[375] of the line fell killed or wounded in one fight or the other. Lieutenant Hermon H. Perry, Brigade Inspector and Acting Adjutant had his horse shot under him. Owen T. Thweatt, one of my couriers had his horse shot under him. Joseph D. Bethuye, another, had. his horse shot under him, and was at the same time himself wounded The remaining courier, S. Sligh, was knocked from his horse by a piece of shell, which, however, only bruised him. Hardly a man or officer escaped without a touch of his person or clothes. Colonel Waddell of the Twentieth, Major Shannon of the Fifteenth, Major Charlton of the twenty-three field officers left, set a shining example to their men, as did those that were wounded.

A list of the casualties has already been forwarded, also a tabular statement of the strength of the brigade on each day.

I am, Captain, very respectfully,

Your obedient servant,
