General;
On the fourth page, at 2nd clause, beginning; "similar instances of persevering
skill & courage, etc. it would be justice to my brigade to mention that they held, during
two days, a position on the same skirmish line with the enemy. This was when Deas had
been forced back and Brantley, in consequence was compelled to retire his line. I held
my original line tow days, one day loosing [losing] 37 men.
I thank you for the complimentary mention of my brigade.
Resp,
Sharp
[Brig. Genl. Jacob Hunter Sharp, 44th Mississippi]
