Michigan

Address of Col. Isaac D. Toll

then to the attack against five times their number well posted; Company E, its captain wounded, its first lieutenant killed while encouraging the men, its first sergeant mortally wounded, its color-bearer shot down grimly clinging to the staff, which had to be removed by force; one-half of its rank and file disabled! Company A, the other Michigan company, headed by the gallant Beach, also suffering severe loss, devotedly maintained the reputation of the state which it worthily represented. The loved Morgan, the generous and intrepid colonel of the regiment, whose voice, with that of the hero Shields, was heard above the roll of conflict, was struck down/and Mills, of Iowa, the major, emulous of fame, joining the dragoons in the pursuit in the force, gave up his life at St. Antonio's gate. There, too, the adjutant, the chivalrous Brodhead, killed at Chantilly in the war for the Union, was conspicuous for cool courage.
