man seized the crossing of Turkey Creek, a few miles to the right, and General McPherson, after a sharp skirmish, seized Raymond, still further to the right. The flight of the enemy from Raymond left the way open to Jackson, the capital of Missiselfth, I was ordered by Major-General Grant to move on the following morning on the north side of Fourteen-Mile Creek to Raymond. At this time my corps rested within four miles of Edwards's Station, with an outpost only three and a picket only two e division rested at Old Auburn; while the three remaining divisions rested on the Raymond road between Turkey Creek and Raymond. The morning of the fourteenth found General Osterhaus's division in Raymond, which, in pursuance of Major-General GrSmith.

McPherson was to move by way of Utica to Raymond, and from thence into Jackson, destroying the railroad, telegraph, public stores, etc., and push west to rejoin the main force. Orders were given to Mc-Pherson aout fourteen miles, and engaged the enemy about twelve o'clock M., near Jackson. McClernand occupied Clinton with one division, Mississippi Springs with another, Raymond with a third, and had Blair's division of Sherman's corps, with a wagon train, still in the rear near New-Auburn, while McArthur, with one brigade of his divisiont.

exact position of the enemy had been ascertained by drawing their fire, General Kilpatrick rode up to the Second New-York, (Harris Light,) and said then was the time for them to wipe out the reflection cast upon them for their alleged misconduct in the fight of last week, at Brandy Station. He ordered them to charge into the valley and secure the haystacks; the ditch or ravine at the rear of the position had not then been discovered. Companies H and M, accompanied by Lieutenants Whitaker, Raymond, Martinson, Homan, and Stuart, moved off down the Middleburgh road, the fence to the right was quickly thrown down, and, with a dash, this forlorn hope rushed up to the hay-stacks. For the first time their fire was opened from the ditch a little to the rear of the hay-stacks. This was filled with rebel cavalry — many of them armed with rifles. Captain Grintar, with Lieutenants Mattison and Shafer, and company K, dashed up immediately to the support of these companies, F, I, D, and G, wen

ck. Under this conviction I telegraphed to General Pemberton, on May first, from Tullahoma: If Grant's army lands on this side of the river, the safety of Mississippi depends on beating him. For that object you should unite your whole force. And again, on May second: If Grant crosses, unite the whole force to beat him; success will give back what was abandoned to win it. These instructions were neglected, and time was given to Grant to gain a foothold in the State. At Ports Gibson and Raymond detachments of our troops were defeated and driven back by overwhelming numbers of the enemy. On the thirteenth, when I learned that there were four divisions of the enemy at Clinton, distant twenty miles from the main body of General Pemberton's forces, I gave him orders to attack them, and notified him that we could cooperate. This order General Pemberton disobeyed, and so reported to me in his letter of the seventeenth. It directed him to move twenty miles to the east, to cooperate
May, 1763. (According to the Perley Putnam Mss., this John had removed to St. John. Billings, b. 11 May, 1749. Benjamin, b. 26 Aug., bapt. in Salem Village, 15 Sept., 1751, d. Savannah, Ga., 1801. Henry Putnam's father, Eleazer Putnam, lived in Danvers. He settled on a farm north of the Gen. Israel Putnam house and near the Topsfield boundary on the present Preston place. He was a farmer and probably well off. Here Henry was born. In 1690 Eleazer Putnam had been one of Capt. William Raymond's company, enlisted for the Canada Expedition.

Afterward this grant, being found to be in New Hampshire, was located on the Saco river. During the witchcraft delusion, Eleazer Putnam drew his rapier and punched at an imaginary devil or two which seemed to be torturing one of the afflicted girls. According to the ancient depositions
