Taken somewhat by surprise, Orr's rifles were thrown into confusion, mistaking the advancing enemy for our own troops falling bacthe highest character. The brigade, except my own regiment, First South Carolina volunteers, and Orr's rifle regiment, was not engaged with the enemy, as they retired under the fire from my own regie bivouacked for the night.

I have also to mention Ordnance-Sergeant J. F. Baxter, wounded on the field. This man is an untiring officer and faithful to his trust.
