ormed a line behind a fence in the woods. The Second brigade of Logan's division, under General M. D. Leggett, was thrown upon the right of Hovey, the Twentieth Ohio regiment in the advance. As GenGeneral Leggett advanced with his command, the rebels opened a heavy fire, but failed to make him give way a single inch. The Twentieth, Seventy-eighth, and Sixty-eighth Ohio and the Thirtieth Illinois, composing his command, stood their ground like veterans. General Leggett wished to move forward, but was not permitted to do so, lest he should expose Hovey's right, which he was intended to coveremy's right. The three brigades of the Third division, commanded by Generals John E. Smith, M. D. Leggett, and John D. Stevenson, nobly sustained the reputation they have long held as true soldiers and brave men. The Ohio brigade was skilfully handled by General Leggett, who is one of the most efficient brigadiers in the Western army. De Golyer's Eighth Michigan battery did splendid execution,

Doc. 192.-battle of Champion Hill, Miss. Colonel Spicely's report. headquarters Twenty-Fourth Indiana Vols., Champion Hill, Miss., May 17, 1863. Captain Jos. H. Linsey, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, First Brigade. sir: In pursuance to orders, I have the honor to report the part taken by the Twenty-fourth regiment Indiana volunteers, in the battle of Champion Hill, Mississippi, on the sixteenth day of May, 1863. On the sixteenth instant, at six o'clock A. M., we moved from our camp near Bolton's Depot, four miles from the distant battle-ground, in the direction of Edwards's Depot, at which point the enemy were reported to be in force. My command being in advance, I was ordered by General McGinnis, commanding brigade, to move three companies of my command to the front. I immediately sent companies C, F, and I to the advance, and again resumed the line of march. At about ten o'clock in the morning, as we approached the hills, we were apprised by our cavalry ad

The rebels observed d a fence in the woods. The Second brigade of Logan's division, under General M. D. Leggett, was txpired in about half an hour. The result of Logan's fighting was the capture of two batteries ofghest terms by his superior officers. While Logan and Hovey were busy on the right and centre, OHe was not engaged until late in the day, when Logan began to press the rebels on our right, compelon of McPherson's corps came up in the rear of Logan's command, and was immediately ordered to the men upon three divisions of our army, those of Logan, Hovey, and Quinby, so that they had really abplendid success. An officer was sent to General Logan to inquire how the contest was going in his front. Logan sent back word: Tell General Grant that my division cannot be whipped by all the re[1 more...]

bers, at great disadvantage, the rebels made an attempt to charge the Sixteenth Ohio battery, and would have succeeded in capturing it but for the alacrity with which the pieces were limbered and run to the rear. Our infantry had been driven back, and the battery was left without support. The rebels started for it on the double-quick, and got within a hundred yards of it, when it started at full speed to join our retreating column. A volley of musketry from the enemy mortally wounded Captain Mitchell, commander of the battery. It was thought at first that he was taken prisoner, as his horse came into our lines riderless. He has since been found, however. Early in the afternoon, a section of company D, Second Illinois artillery, under Captain Rogers, advanced to dangerously close proximity to the rebel lines, and opened two twenty-four pound howitzers, to drive the rebels from a position from which they were about to advance upon our men. They filed out of the woods in excellent

thodist preachers, and a majority of the soldiers are members of the Methodist Church. They did some of the best fighting of the day, yesterday. They went into the battle full of enthusiasm, and not one of them flinched during the engagement. Their major was wounded late in the day. He walked from the field, and, on his way to the hospital, captured a stalwart confederate, and compelled him to carry him on his back to the Provost-Marshal's headquarters. It was a laughable sight to see Major Wright riding his captive into camp. The casualty list of the Methodists is very large, and shows that they stood up to their work like true soldiers. On returning from the battle-field in the evening they held a religious meeting, at which the exercises were very impressive. As I write they are filling the woods with Old hundred. Indiana was more largely represented in the fight to-day than any other State. The troops that were exposed to the heaviest fire were from the Hoosier State. A

Methodists is very large, and shows that they stood up to their work like true soldiers. On returning from the battle-field in the evening they held a religious meeting, at which the exercises were very impressive. As I write they are filling the woods with Old hundred. Indiana was more largely represented in the fight to-day than any other State. The troops that were exposed to the heaviest fire were from the Hoosier State. Among them were the famous Zouaves formerly commanded by Lew Wallace. Just before Hovey was driven back the Forty-sixth Indiana advanced, with the Eleventh, far beyond other troops, with no supporting force on either flank, and took six pieces of artillery, driving the rebels from their guns by a hand-to-hand fight. The rebels immediately inclosed them on three sides in overwhelming numbers. They had two lines, and our wounded, when they passed over, say this column was eight deep. There was nothing left for our men, of course, but to fall back, which

efensive. His men acted bravely, however, succeeding, during the day, in capturing two thousand prisoners and twelve pieces of artillery. The rebels, severely punished on our right, fled to the left, only to fall into the net which General Smith's division acted as. Smith's command consists of two brigades — the First under General Burbridge, composed of the Twenty-third Wisconsin, Eighty-third Ohio, Sixteenth and Seventeenth Indiana, and Seventeenth Ohio battery; and the Second under Colonel Landrum, embracing the Nineteenth Kentucky, Forty-eighth Ohio, Seventy-seventh, Seventy-ninth, and One Hundred and Thirtieth Illinois, and the Chicago Mercantile battery. The Mercantile claims to have killed General Lloyd Tilghman, with a shell from one of their guns. They say rebel prisoners inform them of the fact. General Quinby's division of McPherson's corps came up in the rear of Logan's command, and was immediately ordered to the position which Hovey, with Spartan zeal, was endeavor

upward of twenty pieces of artillery during the day. There were many instances of heroism in the battle to-day, which ought to entitle the actors to the admiration of the country, and embalm their memories in the hearts of every patriot. Lieutenant Perry, of the Forty-seventh Indiana, was with his company under the hottest fire of the engagement. His regiment occupied such a position that his command was very much exposed and was suffering dreadfully. One of his comrades suggested to him that he ought to avail himself of a little cover immediately in his rear. Perry looked at him calmly but resolutely, and said: No, sir. The Forty-seventh never gives back an inch. A moment afterward he was shot through the heart and expired without a groan. Two of his men, on seeing him fall, wept like children. The Lieutenant-Colonel of the Tenth Missouri was shot through the heart while waving his sword to urge his men forward to a charge, which they executed with splendid success. An
