Please note: Some of these pages were very faint and difficult to read. Extra research was done to verify the indiviuals as correct. Some of the names I could not read at all and therefore also could not get the name accurate enough to verify.
Those names with a ? indicate that there was no way to find this information as of yet, to correct it. If you know the correct letters or name please let us know.
Also..there are several people known to have died, been prisoners of war, missing or wounded in this battle, but they are not listed here. The names here are what was in Col. Fenton's diary. No additions have been made.
