Still the Fifth Corps got in enough to lose ten thousand six hundred and eighty-six men in the first two fights. (Dana's report, War Records, Serial 64, p. 71.) Even more light is turned on.

He pushes on, carrying the Southside Road at Sutherland's the day before. The right of the enemy's entrenchments on the Claiborne Road after they were driven in on the afternoon of March 31st was by no means strongly held.
