The Second brigade having come up, it was quickly thrown into position, and after a fight of two hours and thirty minutes, we routed the enemy at all points, and drove him toward the river. When within a short distance of the bridge General Buford's command came up and took the advance. We lost twenty-nine killed, thirty-six wounded, and forty missing.

Colonel Gray, commanding the regiment, was constantly seen wherever his presence was most needed, and is deserving of special mention. I desire to commend to your favorable notice Lieutenants Pennington, Clark, Woodruff, and Hamilton, of battery M, Second artillery, for the zeal and ability displayed by each on this occasion. My thanks are personally due to the following named members of my staff, who on many occasions exhibited remarka

Lieutenant Pennington at once placed his battery in position and opened athat direction before the enemy's skirmishers appeared. Pennington's battery opened upon them, while the Sixth Michigan cav thrown forward and deployed as skirmishers. One gun of Pennington's battery, supported by the First Vermont cavalry, was ptime he opened a heavy fire upon me from his artillery. Pennington's battery, aided by the Sixth Michigan cavalry, poured ack. A desperate effort was made to capture my battery. Pennington continued to fire until the enemy was within twenty yardeep, and, therefore, are fordable only at a few places.
