    GENERAL ORDERS,} HDQRS. ARMY OF THE POTOMAC, Numbers 96. } October 15, 1863.

    The major-general commanding announces to the army that the rear guard, consisting of the Second Corps, was attacked yesterday while marching by the flank.

    The enemy, after a spirited contest, was repulsed, losing 2 colors, a battery of 5 guns, and 450 prisoners.

    The skill and promptitude of Major-General Warren, and the gallantry and bearing of the officers and soldiers of the Second Corps, are entitled to high commendation.

    By command of Major-General Meade:

    S. WILLIAMS,
    Assistant Adjutant-General.
    __________________________________________________ _____________
    HEADQUARTERS SECOND ARMY CORPS,
    Near Blackburn's Ford, Va., October 16, 1863.

    Brigadier General S. WILLIAMS,
    Assistant Adjutant-General:

    GENERAL: I beg leave to inform the general commanding that his order expressing his approval of the conduct of this corps on the 14th instant is received with enthusiasm by officers and men. If I may speak for the corps, I will say that it is satisfied if it received no other praise than his, and is ready to perform its part of the plans of the commanding general in the future, as has done in the past.

    I have the honor to be, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

    G. K. WARREN,
    Major-General, Commanding.

    Numbers 45. Report of Brigadier General Alexander Hays, U. S. Army, commanding Third Division.


    AUBURN, FAUQUIER COUNTY, VA.,
    October 22, 1863.


    SIR: I have the honor, according to instructions, to forward this report of the operations of the Third Division, Second Army Corps, during the day of the 14th:
    The division, excepting the first brigade, which had been retained as guard to train, marched from bivouac at daybreak. Crossing the stream at Auburn, it was directed to take the road to Catlett's Station, on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. Here the march was opposed by the rebels in such force as to render precautions necessary. A light skirmish line was thrown forward, but was soon repulsed by the rebel cavalry. The entire regiment of the One hundred and twenty-sixth New York Volunteers, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel J. M. Bull, was then moved forward, supported by the Twelfth New Jersey Volunteers. In a short time our force came in conflict with the rebels. It was short, but very decisive. The rebel cavalry led by Colonel Thomas Ruffin, charged furiously upon the deployed One hundred and twenty-sixth and were most gallantly repulsed, with the loss of their leader, who was mortally wounded.

    Our march from this point past Catlett's Station and along the railroad was not interrupted until we arrived at Bristoe Station. It was there announced that the rebels were advancing in line of battle to attack our flank. As soon as possible the successive brigades of the division were put in rapid motion and flanked to meet the rebel line. The contest was for possession of the line of railroad, which afforded a strong defense. We gained it and met the rebels with a withering fire of musketry, while our artillery played upon them from our rear. The results of our victory are marked by 2 stand of colors and the possession of 5 pieces of artillery which the rebels left behind.

    General Webb's, the Second Division, occupied our right, while General Caldwell's, the First Division, held the position on our left. Colonel Carroll, commanding the First Brigade of the Third Division, also arrived from the rear, and took position on the extreme left of the line of battle.

    After the first repulse of the rebels, the Second Brigade of the Third Division, commanded by Colonel Smyth, advanced through the dense grove of pines in advance of the left of the division, and approached the point of attack. In the meantime a line of skirmishers, commanded by Colonel C. D. MacDougall, One hundred and eleventh Regiment New York Volunteers, detailed from regiments, brigades, and divisions, without distinction, advanced to the wood and withdrew the artillery captured. A second attack was attempted, but was repulsed by our artillery, without the aid of infantry.

    I respectfully refer to the accompanying reports of my brigade commanders for full particulars, Brigadier General J. T. Owen, commanding Third Brigade; Colonel S. S. Carroll, commanding First Brigade, and Colonel T. A. Smith, commanding Second Brigade. To them and to their subordinate officers and men is due the credit of our almost perfect success.

    To my personal staff, Asst. Adjt. General G. P. Corts; aides Lieuts. D. Shields and J. S. Sullivan; Lieutenant W. E. Potter, ordnance officer, and Captain J. C. Lynch, division inspector, I feel deeply indebted for their effective assistance in the attack and on all other occasions.

    I inclose herewith the nominal lists of the killed, wounded, and missing, also a general summary of the same, showing the loss of the division to be 1 commissioned officer killed and 11 wounded; 19 enlisted men killed, 133 wounded, and 35 missing; total loss, 199.*
    Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

    ALEX. HAYS,
    Brigadier-General of Volunteers, Commanding Division.

    Lieutenant Colonel FRANCIS A. WALKER,
    Assistant Adjutant-General.

    Looks like the weather gods are smiling on this event this weekend. Good luck and good times to one and all.

    Sniff. Sniff. Can't recall the last time I had to miss a battalion event.

    Sigh.

    Bill,

    Here's the good news. You get to play next weekend.

    At least, that's what I kept telling the voices in my head as I hammered down on the last of extended individual tax returns instead of jumping in the van with only a bone toothbrush and a ragged dress and heading to Perryville.

    You know, I could be there by breakfast............

    That was one event that I'm sorry I missed and it looked like a great time was had by all of those that went. It seems as of late that Bristoe is finally getting some recognition that it rightly deserves after all these years. Until recently the North Carolinians that were killed there were forgotten about, but I have noticed that there have been articles on the Battle of Bristoe Station appearing.
