lla, at noon Sunday, the infantry were sent to that post by railroad. Next day I turned over my infantry and cavalry, worn out with toil and watching, to General McNeil, to garrison Rolla — where-upon he marched with his cavalry and that of General Sanborn, and my battery, to the defense of Jefferson City. Tuesday I got an escort of forty men, and passing in the rear of the enemy, reached St. Louis, with the members of my staff, Wednesday night. Our loss at Pilot Knob was about two hundredave them, rejoicing in their success, while we brush away a tear for the poor fellows who were left behind, hushed in the silence of death. The garrison at Rolla was relieved and immediately started for Jefferson City with Generals McNeil and Sanborn at its head. They have no doubt reached that point in safety ere this; if not, they have given Price a touch of their quality, which he will not forget, more than he will forget Rosecrans at Corinth, or Ewing in Arcadia Valley.

On the day before Sanborn had orders to move, with all his mounted forcl attacks, on the approach of a detachment of Sanborn's cavalry, the rebels left him, and he escapender orders to assume command, despatched General Sanborn with all the available cavalry, four thou turned on Pleasonton, and for a moment shook Sanborn's brigade, but by the skilful use of Thurber'rrive in time to take part in the battle; but Sanborn's brigade led in the pursuit of the routed enide of the Arkansas, and recommended that Generals Sanborn and McNeill follow, to support Curtis' try horses were fresher than ours, supported by Sanborn and McNeill, on their way down the State linethe twenty-eighth, but was being worsted when Sanborn, having marched one hundred and two miles in reparing the city for a good defence, and General Sanborn for vigilance, energy and soldierly judgm[8 more...]
