this corps is ready to start at any moment on another. During the
campaign the ambulance train of the Fifth Army Corps has removed
over 8,000 wounded men from the field of battle to the hospital, and
has assisted in removing the same number of wounded, and over
1,000 sick from the hospitals to the depots to be sent North.
I cannot speak too highly of the officers and men of my command,
who, when duty called them, willingly faced danger, and oftentimes
death, in order to remove the wounded from the field of battle.

them gave material assistance, viz: First Lieut. W. S. Walker, Eight-
eenth Massachusetts Volunteers ; First Lieut. E. H. Liscum, Twelfth

distinguished themselves by their good conduct, I wish to mention
Sergt. Milton Powers, of the Eleventh U. S. Infantry, who was par-

which he worked. While in the performance of their duties 1 offi-
cer and 4 sergeants were wounded and 3 sergeants were taken pris-
oners. Six stretcher men were killed, 16 wounded, and 9 taken pris-
