HEADQUARTERS FIRST REGIMENT U. S. SHARPSHOOTERS, October 7, 1864.
CAPTAIN: I have the honor to submit the following report showing the part taken by First U. S. Sharpshooters from September 30 to October 5:
Near m. October 1 the regiment broke camp, went aboard the cars at Hancock’s Station, and was transported to Warren’s Station, where it
debarked near the Yellow Tavern; bivouacked for the night two miles from the railroad. Moved forward the following morning, skirmishing with the enemy, and sustaining a loss of three wounded. Was relieved with the brigade Sunday afternoon; went one mile and a half to the rear, and remained in temporary camp until the evening of the 5th instant, when it returned to the position in the line it now occupies.
HENRY C. GARRISON,
Captain, Commanding Regiment.
