I left my encampment at Marietta on the morning of November fourteenth, with five thousand five hundred (5500) men and six (6) pieces of artillery; reached Atlanta same day, and bivouacked for the night.

Circumstances unfortunately detained the Seventh regiment, under the gallant Colonel Hays, in another part of the field.
