up a sharp fire at this point, as one near which our troops and batteries must pass in taking position. I found that to the right and front, some two hundred and fifty yards, were rises in the ground favorable for positions for artillery. I therefore directed Major Andrews to move forward his rifle guns to these points. He moved out four rifles and one twelve-pounder Napoleon. The latter and two rifles were from Captain Poague's battery, and the others from those of Captains Caskie and Carpenter. Their fire was directed against the enemy's batteries in order to protect the deployment of our infantry. They were excellently served, and so completely occupied the enemy's guns,--about twelve in number, I think,--that Major Andrews proposed to move one or two smooth-bored batteries farther down the road, and endeavor to enfilade the enemy's position. In trying to do this he was wounded, and the complexion of affairs just after prevented its subsequent execution. Meanwhile the batte
on of the enemy. Before our artillery could be brought to bear, a body of cavalry threatened us; but a gallant charge on our part soon caused them to take shelter under their infantry. We killed one of their horses. Now our artillery commenced shelling the position of the enemy, causing him to retire, and we followed as soon as we could, safely, from our own shells. A negro servant of an officer was captured near this point, from whom we gained the first information of the arrival of General Sigel's force on the field. This intelligence was at once sent to the rear. The fierce cannonade, probably from the guns of this command, newly arrived, swept the ground immediately in our rear, and compelled us to seek the shelter of a friendly hill, until they had sufficiently amused themselves. The result of our advance was eleven privates, three Lieutenants, and one negro captured from the enemy. My thanks are due to Mr. Thomas Richards, independent scout, and to Lieutenant McCarty, ac

the praise of the greatest of champion warriors, and particularly the conduct of Color-Sergeant John M. Gabbert, who was in advance, with a sword in one hand and the colors in the other, waving both the sword and colors, and calling upon the men to come on, when he received a wound in the shoulder and leg, which disabled him so much that he was compelled to abandon the field. At a late hour we were reinforced by two other brigades. We then advanced — the left wing being rallied by Adjutant C. S. Arnall, whose conduct was highly commendable in rallying the men to the colors and pressing forward, with the Second and Fourth regiments, in hot pursuit of the enemy till after dark, when, reaching the top of a hill in a cornfield, he was ordered to halt, and remained until morning. I joined in with Colonel Lee, of the Thirty-third, and advanced, overtaking the Second and Fourth, who had halted in a cornfield, on the right of the main road leading to Culpeper Court-House, where the brigad

Fuller, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General: Captain: In obedience to orders, just received, I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by me in the action of August ninth, at Cedar Run: On the morning of that day, at sunrise, the brigade left the bivouac about a mile from the bank of the Rapidan River, and marched, with many interruptions, some six or seven miles on the road to Culpeper Court-House. About midday, we were halted in a wood on the left of the road, whi
anced, until after the conclusion of the fight. I call especial attention to his report. He is a most efficient and gallant officer, who is always ready to perform any duty assigned him, and the men of his regiment are capital fighting men, there being none better in the army. When Colonel Walker is in front, with his men deployed as skirmishers, I feel secure against an ambuscade. I respectfully and earnestly recommend him for promotion to the position of Brigadier-General. Lieutenant-Colonel Terrell, of the same regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Skinner, commanding the Fifty-second Virginia regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Jackson, commanding the Thirty-first Virginia regiment, (severely wounded;) Major Kasey, commanding the Fifty-eighth Virginia regiment; Major Higginbotham, commanding the Twenty-fifth Virginia regiment; and Captain William F. Brown, commanding the Twelfth Georgia regiment, all acquitted themselves with great gallantry. The brigade generally acquitted itself well.

details, and a list of killed and wounded of the division. No one can estimate the loss this brigade and this division of the army has sustained in the early death of Brigadier-General Winder. He was warmly beloved by all who knew him as a man, and had the full confidence of his command as a soldier. I beg leave, in conclusion, to allude to the gallantry of Major Snowden Andrews, chief of artillery, who was severely, and I fear mortally, wounded; to that of my Adjutant-General, Captain William B. Pendleton, who was severely wounded, losing his leg; of Lieutenant Meade, A. D. C.; Major Taliaferro, volunteer Aid-de-camp, who rendered me most efficient and important service, and to speak particularly of the gallant conduct of my orderly, a youth of sixteen, private Clinton Depriest, company H, Twenty-third Virginia regiment.

The gun and caisson were sent to Richmond, one caisson exchanged into Captain Poague's battery, and the other caisson and limber also sent to Richmond. It is due that I should call especial attention to the gallantry displayed by Major R. L. Andrews in this action. He was severely wounded, and, in our withdrawal, fell a prisoner into the hands of the enemy. Captain J. Carpenter, a most excellent officer, received a wound, from which he has since died, while fearlessly exposing himself in looking out a position for his battery.

Accordingly, Captain Wilson, Assistant Adjutant-General Second brigade, and Lieutenant White, Acting Aid-de-camp, were sent in different parts of the field to insure an early interview we among civilized nations. To the members of my staff all praise is due for their bravery and efficiency in the discharge of every duty.
