Colonel Lytle led several companies of Irish to charge the battery, when he was brought down by a shot in the leg. Colonel Smith's Thirteenth Ohio engaged the rebels on the left, and Colonel Lowe's Twelfth Ohio directly in the front. Lowe fell dead at the head of his regiment early in the hottest fire, by a ball in the forehead.

Some days ago, General McClellan gave directions that the flags of the Seventy-ninth should be restored to the regimening drawn up in line, facing each other, the colors were saluted, and then transferred from the Vermont to the Highland regiment.
