nant Boag, Mannigault's battalion; Captain King, First South Carolina artillery, and regret that I have not the names of many who distinguished themselves, nor of those gallant officers who yielded up their lives in their country's service on this occasion. I hope. to forward a complete list with the reports of the subordinate commanders. To my personal staff is due the testimony of my appreciation of their gallantry and efficiency. Major P. W. Page, my Adjutant-General, was severely, and Captain Reid, Aid-de-Camp, slightly wounded, whilst faithfully and ably discharging their duty; Captain Matthews, Engineer Officer; Captain Penin Kemp, Lieutenant Henry C. Cunningham, Ordnance Officer, temporarily with General Elliott, and Lieutenant George Harrison, Signal Officer, gallantly and well seconded my efforts during the two days of our engagement with the enemy at Averysboroa. I have the honor to be, your obedient servant, William B. Taliaferro, Commanding Taliaferro's division.

Sixth. Adjutant S. H. M. Byers, in a pamphlet entitled What I Saw in Dixie; or, Sixteen Months in Rebel Prison, says: The boys, too, were spreading the conflagration by firing the city in a hundred places. The boys seem to have done that night exactly as General Sherman told General Halleck they generally did, that is, do their work up pretty well; for no one should complain of a hundred separate applications of the incendiary torch as not being pretty well in its way. Seventh. Mr. Whitelaw Reid's Ohio in the war says of this destruction of Columbia: It was the most monstrous barbarity of the barbarous march. This opinion bears upon the character of the act, not upon the question of who did it. Eighth. Before the Mixed Claims Commission scores of witnesses testified to the fact that the soldiers of Sherman's army set fire to the city in hundreds of places; that they carried about torches, kerosene or petroleum balls, and buckets of the inflammable fluid, lighting fires wh
