division, now numbering less than 6,000, was seriously engaged on our side; but Crocker
's division came up just after the battle was won by the advance of Stevenson
's brigade, and a splendid charge with fixed bayonets by the 8th Illinois, Lt.-Col. Sturgis
The enemy had previously been strongest in the numbers engaged, and had fought stubbornly; charging to turn the left flank of Dennis
's brigade, which was in advance, and of which the 20th Ohio, 23d Indiana, and 20th Illinois fought desperately and suffered severely.
Our loss in this affair was 69 killed (including Col. Richards
, 20th Illinois, who fell at the head of his regiment, and Maj. Kaga
, 20th Ohio), 341 wounded, and 32 missing: total 442.
The Rebels lost 103 killed, with 720 wounded and prisoners.
