putting in one hundred and twenty fresh mules. I replaced the horses of the ambulances, six in number, with good mules. I also put into the ordnance train, which for the time being was assigned to the train of my brigade, thirty fresh animals. I also supplied the regiments with the proper number of pack-mules, sixty in number. Officers, who were entitled to horses, have been supplied with good ones, in all cases where their own had become worn out and useless.

I therefore do not hesitate to assert that the six guns of Randall's battery were shamefully abandoned
ight at South Mountain; but the men advanced with alacrity, secured a good position, and were fighting bravely, when Captain Thompson, Fifth North Carolina, cried out, They are flanking us! This cry spread like an electric shock along the ranks, bri; Lieutenants Underwood and Cleaveland, of the Eighteenth Georgia; Lieutenants Huffman, Russell, Waterhouse, Patton, and Thompson, of the First Texas. These brave officers all fell while gallantly leading their small bands on an enemy five times the I got there too late in the evening to be able to give any report of the battle. In it, however, we lost no guns. Captain Thompson's (then Captain D'Aquin's) battery captured one ten-pounder Parrott, which they brought off. In recrossing the Potom men. The service has lost no braver officer. My casualties were: Killed: First Lieutenant I. W. Brewer; privates, Thompson, McDonald, and Dolan--4. Wounded: Corporal P. W. Pettiss; privates James Tully, Levy, Bourshee, Maxwell, Crilly, Kerw
