[207] great gallantry in the presence of General Lee, and were complimented by him on the field. Under Wooten they established a still more glorious reputation — especially in their first dash at the enemy's picket line, which called forth a complimentary communication from superior Headquarters; in their double-quick deployments and advance and captures in the battle at Jones's farm; in their sudden rush into the enemy's disordered ranks and large captures at the Pegram house, and in the part they bore in the recapture of the hill taken from us the day of Gordon's attack on Fort Steadman. They also behaved with great gallantry when Grant broke our lines at Petersburg, and on the retreat to Appomattox Courthouse they were frequently thrown forward to fight the enemy when the brigade was not engaged.
