« Col. E. H. Phelps, of the 38th Ohio, was killed. He was a gallant man. He was first wounded while leading his men up the hill, but not mortally. Not willing to be left behind the charging forces, supported by some of his soldiers, he continued to lead his Brigade to the top of the hill, where, while cheering his men on to victory, he was again hit and died almost instantly. He had been in command of the 3d Brigade, 3d Division, 14th Army Corps, since the re-organization of the Army in October, and had made himself its loved and popular commander. The army has lost in him a good officer, and the country a devoted and patriotic defender. »
