The guns of the Eighth Indiana Battery were all lost; the men left are distributed to other commands, so that it is impossible to report their number with this report. The Sixth Ohio Battery have 106 horses. It lost 1 officer, 8 men, 2 horses, 2 caissons, and 1 battery wagon. A full report of the casualties will be furnished as soon as practicable. The Second Brigade is detached on duty in Chattanooga.
