his valuable services.
This gallant regiment, which has never been surpassed by any troops in the world, for gallantry, subordination, and propriety, was commanded by the heroic Captain Marsh, and, after his fall, by the equally heroic Captain Latham, who shared the same fate.
All the officers of this noble regiment, present at Sharpsburg, were killed or wounded.
Their names deserve to be preserved.
Captains Marsh, Latham, and Osborne, Lieutenants Stansill, Colton, Allen, Parker, Brown, Weaver, Crawford, and Bonner, Sergeants John Troutman, and J. W. Shinn, Corporals J. A. Cowan, and H. H. Barnes, and private J. D. Barton, of this regiment, were greatly distinguished for their courage.
Private J. B. Stinson, of same regiment, acting as courier to General Anderson, was wounded in three places at Sharpsburg, and there, as on every other battlefield, behaved most nobly.
