gagement; also to my volunteer aides, Lieut. Lemuel Shepperd and Mr.
Templeman, who were conspicuous for daring and gallantry in every
engagement under every fire.
Major Hooper, brigade quartermaster, and Major Smith, brigade com-
missary, as well as the surgeons of the whole brigade, deserve my es-
pecial thanks for the zeal and energy displayed in the field and every-
where during the whole expedition.
Captain Burnet, chief of artillery; Lieutenant Hogg, commanding
Appeal Battery, with his officers and men, deserve especial notice for
the skill and efficiency with which they handled the battery and poured
the shell and grape into the enemy's ranks.
Before closing I must return my sincere thanks to the officers and
men who have survived for the promptness, daring, and cheerfulness
with which they have executed every order, and ask them never to for-
get the daring and heroism of the noble dead. Arkansas, although for
a while cast in gloom for her lost sons, can look with pride to the daring
and gallantry of her sons, and console herself with the happy thought
that her soldiers are equal to any and second to none among those who
are battling for Southern independence.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
W. L. CABELL,
Brigadier-General, Commanding Brigade.
Assistant Adjutant- General, Maury's Division.

MAJOR: I have the honor to submit the following report of the part
taken by my division in the recent operations around Corinth:
On the 2d instant the division repaired and crossed the Tuscumbia
Bridge 15 miles from Corinth, and moved forward, the cavalry, under
Armstrong and Jackson, in advance. We moved to Chewalla, skir-
mishing lightly with the enemy for several hours, and occupied the
camp just abandoned, capturing some tents, quartermaster's and com-
On the 3d we moved forward, Villepigue's brigade in advance, skir-
mishing more heavily with a force of the enemy, composed of two reg
iments of infantry, a section of artillery, and some cavalry, until we
drove them across Indian Creek. At this point their artillery fire be-
came more frequent. Here we took an abandoned 12-pounder howitzer.
The bridge was repaired under fire, and I crossed the whole division,
consisting of Rust's brigade on the right, Bowen's in the center, and
Villepigue's on the left. The enemy occupied with his artillery a high
hill at the crossing of the State Line road with the Memphis and Charles-
ton Railroad, with rifle-pits extending north and south, affording, with
the hill, a strong position for about 3,300 men. The skirmishers were
then re-enforced and the whole line ordered to the assault, with reserves
behind each brigade. The conflict was short and bloody. Our troops,
