[708] present to the Medical Director, Department of the Cumberland:

First: That the ambulance corps organization operated as successfully in the cavalry as in the infantry corps.

Secondly; No patients were left on the roadside in the rear of the advancing forces, and all were provided for in regularly-furnished hospitals.

Two accidents arose from the magazines of the Spencer carbines exploding from being half-filled while on hot-march from concussion in one instance, the magazine was in the pouch in the other, in the stock of the carbine. The tin tubes or magazines which contain the fixed ammunition — metallic cartridges — should be therefore kept filled, four inches of play on a hot day may explode them, as evidenced in those two cases.

The greatest energy and assiduity on the part of all the medical officers was observable throughout the campaign.

F. Salter, Surgeon United States Volunteers Medical Director Cavalry Corps, M. D. M.

Names of officers and men of the cavalry corps, M. D. M., mentioned by their respective commanders for bravery and efficiency shown in the late campaign from Chickasaw, Alabama, to Macon, Georgia.
