Adjutant and Inspector General Reports
Report of Col. James M. Warner, Eleventh Regiment
HEADQUARTERS FIRST ARTILLERY, 11TH Vt. VOLS.
August 27th, 1864
Peter T. Washburn,
Adjutant and Inspector General, State of Vermont
General:-- I have the honor to submit the following report of an engagement in which this Regiment participated on the 21st instant:
About 9 A. M. the picket on our front and flank having been driven in, the 2d Division of the Corps was promptly thrown out, and in a few minutes, had driven the enemy a mile, and completely re-established the line. Almost the entire Regiment were on the skirmish line throughout the day, and were subjected to a hot fire from 9 A. M. until dark.
I regret to announce the loss of Lt. Col. G. E. Chamberlin, who was mortally wounded early in the day, while gallantly leading his Battalion. Col. Chamberlin received a musket ball through the abdomen, and survived but a few hours.
I have already furnished a complete list of casualties, but omitted to mention the loss of a color Sergeant to each Battalion.
I am, General, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant,
J. M. WARNER,
Col. 11th Vt. Vols. Commanding
