Faulkner, Assistant Adjutant-General: sir: I have the honor to report, as follows, the movements of my division at Cedar Run, on the ninth August, 1862: My division followed the cavalry advance, and when we reached the south end of the valley, the enemy's cavalry were seen in strong force in our front. A reconnoissance was made, and artillery fired on the enemy, which drove them back, soon to reappear. It was evident that the enemy intended to make

wenty-seventh Virginia, commanded on this occasion as follows: The Fifth by Major Williams, the Second by Lieutenant-Colonel Lawson Botts, the Fourth by Lieutenant-Colonel Robert D. Gardner, the Thirty-third by Lieutenant-Colonel Edward G. Lee, the Twenty-seventh by Captain Charles L. Haynes. Captains Carpenter's and Poague's batteries are attached. The brigade bivouacked, on the night of the eighth, in Madison County, on the road leading to Culpeper Court-House, and about one mile from Madison Mills, on the Rapidan River. On the morning of the ninth, the brigade took up the line of march in the direction of Culpeper Court-House. The march was frequently interrupted from causes unknown to me at the time, and at fifteen minutes past three o'clock P. M. the brigade was halted in the woods a short distance to the left of the road. At this time, some cannonading was going on in front. Here several Parrott guns, from Captains Poague's and Carpenter's batteries, were ordered to the fro

ext morning I was remanded to Slaughter's Mountain. An armistice having been agreed on to bury the dead, General Early returned to the field with a detachment from his brigade, and while there, secured six wagon loads of arms, besides burying nearly one hundred dead left by the other divisions of the army, and which would not have been buried but for his energy. General Early, though on duty since the battle of Malvern Hill, was still so enfeebled from the effects of a wound received at Williamsburg, as to be unable to mount his horse without assistance. I beg to call the attention of the Major-General commanding to the gallant and effective service rendered by General Early in repulsing repeated attacks of the enemy, and contributing largely in driving him from the field. I beg leave to recommend him for promotion, and also heartily indorse his recommendation for the promotion of Colonel Walker, of the Thirteenth Virginia, to the rank of Brigadier-General. My staff present were,

the enemy's. At ten o'clock that night, after firing about eight rounds from each gun, Captain Pegram was sent forward with Colonel Stafford's brigade, and had, for an hour or more, a severe fight with the enemy, losing several men and horses, and inflicting considerable loss upon the enemy. Next morning at daylight, I was ordered by General Hill to select a position much to our left, and on the south side of the creek, which I did, placing two batteries of mine, viz., Captains Fleet's and Donelson's, and one of General Early's. This position commanded the enemy's camp somewhat to their rear. Captains Pegram and Hardy inflicted great loss on the enemy on Saturday evening, and their conduct, with that of the men under their command, cannot be too highly commended. The batteries of my command cannot be too highly commended. The batteries of my command were all retired on Sunday evening, Captain Braxton bringing up the rear and retiring by half battery. I have the honor to remain,

I must express my thanks to the officers and men of this regiment for the gallant manner in which they conducted themselves during the whole engagement; and, where all conducted themselves so gallantly, it is impossible to mention particular individuals, although there were those whose gallant conduct renders them worthy of the proudest position.

Colonel Taliaferro particularly mentions Major Stover, commanding Tenth Virginia regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Curtis, commanding Twenty-third Virginia, who fell mortally wounded ; Major Walton, Twenty-third Virginia; Colonel T. C. Williams, of the Thirty-seventh Virginia, who was wounded; Major Wood, Thirty-seventh Virginia; Lieutenant-Colonel Jackson, of the Forty-seventh Alabama regiment; Colonel Sheffield, of the Forty-eighth Alabama regiment, who was severely wounded; Major Aldrich, Forty-eighth Alabama regiment, severely wounded; and of his A.

giment, the four companies of the Fifty-second Virginia regiment, with Lieutenant-Colonel Skinner, and a part of the Fifty-eighth Virginia regiment, under Major Kasey, of my own brigade, had not given way, and Colonel Thomas's brigade was still left on my right. These troops were then isolated and in an advanced position, and had they given way, the day, in all probability, would have been lost. I could not, therefore, go to rally those of my regiments which were retiring, but despatched Major Hale, my Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, to do so, and I immediately rode to the right to urge the troops there to hold their position. After doing this, I rode again toward the left and discovered the enemy retiring before some of our troops, which were again advancing. These I discovered to be a portion of my own brigade, which had been rallied, and a portion of General Taliaferro's brigade. I rode up to them, and while I was here the enemy attempted to retrieve the fortunes of the day

A short time after Lieutenant Early was sent to General Winder, I sent Major A. L. Pitzer, a volunteer Aid, to ask that some pieces of artillery should be sent up. Before this request could be complied with by General Winder, Captain Brown, of the Chesapeake artillery, with one piece, and Captain Dement, with three pieces, came . I was attracted by the conspicuous gallantry exhibited by Colonel Taliaferro, of the Twenty-third Virginia regiment, who I saw urging his men on. My staff officers, Major P. Hall, A. A. General, Lieutenant S. H. Early, A. D. C., and Major A. L. Pitzer, volunteer A. D. C., displayed great courage and energy in carrying my orders under fire, and in rallying and encouraging the troops. They were everywhere on the field where there was danger, each having his horse struck under him. Ther
