On the 15th of August, 1855, he was made a first Lieutenant in the eighth regiment of infantry. During this fight he had no command, but was captured while on special duty, probably as an engineer. It is reported here that Col. Cogswell has expressed the wish that he be speedily exchanged, in order that he may ag
