August 7, charged the enemy's works, capturing a few prisoners and advancing our lines one-quarter of a mile. Our loss in the engagement was 1 sergeant, 2 corporals, and to await the acceptation of his resignation, Capt. James Curtis relieved him. When we were drawn up in line behind our breast-works, before making the charge of August 7, I was notified that Captain Curtis had been wounded, and being the ranking officer present assumed command. From the commencement to the ending of this camp 101 enlisted men wounded, and 2 privates missing (supposed to have been captured). The greatest loss and most severe fire sustained at any one time was on the 7th of August. In that charge we were subjected to a direct oblique and enfilading fire of both artillery and musketry from the time we left our works till we took possessi

The forces under my command had been engaged from I p. m. until nearly dusk; nearly one-third of my men had been put hors de combat, and I was almost entirel to get my men forward through the fire, I deemed it necessary to give them the encouragement of my example (as indeed I had previously done, especially on the 7th of August), and so rode in front of my colors, and caused them to be successfully planted on the enemy's works, jumping my horse over them at the time they were filled w
