    From the Progress
    Battle of Bentonsville
    Camp Palmer’s Brigade March 23
    Never was there more dash and gallantry displayed than was exhibited by Palmer’s 
    Brigade in their successful assaults upon the breastworks of the enemy
    Mr. Editor:
    The above is an extract from an earlier issue by Major General Stevenson complimenting
    the troops of his division for their gallantry in the late fight at Bentonsville.  AS the 58th and 
    60th N.C.T. are in Palmer’s Brigade, it will be a source of gratification to their numerous 
    friends to learn that they acted with great gallantry in this their first fight upon the soil of their 
    native state.  The brigade was selected as the directing column and at 3:00 p.m. moved 
    steadily to the assault under the immediate observation of Generals Stewart, Hill, Stevenson 
    and Palmer.  It was the first brigade which reached the enemy’s breastworks which they 
    carried and without a halt, hastened forward to attack them in their second and stronger position.  
    Here the enemy had a strong line, supported by artillery but they were again forced back 
    by the courageous and determination of our troops.  The brigade at this point captured 
    several pieces of artillery and a number of prisoners.  They moved forward a half mile to the 
    front under a heavy fire with the command was given to halt and re-establish a more perfect 
    line.  Nevertheless, a portion of the brigade still moved forward and pierced the works of the 
    Yankee army.  Not being supported, this portion of the brigade came very near being captured.
    A strong Yankee line was formed in the rear and some 150 men finding that they were cut 
    off from their command were forced to tear their glorious banners from their staffs and 
    commence the tedious and daring task of rejoining their command by flanking from the 
    rear of Sherman’s entire left wing.
    Several men from this party have arrived in camp after having passed through Sherman’s 
    rear ordnance train and we have great hopes that the greater part of the numbers will rejoin 
    us shortly.
    Had the nature of the ground permitted the rapid movement of troops, there is no doubt that 
    our success would have been complete.  Too much praise cannot be given to General Jos. 
    B. Palmer and the skillful manner in which he handled the troops of his brigade on this 
    occasion.  Ever foremost in the midst of the fight, he inspired his command with that 
    courage and determination which can know no defeat.  In fact, both officers and men acted 
    nobly and taught Sherman a lesson he will never forget.
    The Army of the Tennessee has at last learned that it is within their power to defeat Sherman 
    whenever they are willing to charge as they did on this occasion.
    The losses of the brigade were quite severe probably twice as great as any other brigade in 
    the army.  It seemed almost miraculous that anyone could escape under such a heavy fire 
    from the enemy.  The battlefield being a dense pine forest afforded great protection to our 
    advancing column.  Our brigade lost several valuable field officers.  Capt. Lowe, Inspector 
    General on Palmer’s staff who has always acted with great gallantry was seriously but not 
    mortally wounded.
    Colonel W.S. Devane of the 61st N.C.T. who was badly wounded in the neck in the Battle of 
    Bentonsville is in a private house in this city.
