Report of Major David W. Megraw, One hundred and sixteenth Pennsylvania Infantry, of operations March 25.1

HDQRS. 116TH REGIMENT PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS.
March 26, 1865

LIEUTENANT: In compliance with orders received, I have the honor to submit the following report:

This command left camp yesterday afternoon about 3 o’clock, marched out to line formerly occupied by picket-line; formed line of battle; remained in this position for about half an hour. Orders were then received to fall in and march to the left; which was done. We had advanced but a short distance, when orders were given to move by the flank; advanced through the woods in line of battle; little or no firing on our side; sent out details on skirmish line; withdrew them about midnight on the 25th instant.

No casualties in our immediate command.

Respectfully submitted.

DAVID W. MEGRAW.
Major, Commanding Regiment.

Lieutenant S. P. CORLISS,
Acting Assistant Adjutant-General.
