's battalion Wheat
Wheat's battalion. --This famous body of soldiers, now with Jackson in Maryland, was represented in the battles of Saturday and Sunday by two gallant volunteers, Capt. R. A. Harris and Lieut. Foley, who were here on the sick list. Captain Harris, of company A, Wheat's battalion, rallied some of our brave troops to the charge, dashing fearlessly into the enemy's entrenchments and putting them to flight in quick time. This sort of conducts is in striking contrast to the about- town policy of some others on furlough during the hour of danger. Wheat's battalion was at Manassas, where its Major was dangerously wounded, and performed prodigies of valor on that memorable occasion. Major Wheat, a Virginian, formerly General in the Mexit memorable occasion. Major Wheat, a Virginian, formerly General in the Mexican army, and with Garibaldi in Naples, has, singularly enough, never been promoted, though others of far less military skill and renown have been visited by many honors.
