after the loss of his battery, appeared perfectly unmanned and broken-hearted. His only remark was: I could not help it, Captain; it was not my fault. Captain Harris, commanding the battery on the right, is, with his men, entitled to all praise for their steady fire, continued for three and a half hours. I cannot conceive a battery to be better served than his was. Too high praise cannot be given to Lieutenant E. E. Kennon, Acting Adjutant to the Thirty-fourth brigade, and to Lieutenant John Collins, of the Ninety-eighth Ohio, Aid to Col. Webster. It would be hard to conceive of two young officers performing their duties with more unflinching courage than they showed. With the exception of Captain S. M. Starling, Inspector-General of Infantry and Ordnance, all the staff-officers left me and I believe reported to General McCook. On the decease of our General, Captain B. D. Williams, Division Quartermaster, knowing well the topography of the country, was detailed before the
nd Kentucky cavalry to reconnoitre the ground on the left of the skirmishers. Gen. Gay's cavalry was making a reconnoissance in front and toward Perryville. I was t spoken of in terms of high praise, which I can most safely endorse. Inspector-General Gay, in charge of the cavalry in my front, was active and highly efficient.column.

I ordered thety-sixth remaining in undisputed possession of the contested ground. Brigadier-General Gay, Inspector of Cavalry upon General Buell's staff, came up after the enebels had bit the dust, and we remained masters of the field. The conduct of General Gay and his staff is spoken of with much praise by all who witnessed it. All the

e in grateful terms the invaluable services throughout the day of the gallant soldier, Major Thomas L. P. Defrees. I also take great pleasure in bearing testimony to the promptness and bravery of Adjutant George R. Elstner, in his constant assistance throughout the engagement. Although out of the ordinary course of a report of this kind, still I hope you will permit me to make honorable mention of the bravery and timely assistance rendered me at a critical point of the engagement by Lieut. J. T. Collins, of company E, Ninety-eighth Ohio regiment, acting Aid to Col. Webster. The Fiftieth Ohio regiment went into action with five hundred and ninety-seven men,597 And came off the field with four hundred and sixty-seven men,467 Lost in killed, wounded, and missing, one hundred and thirty,130 Now present and returned fit for duty, five hundred and thirteen,513 Recapitulation.

, of the Second Kansas regiment; Lieut. Andrews, of the Forty-second Illinois volunteers, and Lieutenant Wood, of the Signal Corps, for the able, gallant, and heroic manner in which they discharged their respective duties during the engagement, always ready and willing to take any risk or make any sacrifice for the good of their country's cause. Surgeon Hazlet, of the Fifty-ninth Illinois; Lieut.-Col. Keith, Twenty-second Indiana; Lieut. Johnson, Fifty-eighth Illinois; Lieut. Tolbert, Lieut. Ridler, and Captain R. K. Smith, of the Twenty-second Indiana; Lieut. Blean and Lieut. Eels, of the Seventy-fifth Illinois, died gallantly defending the honor of their country's flag. On the morning of the ninth, a force of rebel cavalry was seen winding from the enemy's left, and evidently proceeding toward the Harrods-burgh turnpike. I directed Hotchkiss's battery to fire upon them, which was done with good effect, the enemy rapidly retreating. I then advanced with my division to this

, Seventy-ninth Pennsylvania; Mitchell, Tenth Wisconsin; Reeve and Fuller, Twenty-first Wisconsin; and Shannon, Second Ohio. Major C. S. Cotter, First Ohio artillery, chief of that arm, behaved with conspicuous gallantry and good judgment during the entire action. He was, unfortunately, taken prisoner after dark. Captain Beverly D. Williams, Acting Quartermaster, was my guide during the entire day. The battle was fought near his birthplace, and he was of inestimable service to me. Lieut. M. P. Gratz, and volunteer Aid Henry Duncan, of Kentucky, of Jackson's staff, reported to me for duty, after the fall of their gallant General. Lieut. C. C. Parsons, Fourth United States artillery, also reported to me after his battery had fallen into the hands of the enemy. He behaved with great bravery during the entire day. The loss of his battery was no fault of his. He remained with it until he was deserted by every man around him. Captain William P. Anderson, Assistant Adjutant-General

some batteries, I believe of Gen. Rousseau's, were in action at long-range on the right, and Gen. Jackson, not then contemplating a general engagement, ordered me back to bring up the troops, and to of Lieut. E. E. Kennon, Assistant Adjutant-General, herewith submitted. Here I rejoined General Jackson; a few rounds having opened the enemy's batteries, a twelve-pounder shot came within a foot so promptly. The regiment fired a volley and fell back, when, almost immediately afterward, Gen. Jackson, who was standing on the left of the battery, was killed, two bullets entering his right breaheld its ground until the battle ceased. But it retreated only after its division commander, Gen. Jackson, and one brigade commander, Gen. Terrell, were killed, and the other, Col. Webster, was morta, posted near Stone's battery, broke and ran away with unseemly haste, then all the troops of Gen. Jackson's division will hereafter be classed among the veterans of the Union army. The partial suc

nemy's cavalry appearing that moment a mile and a half to the front, was admirably shelled and dispersed in great disorder, by Capt. Stone's First Kentucky, artillery. I then directed Col. Starkweather to place Stone's battery and that of Capt. Bush's Fourth Indiana artillery on a high ridge on the extreme left, and extending diagonally to the front, and to support those batteries with the First Wisconsin, Lieut.-Col. Bingham, placed on that ridge, and by the Seventy-ninth Pennsylvania, Col. Hambright, placed on another ridge running at almost right angles to the one on which the batteries were planted. This formation gave a cross-fire, and proved of infinite value in maintaining that all-important position during the day. These formations were made in great haste, and in a few moments, but without the least confusion or disorder, the men moving into line as if on parade. I then returned to Harris's brigade, hearing that the enemy was close upon him, and found that the Thirty-third
rigade was in the rear, and within supporting distance of Gen. Sheridan's division, which was then engaging the enemy in front. The Thirty-second brigade, Colonel Caldwell, Eighty-first Indiana volunteers, commanding, was formed in the rear of the Thirty-first brigade. Col. Caldwell's brigade comprised the following regiments aCol. Caldwell's brigade comprised the following regiments and battery: Twenty-fifth and Thirty-fifth Illinois volunteers, commanded by Lieutenant-Cols.

Almost immediately upon the formation of my lines, as mentionedofficers. Major Gilmer, Thirty-eighth Illinois, deserves great credit for the skill and activity he displayed in this capture. The Thirty second brigade, Colonel Caldwell, was advanced at different times to the positions evacuated by Col. Carlin.

and compact style; and I am indebted to Captain O. L. Baldwin, of the Second Kentucky volunteers, Assistant Inspector-General, for his energy in clearing the roads of the wagons, which, on the seventh, had, under some mistake, become involved among the troops, and lined the road all the way back to Lick Creek, and were materially impeding the progress of the troops, especially the artillery. The other members of my staff; (Capt. J. Edward Stacy, A. A.A. G.,) my two Aids-de-Camp, (Lieut. George K. Speed and Lieut. John Speed,) and Capt. George S. Roper, C. S., were active and efficient in transmitting my orders. Surgeon George R. Weeks was active and ready in the duties pertaining to his office as Medical Director. The officers of the signal corps rendered ready and useful service all day on the seventh and eighth. Brig.-Gen. Mitchell this day sustained fully the reputation which he won at an early period of this war for energy and daring. Brig.-Gen. Sheridan I commend t
ade in great haste, and in a few moments, but without the least confusion or disorder, the men moving into line as if on parade. I then returned to Harris's brigade, hearing that the enemy was close upon him, and found that the Thirty-third Ohio had been ordered further to the front by Gen. McCook, and was then engaged with the enemy and needed support. Gen. McCook, in person, ordered the Second Ohio to its support, and sent directions to me to order up the Twenty-fourth Illinois, also, Captain Mauf commanding. I led the Twenty-fourth Illinois in line of battle immediately forward, and it was promptly deployed as skirmishers by its commander, and went gallantly into action on the left of the Thirty-third Ohio. The Second Ohio moving up to support the Thirty-third Ohio, was engaged before it arrived on the ground where the Thirty-third was fighting. The Thirty-eighth Indiana, Colonel B. F. Scribner commanding, then went gallantly into action on the right of the Second Ohio; then fo
