You will find this report nearly correct, I think: a good many of our men were sent off to the different hospitals immediately, and I did not have the opportunity of examining all of them, so I have had to rely on others for a part of my information.

Yours in haste,
Asst. Surgeon, 94th N. Y. V.

Total killed, 21

Total wounded, 83

Total missing, 40

Total killed, wounded and missing, 144

Our readers will notice that the above list was made out giving the names of those killed, wounded or missing in Saturday's battle. The 94th fought again on Monday last losing a small number who are not accounted for here.

Gallantry of the 94th

We know that they took a prominent part in the desperate fight against Longstreet at Thoroughfare Gap, and are highly praised for their valor on that dreadful field. Any regiment which stands and fights while other regiments are breaking and fleeing, which rallies after being broken up by our own panic-stricken forces, and bravely continues the battle, is a credit to the county from which it went. Up to Monday morning the 94th had lost 109 killed and wounded, and 40 missing, since which time it has in at least one battle, that of Monday afternoon and evening. While we mourn for our killed and wounded brothers and friends, let us be comforted by the recollection that they fell as heroes and martyrs fall-in a cause in which their death is glorious, and let us send forth fresh men to take their vacant places, and fill the shattered ranks.
