my three brigades, and to ask for their promotions, at least by brevet, to the rank of Brigadier-General. I have also to request that Colonel B. D. Fearing, Ninety-second Ohio volunteers, an officer of surpassing merit, and the only other full colonel who made the campaign with the division, may be promoted to the same grade. To my staff-officers, I am again deeply indebted, and I beg to renew the recommendations which I have heretofore given for their promotion. I am, sir, very respectfully,
A. Baird, Brigadier-General Commanding Division.
