Davidson were in the thickest of the fight, cheering their men, who behaved as gallantly as troops under the same circumstances could possibly have done.
You witnessed this conflict, however, and are probably better prepared to describe it than I am myself.
My regiment by your order bivouacked upon this hill, where we remained during the night and rose with the determination of renewing the attack, when we learned the enemy had surrendered.
Captain Beckham, Lieutenants Brown, Keith, Harrison, Myers, Briggs, Davis, and Bandy, deserve mention for their unceasing attention to their men during the whole day, and I feel proud I have received this positive evidence of their good qualities as officers.
Lieutenants Taylor and Rogers, in command of a company, behaved gallantly during the day.
Below you have a list of casualties in my regiment:
Co. A, Captain Morton Commanding. Badly wounded — John Harl, James McDonald, Samuel Graham.
Slightly wounded — Henry Hunter, Lawson Matth
