Before Port Hudson, June 4, 1863.
P. T. Washburn, Adjutant and Inspector General:
Sir:-- For the benefit of all concerned, I enclose to you a list of the killed, wounded and missing i the 8th Regiment, i our grand charge upon, and for the possession of, the enemy's out-works at Port Hudson, May 27, 1863. The regiment was, as usual, in "the front," and, as usual, behaved nobly. We now hold the out-works, within two hundred yards of his entrenchments, and are engaged as "Sharp Shooters" -- standing guard over his artillery, to pick off the gunners and prevent its use.Respectfully your ob't servant, C. DILLINGHAM, Lieut. Col. Com'd'g Regiment.
