Such was the General disposition of the two armies on the morning of the 2d of July, 1863. each having a large number of cannon in position. both commanders were averse to ta wounded Unionists, who had lain, uncared for, twenty-four hours. Battles at Gettysburg, July 1, 2, and 3. thus, at near sunset, ended in victory for the Nationals, the decisive battle of Getty on their way to join Lee, had a severe fight with them at Hunterstown, on the evening of the 2d of July.

Stoneman was directed to push on, at the same time, with his cavalry, to the river below Turner's, and thus seriously threaten Johnston's rear. The movement was begun at near the evening of the 2d of July, and the intended effect was instantaneous. Johnston abandoned Kenesaw and all his works that night, and when, at dawn, July 8, 1864. Sherman's skirmishers stood on the top of that mountain, they saw the Confederate hosts flying through and beyond Marietta, in hot haste, toward the Chattahoochee, in the direction of Atlanta. Thomas's corps pressed closely upon the heels of the fugitives; and between eight and nine o'clock in the morning, Sherman rode into Marietta just as the cavalry of
