M. of the fifth, and could see the smoke of battle and hear the faint sounds of artents on the cars and arrived at one A. M. on the morning of the fifth instant. He sent his train back for more troops, but, owing to an accihe whole command reached Smyrna camp-ground on the afternoon of the fifth, and went into position, facing westward, Seventeenth corps on the e church, and passing through Habersham, reached Jacksonboro on the fifth. Baird's division moved from Louisville in support of the cavalry, at the river by the crossing of General Howard's troops. On the fifth, the corps marched to connect with the Fourth corps, near Kenesaw Mhe third, at Horse Creek; on the fourth, at Little Ogeechee; on the fifth, at Sylvania Cross-Roads; on the sixth, near Cowpens Creek; on the
the roads, excepting at the river and swamp crossings, were good, the country very level, and the weather, during the march, superb. Supplies of all kinds were very abundant. From the first to the eighth of December, our line of march was down the Peninsula between the Ogeechee and Savannah Rivers, following the Louisville and Savannah Road, encamping on the first on Baker's Creek; on the second, at Buckhead Church; on the third, at Horse Creek; on the fourth, at Little Ogeechee; on the fifth, at Sylvania Cross-Roads; on the sixth, near Cowpens Creek; on the seventh, on Jack's Branch, near Springfield; and on the eighth, near Eden Cross-Roads. As we approached the coast, the surface of the country became flat and swampy. Large ponds or pools were met every mile or so, and the creeks spread out into several miry branches. The roads between the creeks and ponds, though apparently of sand, and substantial character, proved to be upon a thin crust, which was soon cut through by
one and a half miles distant. The cavalry were ordered forward on the Florence road; they were soon driven back by a largely superior force, (reported to be two regiments cavalry, Forrest's command.) The First brigade had already been ordered forward, the Sixtieth Illinois deployed as skirmishers, who drove the enemy steadily beyond Florence. Here I obtained the first certain information about Forrest. He had crossed the Tennessee with his command at Florence and at Bride's Ferry, (on the fifth,) ten miles below, leaving these two regiments as rear-guard. Deeming it useless for infantry to pursue cavalry, and my order not warranting me in advancing beyond Shoal Creek, that portion of my command that was at Florence was ordered to return, arriving at Shoal Creek (marching fourteen miles) just after dark. October seventh, in obedience to orders from Major-General Rousseau, moved with whole command to Florence, (seven miles,) remaining there during eighth and ninth. October ten

On the fifth, the First division, which had previously been in advance, dropped to the rear, allowing the other two divisions to go ahead. This consumed most of the day. My br encamped near the east bank of the river. We marched and crossed the Augusta Branch Railroad on the third day of December, leaving Millen to our right. On the fifth, our regiment was sent two miles from camp, with orders to destroy two mills. I destroyed the mills, and returned to camp. From this time until the ninth, nothind about fifteen miles, passing about three miles north of Millen, and marching in the direction of Sylvania. On the fourth, we marched about twelve miles. On the fifth, marched two and a half miles, and went into camp about eleven P. M. On the sixth, marched about eight or ten miles toward Springfield. On the seventh, seven comp
enty-seventh, the company marched one hundred and twenty-three (123) miles, to Waynesboro; had thirty (30) horses killed and abandoned. On the twenty-eighth, the battery was in action at Jones's plantation, near Buckhead Church, and on the twenty-ninth arrived at Louisville, Georgia. December first, second, and third, the battery marched with General Baird's division to Thomas Station seven miles south of Waynesboro. On the fourth, the battery was in action at Waynesboro. On the fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth, the battery marched seventy-three (73) miles, to Ebenezer. On the eleventh, the battery went into camp within five (5) miles of Savannah, on the Macon and Savannah Railroad. On the thirteenth and fourteenth, the battery marched thirty (30) miles, to Midway Church. On the sixteenth, the battery went into camp at King's Bridge, where it remains yet. During this campaign the company have been in action seven times, and marched five hundred and twenty (52

M., on the morning of the fifth instant, immediately disembarked, and started the train of any reenforcements until about nine P. M. of the fifth. In justice to Messrs. Drake and Hughes, gentlemen in the engagement at Allatoona, Georgia, on the fifth instant, marches, incidents, etc., belonging thereto: miles from here, till about half-past 7 A. M. on the fifth. The Fifty-seventh Illinois was immediately run down received from it by me. During the night of the fifth, that part of the Fifty-seventh Illinois, Fifty-secon accident on the railroad on the morning of the fifth instant, the regiment did not arrive at Allatoona until
annah, Ga., December 26, 1864. Captain N. K. Bray, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General: I have the honor to submit the following record of events connected with this regiment, transpiring from the occupation of Atlanta, Georgia, September second, 1864, to the occupation of Savannah, Georgia, December twenty-first, 1864: The regiment entered Atlanta the evening of September second, and was posted, September third, on the left of the McDonough road, removing to the right of the road on the fifth, when the regiment went into camp, doing picket, guard, and fatigue-duty on the fortifications, and all duty required of troops at garrison posts; remaining until October sixteenth, when it was ordered out on a forage expedition, under command of Colonel Robinson, commanding First brigade, First division, to the vicinity of Flat Shoals, Georgia; returning and occupying our former camp on the nineteenth, where it remained on duty until the twenty-sixth of the same month, when it was again ord
and another skirmish occurred in which we lost twenty-two prisoners, and two or three more severely wounded; capturing, however, a battery of three or four navy guns, taking one wounded lieutenant as prisoner. Yet although we learned on the next day that three thousand men could have swept James Island to Fort Johnson, still the column of General Wright, nearly six thousand strong, did not make its appearance, and only began to come slowly into Legareville on the afternoon of Thursday, the fifth, delayed by broken bridges and other impediments, and so worn out by marches in a violent rain for the greater part of the previous thirty-six hours, that it had not finally crossed over the Stono to Grimball's till Monday evening, the ninth of June. On the tenth, immediately after the establishment of Wright's camp at the best landing at Grimball's, two miles above Stevens, at the old battery, the enemy commenced a fire of shot and shell into, around, and over the camp and hospitals, and
ions by destroying the Central Railroad at Beaver Dam. This force did no serious damage; but to prevent the repetition of the attempt, and to ascertain the strength and designs of the enemy, General Stuart was directed to proceed from Hanover Court-House, where he was posted, toward Fredericksburgh. His progress was delayed by high-water until the fourth of August, when he advanced, with Fitz-Hugh Lee's brigade and the Stuart horse artillery, upon Port Royal. Arriving at that place on the fifth, without opposition, he proceeded in the direction of Fredericksburgh, and the next day came into the telegraph road at Massaponax Church, just after two brigades of the enemy had passed that point on the way to the Central Railroad. His vigorous attack caused the expedition to return in haste to Fredericksburgh, and General Stuart retired with the loss of only two men, bringing off eighty-five prisoners and a number of horses, wagons, and arms. No further attempt was made upon the railroa
cceeded in accomplishing before the Federal forces reached the opposite bank of the river. Here his horse was killed by the enemy, and he made a very narrow escape with his life. We reached Harrisonburgh at an early hour on the morning of the fifth, and, passing beyond that town, turned toward the east in the direction of Port Republic. On the sixth, General Ashby took position on the road between Harrisonburgh and Port Republic, and received a spirited charge from a portion of the enemy's were ordered to recross the bridge, before it was burnt, relieving the Sixth, who were bringing up the rear. After burning the bridge, a heavy picket was thrown out, and we retired to New-Market, and had heavy picket skirmishing all day. On the fifth, the enemy got their pontoon-bridges over, and about one regiment of their cavalry crossed. The army moved up the Valley on the Port Republic Road. About five o'clock P. M., while the Second and Seventh were grazing their horses in a field on t
