"Headquarters 1st Calvary Division, Army of West La., May 8, 1864
General Order No. -
The Brig. Gen. commanding takes occasion to call the
attention of their comrades to the gallantry displayed by the
officers and men of Terrell's and Liken's regiments in the
engagement with the enemy on the 2d inst., at the
Chambers' plantation, in charging his largely superior force
of calvary and infantry, strongly posted in the negro quarters
on the plantation, and behind a fence running east of the
trench, against five fold odds they charged with a yell, led on
by Col. Terrell driving the enemy in confusion, at sunset from
their position: the example of those men should excite the
emulation of the army to renewed efforts to drive from the
land the enemy who now attempts to waste by fire a
country he has been unable to conquer by the sword.
By command of
Brig. Gen. A.P. BAGBY,
J.P. Smith, A.A.G. Commanding Division"
