Soldiers-You have added another victory to the long list of triumphs won by the Confederate armies. By your conduct you have given another evidence of the daring courage and heroic endurance which actuate you in this great struggle for the independence of your country.

The battle of Glorietta- where for six long hours you steadily drove before you a foe of twice your numbers-over
