No. 61. Report of Lieutenant Colonel Charles Kleckner, One hundred and eighty-fourth Pennsylvania Infantry, of operations October 26-28.1

HDQRS.184TH REGIMENT PENNSYLVANIA VOLUNTEERS, October 29, 1864.

SIR: I have the honor to forward the following report of the operations of this regiment since the 26th instant:

Breaking camp on the afternoon of the 26th instant, we marched in connection with the brigade, bivouacking late same night a mile or two beyond the Gurley house. Resumed the march about 4 a.m. next morning (27th instant). Came in contact with the enemy at noon, and during the engagement which followed were merely engaged in shifting position, losing 6 men killed, 10 wounded; missing, as yet uncertain, as they are coming in at intervals, the last report being 35. Withdrawing at 1 or 2 a.m. on the 28th instant, we returned to present camp, arriving at 5 p.m. or thereabouts.

Very respectfully,
CHAS. KLECKNER,

Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding.

[Captain RYERSON,]

Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, First Brigade.
