During these operations this brigade has captured 14 commissioned
officers, 318 enlisted men, 2 pieces of artillery with limbers full of am-
munition, and have wounded Maj. Gen. J. E. B. Stuart and General
Gordon. It would be unjust to the brave officers and men who com-
pose my command did I close this report without uttering one word
in recognition of their bravery, daring, and endurance as exhibited
during the late campaign. Where so many instances of individual
heroism occurred it is impossible to particularize. The desire to
discharge all duties in a faithful and patriotic manner seemed uni-
versal throughout the command. I can only return my thanks to
the regimental commanders and the officers and men under them for
the promptness and energy with which they carried out my orders.
My thanks are also due to Captain Pennington, Lieutenants Wood-
ruff and Egan, for the skillful and dashing manner with which their
guns were handled. Words cannot express my gratitude to the
members of my staff, who on all occasions rendered me the most
hearty support and to whose able assistance I was frequently in-
debted for the success of our arms.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
G. A. CUSTER,
