CAMP FOURTEENTH MICHIGAN INFANTRY,

Jonesborough, Ga., September 5, 1864.

SIR: In compliance with orders, I have to report the participation of the Fourteenth Michigan Infantry in the campaign from August 24 to date:

On the 1st of September my regiment advanced with its brigade, assaulted and carried the enemy's works, capturing Brigadier-General Govan, who surrendered his command to First Sergt. Patrick Irwin, of my regiment. I know that my regiment was the first to enter the enemy's works and capture 8 pieces of artillery, with caissons, and the battle-flag of the First Arkansas, but have observed so much feeling, and so many conflicting claims, that I do not desire to press the subject, for I certainly have no wish to detract from any regiment, but feel that the entire brigade and division did nobly. My loss was 2 men killed, 3 officers, and 25 men wounded. We captured also 4 mules, 3 single harness, and many small-arms, which have been duly turned over.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

HENRY R. MIZNER,

Colonel Fourteenth Michigan Infantry.

Lieutenant JOHN P. HOLLERS,

Acting Assistant Adjutant-General.
