    Antietam after battle report:

    Report of Capt. Thomas M. Garrett, Fifth North Carolina
    Infantry, of the battle of Sharpsburg.

    CAMP, October 11, 1862.
    SIR: I have the honor so submit the following report of the operations of the
    Fifth North Carolina Troops in the action of October [September] 17 at
    Sharpsburg:

    At an early hour in the morning and shortly after the battle had opened with
    musketry, the regiment was moved along with the brigade by the left flanks
    across the open field north of the town in the direction of the firing. The
    brigade was halted upon the left of the "burning house," and formed in line
    of battle. While halted here for a few minute, and while passing to our
    position, we were subjected to a very severe cross-fire from the enemy's
    artillery, and had the misfortune to lose for the day Lieut. Charles R. King,
    commanding Company H, who was wounded severely
    in the arm by the fragment of shell. The regiment,
    being formed in line on the right of the brigade, was moved forward rapidly
    across the open field and over a fence into the woods in front. Here a state
    of confusion ensued which it is difficult to portray. Various conflicting
    orders (mere suggestion, perhaps, taking that shape) were passed down the
    line, the men in rank being allowed by the officers to join in repeating them,
    so that it became utterly impossible to understand which emanated from the
    proper authority. The regiment, following the movements of the brigade,
    which were vacillating and unsteady, obliquing to the right and left, came
    upon a ledge of rock and earth, forming a fine natural breastwork. Under the
    covered of this the regiment, following the example of those on the left, fell
    down and sought shelter. Seeing a regiment of the enemy coming up in the
    open field in our front and somewhat on the flank, and the breastwork
    turning where the right of the regiment rested in such a manner as to expose
    a few files of men of my regiment, I ordered these to deploy as flankers to
    the right and take shelter behind the trees. At this moment, and while
    directing this movement, Capt. [T. P.] Thomson, Company G, came up
    to me, and in a very excited manner and tone cried out to me, "They are
    flanking us! See, younder's a whole brigade!" I ordered him to keep silence
    and return to his place. The men before this were far from being cool, but,
    when this act of indiscretion occurred, a panic ensued, and, despite the
    efforts of file-closers and officers, they began to break and run. I have
    employed this language in regard to Capt. Thomson's conduct because he
    remained upon the ground and exerted himself to really the men, and, while
    it manifests clearly a want of capacity to command, my observation of him
    did not produce a conviction that it proceeded from a cowardly temper. I
    gave an order to the few men who remained--not more than 10 in number--to
    retire, fence in our rear. A few rallied by the example of Lieut. Isaac E.
    Pearce, commanding Company B, who acted with great spirit, and all of the
    men belonging to my company present in the regiment rallied to my side.
    With them I made a stand at the fence, and ordered the men to fire upon the
    advancing enemy. This they did with coolness and deliberation. I observed,
    however, immediately, that all the brigade of the left were retreating in
    disorder, and had already passed the fence without halting. I retired with the
    few men behind the fence, toward the town. I could see no body of men of
    my regiment on the way, and I went immediately down into the town in the
    hope of getting up with them. Here I met Gen. Lee in the street, and
    reported to him the misfortune which had befallen me, and asked for
    directions. He ordered me to rally all the stragglers I could, without regard
    to what command they belonged, and report with them to Gen. Evans.
    Only about 50 of my regiment could be found; but, with the assistance of
    yourself and Lieut. Pearce, about 150 were rallied and carried up to
    Gen. Evans, on the hill, on the north edge of the town. These were
    formed in line, under my command, along with other stragglers, and all
    placed under the command o Col. Iverson, of the Twentieth North
    Carolina.

    Very soon we advanced into the open field, and, meeting with Gen. D.
    H. Hill, were ordered to attack a regiment of the enemy which was
    maintaining a doubtful contest with a small body of our troops. We moved
    up in line on the right and engaged them with spirit, and forced them, for
    a moment, to give back. Very soon, however, the left of the line of which
    my command formed part gave way, and being left with but the men from
    my regiment, I ordered them to retire, and form
    behind a large rock in the field, about 50 yards distant. This was done, and,
    by the determined conduct of these few men, the regiment of the enemy was
    held in check for twenty-five of thirty minutes. After feeling our strength,
    however, he began to advance and I ordered the men to retreat.
    In this affair I observed, as throughout the day, your admirable
    self-possession and command of your faculties in the midst of danger, and
    I am greatly indebted to you for valuable aid rendered me.

    Retiring again to Gen. Evans' headquarters, and being furnished with a
    horse, I went again into the town and gathered up another body of stragglers,
    who, whit what remained of the Fifth North Carolina, were formed. Gen.
    Evans asked me to take command of them, but a slight wound on the foot
    had by this time become so painful as to orbit it, and he called upon you to
    lead them. How well this was done I would be glad to be able to narrate, but
    being separated finally from any organized body of the regiment this report
    necessarily closes.

    In this last affair we have to lament the loss of our much-esteemed friend,
    Lieut. John M. Felton, Company G, who was killed instantly by a round
    shot from the enemy's battery. He was modest and unassuming as he was
    brave and determined.

    The casualties* of the day have already been reported.

    I halve the honor to be, most respectfully, your obedient servant,

    THOS. M. GARRETT,
    Capt. Company F, Commanding Regiment.

    Lieut. J. M. TAYLOR,
    Acting Assistant Adjutant-Gen.
