A. G. headquarters District of Florida, Jacksonville, June 13, 1864. Report of Acting Ensign Sanborn. United States steamer Philadelphia, Port Royal harbor, S. C., September 3, 1864. Sir: It becomes my painful and unpleasant duty to report to you the
se before dark. My artillery had all been left on the Boydton Plank-road on account of the mud, which had compelled me to do so, and General Griffin had left General Pearson there, with three regiments of infantry of General Bartlett's brigade to support it. I, therefore, sent the following dispatch to General Webb, at 6.30 P.

name of Colonel B. J. Hill, Thirty-fifth Tennesse regiment. Upon every field in the West, from Shiloh to Chickamauga, this officer has acted with conspicuous courage and coolness. I earnestly recommend his name for promotion. Colonel Smith, of Third and Fifth Confederate regiment, acted with his usual courage and skill. He has since been promoted. Promotion could not have fallen on one more worthy. Colonel Robinson, Colonel Colquitt, Colonel Nixon, Lieutenant-Colonel Holes, and Major Pearson all deserve well of their country. I respectfully refer you to reports of regimental commanders for other names distinguished for gallantry. I here return my thanks to Captain W. H. King, my Assistant Adjutant-General, and Lieutenant Schell, for efficient services rendered upon the field. A full list of the casualties in my brigade has already been sent forward. Respectfully, L.
