Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, J. M. Brockenbrough, Colonel, commanding Brigade. Report of Colonel Baldwin. Ordnance office, army of Northern Virginia, May 20, 1863. Brigadier-General R. H. Chilton, Adjutant and Inspector-General, A. N. V.: Sir: I have the honor to report the following as the principal captures in the recent engagements near Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville: Artillery.--Five twelve-pounder Napoleons; seven three-inch rifles; one ten-pounder Parrott; nine caissons; four rear parts of caissons; three battery wagons; two forges; fifteen hundred rounds artillery ammunition; a large lot of artillery harness, a large lot of wheels, axles, ammunition, chests, &c. Infantry.--Twenty-nine thousand five hundred collected, ten thousand admitted dropped by our men, nineteen thousand five hundred captured; nineteen thousand five hundred muskets and rifles eight thousand cartridge boxes; four thousand cap pouches; eleven thousand five hundred kna
assed, having been either killed or wounded, it was impossible, at the time, to retire the pieces as they were gained. Lieutenant-Colonel Reynolds, field officer of the day, with a detail from the Thirty-fourth Mississippi regiment, removed one Parrott gun to the rear, which was delivered to Major Palmer, Chief of Artillery on Major-General Walker's staff. After passing beyond the second line of the enemy I ascertained that he was turning my right flank, and, while making a disposition of mmposed in part of the Fifth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth, Sixteenth, and Twenty-first regiments regular United States army. Four hundred men and some officers belonging to these regiments were captured and safely sent to the rear, together with three Parrott guns, composing a part of Loomis' battery, designated as Company H, Fifth artillery, United States army; which were sent to the rear under charge of three men belonging to the First Louisiana regiment, and delivered to Major Palmer, Chief of Art
three eight-inch navy shell guns, two eight-inch sea-coast howitzers, one rifled twenty-four-pounder, one thirty-pounder Parrott, one twelve-pounder Whitworth, and three ten-inch sea-coast mortars, in all eleven pieces. There were on Morris Islant without inflicting any casualty on our side. On the morning of the twelfth, the enemy opened with two-hundred-pound Parrott shot and shell upon Fort Sumter from his batteries near the foot of Craig's Hill, on Morris Island, a distance of about se of the enemy quiet during the day. One man was mortally wounded at Battery Gregg. During the afternoon, the heavy Parrott guns of the enemy opened on Fort Sumter, of which several struck the gorge wall and the reinforce to the western magazingarrison must be taken away immediately after dark, or will be destroyed or captured. It is idle to deny that the heavy Parrott shell have breached the walls and are knocking away the bomb-proofs. Pray have boats immediately after dark at Cummins'
ew off, with what damage to themselves it is impossible to say. The firing from our batteries was most excellent, and too much praise cannot be awarded to Colonel Higgins, his officers and men, for their gallantry, coolness, and skill. The enemy still continued to work steadily in completing and strengthening his line of circumvallation. His fire of musketry and artillery was continuous during each day. Major Mathews, Ordnance Officer, was instructed to have the large number of unexploded Parrott shells scattered around the city sent to Paxton's foundry and re-capped. On the morning of the twenty-ninth, the enemy opened a terrific fire from the rear, and for four hours a storm of shot and shell was rained upon the city, seriously damaging many buildings, killing and wounding a large number of soldiers and citizens. During the day Ellett's marine brigade arrived and anchored at the bend above. Two couriers had arrived from General Johnston on the twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth,res
constructed intrenchment, bristling with artillery of large calibre, and supported by heavy lines of infantry. My troops charged the enemy's position with the most determined courage, exposed to a murderous fire of musketry and artillery. Without faltering they pressed forward over every obstacle, and with shouts and cheers carried, in less than twenty minutes, the entire line of works; the enemy having fled, leaving in our hands many prisoners and two pieces of artillery--one a four inch Parrott gun, the other a twenty-four-pounder howitzer. Our loss in this attack was comparatively small. This is attributable to the impetuosity with which the charge was made and the works carried. It becomes my painful duty, in this connection, to revert to the distinguished services of two gallant officers who fell in this engagement: Colonel John D. Martin, commanding a Brigade of Mississippians, and Lieutenant Samuel Farrington, of Wade's battery. Colonel Martin fell mortally wounded while
Thompson, commanding brigade, of the Second dlvision, had also been ordered to place the Third Kentucky regiment of his brigade upon a road leading out from Coffeeville to the west of the main road spoken of, in order to watch our left flank. Upon the main road and in rear of the First brigade, upon a small eminence, four pieces of artillery had been placed, being part of Captain Bouchard's company of the Point Coupee artillery; whilst at three hundred yards to the rear of this battery two Parrott guns from Captain Hedden's battery, of my own division, were placed on a still higher point, and in a position not to endanger the infantry or the battery in front, should occasion present itself to open upon the enemy. Before reaching the point at which General Lovell was stationed, I heard brisk cannonading, and on joining General Lovell, near where the tear battery was placed, found that it proceeded from our advanced, battery, which was being replied to by a rifle gun of the enemy.
