      Antietam after battle report: 

      Report for Capt. S. A. Durham, Twenty-third South Carolina
      Infantry, of the battles of Boonsborough and Sharpsburg.

      OCTOBER 16, 1862.
      Gen. : By order of Col. P. F. Stevens, commanding brigade at
      Boonsborough, M., on September 14, the Twenty-third Regiment, of which
      I was in command, took position on the left of the brigade. We were carried
      into action left in front, which threw our right upon the
      left of a small road leading from the main turnpike, the left extending along
      the summit of the mountain. We were ordered to advance down the
      mountain, and did so for some distance. We then formed line of battle. At
      this point we were me t by our pickets, who were retiring, the enemy
      advancing in force. I ordered the regiment to lie down. The enemy still
      advancing, we opened fire upon them. Our position was held until the
      enemy, in heavy force, both upon our extreme left and in front, were rapidly
      advancing and quite near. As the regiment was left entirely unsupported at
      that time, I ordered them to fall back, and we then formed upon the
      Twenty-second South Carolina. The enemy were still advancing and were
      attempting to flank us upon the left, and would probably have succeeded but
      for the timely support of some of our forces, who appeared upon the left.
      We then held our position until we were again left unsupported, and, the
      enemy still advancing in heavy force, I then ordered the regiment to retire
      a short distance, where I was met by Gen. Rodes, who ordered me to
      form the regiment and hold my position. I did so, when Col. Stevens,
      coming up, ordered me to form on the left of the Sixth Alabama Regiment,
      Col. Gordon commanding, and to follow that regiment. I fell back with
      Col. Gordon to the foot of the mountain, and then formed line of battle
      and remained in that position until after dark, when we were ordered to
      retire.

      The officers and men behaved with great gallantry, and it gives me pleasure
      to state that they were perfectly cool under fire and did their duty nobly.

      Subjoined I respectfully submit a statement of the killed, wounded, and
      missing.*

      Yours, respectfully,

      S. A. DURHAM,
      Capt. Company H, Commanding Regiment.

      Brig. Gen. N. G. EVANS,
      Commanding Brigade, South Carolina Volunteers.

      -----

      OCTOBER 16, 1862.
      GEN.: At Sharpsburg, on September 15 and 16, our regiment was
      under fire, which on the 16th was quite heavy. We were not, however, called
      into action until Wednesday, the 17th, when the regiment was deployed as
      skirmishers and advanced to within 100 yards of the enemy's pickets, here
      we held our position until all of the ammunition had been exhausted, when
      we were ordered to retire by Col. Stevens, who was in command of the
      brigade.

      Having been wounded in the fight of Sunday, the 14th, I was not able to
      command the regiment the whole of Wednesday, and left it in charge of
      Lieut. E. R. White.

      So far as I can, learn, the officers and men reflected great credit upon their
      native State.

      Subjoined will be found a list of the casualties.

      Your, respectfully,

      S. A. DURHAM,
      Capt. Company H, Commanding Regiment.

      Brig. Gen. N. G. EVANS,
      Commanding Brigade, South Carolina Volunteers.
