Chief of Artillery.

HDQRS. ARTILLERY BATTALION, THIRD DIVISION, September 29, 1863.

CAPTAIN: I have the honor to submit herewith copies of the official reports of the commanding officers of the batteries of this division, and also a list of the names* of the killed, wounded, and missing.

The Independent Pennsylvania Battery went into the action with:

Commissioned officers ................................... 5

Enlisted men ............................................107

Total ...................................................112

The Third Wisconsin Battery went into the action with:

Commissioned officers ................................... 3

Enlisted men ............................................116

Total ...................................................119

The Seventh Indiana Battery went into the action with:

Commissioned officers ................................... 5

Enlisted men ............................................117

Total ...................................................122
