Several squadrons of the enemy's cavalry charged through the pickets of a Texas regiment and were galloping up to one of our batteries with the evident purpose of spiking the guns, when they were met by a charge of the 9th Georgia regiment, killing and wounding a number. This was the first check this column met with. On their retreat they encountered several other regiments coming up from different points, and suffered greatly from their fire.

Early next morning the brigade was moved back to the main line, and threw up breastworks.

The reports of regimental commanders, together with the complete list of the killed and wounded, have already been forwarded. It would be invidious to speak of individual gallantry where all Behaved so well.

I am, Major, very respectfully, Your obedient servant,

W. W. White, Colonel, Commanding Brigade.
