Gen. Perry's Report of the Battle of Chancellorsville. 207 gaging the enemy, was such as to merit high praise. The firm and steadfast courage exhibited, especially by the Fifth and Second Florida regiments, in the charge at Chancellorsville, attracted my particular attention.

I am indebted to Captain McCaslan, A. A. A. General, Lieutenant Taylor, aide-de-camp, Lieutenant Scott, volunteer aide-decamp, and Lieutenant Riley, Acting Inspector, for the great assistance they rendered me by their attention to their duties and gallant conduct.

My command was kept supplied with rations by the persevering energy of Major Elder, Brigade Commissary. Major Hinkle, Brigade Quastermaster, for his untiring efforts to alleviate the sufferings of the wounded who were collected at the station awaiting transportation to Richmand, has merited my particular thanks. I enclose the list of casualties.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully, &c.,

E. A. Perry, Brigadier-General P. A. C. S.
