Schurz having seen the letter of Sigel to Kearney, ordered a general advance of his whole line, brigade never yielded a foot of ground until Kearney's attack late in the afternoon. Not even Groult was preparing for us. This time it was Phil. Kearney, a distinguished soldier in the Mexican waMexico and was killed by the Indians in 1851. Kearney, who was to die before our division but threevens, of Reno's command, was on the ground on Kearney's left. He saw that assistance was needed, aree thousand two hundred and sixty-six men to Kearney's four thousand five hundred—together, over sand Stevens's seven thousand fresh troops.

These Federals escaped after nightfall by taking a cir
