t, 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.
My losses were eight wounded in the artillery.
