Colonel Tyler's force was 900, and was surrounded at breakfast time. 200 are missing. After a desperate fight they were cut through and scattered. The following Federal officers are known to have been killed: Captains Dye, Shurtliff and Sterling, Adjutant L. DeForest, Lieutenant Warrentz, Sergeant-Major Long and others; all the Federal field officers were not hurt. The Confederate forces are reported to have been 3,000 strong, including 400 cavalry. Their loss was heavy. [Of course the latter statement is a mere speculation of the enemy.]
