After reconnoitering the enemy's position, re-embarked and returned to Helena. On the 13th of April, moved to Milliken's Bend, and on the 25th, commenced the Vicksburg Campaign. Marched via Bruinsburg, Port Gibson, Raymond and Clinton, and arrived at Jackson, May 14. The Ninety-third was first under fire here. Participated in the advance, losing 3 killed and 4 wounded.
    Remained at Jackson until the 15th, and then moved toward Vicksburg. On the 16th was engaged in the battle of Champion Hills.
    The Ninety-third was in the Third Brigade, Seventh Division, Seventeenth Army Corps. At 2 o'clock P.M., Brigadier General Hovey's Division being severly pressed, the Brigade was ordered forward and placed on the extreme left. After 20 minutes fighting it was flanked on the left, and, retiring steadily, changed from to the left. Being again flanked, it again retired, and in this position held its ground against furious attack, after which the enemy retreated to Black River Bridge. The loss of the Regiment was 1 officer and 37 men killed, 6 officers and 107 wounded, and 1 officer and 10 men missing.
