ty, D. C.: General: I have the honor to offer my report of the operations of the armies under my command, since the occupation of Atlanta in the early part of September last, up to the present date. As heretofore reported, in the month of September the army of the Cumberland, Major-General Thomas commanding, held the city of September the army of the Cumberland, Major-General Thomas commanding, held the city of Atlanta; the army of the Tennessee, Major-General Howard commanding, was grouped about East-Point; and the army of the Ohio, Major-General Schofield commanding, held Decatur. Many changes occurred in the composition of these armies, in consequence of the expiration of the time of service of many of the regiments. The opportunity errillas and raiding parties of the enemy's cavalry broke our road, which rendered the prospect of continuous supplies precarious at best. During the month of September, I effected a consolidation of the army of the field into two corps, the Fifteenth and Seventeenth. The portion on the Mississippi constituted the Sixteenth cor
Major I. R. Edie, Fifteenth United States infantry, commanding; the Third brigade, Colonel M. F. Moore, Sixty-ninth Ohio volunteer infantry, commanding; and battery C, First Illinois artillery, Captain Prescott commanding. During the month of September, the following-named regiments were detached from the division or mustered out of service: The First Wisconsin, Tenth Wisconsin, and Fifteenth Kentucky. The entire Second brigade was detached about the last of September and ordered to Lookout September and ordered to Lookout Mountain. On the third of October, I commenced the campaign against the rebel army under Hood, who had gone to our rear and was operating on our communications. The march was continued daily, via Marietta, Kenesaw Mountain, Allatoona, Kingston, Rome, Resaca, Snake Creek, Georgia; Ship's Gap, Summerville, and Chattoogaville to Galesville, Alabama, where we remained from October twenty-first to October twenty-eighth, during which the troops and animals were subsisted almost exclusively by forag
s were assigned to special duty in Atlanta — the former as provost-guard, and the latter reporting to Colonel Beck with, Chief Commissary. During the month of September, nothing occurred to disturb the routine of camp life. About the first of October, a general movement of all the corps, excepting the Twentieth, was made to the 1864, to December twenty-first, 1864. The regiment entered the city of Atlanta, Ga., on the fourth day of September, 1864, and went into camp. The months of September and October were occupied in building defences around the city and doing garrison duty. On the ninth of November, the regiment was ordered into the works to asswere a complete success, and proved of great importance in the way of subsistence, considering the interruptions in our lines of communication. On the------of September, the division was reviewed by Major-General Slocum, and, considering the long and tedious campaign just closed, and the difficulties of securing new clothing, th

General, Second Corps: Captain: In accordance with instructions from the headquarters of the corps, I submit the following report of the operations of this division since the movement from the neighborhood of Gordonsville, northward, in the month of August last, until it reached Bunker Hill, in September: This report, however, is necessarily defective in regard to all the other brigades of the division except my own, as there were other division commanders until after the commencement of the battle of Sharpsburg, on the seventeenth of September, Major-General Ewell having commanded until the night of the twenty-eighth of August, when he was wounded in the action near Groveton, and Brigadier-General Lawton having command from that time until he was wounded at the battle of Sharpsburg.

ease of the forces for extended operations in Texas if it was found expedient. The troops on the Teche, under command of Major-General Franklin, would have been transferred to the coast in such force as to make certain the occupation of Houston or Galveston. From this point I intended to withdraw my troops to the Island of Galveston, which could have been held with perfect security by less than a thousand men, which would have left me free to resume my operations, suggested in August and September, against Mobile. The Rio Grande and the Island of Galveston could have been held with two or three thousand men. This would have cut off the contraband trade of the enemy at Matamoras, and on the Texan coast. The forces occupying the Island of Galveston could have been strengthened by sea, at any moment, from Berwick's Bay, connecting with New Orleans by railway, or by the river, compelling the enemy to maintain an army near Houston, and preventing his concentrating his forces for the
