ng along the south side of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, and soon encountered a heavy force of the enemy, whom, after a fierce contest, he drove before him. Soon afterwards he was reinforced by two regiments of Cabell's brigade, under Colonels Johnson and Dockery.
The advance was then resumed, and Moore soon became hotly engaged with the enemy, occupying a field-work, or intrenched camp.
This he carried by assault, capturing the camp and its stores.
Phifer, advancing, was met near the begin.
I cannot, however, refrain from acknowledging my obligations to Captain Wm. B. Pittman, for his promptness in carrying an order through the field when the very atmosphere seemed filled with shot, shell, grape, and canister; also to Major Theo. Johnson, who acted as voluntary aid, and who conveyed orders with great despatch through the hottest firing regardless of danger.
Your obedient servant, Martin E. Green. Brigadier-General, commanding Division.
