elve miles from Savannah, on the afternoon of December ninth, we encountered two small redoubts on the Augusta dirt-road, occupied both by the enemy's artillery and infantry. One section of my battery under Lieutenant Scott was immediately thrown forward and put in position, with a range of about one thousand two hundred yards. The troops of the First division, Twentieth corps, were immediately deployed, and scattered the enemy without the use of artillery. On the morning of the eleventh day of December, Major J. A. Reynolds again directed me to move my battery on the Savannah River, with the Twenty-second Wisconsin infantry as support, it being reported that the enemy's gunboats had made their appearance. On the morning of the twelfth day of December, about eight o'clock, the enemy's gunboats made their appearance, which afterward proved to be the Macon, armed with four sixty-four-pounder rifle-guns and two thirty-two pounder howitzers, also the gunboat Samson, armed with two thi

leading directly to Savannah. Artillery-firing heard more or less all day. After having marched about nine (9) miles, at forty-five minutes past three P. M., brigade was formed in two lines of battle, and we encamped for the night. Sunday, December eleventh, were in line at half-past 7 A. M., and after marching about a mile on the main road, filed left on a cross-road, and again filing left from the cross-road, the regiment was deployed as skirmishers. The extreme right and left of the lihe regiment rejoined the brigade the same day. On the morning of the eleventh, the regiment was assigned to the right of the brigade, and before the day closed, was in line confronting the enemy in front of Savannah. From the first to the eleventh of December, the duty of the regiment has been the usual destruction of public property and the laborious work of crossing Georgia swamps with heavy trains. The position taken by the regiment on the eleventh was retained till the morning of the twent
troops to the destructive fire of the numerous batteries of the enemy. At the same time, the narrowness of the Rappahannock, its winding course and deep bed, prevented opportunities for laying down bridges at points secure from the fire of our artillery. Our position was, therefore, selected with a view to resist the enemy's advance after crossing, and the river was guarded only by a force sufficient to impede his movements until the army could be concentrated. Before dawn, on the eleventh December, our signal guns announced that the enemy was in motion. About two A. M., he commenced preparations to throw two bridges over the Rappahannock, opposite Fredericksburgh, and one about a mile and a quarter below, near the mouth of Deep Run. Two regiments of Barksdale's brigade, McLaws's division, the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Mississippi, guarded these points, the former, assisted by the Eighth Florida, of Anderson's division, being at the upper. The rest of the brigade, with the Thi
