March 27, 1865.
I have the honor to report the following as the part taken by the Fifth Regiment Vermont Veteran Volunteers on the 25th instant:
As the brigade was massed before the advance commenced the Fifth formed the left of the third line. The first advance was to the work occupied by the first line; the second was to the crest, out the left of the small work in which were the mortars. After lying here until 5 p.m. were ordered to move to the front and right of the house situated on the old picket-line to await further orders. In obedience to further orders the regiment returned to camp at 11 p.m.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
R. A. KENNEDY,
Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding Fifth Vermont Veteran Volunteers.
