[90] abandon the fort, the men formed a line about seven hundred yards from the fort, under the command of Capt. Luis F. Emilio, —the ninth captain in the line; the other captains were either killed or wounded. The regiment then held the front until relieved by the Tenth Connecticut at about two o'clock A. M. of the 19th.

The assault was made upon the south face of the fort. So many of the officers behaved with marked coolness and bravery, I cannot mention any above the others. It is due, however, to the following-named enlisted men that they be recorded above their fellows for especial merit:—

Sergt. Robt. J. SimmonsCo. B.
Sergt. William H. Carney Co. C.
Corp. Henry F. PealCo. F.
Pvt. Geo. WilsonCo. A.
