North side.--the blood of one-third of its soldiers, twice spilled in Tennessee, crimsons the battle-flag of the brigade, and inspires it to greater deeds. Killed at Stone's River, December 31, 1862, Lieutenant-Colonel George T.
e Nineteenth Iowa in the first charge, a true and gallant soldier, sleeps his last sleep. Lieut.-Col. Black, Thirty-seventh Illinois, Major Thompson, Twentieth Iowa, and a large number of line-officould like to mention, but will have to refer you to the reports of brigade commanders. Of Lieut.-Col. Black, Thirty-seventh Illinois infantry, I must say that a braver man never went upon the battlecrossing the Arkansas River. Col. McFarland, of the Nineteenth Iowa regiment, is killed. Col. Black of the Thirty-seventh Illinois, and Major Thomas of the Twentieth Iowa regiment, and a large n the Nineteenth Iowa, and Major Bredett, of the Seventh Missouri; and among the badly wounded, Col. Black, of the Thirty-seventh Illinois, Major Thompson, of the Twentieth Iowa, and Lieut. De la Hunt,more than eighty yards distant. Yet cool as we were, thus engaged, our commanding officer, Lieut.-Col. Black, than whom there is no braver Man or more skilful officer in this army, discovering that t
back with heavy loss. I then moved forward beyond my original position, keeping open a heavy fire upon him. When we halted, we were five hundred yards in advance of our original position, and occupying the ground of our former picket-line, which position we held until dark, when, being relieved, we returned to our position occupied before the engagement, having lost, in the two days engagement, eight killed, fifty wounded, and twenty-two missing--the names you will find attached. Chaplain W. H. Black deserves especial praise for the manner in which he acted, being always at his post, and rendering aid and comfort to the wounded, both while the fight was going on and during the two succeeding nights. Dr. A. M. Morrison also deserves great praise for his kindness and attention to the wounded at all hours, day and night. My officers, line and staff, acted with great coolness and bravery, with a few exceptions, which I cannot particularize in this report. I have the honor to re
distribute commendation. To Colonel Merrill, in command of the force, I am under high obligations for his prudent firmness and good dispositions. Lieutenant-Colonel Dunlap, Twenty-first Iowa, was conspicuous, much exposed and wounded. He is worthy of high praise. Lieutenant-Colonel Parke, commanding Ninety-ninth Illinois, and Major Crandall of same corps, won honor and did their whole duty. Major Duffield, commanding the cavalry forces, is also to be mentioned in warm terms. But Captain Black, commanding the Third Missouri cavalry, made for himself a most enviable reputation; thirteen shot-holes in his coat sufficiently indicate where he was — in the hottest of the fire. I respectfully commend him to your attention, and that of Governor Gamble, for one of the vacant field commissions in his regiment, which he has so nobly earned. I should be unjust, did I omit to mention Captain Lemon, of the same regiment, who, at the head of his men, held a most exposed post, and had seve
