came upon him as above related, while the infantry and remaining cavalry, although advancing from different points, did not come in time to take part in the action, nor was it necessary. The Springfield men moved forward, accompanied some distance on the way by the cavalry. A truck broke down a mile this side of the battle ground, and while repairing, they were overtaken and passed by General Wyman and the four companies of infantry, en route for their camp. Our loss was one killed--Henry Tucker, of Springfield, belonging to Wood's Kansas Rangers. He and one other belonging to Captain Wood's company were present.
