About the unit: The regiment was commanded by Colonel Robert McAllister, who was wounded on the 2nd. Major Kearney had already been mortally wounded, and Captain Luther Martin took over. He was wounded in the foot, and while trying to make his way to the rear was wounded again in the thigh and chest, the latter being mortal. Captain William Loyd then briefly took command until he, too, was wounded. Lt. John Schoonover took over until late in the afternoon when he was also wounded, with the regiment ending the day under the command of Captain Samuel T. Sleeper.
