Accordingly, General Baird took up the line of march very early in the morning, and crossi Rocky Face Valley, down which they marched in order of battle, General Baird upon the right and General Crufts upon the left. The rebels ga Hill Range in the direction indicated by the sound of Crufts's and Baird's cannon, and after a by no means pleasant ride of a couple of hour, we at length had the unspeakable satisfaction of getting upon General Baird's trail; and riding on a mile or two further, found that, almos enemy.

Major-General Palmer appeared on the field. send wished to see me. I reported to him in front on the skirmish-line. After consultation, the General informed me that we would not advance until General Baird's division should arrive in the valley to my right. About eleven o'clock all was ready and I sounded the forward, and the whole line moved off in splendid order. I rode with Colonel Bennett, Seventy-fifth Illinois, whose battalion was the battalion of direction. Was upon the summit of the ridge, with good opportunities to observe well the movements and grandeur of the scene, to the right and left of the long blue lines moving to battle.
