Second Cavalry

On our second page, in ‘Diff’s’ excellent letter, will be found the list of the killed and missing in the Second Cavalry, in the lat action of the 9th, the anniversary of the battle of Resaca de la Palma.  Of the killed, Sergt. F. L. Ayer, whose head was nearly shot away, was from Muscatine; Lt. B. Owens from Iowa City; and J. D. Burgh, of Co. B, from Rock Island.  Of the wounded, Corp. Aldrich and Private Dunderdale, of Co. B. are from this city, while Jas. B. Armstrong of Co. C, belonged to Princeton.  The other names in the Cos. C. and E. probably belong to this county, but their names do not appear in the Adjutant Generals report, and we are unable to locate them with certainty.
