Our battalion captured two pieces of artillery and one hundred and 6 prisoners in the first charge in the morning of Sunday and then in the evening at 4 o'clock our division made a charge on their breast works and the 13 and Von Zinken lead them so they had like to run over Yankees guns and everything else.
