Address of Col. Isaac D. Toll

that gallant regiment evinced, in all the trials of that harrassing warfare, the fidelity and devotion which has ever characterized the patriot soldier of the " Amcenam Peninsulam." Our state also claims the credit which attached to the memorable achievements of Company K, Third Dragoons, and Companies A, E and G, of the Fifteenth Regiment of United States Infantry. We find the dragoons, in addition to severe work in guarding specie-bearing trains over roads infested by guerrillas, engaged at Paso de Ovejas, where they drove the marauders to their mountain fastness. These mounted men being comparatively few, their duties as videttes, escorts to trains, conveying dispatches, reconnoitering—in fine, doing all the work of the invading army, requiring great celerity, besides being pitted against the far more numerous and active cavalry of the enemy, well mounted and accoutered—can hardly be described. Selected as guard at headquarters for their fine military bearing and efficiency, the deadly field of Churu-busco attested that the honor was well deserved.
