sleeve. He dressed the wound himself, and did not leave the field. At night the army fell back. It was about 9 P. M. when the guns and limbers were run off the hill by hand to a ravine near by, and there limbered up. In withdrawing the pieces, the Lieutenant ordered his men to drive in stakes at each embrasure, to create the impression that he was fortifying. While thus engaged, they heard a voice call out to them through the darkness from the enemy in front: It's about time now that Johnny Reb were getting away. And so he did, marching across Oostenaula river to Adairsville, which was reached on the 16th. The pontoon bridge over the Oostenaula river was covered with green corn stalks to prevent a noise as the carriages passed over. The casualties of the Third Maryland at Resaca, were three killed and fifteen wounded: Killed: Corporal B. Sanchez, privates Henry Steward, and a third whose name is lost. Wounded: Lieutenant Ritter, Sergeant L. W. Frazier, Corporals A.

This officer whose kindness I acknowledge, tendered me his note-book to write a letter to my wife, who over two years before, I had left in St. Louis.
