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.

There were instances of individual heroism, which I refrain from mentioning, lest injustice should be done to others. Before concluding this report, I deem it my duty to bring to your notice a fact which shows the barbarous and brutal manner in which this war is being conducted by our enemies. Second Lieutenant Thomas M. Brown, of company K, was taken prisoner at the time our regiment left the woods. He was afterward found in the woods mortally wounded, and, before dying, stated to Lieutenant Roach, of the Twenty-first, and Captain Turner, of the Irish battalion, that he was taken unhurt, but when the enemy were forced to retreat, they knocked him down with their guns, and bayoneted him in several places. He was in his proper mind at the time of making this statement, and died the same night. Accompanying this report I forward a list of casualties. Respectfully, your obedient servant, W. A.
