GENERAL TAYLOR'S DETAILED REPORT OF ri!K BATTLE OF StffiNA VX3TA. 111 A L> Q t * A R1 r.BS, ArMT or Ot'CI'PiTIO!*, > Agua Nueva, Mareli 6, 1847. $ Sir?1 liavo the honor to submit a detailed repoH of the operations of the forces under my command which resulted in the engagement of lluena Vista, the repulse of the Mexican army, and the re-occupation of this position. ""The information which reached mo of the advance and concentration of a bpavy Mexican force In my front, had assumed such a probable form as to induce a special examination far beyond the reach of our pickets to ascertain its correctness. A small parly of Texan spies, under Mitjor MeCuUoch. despatched to the Haeienda of Kncarnacion. 30 miles from this, on the route to Man t.uis Potosi. had reported a cavalry force of unknown strength at that place. On the 20th of February u strong reeonuoisanee under Lieut. Col May was despatched to the Haeienda of Hecliouda, while MaJ. McCuiloeh made another examination of F.nearnacion. The results of these expeditions left no doubt that the enemy was in large tolH at Kneiirtiarion under the orders of Oenerul Santa Anna, and that he meditated a forward movement and attuck upon our position. As the camp of Agua Nuova could be turned on either flank, and as tho enemy's force was greatly superior to our owu, particularly in the arm of cavalry. I determined. alter much consideration, to take up u position about eleven miles In rear, und there await the attack The army broke up its enmp and marched at noon on the 'list, encamping at the new position a little in front of the Hacienda of lluena Vista. With a HUiall force I proceeded to Saltiilo to make some necessary arrangements for the defence of the town, leaving Brigadier (tenarnl Wool in the immediate command of the t roops. Before those arrangements were completed on tho morning of the 22d. I was advised that the enemy was in sight, advancing. L'pou reaching the ground it was found that his ealvalry advance was in our front, having marched from Kncarnaeion, as we have since learned, at 11 o'clock on the day previous, and driving in a mounted foreo left at AuguaS'ueva to cover tho removal of public stores Our troops were in position, occupying a lino of remarkable strength The road at this point becomes a narrow detilo, the valley on its right being rendered quite impracticable for artillery by a system of deep.aml impassable galleys, while on tho left n succession of rug K'-u WW prm ipiioux ntraifn exicUUH lar OHCK 10wants the mountain which bounds the valley, The features of the ground were such as nearly to pnralizc the artillery and cavalry of tile enemy, while his infantry could not derive all the advantage of its numerical superiority. In this position we prepared to receive him Captain Washington's buttery (4th artillery) was posted to command the read, while the 1st and 3d Illinois rcgiincuts under Celencls Hardin and Bissell, each eight companies, (to the latter of which was attached Cuptain Conner's coiupauy of Texas volunteers.) and the 3d Kentucky under Colonel McKee, occupied the crests of the ridges on the left and in rear. The Arkansas and Kentucky regiments of cavalry, commanded by Cols. Veil and II Marshall, occupied the extreme left near the base of the mountain, while the Indiana brigade, under Brigadier General bane, (composedoftlie'jdand 3d regiment* under Cols. Bowles and bane,) the Mississippi riflemen under Cob Davis, the squadrons'of the 1st agid 3d dragoons under Cnpt Htrsn and bieut. Col. May. and the light batteries of ( aptains bhcrman and Bragg. 3d artillery, were held in reserve. At II o'clock ! received from Geu'l Santa Anna a summons to surrender at dlsrretlon. which, with a copy of my reply. I have already Iransmitted. The enemy still forbore his attack, evidently waiting for the arrival of his rear columns, which could be distinctly seen by our look-outs as they approached the field. A demonstration made on his lcfi caused me to detach the 3d Kentucky regiment and a section of artillery to our right, in whicli position they bivouaoked for the night In the mean time the Mexican light troops had engaged ours on the extreme left, [composed of parts of t he Kentucky and Arkansas cavalry dismounted, and a rifle battalion from the lndlaDa*brlgade.und?r Major Gorman, the whole comuiundcd'hy (Job Marshall.] and kept up a sharp tire, climbing the mountain side, and apparently endeavoring to gain our flank. Throe pieces of ( apt. Washington's battery had been detached to the left, and were supported by the 3d ludiuua regiment. An occasional sht 11 wa* thrown by the enemy Into this part of ourllnc.but without off< et. '1 he skirmishing of our light troops was kept up with trifling loss on our part until dark, when I lieenmo convinced that no serious attaek would he mails before the morning, and returned with the Mississippi regiment and sijuadrou of 3d dragoons to Saltlllo The troops bivouacked without flres, and laid upon their arms A body of cavalry. some 1.500 strong, hud been visible sll day in rear of the town, having entered the valley through a narrow pass cast ef the city. This cavalry. commanded by Gen Minna, had evidently been thrown in our rear to break up and barns* our retreat, and perhaps make some attempt against the town If practicable The eity was occupied by four excellent companies of Illinois volunteers, under Major Warren of ths 1st regiment. A tleldwnrk. which commanded most of the approaches, was garrisoned by I apt Webster's company. 1st artillery, and armed with two 34 pound howltsors, while til* train and hsad<tuart?r camp was guarded by two companies of Mississippi riflemen under i apt. lingers, snd a flsld plane commanded by Captain Hhover, 3d artillery Having mane mess imposition* ror the protection of tba rear, I proceeded on tho morning of the 33 ' to Buena Vleta. ordering forward all tho oilier available oops Tba action had commenced before my arrival on the field During the evening and night of tho 33d. the enemy had thrown a body of light troop* on the mountain vide, with the purpooe ?f outflanking our left and it win here that the action of the 53d commenced at an early hour. Our riflemen under Colonel Marshall. who had been reinforced by three companies under Major Trail, 3d 1111nole volunteera. maintained their grouod handsomely, ugainit a greatly superior force, holding themselves under covor, and using their weapon* with deadly effect About 8 o'clock a strong demonstration was made against the centre of our po*itlon. n heavy column moving along the road 'J'hla force w?? ioon dispersed by a few rapid and well-directed shota from Captain Washington's battery In the meantime the enemy was concentrating a large force of infantry and cavalry under cover Of the riders, with the obvious Intention of forcing our left, which was posted on nn extensive plateau The 3d Indiana and 3d Illinois regiments formed this part of our line, the former covering three nieces of light artillery, under the order* of Captain O'Brien-Brigadier General l.ane being in tlir Immediate command In order to bring his men within effective range, (Ion Dane ordered the artillery and 3d Indiana regiment forward The artillery advanced within musket range of a heavy body of Mexican infantry, and was served against It with great effect, hut without being aide to check its advance. The infantry ordered to Its support had fallen hark In disorder, being exposed, as well as the battery, itot only to severe Are of snuiil arins from tho front, lint also to n murderous cross tire of grape and ennlster from a Mexican battery on the left Captain O'Brien found It Impossible to retain his position without support, bat was only aide to withdraw two of his pieces, all the horsas and cannonoari of tba third piece being killed or disabled. The RK H r MORNING. APRIL 21, H FROM LIVERPOOL FOR NEW 1 ARCH, 1847. 9(1 Indiana regiment. which" hail fallen back as" stated, could not bo rallied, and took no further part in the action, except a handful of men, who. under IU gallant Colonel. Bowles, joined the Mississippi regiment, anil did good service. and those fugitives who, at a inter period In tho diiT. assisted In dcfeudlhg the train and depot ut. Htiona Vlata. This portion of our line having given way. and the enemy appearing in overwhelming force against our loft flank, tho light troops which had rendered such good sorvicc on the mountain, were compelled to withdraw, which they did, for the most part, in good order. Many, however, were not rallied until they reached the depot nt lluenn Vista, to tho defbnbc Of Whioh they afterwards eontributed. Colonel BissaU's regiment, (2d Illinois.) which had been joined by a section of Captain Hherinan's battery, hail become completely outflanked, and was compelled to fall back, being entirely unsupported. The enemy was now pouring masses of infantry and cavalry aloug tho base of the mountain on our lvft, and was gaining our rear in great force. At this moment, I arrived upon tho field. Tho Mississippi regiment had been directed to tbe left before reaching tho position, and immediately came into nctiou against the Mexican infantry whioh had turned our flank. Tho 2d Kentucky regiment and a section of artillery under I aptaiu Bragg, had previously been ordered from the right to reinforce our left, nnd arrived at a most opportune moment. That regiment, and a portion of the 1st Illinois, under Colonel Hardin. gallantly drove the enemv. and recovered n nortlon of the ground wu hod lost The lotteries of Captain.'* Sherman anil Hrupg were in pofdtioii on tho plateau, and did much execution, not only In front, but particularly upon the masses which hud gained our rear. Discovering that tile enemy was heavily pressing upon tho Miaalaaippl regiment. the third Indiana regiment, under Colonel Lane, was despatched to strengthen that part of our lino, which formed a crotchet pvrpeudicular to the tlrat lino of battle. At the name time Lieut. Kilburn, with a pieco of Captain Uragg's battery, was directed to support the infantry there engaged Tho aetion was for a long time warmly sustained at that point?the enemy making several efforts both with Infantry and cavalry against our linc/l and being always repulsed with heavy low. I had placed all the regular cavalry and Captain I'ike's squadron of Arkansas horse under tho orders of Brevet Lieut. Col. May. with directions to hold in cheek the enemy's column, still advancing to the rear along the base of the mouutain. which was dono in conjunction with the Kentucky and Arkansas cavalry, under Cols Marshall and Veil. In tho meantime our left, which was still strongly threatened by a superior force, was further strengthened by the detachment of Captain Bragg's, and a portion of Captain Sherman's batteries, to that quarter. The concentration of artillery tire upon the masses of the enemy along the base of tho mountain, and the determined, resistance offered by tlie two regiments opposed to them, bad created confusion In their ranks, and some of the corps attempted to effect a retreat upon their main l'ne of buttle. The squadron of the 1st dragoons, under Lieut. Kueker. was now ordered up the deep ravine which these retreating corps ware endeavoring to cross, in order to charge and disperse them. Tho squadron proceeded to the point indi ated, but could not accomplish I he object, being exposed tn a heavy tiro from a battery established to cover the retreat of those corps. While the squadron was detached on this scrvire, a large body of the enemy was obaerred to coucentrote on our extreme left, apparently willi the view of making a descent upon the hacienda of Duena Vista, where our train and baggage were deposited. I.lout. Colonel May was ordered to the support of that point, with two ptoses of.Captain Sherman's battory under Lieut. Reynolds. In the meantime, the scattered forces near the hacienda, comprised in part of Majors Trail and Gorman's commands, had been to some extent organized under the advice of Majir.Munroe, chief ot artillery, with the assistance of Major Morrison, volunteer staff, and wore posted to defend the position. Before our cavalry had reached the hacienda, that of the enemy had made Its attack, having been handsomely met by the Kentucky ami Arkansas cavalry under Colonels Marshall and Yell. The Mexican column immediately 'divided, one portion sweeping by the depot, where it reeeived a destructive Are from tlio foree which had collected there, and then Gaining the mountain opposite, under a Are frein Lieut, leynolds'i section, the remaining portion regaining the base of the mountain on our left. In the charge at Buena Vista. Col. Yell fell gallantly at tbo Iscad of his regiment. We also lost Adjutant Vaughau, of the Kentucky cavalry, a young officer of much promise. Lieut. Col. May, who had been rejoined by the squadron of the 1st dragoons, and by portions of the Arkansas and Indiana troops under Lieut. Col. Roane nud Major Gorman, now approached the base of the mountain, holding in check the right Hank of the enemy, upon whose masses, crowded in the narrow gorges and ravines, our artillery was doing fearful execution Tlie position of that portion of tho Mexican army which had gained our rear was now very critical, and It germed douhtfui whether It could regain tho main body. At thia moment 1 received froiu (Jen Sanlu Anna a mes?ngn liy a staff officer, desiring te know what I wanted ' I immediately despatched Brig (Jon Wool to the Mexican feneral-iu-chief. and sent order* to cease firing. I'pon reaching the Mexican line*. (Jen. Wool could not cause the enemy to oeaee their tire, ami accordingly returned without having an Interview The extreme right of the enemy continued Ite retreat along the base of tho mountain, anil finally, in spite of all our effort*, effected a junction with the rnmaladrrof the army During the day, the cavalry of General Minon had a*cended the elevated plain above Haltillo. and occupied the road from the city to the field of battle, where they intercepted *everal of our men Approaching the town, they were fired upon by < apt Webster from tho redoubt occupied by hi* company, and then moved off toward* the eastern side of the valley, and obliquely toward* llueua Vista At. this time, < apt ftbover moved rapidly forward with hi* piece, lupported by a mlscellaiieou* command of mounted volunteers, and tired several shots at the cavalry with great effvrt. They were driven Into the ravine* which lead to the lower valley, eloiejy pursued by ( apt. Shover, who was further supported by a piece of ('apt. Webster's battery, under Lieut. Donaldson. which had advanced from the redoubt, supported by ('apt Wheeler's company Illinois volunteer* The enemy made one or two effort* to charge the artillery, hut wo* finally driven bark In a confused man*, and did did not again appear upon the plain. In the meantime the firing had partially ceased upon the principal field. Tho enemy seemed to confine hi* efforts to the protection of hi* artillery, and I had left the plateau for a moment, when I was recalled thither by a very heavy musketry fire On regaining that position I discovered that our Infantry (Illinois and ad Ken .

Though the night was severely cold, the troops were compelled for the most to birouack without tires, expecting that morning would renew tho conflict. During the night the wounded were removed to Haltillo, and every preparation made to receive the enemy should he again nttack our position.? Seven fresh companies were drawu from tile town, and brigadier General Marshall, who had made a forced march from tho Rlnconada. with n reinforcement of Kentucky cavalry and four heavy guns, under Captain Prentiss. 1st artillery, was near at hand, when it was discovered that the enemy had abandoned his positlrm during the night. Our.scouts soon ascertained that he hud fallen hack upon -Agua Nuova The great disparity of numbers, und the cxhnustion of our troops, rendered it inexpedient and hazardous to attempt pursuit, A stall ofHeer *M despatched to Ocneral Mama Anna to nego- j tint" au cichauge of prisoners, which wax satisfactorily completed on the following duy Our own (lead were collected and buried, and the Mexican wounded, of which a large numbur had been left upon the held, weru removed to Haltlllo, and rendered ae comfortable us elrcumstanrcs would permit On the eveuing of the '20th, a cloee reconnoisanro was made of tho enemy's position, which was found to he oe- j enpled only by a small body of rnvalry, the infantry and artillery haying retreated in tho direction of San Luis Potosi. On the '27tli. our troops resumed their former rainp at Agua Nuova, tho enemy's rear guard evacuating the place as wo approached, leaving a considerable number of wounded It was my purpose to beat up his quarters at Knearnarion early the next morning, hut upon examination, the weak condition of tho cavalry horses rendered it unadvisablo to attempt so long a march withoutjwator. A command was finally despatched to Kncarnacion, on the 1st of March, under < ol. Iielkiisp. Some two hundred wouuded, and about sixty Mexican soldiers were found there, the army having pnxsed on in the direction of Matehuala. with greatly reduced numbers. and suffering much from hunger. The dead and dying were strewed upon the road, aud crowded the buildings of the hacienda. The American force engaged in the action of Iluena Vista is shown, by the accompanying field report, to have been 3.14 officers, and I i'25 men. exclusive of the small command left in ami near Saltillo.
