. Jones and Captain G. Campbell Brown, Adjutant-General department, Lieutenant T. T. Turner, Aid-de-camp, and Lieutenant Richardson, Engineer corps. These officers were, as usual, active and efficient in the performance of their duties. Lieutenant Elliott Johnson, Aid-de-camp to Brigadier-General Garnett, volunteered on my staff, for the battle, and here, as well as afterward at Bristoe, I profited largely by his activity, coolness, and intelligence. This officer was severely wounded at Sharpsburg. His valuable and long services to the Confederacy, much of the time without rank, entitle him to promotion. I enclose herewith reports from Captain D'Aquin's Louisiana battery, Major Courtay, chief of artillery, Colonel Walker, Thirteenth Virginia, Colonel Forno, commanding Hays's brigade, (Louisiana,) General Trimble, and General Early.

It will be hard to supply their places; but they fell on the field of honor, in defence of their homes, their people, their liberty, and all that makes life dear to man, and a grateful country and posterity will award them their meed of praise. Lieutenant-Colonel Curtis, commanding Twenty-third regiment Virginia volunteers, fell, mortally wounded, while gallantly leading his regiment into action. He came to the regiment in September, 1861, from Brooke County, Virginia, a private, and a refugee from the tyrants of the North-west, and, in the reorganization, he was called to the position he so gallantly filled — a fit testimonial by the officers to his gallantry and good conduct. He has fallen far from his home and friends, but will long be remembered by all associated with him in the cause of liberty. Colonel Williams, of the Thirty-seventh Virginia regiment, was slightly, and Colonel Sheffield, of the Forty-eighth Alabama regiment, was pai
