Benson J. Lossing, Pictorial Field Book of the Civil War. Volume 3., Chapter 9: the Red River expedition. (search)
Of the soldiers, about one hundred and fifty were captured, and about one hundred were killed. The remainder took to the shore and escaped. Soon afterward, the City Belle, with a little more than four hundred Ohio troops, was captured by another guerrilla party, when about one-half of them escaped. But the army in its march for Simms' Port met with very little opposition, excepting by a considerable force of Confederate cavalry, who, at daybreak on the 16th, confronted its advance at Mansura, near Marksville, where the National skirmishers and artillery, after pushing the foe back across an open prairie to a wood, kept up a fire for about three hours, until the main body came up. A battle-line was then formed, with General Emory and his forces on the right, and General A. J. Smith and his command on the left. After a sharp but brief struggle, the Confederates were dispersed, losing a number of men by capture. Among these were some of the prisoners they had taken on the Signal

On the march to Simmsport, a Rebel cavalry force was encountered just at daybreak May 16. at Mansura, near Marksville, by our advance, and pushed steadily back across the open prairie to the woods beyond ; where a stand was made for three hours--the fighting being mainly by skirmishers and artillery — until our main body had come up, and Gen.

Y., leaving there on September 6, 1862, and journeying to Binghamton on canal boats, a long line of them being used for the purpose. Seven of the companies had been recruited in Chenango county, and three in Madison. The regiment sailed from Baltimore on November 6, 1862, for New Orleans, where it was assigned to Weitzel's Brigade, Augur's Division, Nineteenth Corps, and stationed at Brashear City, La. Its first experience under f
h Ohio volunteers, was captured by the enemy. Two hundred of the troops escaped. The fleet passed below Alexandria on the thirteenth of May. The army, on its march from Alexandria, did not encounter the enemy in force until near the town of Mansura. He was driven through the town on the evening of the fourteenth of May. At daybreak the next morning, our advance encountered his cavalry on the prairie east of the town. He fell back, with steady and sharp skirmishing, across the prairie, to a belt of woods, which he occupied. The enemy's position covered three roads, diverging from Mansura to the Atchafalaya. He manifested a determination here to obstinately resist our passage. The engagement, which lasted several hours, was confined chiefly to the artillery, until our troops got possession of the edge of the woods,--first upon our left by General Emory, and subsequently on our right by General Smith, when he was driven from the field after a sharp and decisive fight, with co

ithdrawn. On the 15th inst., these guns were employed in heavy skirmishing near Marksville and Mansura. On the 16th inst., Major-General Wharton determined to make a temporary stand and force theis force. At the request of Major-General Wharton, I made a reconnoissance of the country near Mansura and recommended to him, as suitable for the employment of artillery, the beautiful position at Mansura. He then ordered all the artillery to be put in position, and the following dispositions were made: Major Semmes, Chief of Artillery of Wharton's corps, having command on our right, placed iof the reserve battalion of the army, and exhibited in the subsequent operations at Marksville, Mansura, and the bloody combat at Norwood, the high soldierly qualities to be expected from one who had Artillery of Polignac's division, only took command in the latter days of the campaign, and at Mansura and Norwood displayed the same energy and courage that characterized him as a Captain.
