d to assume the offensive, namely, September twenty-eighth, I sent Major-General Thomas, second in command, to Nashville, to organize the new troops expected to arrive, and to make preliminary preparations to meet such an event. About the first of October, some of the enemy's cavalry made their appearance on the west of the Chattahoochee, and one of his infantry corps was reported near Powder Springs; and I received authentic intelligence that the rest of his infantry was crossing to the westhfully. His report, forwarded herewith, will furnish interesting details of the multifarious labors and services of himself and his subordinate officers. The supplies for man and beast were sufficient until the railroad was cut about the first of October by Hood's army moving northward. The several army corps, following in pursuit, left behind large detachments of convalescents and unarmed men, and a good part of their trains. Of these detachments and trains, great and small, there were re
attery on the twenty-ninth, arriving at Chattanooga at half-past 3 P. M. on the thirtieth; by direct orders from Major-General Thomas, left Chattanooga by rail October first, at half-past 5 A. M., for Stevenson, Alabama, and by subsequent order to Huntsville, arriving there at eight P. M. The track had been destroyed about twelve me taking of that city, the army remained there for the purpose of repairing the damages caused by the long and arduous campaign of the summer until about the first of October. It was then ascertained that the rebel army of Hood, recovered from the effect of the recent discomfiture, was moving to the west and north, as if to threammunications, and our forces were put in motion to meet it. The following diary of daily events sets forth the movements of this division in consequence: October first and second, division remained in camp, situated about one mile south of the city of Atlanta. On Monday, October third, at ten o'clock P. M., pursuant to order
teers 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 rear to meet certain movements of the enemy. Our corps being left to hold Atlanta, we commenced the construction of an inner line of forts and rifle-pits, our cath October, when, having received leave of absence, he left for Illinois; since his absence I have had command. While lying at the river, frequent details were made for foraging purposes. The First brigade, having moved back from Atlanta on first October, all the regiments furnished men for foraging parties. On the twenty-fourth of October, I was sent out in charge of a party of five hundred and fifty men, and a train of wagons, to be gone three days. On the second day out, the party was att
ds with a despatch and system unparalleled in my experience, and receipts obtained for them. Lieutenant Sears was engaged seven hours each day, (Sunday excepted,) with all the prisoners of the provost-guard, in sweeping the streets, carrying off the filth, and burying all dead and decaying matter within the limits of the fortifications. The Soldiers' Home furnished meals from over ten thousand (10,000) rations. While, after the army moved northward in pursuit of Hood, about the first of October, detachments of the different army corps left behind with baggage and so forth, were reported to the post commander, pursuant to orders from Major-General Slocum, to the number of twelve thousand seven hundred men, (12,700;) the different detachments commanded by persons of the different grades, from that of colonel to that of corporal. All business on Sundays was stopped in the city, all stores and public buildings closed. When the city of Atlanta was about to be evacuated, and t
e other regiments of the brigade, on a line, this regiment being third in line. While in this camp, brigade dress-parades were held whenever practicable; also, brigade, battalion, company, and squad drills, officers' schools, etc. ; meanwhile furnishing details for picket and fatigue, ranging in number from forty (40) to seventy-five (75) men daily. On the twenty-fifth, were reviewed by Major-General Slocum, General Sherman being present. On the twenty-ninth of September, also on the first of October, we took part in division-drills, conducted by Brigadier-General Geary. October tenth, started on a foraging expedition, which proved highly successful; returning on the thirteenth, having marched about forty (40) miles. On the nineteenth, in company with the brigade, we embarked on a train for East-Point; after reaching which place, we marched about two miles on the West-Point Railroad, where we stood guard while the track was torn up by a negro gang, the iron being loaded on the trai
that such was not the case. As you are aware, my line extended on the Potomac from Black Creek to the mouth of the Opequon. When General Lee joined me, upon consultation with Colonel Lee, (who was in command of the brigade the day before the advance of the enemy,) he said that if his pickets were driven in, he would make a stand at Williamston's cross-roads, and, if forced to retire, would fall back to the Stone Bridge, which he would hold to the last extremity. On the morning of the first October, a courier from Colonel Lee informed me that the enemy were advancing on him, and, soon after, another courier notified me that Colonel Lee had fallen back to the cross-roads. Expecting an attack upon my own picket line, I ordered my brigade to be ready to move, and I sent a few men from the provost guard toward the stone bridge to procure information of the movements of the enemy. In a short time they returned, and, to my great surprise informed me that the enemy had crossed the bridg
