The Seventeenth corps meanwhile moved up abreast of Station No. 2, having much corduroying to do and many obstructions to clear away. After reaching the canal, I returned to the Station No. 2, and communicated with General Sherman in person.

My losses during the incessant fighting for three days and nights were not large. From information gained from scouts, prisoners, and deserters, the loss of the enemy is estimated at six hundred (600) killed and wounded. The following day we joined the left wing of our army at Louisville. Here we remained in camp several days, resting the men and horses for the first time during the march.
