On the seventeenth, the enemy's cavalry appeared on my right flank, with artillery and reported infantry, indicating a farther attempt to outflank my position; at the same time, reports from prisoners and deserters indicated a movement on the part of the enemy.

He was efficiently assisted in the duties of his position by Major Rutherford, Third South Carolina volunteers. Captain Kemper and the officers and men under his command maintained the high reputation they established at Vienna, Bull Run, and Manassas. For particular mention of such of the company officers as require especial notice, I respectfully refer to the reports of the regimental commanders, which accompany this.
