HEADQUARTERS HEBERT'S BRIGADE,
May 21, 1863.
MAJOR: I have the honor to report, as far as can be ascertained, the effect of to-day's engagement on the line of my brigade. Soon after daylight, the enemy opened their batteries and line of sharpshooters, and kept up their fire with rapidity and serious effect during the day, to dark; even since an occasional shot is fired from one of their batteries. Besides undergoing the fire on my brigade front, my extreme right has suffered from the sharpshooters on the left of Brigadier-General Moore, and very severely from a battery in front of Brigadier-General Moore. This battery has been very effective against my headquarters.
The enemy's sharpshooters are in close proximity, and their batteries have injured much of our parapets. The two 20-pounder Parrotts remaining on my line have been dismounted, and are unserviceable. One 12-pounder howitzer is disabled, though it may yet fire a few shots. Damages will be repaired as far as practicable to-night.
Casualties.--Killed: Captain Gomez, Twenty-third Louisiana Infantry; Captains Chrisman and Tatom, Thirty-sixth Mississippi, and 3 enlisted men. Wounded: Capt. C. A. Bruslé, aide-de-camp, and 12 enlisted men.
