uring the battle.
Early on the morning of the fifth instant, I joined with my command in the pursuit of Van Dorn's and Price's armies; marched sixteen miles, and bivouacked near Widow Wright's. On the sixth, continued the pursuit, marching sixteen miles; bivouacked at Crumm's Mills.
The road was strewn with arms, ammunition, camp equipage, wagons, etc., showing that the armies of the enemy were perfectly stampeded.
On the seventh, again in pursuit before day-light, marching through Jonesborough, and, late at night, reached a point near Ripley.
I have the honor to enclose, herewith, a list of the killed, wounded, and missing.
Deing ordered in pursuit so soon after battle, prevents me from making it as complete and full as I could have wished.
The result shows, twenty-four killed, one hundred and five wounded--eight mortally — and three missing, or forty-eight per cent of the entire number taken into action.
I am, Captain, very respectfully, your obedient servant, J. W. S
