6th Texas Infantry, killed 8, wounded 24, missing 21; 24th Texas Cavalry (dismounted), killed 12, wounded 17, missing 25; 25th Texas Cavalry (dismounted), killed 2, wounded 8; Hart's Battery, killed 3, wounded 13, missing 22; Denson's Cavalry, wounded 2. Total, killed 25, wounded 64, missing 68; total, killed, wounded and missing, 157. All the horses pertaining to Hart's Battery were either killed or wounded.

From all the evidence that I can obtain on the subject of the white flag, which thus treacherously deceived the command, it was raised in Wilks' 24th Regiment of Texas Cavalry (dismounted), and the interest of the service, as well as justice, demands a thorough investigation at the earliest date practicable.

R. R. Garland, Colonel 6th Texas Infantry, Commanding 1st Brigade, Army of Lower Arkansas and While River.
