Killed–Lieutenant Nathan S. Mosely, sergeant George W. Davis, privates Myrick D. Duke and James R. Reavis, (the latter was [illegible, one line creased].  Wounded–Captain J. R.

At the opening of the campaign Johnston’s brigade was encamped at Taylorsville, Va., on the R. T. & P. R. R., which place it left on the 4th of May, at 11, a. m., and marched to Mine Run, a distance of sixty-six miles in twenty-three hours.  No sooner had we reached that place, than we threw up breastworks, which were no sooner finished than we had to abandon them, and attack the enemy, completely routing them, and thereby succeeding in turning their right flank.
