prisoners captured by the brigade thirty-seven officers and five hundred and thirty-five men. The individual cases of gallantry and daring among the officers and men were numerous, and where all behaved so well, it is unnecessary to particularize. I cannot conclude this report without paying a tribute of admiration to the bearing and dauntless courage of Brigadier-General Kershaw and his brave Palmetto boys, who have so long and so often fought side by side with the Mississippi troops. The gallant and heroic daring with which they met the shock of battle, and irresistibly drove back the Federal hosts, merits the highest encomiums and lasting gratitude of the army and the country. Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Benjamin G. Humphreys, Brigadier-General Commanding.
