NOTE. - In Stewart's corps a number of the enemy passed through the line to our rear. The men were ordered not to stop to collect them, but to move on to the front. These were doubltess picked up by other commands. Several pieces of artillery were also captured by the Army of Tennessee. I have not been able to ascertain the number.
