ing open of trunks, taking silver plate, etc. I have taken measures to prevent it, and I believe they will be effectual. The inhabitants are generally terrified, and believe us a thousand times worse than we are. Having soldiers in the command who have been bitten by blood-hounds, permission has been given to kill them. Permit me to commend to you Generals Blair and Osterhaus, and the officers and men under them; also General Kilpatrick and his command, for their faithfulness, energy, and untiring exertions to make our march a complete success. While the pleasant weather lasted, the marches were easily made; but as soon as the rains came on, the roads became very heavy, and the poorer mules broke down. But we have found a number in the country that have more than replaced our losses. The members of my staff have given me material aid, and I hope to be able to reward them substantially, at some time, for faithful services. Very respectfully, O. O. Howard, Major-General.
November 26. Generals Corse and Woods, Fifteenth army corps, reached this point, between nine and ten miles from the ferry, last night. Seventeenth corps massed near the fork of the road that leads to Station fourteen. The rear of the Fifteenth corps is now crossing. General Blair has sent a division that is destroying the railroad from Oconee bridge to a point near Irwin's Cross-Roads. General Osterhaus has sent a force to destroy the rest to Station thirteen. T directed the wagon bridges across Commissioners' Creek and the three bridges across Sandy River to be destroyed; the enemy helped me them-selves by destroying the one nearest the Oconee. The country this side of the river is quite open and sandy, but there is plenty of forage thus far. Wheeler, with his main force, passed here the day before yesterday. My headquarters will remain here to-day. Respectfully, O. O. Howard, Major-General.
tain E. H. Kirlin, Chief of Scouts, has carefully reconnoitred the country, through Captain William Duncan and the other scouts, and kept me well advised of the movements of the enemy. Lieutenant J. A. Gladen has cherfully aided me, writing at my dictation, bearing despatches, and keeping important records. My recommendations for the promotion of general and staff officers have already been for-warded, and will be found separate, in duplicate, accompanying this report. The General-in-Chief has been enabled, under a providential care not to be mistaken, to conduct our noble army, thus far, to results that one year ago seemed scarcely possible of attainment. He has secured our complete confidence, and therefore it may not be improper for me to express the faith that it is our mission, under his direction, to give the finishing blow to this hated rebellion. Please find accompanying this, a statistical record for the campaigns. Respectfully, O. O. Howard, Major-General.
rs, whose term of service had expired, were ordered to Ohio to be mustered out of service. Myself and eleven other officers were retained, on the order of Major-General Howard, commanding army and department of the Tennessee, though entitled to be ordered to Ohio for muster out of service on the fourteenth of November, 1864. D infantry held their line firmly, and when ordered, retired in perfect order. On December eleventh, I was ordered by Colonel Atkins to cover the rear of Major-General Howard's army. I took up position near Silk Hope, and received orders from General Kilpatrick, to accompany him on an expedition to open communication with the fMcAllister, and on the thirteenth, at ten o'clock, struck the coast on St. Catherine's Sound.

Captain: I have the honor to make the following report of operations of this division since the twenty-fifth day of September, 1864, at which time two brigades of the division were lying at East-Point, Georgia, with the troops of our corps and department. The Third brigade, Colonel Richard Rowett commanding, garrisoned Rome, Georgia, on the twenty-sixth of September, ultimo. In pursuance to orders from Major-General Howard, I moved that portion of the division at East-Point to Rome via Atlanta, where we obtained transportation, and arrived in Rome on the twenty-seventh of September, at two A. M. The Special Order No. 217, headquarters department and army of the Tennessee, directed that, on reaching Rome, I should unite the division, and be prepared to act against any force that might attempt to threaten Bridgeport from the direction of Gadsden.

lt thanks. They fought gallantly and desperately, as our holy cause urged them to do, and though temporarily repulsed, it was only from overwhelming numbers. Although exposed to such a withering fire, the killed are few in number, a kind Providence having guarded many from the great dangers to which they were exposed. Colonels Allen and Ronald were so far separated from me, I must refer to their respective reports for the operations of their regiments. To my staff, Captain O'Brien, Lieutenants Howard and Garnett, I tender my sincere thanks for their assistance in transmitting my orders to different points, (though under heavy fire frequently, after the fight became general, ever ready and prompt.) The casualties were: two officers and eleven rank and file killed, six officers and one hundred and forty-eight rank and file wounded, and thirty-two rank and file missing, making a total of one hundred and ninety-nine. The strength of the brigade was one thousand three hundred and thirt

Walker, Howard, and Majors Fite, Livingstone, Hickerson, and Grice, wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel Coleman, of the artillery, during the absence of Lieutenant-Colonel R. L. Walkere commanders, in fine order, though their position did not place them under such heavy fire. My thanks are eminently due to my staff, Captain O'Brien and Lieutenants Howard and Garnett, for the promptness with which they transmitted my orders, and the assistance rendered me during the evening, exposed to a heavy fire frequentlyock P. M. During this time the officers and men behaved with true courage. Our loss was heavy. Colonel Neff and Major Holliday, Thirty-third regiment, and Lieutenants Howard and Garnett, of my staff, particularly attracted my admiration by their coolness and untiring efforts to keep the men in their position. Their escape from
id, and Lieutenant Lemmon, Ordnance Officer, rendered brave and efficient assistance, and charged with the troops upon the enemy. The regiments of the brigade were commanded as follows: First Tennessee, Colonel Turney; Seventh Tennessee, Lieutenant Howard, Adjutant; Fourteenth Tennessee, Lieutenant-Colonel Lockhart, and Nineteenth Georgia by Major Neal. Shepherdstown, 22D September. I resumed command of my brigade the evening of the nineteenth of September. On the morning of the twenk, when we returned to camp, and took up our line of march the same night toward Martinsburg. The regiments were commanded as follows: First Tennessee, Colonel Turney; Fourteenth Tennessee, Lieutenant-Colonel Lockhart; Seventh Tennessee, Lieutenant Howard, Adjutant; Nineteenth Georgia, Captain F.
