Cheatham's fine corps of veterans, all in order and well rested, h, so that by an obstinate resistance, somewhat prolonged, Cheatham's attacks on that rivet point had to fail. Meanwhile the two left divisions of Cheatham breasted the whole front of the Fifteenth Corps, now commanded by Morgan L. Smith, and reae first bona fide break in Logan's front, and it afforded Cheatham a temporary triumph. During that exciting, noisy, tumulthe roar deafening; such firing kept back the remainder of Cheatham's lines. Woods's men advanced steadily down the line; thg guns. Schofield now urged Sherman to put a column on Cheatham's flank from himself and Thomas to roll up that Confederaapture or damage. Hood, at last weary, drew Hardee and Cheatham back to the shelter of the Atlanta forts, leaving havoc b

as crossed the Chattahoochee with two corps to take our road, and has left one corps on this side near Campbelton, we should interpose. W. T. Sherman, Major General Commanding. Official: A. C. McClurg, A. A. G. As soon as Sherman found out what Hood was undertaking, he set his whole force in motion northward, except Slocum, with his Twentieth Corps, who was left back to keep Atlanta for our return. Sherman's first surmise of only two Confederate corps was incorrect, for Stewart's, Cheatham's, and Stephen D. Lee's corps were all included in the big northward raid. After Stewart had captured some garrisons he drew back to Hood, near Lost Mountain. Now we commenced the pursuit in earnest from Atlanta the morning of October 3d. By the 5th we had reached the vicinity of the battlefield, Kenesaw Mountain. As soon as Sherman heard that a division of the enemy had been seen marching northward not far from the railroad line he divined that the subdepot at Allatoona Pass was th

rutal slaying. This same day, February 22d, Washington's birthday, brought us the first intimation that the Confederates had evacuated Charleston. Gillmore's troops had entered the city, and captured a large amount of artillery and other stores. This was good news, brought by the negroes, who always enjoyed telling us such things, but it indicated to me an increased opposition to our advance; for already we were hearing not only of Hardee drawing in his various garrisons, but of Bragg, Cheatham, and Stephen D. Lee. We then knew that the remnants which Thomas and Schofield had not destroyed of Hood's army at Nashville, Tenn., as well as the troops from Augusta, Ga., were hastening to strengthen Hardee's resistance to our advance. We had about the same experience day after day with ever increasing obstacles, till we came near what is called Lynch's Creek, in ordinary times a stream not to exceed 200 feet; but when we approached, owing to the recent freshet, the creek overflowed

Slocum to bury and 68 wounded. We lost 12 officers and 65 men killed and 477 men wounded. It is evident that my movement across the Black River and touching the Averysboro road on that same day, where I was waiting to turn back upon Hardee's left, was what caused him to retreat without further battle. Now, it is plain from all accounts that Johnston in good earnest was gathering in all the troops he could at or near Bentonville. A dispatch mentioned Stephen D. Lee, Stevenson, Stewart, Cheatham, Hampton, and IIardee as near at hand. Johnston's instructions, which he received from Richmond, February 23d, at his residence in Lincolnton, N. C., were: To concentrate all available forces and drive Sherman back. This was done, Johnston alleges, with a full consciousness on my part, however, that we could have no other object in continuing the war than to obtain fair terms of peace; for the Southern cause must have appeared hopeless then to all intelligent and dispassionate Southern
