SIR: I have the honor to report that the Eleventh Regiment Connecticut Volunteers crossed the Rappahannock River to Fredericksburg on the evening of the 12th instant, and bivouacked in the streets of that city, occupying a position on the extreme left of Colonel Harland's brigade.

On the morning of the 13th, I reported the regiment to Colonel Donohoe, Tenth New Hampshire Volunteers, for picket duty, according to orders from Colonel Harland. The regiment was then stationed to strengthen the pickets of Getty's division, where it remained during the day of the 13th, and until early on the morning of the 14th, when, with the exception of two companies left on picket, the regiment accompanied the brigade, which had come up the night before to the city, where it again bivouacked in the streets.

The regiment occupied that position during Sunday, the 14th, and Monday, the 15th, until evening, when it recrossed the river and reached their present camp before midnight. The two companies left on picket were relieved by the Eighth Connecticut Volunteers on the night of the 14th.

Casualties: 1 wounded and 2 missing.
