[206] chasing them away in a moment, killing and wounding a number and capturing several horses. This was the first repulse that this column met with and their advance was first checked by this regiment. When they fled from us they encountered several other regiments who were coming up from different points, and suffered greatly from their fire.

During the first day's fight, a large number of prisoners were passed to the rear through the lines of the regiment, but in the eagerness of our attack no guard was sent with them to the rear and I cannot give the number.

According to my observation the enemy's loss was five times as great as ours.

Very respectfully, &c.,

Geo. Hillyer, Captain Commanding Ninth Ga. Regiment.
