Doc. 192.-battle of New-Ulm, Minn. Official report of Captain Flandrau. St. Peter, Aug. 27, 1862. His Excellency, Gov. Alexander Ramsey: sir: Events have transpired so rapidly, and my time has been so taken up since my last communication, that I cannot with certainty recall the condition of things existing at its date, but believe I wrote you almost immediately preceding the second attack upon New-Ulm, which occurred on Saturday last. During the morning, we discovered a succession of fires on the Nicollet county side of the river, very near the bluffs, approaching us from the direction of Fort Ridgely. Our supposition was, that the Fort had fallen, and the Indians were moving down upon the town, on that side of the river, to unite with another party on the side we were occupying. As they increased in numbers very rapidly, I thought it best to send a detachment over, to ascertain the design of the enemy, and if possible, give him a check on that side of the river.
Doc. 209.-the battle with the Sioux. Colonel Sibley's despatch. Wood Lake, near Yellow Medicine, September 23. To His Excellency, Gov. Ramsey: sir: I left the camp at Fort Ridgley on the nineteenth inst., with my command, and reached this point early in the afternoon of the twenty-second. There have been small parties of Indians each day in plain sight, evidently acting as scouts for the main body. This morning I had determined to cross the Yellow Medicine River, about three miles distant, and there await the arrival of Capt. Rogers's company of the Seventh regiment, which was ordered by me from New-Ulm, to join me by a forced march, the presence of the company there being unnecessary by the arrival there of another company, a few days previous. About seven o'clock this morning, the camp was attacked by about three hundred Indians, who suddenly made their appearance and dashed down toward us, whooping and yelling in their usual style, and firing with great rapidity.
