I have been informed by Surg. O. Q. Herrick, from the enemy's lines, that all the medical officers with him have been paroled to report to the commandant of the post at Atlanta as soon as relieved from taking care of the United States sick and wounded prisoners.

The conduct of the medical officers of this corps has, with few exceptions, been highly commendable. Special mentions have been made in division reports, which will be forwarded to Surg. G. Perin, medical director, Department of the Cumberland. I refer especially to the services of the following:

Surg. S. Marks, medical director, First Division; Surg. R. G. Bogue, medical director, Second Division; Surg. M. C. Tollman, medical director, Third Division; O. Q. Herrick, medical director, Fourth Division, and the efficient medical purveyor of the corps, Asst. Surg. H. C. Barrell.

Arrangements have been made to get an accurate list of the names of the wounded, including those sent to the hospitals in the rear. When this has been accomplished in a satisfactory manner a copy will be forwarded. At present I add only the following estimates of numbers:*

Fourteenth Army Killed Wounded Total


First Division 200 650 850

Second Division 71 491 562

Third Division 325 1,642 1,967

Fourth Division 109 725 834

Total 705 3,508


It is believed by the director of the First Division that future information from those marked as missing on other reports will swell this estimate of wounded in that command.

While attempting to reach the Third Division hospital, on the morning of the 20th, in company with the topographical engineer, Captain Gaw, I received a slight wound in the neck, by a musket ball, not disabling me, however, for duty.

I am, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,


Surg., U. S. Vols., Medical Director, 14th Army Corps.

Major General GEORGE H. THOMAS,

Commanding Fourteenth Army Corps.
