inety-ninth Illinois fought bravely — every man for himself.
Their wounded were all from Pike County, where the regiment was raised.
Philip Donahue, Company C, knee; Sergeant Lewis Kinman, company C, thigh; David Morris, company G, hand; Lieutenant Thomas Hubbard, company A; Sergeant Dennis Bagdley, company D, knee; Cornelius Johnson, company E, arm; Francis M. Ayers, company B; Sylvester Durrall, company E, shoulder; Wyatt M. Mitchell, company E, leg; Henry Perry, company I, shoulder; Henry Hoskins, company G, hip; Corporal H. Millard, shoulder; Nicholas Cunningham, company E, hand; Jewell Woodard, company D; Daniel Casey, company K; John Rutlidge, company C; T. J. Beard, company C; others were slightly wounded.
Lieut. Bates and Corporal McFadden, of company I, were unremitting in their efforts to supply the wants of the wounded.
We did not dare to build fires, and were obliged to cover the enemy with leaves.
May we never have cause to witness such a sad scene again.
