    Brigadier General James Veatch Printed Report of the Battle of the Hatchie's Bridge. Two pages of a bifolium, 8.5" x 9"; Bolivar, Tennessee; October 9, 1862. Heading at top: "Head-Quarters, Second Brigade, Fourth Division." Veatch begins his report by listing the regiments assigned to be under his command, including the 15th Illinois, 25th Indiana, 46th Illinois, 14th Illinois, 53rd Indiana, Bolton's Battery, Burnap's Battery, and the 68th Ohio. His report gives a full account of all troop movements and engagements, and provides a list of killed and wounded, by regiment. The total losses for his forces were 20 killed and 258 wounded.

    Also known as the Battle of Davis Bridge, this report is dated just 4 days after the engagement; suggesting that this is likely a field printing.

    Expertly restored, adding paper along the horizontal folds affecting some text. Scattered foxing, with rough edges along the bottom of integral page.
