Lieutenant-Colonel Pearcall, assistant.
Colonel Dwight, acting-assistant inspector-general.
Lieutenant-Colonel W. B. Kinsey, 161st New York volunteers.
Lieutenant-Colonel Hubbard, 30th Maine volunteers.
Major Sawtelle, provost marshal, and Lieutenant Williamson,.ordnance officer.
The following were a portion of the regiments employed: 29th Maine, commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel Emerson; 116th New York, commanded by Colonel George M. Love; 161st New York, commanded by Captain Prentiss; 133d New York, commanded by Colonel Currie.
The engineer regiment and officers of the 13th army corps were also employed.
I feel that I have done but feeble justice to the work or the persons engaged in it. Bein
