ond Delaware Regiment resting on our right. The regiment advanced with the brigade rapidly and steadily under a sharp fire from the enemy, whom we drove before us, killing, wounding, and taking many prisoners. Our loss on the 2nd was:

Officers and men Killed Wounded Missing Total

Commissioned officers 4 7 -- 11

Enlisted men 11 54 18 83

Total 15 61 18 94

On the morning of the 3d, the Sixty-fourth was in line on the left of the brigade, and mustered for action 1 field officer, 5 captains, 6 lieutenants, and 85 enlisted men with rifles. Colonel Bingham being wounded and at division hospital, the command of the regiment devolved upon Major Bradley. Breastworks were built to our front, which proved a defense against the heavy cannonading received from the enemy on that day. Our only loss this day was 1 man wounded on picket, under the command of Captain W. W. Wait. I am happy to say, as far as came to my knowledge, every officer and enlisted man did his duty in such a manner as to honor himself, his regiment, his brigade, and his country. On the 4th, we buried our dead and held short religious services, conducted by the chaplain of the One hundred and forty-fifth Pennsylvania Regiment. On Sunday morning, the 5th, we had an inspection of arms. At 4 p. m. the regiment marched with its brigade in the direction of Frederick City, Md.
