ly mention one in particular without doing injustice to the rest. I must, however, mention First Sergeant Willis H. Pettit, whose services in keeping my guns supplied with ammunition, and various duties, were invaluable. Joseph E. De Wolfe, clerk and private orderly, as usual, showed a clear head and unsurpassed courage, and was always found where the fight was thickest, ready to carry orders, assist in taking out and putting in horses, etc. I must also give great credit to private Frank Williams, who, with great courage and skill, saved my five remaining caissons, which were at one time cut off and in the rebel lines. My loss of men was six killed, seventeen wounded, two paroled and one missing. I remain, sir, your obedient servant, Captain A. K. Bush, Commander Fifth Indiana Battery, To Captain Hescock, Chief of Artillery, Sheridan's Division. Major Hamrick's report. headquarters Twenty-Third regiment Kentucky infantry, camp in front of Murfreesboro, Tenn., Jan
had failed so miserably in their duty as support to the Battery, lay huddled under the works, too terrified even to stand. It may be imagined that our feelings were bitter enough when we learned, some months afterward, that one of the New York papers, in its account of the battle, had stated that the Fourth New York Heavy Artillery had manned the runs of our Battery after we had fled. There was, however, one exception to the poltroonery which most of these poor creatures displayed: Major Frank Williams, of the above regiment, rallied about a score of his men, and charged upon the vastly superior force of the enemy with the utmost gallantry; but bravery was of no avail: all of his party were soon killed or captured. The enemy continued firing as they bore down upon us, and it seemed to be their intention to kill us all; and, as we had no weapons, we could only stand up and take it. A Rebel, at the distance of fifty feet, drew his rifle to his shoulder and aimed in such a direction

miles further on at the Ford over Peters creek, where Col. Finny was. We were two hours there, and allowed full liberty to walk about as we pleased. There were found five of our men, who had just been taken, all from Cleveland but one, viz: Frank Williams, Andrew Scovill, (whose brother is here, wounded in the hip,) a Mr. Burt, a Mr. Bandell, and one whose name I do not remember, a German. Poor fellows, weary and hungry, they had come in from the woods to get something to eat and were captured. I could sympathize especially with Williams, as he has a wife and two children. The brave fellow had but little to say, but I saw that a word would bring the tears into his eyes. Before we left we saw them seated at a bountiful table, which their captors had kindly provided for them; and we saw that in all other respects they were kindly and respectfully treated. After a delay of two hours, word came that we could proceed to the next encampment. A squad of cavalry took us in charge,
