Two divisions of the Fourteenth corps left Louisville December first, crosbridge erected by Colonel Gleason, commanding brigade Third division, near the town, and on the following morning, the twenty-ninth, the whole corps marched for that place during the evening and the following morning, and went into camp on the north not until noon the next day that the entire column succeeded in getting into its camps. Early on the morning of the twenty-ninth, I received from a staff-officer a report from General Kilpatrick, commanding the cavalry, that he had succeeded in cu
confining himself altogether to the main roads, failed to accomplish any useful result. On the twenty-eighth, we set out for Rome, and arrived there on the twenty-ninth. Here the Thirteenth Michigan volunteers joined the division.

Here the troops received payment to include the thirty-first day of August, 1864. On the morning of the second November, 1864, the brigade marched from Romeain, camp, and garrison equipage.

hile passing through Atlanta, indicated in addition, that the division was placed at Rome in observation, ready at all times to strike in any direction the enemy might be discovered taking. The commanding officer at Rome was relieved on the twenty-ninth, and I assumed command at once, bending all energies to organizing, drilling, and equipping the command for rapid work. The First Alabama cavalry, Colonel George E. Spencer commanding, was ordered to report to me, and the Ninth Illinois mountigade for offensive operations and reconnoissances. The lines were sealed against citizens, the earthworks overhauled and new ones commenced, and such disposition made of the troops as would insure safety and comfort to the command.

November fifth, pursuant to orders, we struck tents, and at three P. M., formed line and started with the brigade, and marched a little over a mile out of the twenty-sixth of the same month, when it was again ordered out on a similar expedition, under General John W. Geary, commanding Second division, Twentieth corps, to the vicinity of Yellow River, Georgia; returning to our previous camp on the twenty-ninth, resuming our regular routine of picket, fatigue-duty, etc. It remained until November fifth, when it was ordered to strike tents and prepare for marching.

It being a part of General Benham's plan to divert the attention of the enemy, and obstruct the railroad between Savannah and Charleston, he had previously arranged with General Stevens for this. Stevens stated that it could be done at any time when ordered. This was ordered on the twenty-ninth, and although General Stevens sent out about eight hundred infantry, a squadron of cavalry, and two pieces of artillery, to cut the railroad about fifteen miles above Beaufort, from the Salkehatchie to the Coosahatchie Rivers, the whole movement proved a miserable failure, without cooperation of the different arms; and after being kept at bay for two or three hours, as the rebel accounts state, (and we have no knowledge to the contrary,) by ninety cavalry only, the expedition returned to

On the twenty-ninth, we marched to Charlestown, supported the batteries which were engaged in shelling the enemy from Bolivar Heights; that evening I was driven from the heights. My regiment was performing heavy picket-duty on all the roads, (on the Key's Ferry road and the Harper's Ferry road,) and one squadron was kept bringing Colonel Allen's regiment, Second Virginia infantry, across the river behind them, (they had been occupying the Loudoun heights.)
