[138] thirty-one wounded, a list of whom will accompany this report. The confederates left twelve dead on the ground, whom we buried. They removed their wounded, of which many traces were on the ground and in the house. Among their dead was one captain and two lieutenants. We took only one prisoner, whom I sent to the Provost-Marshal.

I have the honor to be your obedient servant,

W. T. Sherman, Brig.-Gen. Commanding Division. Headquarters Department Mississippi, Camp Corinth Roads, Mississippi, May 22, 1862.
