McCook's Brigade — the Third, Ninth (his own regiment), and Twenty-eighth Ohio--for co-operation in the movement, with Scammon's Brigade a little in the rear as a reserve. McCook's Regiment was composed mostly of Germans,. and these were to lead the column. When they were ready for an advance, Adjutant-General Hartsuff was sent to bring the brigade forward. McCookMcCook, who had been restive in inactivity while the battle had been raging for nearly an hour, now glowed with delight. He was acting as brigadier, and was eager for usefulness and renown. He dashed up and down his line like a weaver's shuttle, distingu to storm the intrenchments, with the calm Hartsuff at their head.

The commanding general hastened forward to view the position, when he found the Confederates advancing through a corn-field, to flank the Fourth Kentucky. He immediately ordered up the Tennessee brigade and a section of artillery, and sent orders for Colonel R. L. McCook to advance with his two regiments (Ninth Ohio, Major Kaemmerling, and Second Minnesota, Colonel H. P. Van Cleve) to the support of the vanguard. The battle was opened at about six o'clock by the Kentucky and Ohio regiments, and Captain Kinney's Battery, stationed on the edge of the field, to the left of the Fourth Kentucky.

He dined at the St. Cloud hotel, and, at the table, sat by the side of General McCook, who was so cruelly murdered afterward. He was pointed out as the generous Union farmer who had made the gift to the commissary, and he was persuaded to take the value of it in gold. Then he secretly informed the general that a band of Morg
