Excerpt from Report on the Right of the Government of the Philippine Islands, Instituted by the President of the United States, to Regulate Commercial Intercourse With the Archipelago, And, as an Incident to Such Regulation, to Impose Import and Export Duties
On our left, abo... ut 2 miles from the Deposito, Company L, Captain Taylor, made a very gallant charge on a stone intrenchment and could not take the position at first. I thought the Twenty-third Infantry was up, but as Company L seemed to be falling back I ordered over three companies, B, G, and H, of this regiment to reenforce the line. They all charged a quarry, our troops losing 1 man killed and 4 wounded. The enemy broke, and as they retreated out of the cover into the Open they were severely handled, 17 being killed. After that they were shelled and ¿anked out of every position and kept on the run. The line of their retreat was the direction of Mariquina. At we arrived at the pumping station and found the machinery intact except the cylinder and valves, which had been hidden under the coal.
Companies D and I of the First Colorado, under Major Grove, did valuable service on the right during the advance.
The Tennessee battalion, under Major Cheatham, formed our right ¿ank and was slightly refused.
