General: After offering some considerable resistance to the advance of the enemy at this point yesterday, in accordance with the suggestions of Major-General Lee, I retired with Hampton's division slowly before the enemy, until within two miles and a half of Warrenton, in order that Major-General Lee, coming from Auburn, might have an opportunity to attack the enemy in flank and rear. The plan proved successful. The enemy followed slowly and cautiously after Hampton's division, whe

Third Indian Guards:--Lieutenant Redbird Sixkiller; mustered out May 31, 1865. The muster-rolls are provided with a column in which is entered the age of each recruit. From the figures in this column it appears that the mean age of all the soldiers was 25 years. When classed by ages, the largest class is that of 18 years, from which the classes decrease regularly to that of 45 years, beyond which age no enlistment was received. Of 1,012,273 recorded ages taken from the rolls, t
ance of an order from the President, dated Sept. 28, 1863, the Army of the Cumberland was reorganized. General Thomas succeeded Rosecrans, and Major-General John M. Palmer was placed in command of the Fourteenth Corps. Under this reorganization the corps contained three divisions,--Johnson's, Davis' and Baird's,--and each division contained three brigades. Some of the brigades contained nine regiments; but the regiments were small, and many of them sadly depleted. The corps roster on Oct. 20, 1863, showed 64 regiments of infantry, and 9 batteries of light artillery. The corps fought at Missionary Ridge, Nov. 25, 1863, where it lost 140 killed, 787 wounded, and 14 missing; total, 941. In February, 1864, it was engaged in a sharp reconnoissance at Dalton, Ga. On May 5, 1864, it moved with Sherman's Army on the advance which was to culminate in the possession of Atlanta. The Fourteenth Corps took part in the opening battle of this campaign at Resaca, and was prominently engaged
ary arrangements; the brigades proper were organized as stated. Then there was the Maryland Brigade; the Second Jersey Brigade; the Eagle Brigade — Mower's, of the Sixteenth Corps,--which carried the live eagle; Wilder's Lightning Brigade, composed of mounted infantry; and several crack brigades whose total losses, as brigades, cannot well be stated, owing to the many changes in their organizations. Here are three fine brigades, with rosters showing their organizations as they stood October 20, 1863, at the time the Army of the Cumberland was reorganized. The losses credited each regiment were incurred during their entire term of service, during which they served in other brigades and corps. These brigade organizations were not continuous and unchanged like those previously cited; they are mentioned in this connection becaust they were noted brigades.

was present at Shiloh, but not under fire. Wood's (6th) Division participated in the campaigns of the Army of the Ohio in 1862, the occupation of Tennessee, and the retreat into Kentucky. The regiment was engaged at Stone's River, where it lost 4 killed, 68 wounded, and 13 missing. The brigade was absent at Chickamauga, it having been detailed just at that time on duty at Chattanooga, and left behind as the army passed through. Upon the re-organization of the Army of the Cumberland, October 20, 1863, the regiment was assigned to Wagner's (2d) Brigade, Sheridan's (2d) Division, Fourth Corps, in which command it fought at Missionary Ridge, where it sustained a loss of 20 killed and 138 wounded; total, 158. During the Atlanta campaign, General Newton commanded the division, and in the unsuccessful assault on Kenesaw Mountain the regiment met with another severe loss, the percentage of casualties being very large. At the battle of Franklin, General Wagner commanded the division, and
