ops did arrive, all were brought up on the same line. Whilst I was making my advance, and throughout the day and until dark, no movement was made by the troops of the Twenty-third Corps on my left, although the line of rebel riflepits captured by my men extended along Brigadier-General Hascall's front, and could have been carried easily by a charge simultaneously with mine. They were the same pits which were taken two days later by the troops of our First Division, Fourteenth Army Corps. August 6, about daybreak in the morning the troops of the Twenty-third Army Corps were withdrawn from my left to be transferred to the extreme right, and were replaced by the First Division of our corps, commanded by Brigadier-General King. The operations of the two corps for that day again were detailed and promulgated in a lengthy order from Major-General Schofield, issued the night previous, but as the part to be performed by my division was dependent upon the movements of Brigadier-Generals Cox

August 8, 9, and 10, remained in camp; skirmish firing almost constantly, with occasional shelling. August 11, our lines being extended to the right, my regiment was placed in reserve in the second line of works. August 27, nothing worthy of notice has occurred wit

Sir: In obedience to verbal orders from brigade headquarters of yesterday, I have the honor to report the operations of my command since my report of the 6th of August last. On the 8th of August last I was ordered to the left of the position I then occupied into some field-works which had been previously constructed.

On that day my regiment moved in common with the corps to the right, taking part in t

my east of the road moving south on a by-road between the Jonesborough road and the railroad. Here we secured 12 prisoners. We here awaited the brigade, and with them went into camp at this point.

With the brigade we took part in the action of the 1st of September at Jonesborough. After the evacuation of this point by the enemy, with the brigade we guarded the approaches to the town from the east, and on the 6th of September, the campaign being at an end, we withdrew, covering the withdrawal of our corps to this point.

udden assault upon the enemy's works with a heavy skirmish line, supported by a regiment from each of the brigades, resulted in taking the enemy's works and capturing about 140 prisoners by the division, 62 of whom were captured by my brigade. Our lines were immediately formed along the captured works, and strong breast-works built, but before they were completed the enemy opened a heavy artillery fire upon the brigade, but the advanced condition of our works afforded material protection. August 6, no change of position, but as the fire of the enemy's artillery was severe the work of strengthening the intrenchments was continued. The occupation of this position must be regarded as important, as it strengthened the line and resulted in its advancement for some distance on our right. During the whole of this laborious and eventful campaign the officers and enlisted men of this brigade have at all times manifested that patience and cheerful attention to duty for which they have her
