Further From the 4th Michigan
Capt. Geo. Spaulding, of this Regiment, reached home on Saturday last, on recruiting service, in good health and spirits. He furnishes us with a little information concerning the dead and wounded of the Regiment, in addition to what we have already published.
Col. Woodbury was shot lat in the day on Tuesday the 1st Inst., and died instantly. He was carried to the rear by one of the musicians, and after the battle fell into hands of the Surgeon, who had him buried.
Capt. Rose was shot in the same battle and at about the same time. He died instantly, and was left on the field.
All the Monroe boys who lost their lives during the seven days fighting, were killed in this battle, and were all left on the field in the hands of the enemy.
Sherman Plues, wounded by a musket ball through the jaws, and who was reported among the missing, is now reported in hospital at Washington, though nothing entirely reliable has been heard.
Geo. Paul and Charles Bisbee are at some of the hospitals about Washington. Capt. Spaulding saw them taken to Harrison’s Landing to go on board transports, before he left.
Sergt. Whipple, wounded in the head, has reached this city.
Of the others who were reported missing last, viz: Gibson, Knaggs, Corser, Navarre, Fournier, Teachout, Watson, Mosier, Kidder, and Baker, nothing further is known.
