- The regiment under my command [at Franklin] was simply used as a support for there first line; not being itself actually engaged, of course acted only a secondary part; still, I think the part was well maintained. I noticed a great improvement in the morale of the recruits, who had reached me but a short time previous to the battle of Franklin, and found them pretty well broken in to stand about the only fire they were exposed to, that of the enemy’s artillery. My total loss was 11 men–1 killed and 10 wounded.
