In the engagement of this day I regret to report a loss of five hundred and seventy-seven killed, wounded and missing. Among the seriously wounded and known to be in the hands of the enemy, I may mention Colonel Forney, Tenth Alabama regiment. This officer, not yet well of a wound received at Williamsburg, received a flesh wound in the arm and chest while charging a line of the enemy on the turnpike, but he still pressed onward and soon his right arm was shattered. He yet refused to quit the field and fell with a wound in the foot, in the ravine near the rear-most lines of the enemy. Colonel Pinckard, Fourteenth Alabama, had rejoined his regiment but two days before this battle, having been absent by reason of a severe wound received at Salem church, had his left arm badly broken; Captai

f whom fourteen are officers. Of this number nearly all are supposed to be killed or wounded. Most of the field upon which the brigade fought remained both nights in the possession of the enemy. It is believed that few, if any, not wounded, were taken prisoners. To my staff, Captain W. E. Winn, Assistant Adjutant-General, and Lieutenant Lindsay, Aid-de-Camp, I am indebted for valuable services rendered on the field during both days, their duties frequently requiring them to be under the severest musketry firing. The former was bruised by the explosion of a shell near him on the second day and thrown from his horse by it. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, C. M. Wilcox, Brigadier-General Commanding, &c. Two men, one of the Eighth and the other of the Tenth Alabama regiment, were wounded on the 12th instant near Saint James College, Maryland, thus making my loss seven hundred and seventy-nine while beyond the Potomac.

ed. The conduct of my men and officers was in all respects creditable. After the wounding of four regimental commanders, the other officers who succeeded to command acted with great gallantry and energy. Among these I may mention Lieutenant-Colonel Tayloe, of the Eleventh Alabama regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Shelley, of the Tenth Alabama, and Lieutenant-Colonel Broome, Fourteenth Alabama. With reference to the action of the 3d instant, I beg to report that early in the morning, beforeheir usual gallantry, though they accomplished but little. The regimental commanders were active and zealous in commanding and directing their men. Lieutenant-Colonel Herbert, of the Eighth; Lieutenant-Colonel Shelley, of the Tenth; Lieutenant-Colonel Tayloe, of the Eleventh, and Captain King, are all deserving of especial praise — the latter had lost a finger the day before.

encountered in the open field. It was not until my brigade had reached the ravine, beyond which was the ridge on which were the enemy's rifle pits and batteries, that they met infantry, and here they were engaged but for a few minutes, without probably inflicting much, if any loss, upon their infantry. This day my men acted with their usual gallantry, though they accomplished but little. The regimental commanders were active and zealous in commanding and directing their men. Lieutenant-Colonel Herbert, of the Eighth; Lieutenant-Colonel Shelley, of the Tenth; Lieutenant-Colonel Tayloe, of the Eleventh, and Captain King, are all deserving of especial praise — the latter had lost a finger the day before. Captain May, Ninth Alabama, had also been wounded on the 2d, but remained with his company during the battle of the 3d. There were many acts of personal gallantry among both men and officers during the two days battle. The entire loss of the two days battle was seven hundred a

hile after ours had ceased. I do not believe a single battery of the enemy had been disabled so as to stop its fire. Pickett's division now advanced and other brigades on his left. As soon as these troops rose to advance, the hostile artillery opened upon them. These brave men (Pickett's) nevertheless moved on, and, as far as I saw, without wavering. The enemy's artillery opposed them on both flanks and directly in front, and every variety of artillery missile was thrown into their raofficers, in quick succession (one from the Major-General Commanding division), gave me orders to move to the support of Pickett's division. My brigade, about twelve hundred in number, then moved forward in the following order from right to left:a regiments. As they advanced, they changed direction slightly to the left so as to cover in part the ground over which Pickett's division had moved. As they came in view on the turnpike, all of the enemy's terrible artillery (that could bear on t

In this affair, so creditable to the Tenth Alabama and its gallant colonel, this regiment lost ten killed and twenty-eight wounded; in the Eleventh Alabama one officer, Major Fletcher, severely wounded, and seventeen men wounded--six or eight severely. The brigade now (nine A. M.) took its position in line of battle on the right of the division, and the extreme right of the army at this time. The Tenth Alabama occupiedAlabama, severe wound through the body. (entitled to the promotion of lieutenant-colonel); Captain Brandigan, Eighth Alabama, leg broken. These four were left, not being able to bear transportation. Colonel Sanders, Eleventh Alabama, and Major Fletcher, of same regiment, each received severe wounds. Captain King, Ninth Alabama (entitled to promotion of colonel), had a finger shot off. It will be seen that of five of my regimental commanders four were wounded in this first day's battle.
