The twenty-seventh Virginia regiment.
The following list of casualties in the 27th Virginia regiment, in the battle of Port Republic

The gentleman who furnishes the foregoing says:
"When it is recollected that the 27th went into the fight with but 140 men, it will be seen at once that it suffered severely, the ratio being fully 30 per cent. All who witnessed the conduct of the regiment on this trying occasion, must admit that it was deserving of the highest praise.
and Major Shriver
had their horses killed under them, and scarcely a man in the regiment but had a hole through some portion of his dress.
The following is, I think, a correct estimate of the loss on both sides; Confederates, 600 killed and wounded; Federal, 1,000 killed and wounded, and 500 prisoners--with loss of six pieces of splendid artillery, 2,000 stand of small arms, hundreds of India
rubber blankets, &c., &c."
