Head Quarters 26th Regt. Wis. Vol. Infantry.
Near Brooks Station, May 21/63
To His Excellency
The Governor of Wisconsin.
I have the honor to hand you enclosed Report of Causalities in this Regiment after the late battle of Chancellorsville, Va., on the 2d. day of may last. Those reported as missing are supposed to have been mostly taken Prisoners by the Rebels. From private sources I learned that many of our men taken Prisoners have been paroled and are now at the Camp Parole near Annapolis, Md. The larger portions of our wounded are in the Division Hospital near Brooks Station, Va.
I am very respectfully
Your obt. Servant
26th Reg. Wis. Vol. Infy.
(List of 40 wounded soldiers was given.)
