nt of my line, and the regiment rested for the night. Many prisoners came in through my line, and I sent a guard to take charge of them. I passed over hundreds of muskets, but would not allow my men to stop to pick them up. All my officers and men obeyed orders promptly and fought well. My losses were heavy, as the accompanying list Omitted. of casualties shows. Colonel Grower died of his wounds on the 3d instant. In him the Government has lost one of its bravest and noblest defenders, and the regiment its beloved commander. Capt. John Canty, who was mortally wounded, showed himself, as he always has, a gallant officer, and the same is true of Capt. Hiram Wilde, who was slightly wounded. The regiment lost 4 commissioned officers wounded, 23 enlisted men killed, and 70 wounded. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, J. O. Martin, Major, Commanding Seventeenth New York Vet. Vols. Lieut. John P. Hollers, Actg. Asst. Adjt. Gen., 1st Brig., 2d Div., 14th Army Corps.
