s long, wearisome campaign the officers and men were ever eager to obey all orders of their superior officers, doing their full duty at all times as patriot soldiers. Not an exception can be mentioned. In the death of Capt. Robert Hale, Company I, the regiment has lost one of its best officers, the country a valiant and patriotic soldier. He was respected and beloved by all who knew him, brave and fearless. He was wounded at Fort Donelson, again twice at Stone's River, and received his mortal wound on the 4th of July. He died as he had lived, a Christian soldier and a gentleman. Herewith I inclose a list of the casualties during the campaign, which is as follows: Commissioned officers-killed, I; wounded, 4. Enlisted men-killed, 11; wounded, 59 ; total, 75. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, John E. Bennett, Colonel, Commanding Seventy-fifth Illinois Vols. Capt. H. W.

Lane, has been with the regiment during the campaign, ever ready for his duty in front line, as well as reserve. Capt. James Cunningham rendered valuable service as acting field officer.

vening of July 20 Sergeants Kennedy and Childs, with twenty men, captured 43 rebels from their picket-line and 1 commissioned officer. Many other daring acts of gallantry I might mention if time would permit. The medical staff of my regiment was always found at their posts, ready and willing to alleviate the sufferings of the wounded of all regiments. Too much praise cannot be given them for their unceasing labors. I am pained to record the death of Capt. D. C. Hodsden, who was wounded before Kenesaw Mountain. Major Carter and all the line officers of the regiment have my warmest thanks for their untiring services from the commencement of the campaign. The regiment lost 28 killed and 83 wounded and 2 missing, and the regiment captured from the enemy 5 commissioned officers and 288 enlisted men and several hundred stand of small-arms. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, I. C. B. Suman, Colonel Ninth Indiana Veteran Volunteer Infantry. [Capt. H. W. Lawton.]

The casualties of the regiment at this place were 1 commissioned officer killed and 1 severely wounded, and 11 enlisted men wounded. We remained at this place until the night of the 5th, when we withdrew and marched to Jonesborough, where we remained until the 7th.

Submitting the above, I am, sir, respectfully, your obedient servant, Thos. E. Rose, Colonel, Commanding Regiment. [Capt. H. W. Lawton.]
