The fire upon the enemy was well-directed and destructive, and they sustained his fire with the indifference of veteran troops. The Maryland regiment was under Lieut.-Col. G. H. Steuart and Major Bradley T. Johnson; the 3d Tennessee under Col. Vaughan, Lieut.-Col. Reese, and Major Morgan, and the 10th Virginia regiment under Col. Gibbons, Lieut.-Col.

I arrived here this evening, the spirits of my men in nowise flagged. John C. Vaughan, Colonel Commanding, Third Tennessee Volunteers, Confederate States Army.
