H. Miller, who had been for some time with the rebel army, and came in with Jenkins and got trapped at home; E. A. Smith, who was seen firing with a revolver on our soldiers in the street; John S.

On the extreme left was Captain Langhorn Wister, the scion of a true family, whose brave men from Perry were more exposed than any others to the enemy's fire there, but afterward were foremost to repulse the movement against our flank. By naming next in order Lieut.
