of the Battle of Shiloh
I take great pleasure in calling your attention
to the conduct of Col Oliver and a portion of
his regiment the 15th Michigan
When my division was marching on to
the field, Col. Oliver at that time unknown to me
requested the privalege of placing himself under
my command
His regiment was attached to Gen Rousseau’s
Brigade and during the day was under the hot-
-test fire, where he, and his officers, and men
acted with conspicuous gallantry
