Numbers 145. Statement of Brig. Gen. Joseph Hayes, U. S. Army, commanding First Brigade, of operations August 18-19.1

[General Hayes’ statement was transmitted to General U. S. Grant November 26, 1867, and is on file in the office of the Adjutant-General of the Army. Not having been made within a reasonable time subsequent to occurrences which it narrates (decision of the Secretary of War of December 6, 1876), and not being regarded as “contemporaneous official records of the war of the rebellion” under the act of Congress, approved October 2, 1888, it is here omitted.]
