Death: Jun. 18, 1864

June 17, the enemy having evacuated their works in front during the night, brigade was moved forward and over them. After advancing short distance south of enemy's works our skirmishers met those of the enemy, and drove them rapidly to their works on east of creek, near Darby's plantation. The brigade moved up to the crest of the ridge on west side of creek. While moving into position were met with a heavy artillery fire, but owing to the protection of the crest no injury was sustained. The brigade fortified the crest during the night. Adjt. J.S. Reeve, Eighth Tennessee Volunteers, was mortally wounded by a musket-ball. -Report of Col. J.W. Reilly. Hdqrs. First Brig., Third Div., 23d Army Corps, In the Field, Ga., July 8, 1864.
