COMPANY K, 7TH, WIS, REGT.
Quartermaster Shirrell of the 7th Regiment in a letter dated Warrenton,
July 24th, giving the list of causalities found below says:
ENCLOSED YOU WILL FIND A LIST OF THE CAUSALITIES IN CO. K. 7TH REGIMENT. IT
SHOULD HAVE BEEN SENT ON BEFORE NOW, BUT THE FACT IS WE HAVE BEEN PUT THROUGH
ON A DOUBLE QUICK EVER SINCE WE LEFT OUR POSITION OPPOSITE FREDERICKSBURG.
This is the 47th day that we have been on the move and during that time have not,
with just one or two exception, stopped more that one night at a place. We
have had long and tedious marches through the hot sun, rain and mud, finally
came up with Lee; the result you already know. Our loss in the Gettysburg fight
was heavy but that of the rebels most fearful.
The old "Iron Brigade " was as usual the first into the fight and
before reinforcements could reach them they were very badly used up. Before
going in they drew rations for 2250 men; they now draw for but 850 men. The 7th
now draws for but 191 men.
There are but a few of them, but
they cannot be whipped; you can "bet" on that.
I know not how you look at it at home, but I assure you that it is
"glory" enough for any one man in these parts to have the honor of
belonging to the old "Iron Brigade."
