Sin : I liavi! the honor to submit the

the ;id Division Army of (he Ohio, i:the
battle of Chaplin Hills, fought on the
On the morning of the 8th, on tbe
inarch, (Jen. McCook showed mo an or
der of General Duell, in which it was
said he should move cautiously on ap
proaching l crryville, as the enemy would
probably make resistancein that vicinity.
When near Lhaplin Hills battle ground,
n(1 Perhaps three miles from Perry ville,
(ilcre,)ort of artillery to our right nnd
front was. beard, and Oen. AlcUook or
dered fne to advance my cavalry and
infantry in reconnoiesance, leaving the
artillery on an eminence in the road. I
moved on with the infantry, preceded
by six companies of the 2d Kentucky
cavalry, Col. Din.kner Hoard, and when
near t he field of battle, Col. Hoard re
ported the enemy in sight. I halted tho
command, sent back for Oen. McLook,
aud he and I rode forward (o the front,
examined the ground and chose a lino of
battle, to be adopted if (he enemy ad
vanced upon us, and soon afterwards
moved up to llussell's house on (he hill
overlooking tho field aud (here halted
the head of (he column. Whilst there
the artillery (two pieces) of Capt. Har
ris's battery with Gay's cavalry con
tinued to fire, and small arms were
also heard. Gay addressed a note to me,
saying he had been pressing the enemy,
all the morning, was pressing him then,
and much needed a regiment of infantry
to support his pieces. I ordered the 42d
Indiana regiment to do so, and rode for
ward to his pieces nnd found him and
Captain Harris (here. Ihe enemy was
just disappearing in"the woods, far to the
front, aud out ot range ot lianis ordi
nary brass pieces. 1 then ordered up
Loomis with two ol Ins I'arrott guns,
and he shelled the woods, the enemy
now and then appearing until he was uo
longer to be seen, and (he firing was
ordered to be ceased, hvcrytlung indi
rated that the enemy had retired, aud it
was so believed. Gen. McCook roue oil
to sec Gen. l'uell, understood to be two
or three miles on our right. aiting.
perhaps, an hour, I concluded to resume
the march to Lhaplin L reck, then proim
hv a mile to our front, to get water lor
my men who were sull'eriug intensely
tor want ot it. lnero was a small pool
in the bed of the little stream to (he
right of Loomis' two pieces, tJ which
(he 42d Indiana was directed in order to
obtain a supply, and the main column
was then ordered forward; but when
tho head of the column was within a
hundred or (wo yards of Loomis' pieces,
I halted it and went forward to see what
was reported to be the enemy reappear
ing in (he woods beyond, aud in a tew
minutes I could' see him plainly, and the
discharge of shell from three batteries
masked, gave unmistakable evidence of
his preseuce in lorce. 1 ordered Loomis
to reply and bring up tho remainde
of his guns, and sent an order (o Cap
tain bimonson l ilth Indiana Artillery,
(o ioin Loomis, all of which ws prompt
ly done. I then sent an order to Lol
Lytic to form his brigade on tlie rigni
in good posif ion, and g a Hopped oacK to
pUeo IIiAiTia d brigade) mposilion tore
sist the advance of the enemy, which
waa iust informed by a messenger from.
Capt. Wicklille, of Col. Hoard s cavalry,
was being made in that direction in
great force of cavalry, infantry and ar
tillcry. I aided Col. Harris, commands;
tho 'Jth brigade, to form his brigade in
two lines, the 'id Ohio, Lieut. Col. Kell.tho
lOth Wisconsin, Col. Cbapin, and thoo.'.t
Ohio. Lieut. -Col. Moore, being in the
roni line, boon alter this, by a rues
senger. Col. Starkweather, coinni.indin
the 2Slh brigade, announced his arrival
on the left, his brigade having been un
fortunately cut oil and separated Iroi
my division by Gen. Jackson's column that
morning at Mackville, but be had the good
sense when he heard firing in front to
abandon Ihe road, move aiottnd Jackson's
column, and by going through the fields
to fall in on the hfi; and I f .und hi
brigade mi the very spot where it was
most needed, a large body of thei-neiiiy's
cavalry appearing that moment a ini'o
aud a ball to the front, was admirably
shelled and dispersed in great disorder
by Capt. Stone's 1st Kentucky Artillery.

in a few momenta, hut without tho least
confusion or disorder, tliu men moving

lumed to Harris's brigade, hearing that
l). rw.Mw - I ....I
found that tho &d Ohio had been ordered i
.m cm in. i i n. iiiji.ii uiiii. utm
iunner to ine ironi uy vh-ii. aicooK and
was then engaged with the enemy and
leeded support. General iMcCook, in
person, ordered the 2d Ohio to its iiup
port, ami sent directions to me to order
op the 'J Ith Illinois also, Capt. Mauf, com
manding. Iled tho 21lh Illinois in line
of battle immediately forward, and it was
promptly deployed as skirmishers by its
commander, and went gallantly into ac
tion on the left of the S.'jd Ohio. The 2d
Ohio moving up to the support .'5'(d
Ohio was engaged before it arrived on
the ground where (he .J.'ld was ligh(ing.
The :W Indiana, Col. H. F. Sci ibner com
manding, (hen went gallantly into ac'ion
on Ihe right of the 2d Ohio; then fol
lowed in support (he 8th Ohio, Col.
rnzzel. I wish here to say of (his reg
iment, although new and but a few weeks
in the service, behaved most gallantly,
ander tho sleady lead of its brave Colo
nel Frizzell. Col. Harris's whole brigade,
Sinionson's battery on its right, was re-
peatly assailed by overw helming numbers,
but gallnntly held its position. Ihe
SSth Indiana and 2nd Ohio, after ex
huasting their ammunition and that ta
ken from (he boxes of (he dead and
wounded on (he field, still held their po
sition, ns did also, I believe the 10th
Wisconsin and 33rd Ohio. For this gal
lant conduct these brave men are entitled
to tho gratitude of the conntry, and I
thank them here as I did on the field of
battle. After the 21th Illinois went into
action, 1 saw the undisciplined (roops of
General Jackson in front in support of
Parson's battery of Jackson's division
yielding tho field in great confusion, un
der a most terrilic fire of (he enemy, who
was moving in (ho direction of my ex
treme left. General Jackson was killed,
tho support to Parson's battery giving
away, the guns were captured, but the
gallant Captain brought off his horses
and company. Seeing the enemy moving
toward our left in great force, with the
apparent view of turning it, driving some
broken and disordered regiments before
them, I galloped arptuid to Col. Stark
weather on the left and directed him to
open Ins batteries stone ana I5ush
upon Ihe enemy. I he order was promptly
and effectively executed. I ho tiring was
admirable, and the heavy musketry of the
advancing enemy was received by tht
gallant 1st Wisconsin with shouts of do-
lianco (them supporting these batteries),
placing their caps on their bayonet
I ordered the regiment to lio down un
der cover aud await the nearer approach
of the enemy. Hut the artillery rcptils
ed the enemy again and again, and held
him injeheck for several hourstintil final
lya fresh and overwhelming force moved
toward the guns. I should have slated
that the 21st Wisconsin, Col. Sweet, was
to Iho front of these batteries, in a corn
field, Iyiug down, awaiting the approach
of the enemy, and when he approached
with Lis overwhelming force, Uns new
regiment poured into his ranks a most
withering fire. The steady advance and
heavy lire of the enemy, however, caus
ed a portion of this regiment to break in
confusion; but the most of it, under its
gallant oillcers, stood manfully to its
work until forced to retire, which it did
in pretty good order. Vhe enemy were
then in reach of the 1st Wisconsin and
7'Jtli Pennsylvania. I had great confi
dence in the gallantry of these two reg
iments, aud was not disappointed when
this timo of trial came. They drove
back the enemy several times with great
loss, and until their ammunition was ex
hanuleil bravely maintained their posi
tion, and then quietly (not under lire)
returned under orders to the line of bat
tle originally selected by Gen. McCook
and myself, when they got a supply of
ammunition, and were again ready for
action. Their loss was very heavy.
The lire of muakelry on them and the bat
teries was terrific, Captain Hush at that
place losing thirty-live horses, but he and
Si one, lakiug all (heir pieces, fell back
with theirsupports, and at once renewed
the conlliet, and continued it until after
dark. At the time this retrograde, move
ment was ordered, I sent an order to
Colonel Harris to full back also. Tbe
right, Col. Lytle's Ilrigade, bail un hour
before been drawn in, thus contracting
and rendering more compact the lines so
thinned ami depleted by our loss in kill
ed and wounded. Indole this final
struggle on the left , I bail heard that
Lylle's brigade was out-Hanked on the
tight, by an overw helming f jlee of t he
enemy and was falling back. iLiiing
Il.e day I was so hard prosed on tho
h it and e. litre by the continuous and
persi-fent assaults nf the eiiemy, and
knowing if our left was turned our poM
ti.iii was hit and a lolal rout of the

for several hours, and were only forced to
retire alter immense loss, and the move
ment of the enemy above referred to.
Whilst near the loth Kentucky, I saw a
heavy force of the enemy advancing upon
our right, the same that had lurucd.Ly tie's
right flank. It was moving steadily up
in tuu view ol where General Gilberts
army corps had been during the day, the
le.'tnanKot willed was not more than
four hundred yards from it. On approach
ing, tho loth Kentucky, (hough broken
and shattered, rose to its feet and cheer
ed, and as one man moved to the fop of
(lie tun where it could see ihe enemy,
and I ordered it lie down. I then rodo
up to Lomis's battery, and directed him
(o open upon (he enemy. He replied he
was ordered by General McCook to re
serve what ammunition he had lor close
work. Pointing to the enemy advancing,
I said it was close enough and would be
closer in a moment. He at once opened
lire with alacrity and made fearful havoc
upon the ranks of the enemy. It was ad
mirably done, but tho enemy moved
straight ahead; his ranks were raked by
the battery, and terribly thinned by tho
musketry of tho 17th brigade, but lie
scarcely faltered, and finally hearing that
reinforcements were approaching, the
brigade was ordered (o retire and give
place to them, which it did in good order.
The reinforcements Were from Mitchci's
division, as I understood, and wero ' Pea
Kidgonien. 1 wish 1 knew who com
manded (he brigade, that I might do him
justice; I can only say that the brigade
moved directly into tho light like true
soldiers anil opened a terrific light and
drove back the enemy. It was a gallant
body ot men. Alter repulsing the enc
my they retired a few hundred yards to
a piece ot woods to encamp in, and dur
ing the night the enemy advanced his
pickets in the woods on our left front, and
during the night captured a good many
ot our men, who went there believing wt
still held the woods. It was in this way
that my A. A. t.eneral, Lieut, t,. J. Jones
and Lieut. J. A. Grover, A. A. General
17th brigade, were captured by the cue
my. 1 regretted the capture of thesi
voting gentlemen deeply. They had be
haved most gallantly during tho day,
and I can truly say deserve well of (heir
country. Major Hopkins, with three
companies of the 1st Michigan Kngineers
and Mechanics, remained on the field
during tho day, and late in the evening
formed a line of battlo on line with the
portion of the 17th brigade on the left of
the road. Iheir force was too small to
oppose the advancing column of the em
my. They took shelter behind Clark's
house, but were forced to retire wild the
17th brigade, which was done in good
order. They lost quite a number in
wounded and missing.

My division fought it under many dis
advantages. It was attacked on ground
well known to tho enemy, und fixed up
on by him as the battle-field, and while
