I respectfully call your attention to the accompanying reports of regimental and detachment commanders, also the tabular statement of losses.

We buried 231 rebel dead, and captured 411 prisoners, 3 stand of colors, and about 800 stand of arms.

Amongst the prisoners brought in was Brigadier-General Young, who estimated the enemy's loss at 2,000 killed, wounded, and missing.

To my personal, staff, Captain M. R. Flint, First Alabama Cavalry, and Lieutenant A. P. Vaughan, FIFTY-second Illinois Infantry, I tender my heartiest thanks and congratulations for their remarkable bravery and efficient services during the entire engagement; also to Lieutenant William Ludlow, chief engineer, Twentieth Army Corps, who, sent to Rome to superintend the works there, arrived as we were leaving and volunteered as an aide for the expedition. He rendered with the other gentlemen above mentioned valuable services and manifested a personal courage and zeal deserving high praise.
