[59] great bravery, and giving additional evidence of their efficiency as Staff Officers.

I am unable to give our exact loss at Petersburg. I surrendered at this point fifty-six officers and four hundred and eighty-four men, many of the latter being detailed non-armsbearing men, who were sent back, to be surrendered with their brigade.

Your obedient servant,

James H. Lane, Brigadier-General. Major Jos. A. Engelhard, Assistant Adjutant-General.
