Report of Colonel George T. Egbert, One hundred and eighty-third Pennsylvania Infantry, of operations March 25.1

HEADQUARTERS 183rd PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS,
March 26, 1865.

CAPTAIN: I have the honor to report that my regiment, under command of Lieutenant Colonel A. T. Lynch, moved from the line of works it had occupied on the morning of the 25th instant and took position in line of battle supporting our advanced skirmish line. The regiment followed the line as it advanced during the day. About 5 p. m. the enemy advanced in some force on our skirmish line, driving it back upon the support. The regiment immediately opened a fire upon the advancing party, who quickly retired. In about an hour the enemy advanced again and were repulsed after a musketry engagement lasting about half an hour. About 11 p. m. the regiment moved back with the brigade to camp. The following list of casualties occurred during the day.*

Very respectfully,

GEO. T. EGBERT,
Colonel, Commanding Regiment.

Captain WILLIAM McCALLISTER,
Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, First Brigade.
