my brigades which had preceded me some six or ten days. Colonel J. L'Antry, ordered here by General Bragg, was found in command, pushing the works forward vigorously through his Chief Engineer, Captain D. B. Harris, who afterwards remained with me in the same capacity until most of the works were completed. From the twelfth until the eighteenth, the works were pushed forward night and day with all possible vigor, at the end of which the First division of the Federal fleet, together with transports, carrying some three thousand men, made their appearance and found us in a condition to dispute, with a fair prospect of success, a further advance; that is to say, six batteries were complete, the ca
