[478]

J. Denishon, company G, shot in the thigh.

A. Chrisler, company I, shot through the shoulder.

The name of the wounded prisoner in our hands is G. Hughes, of the Rutledge Mounted Rifles, shot through the arm and wounded in the back.

The loss of Capt. Parker is universally lamented throughout the brigade. He was in the three months service, but reenlisted, together with his entire company, at the expiration of his term of service. Modest and unassuming in his deportment, he was yet a brave and accomplished officer. His gallantry in crossing the frail bridge at Pocotaligo cost him his life. He was pierced by three rifle-balls, and fell while cheering his men on the perilous passage.

Our troops returned in excellent condition, having all re-crossed the ferry before four o'clock on the morning of the thirtieth, thus performing a march of thirty-two miles, fighting two hours, and making two difficult river-crossings, in twenty-seven hours. Their endurance, considering the heat, and the fact that the operation was undertaken at the close of the day, was remarkable.
