As far as ascertained at this office, 261 wounded men were provided for.
The wounded of each day were promptly removed to the rear, and attended to before night.
As possession of the gaps was acquired without a serious battle, and as it was supposed that the enemy would make a stand in the vicinity of Tullahoma, it was deemed advisable to disencumber the command by sending all of the wounded to Murfreesborough. This was accordingly done.
The wounds were generally of a lighter character than usual; but few important surgical operations were necessary.
The attention of the medical officers to their duties was unremitting, and worthy of all praise.
The utility of the organization of brigade ambulance trains was very apparent during the late skirmishes. The ambulances were in good order, the trains were in the right place, and effectively served.
Accompanying will be found a consolidated list of the wounded, as far as heard from.*
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Surgeon U. S. Army, Medical Director, Dept. of the Cumberland.
Colonel C. GODDARD, Asst. Adjt. General, Dept. of the Cumberland.
