burgh, Thursday, June 18, 1863. sir: I have the honor to inform you, that, hearing the enemy had collected a force of twelve thousand men at Richmond, in Louisiana, nine miles from Milliken's Bend, I sent General Ellet to General Mowry, at Young's Point, to act in conjunction to wake them up. General Mowry promptly acceded to the request, and, with about one thousand two hundred men in company with the Marine brigade, General A. W. Ellet commanding, proceeded to Richmond, where they completed Lake Providence, where Gen. Reid was stationed with a small Federal force, consisting of the First Kansas and Sixteenth Wisconsin regiments, with some negro troops, less than one thousand five hundred in all. Richmond is eight miles from Young's Point, on the Louisiana side, at a point where the Shrevesport road crosses the Tensas. It is about twelve miles from Milliken's Bend, and thirty from Lake Providence, and an important point, from the fact that from it those places are easily acce
ving more troops than could be employed to advantage at Young's Point, and knowing that Lake Providence was connected by Bayoeft Admiral Porter near Black Bayou, and pushed back to Young's Point for the purpose of sending forward a pioneer corps to remove these difficulties. Soon after my return to Young's Point, Admiral Porter sent back to me for a cooperating military fred, and then it would become necessary to send back to Young's Point for the means of removing them. This gave the enemy tiion till night, and quietly dropped back to our camp at Young's Point. No casualties were sustained, save a slight wound froth a plain view of our fleets at the mouth of Yazoo and Young's Point; Vicksburgh in plain sight, and nothing separated us frn that day communinication was opened with our fleet at Young's Point and the mouth of the Yazoo, and bridges and roads made terior, embarked and landed opposite Vicksburgh, making Young's Point his depot of supplies. The efforts of General Williams
allant, and I doubt not, with good officers, they will make good troops Very respectfully, your obedient servant, U. S. Grant, Major-General. To Brig.-General Thomas, Adjutant-General of the Army. Headquarters N. E. District Louisiana, Young's Point, La., June 12, 1863. Colonel: I have the honor to report that, in accordance with instructions received from me, Colonel Leib, commanding Ninth Louisiana A. D., made a reconnoissance in the direction of Richmond on June sixth, starting from Mnclosed please find tabular statements of killed, wounded, and missing, in all six hundred and fifty-two. Nearly all the missing blacks will probably be returned, as they were badly scattered. The enemy, under General Hawes, advanced upon Young's Point, whilst the battle was going on at Milliken's Bend, but several well-directed shots from the gunboats compelled them to retire. See page 12, Docs. ante. Submitting the foregoing, I remain yours respectfully, Elias S. Dennis, Brigadie
