Doc. 36.-the battle of Chickamauga. General T. J. Wood's report. headquarters First division Twenty-First army corps, Chattanooga, Tenn., September 29, 1863. Sir: At early dawn of the morning of Sunday, the sixteenth August, I received an order to move with my division from Hillsboroa, Middle Tennessee, by the most practicable and expeditious route across the Cumberland Mountain to Sherman in the Sequatchy Valley. Wednesday evening, the nineteenth, was the time fixed for the division to arrive at the destination assigned to it. The Second brigade (Wagner's) had for a month previously occupied Pelham, near the foot of the mountains, and General Wagner had been ordered to repair the road up the mountains known as the Park road. As the order of movement left to my discretion the route by which my division should cross the mountains, I determined to make the ascent by the Park road, thence to Tracy City, thence by Johnson's to Purdon's, where I would fall into the ro
ed in destroying and capturing a small number of the enemy, and pushing back his extreme left out of that part or point of the woods adjacent to the Sudley road. Meantime the right wing of the First Michigan re-formed and advanced in good order. I met it, and we pushed on towards the next point of woods. From this point I found the enemy's left discovered us by our fire, and we became engaged with their rear rank, their front being then occupied by the advancing troops of Franklin's or Sherman's brigade. The officers and men of the First Michigan stood up bravely at this critical moment, holding on anxiously for reenforcements. But from all I can learn, the Thirty-eighth, which was ordered up to me, were directed to the left of the Henry house, (instead of to the right and along the Sudley road,) came in contact with the enemy's centre, and never reached me. It was now nearly four o'clock. General Beauregard had been gathering new reenforcements. General Kirby Smith had joined
ctions. The original plan of operations was briefly this: the force of Major-General Sherman was to cross the Tennessee River at the mouth of the North Chickamauga the creek and the Tennessee River, form a junction with the right flank of General Sherman's force, swing to the right, and sweep along the lower slope and the base of rain Friday afternoon and night, with other causes of delay, prevented General Sherman's command from reaching in time the point at which he was to pass the rivesecond, the orders of the preceding Friday were renewed. The failure of General Sherman's command to be Sunday night at the rendezvous assigned it caused a furthe every eye and absorbed, every feeling was that involved in the attempt of General Sherman's command to effect a lodgment on Mission Ridge, near the tunnel. Severer had been expected was evidently being met with. To lessen the opposition General Sherman was encountering, it was determined that a movement should be made against

of October. From all the information I could obtain, the following was the situation of the Federal army at that time: Sherman at Memphis, with about six thousand men; Hurlbert, afterwards Ord, at Bolivar, with about eight thousand; Grant (headquahe enemy's advanced line of intrenchments. The sharpshooters of Moore's and Phifer's brigades, under Colonels Rogers, Sherman, and Bridges, soon became briskly engaged with those of the enemy, and forced them back into their intrenchments. At terawn, and the fire of the division was maintained by the sharpshooters only, who, boldly and incessantly, under Rodgers, Sherman, and Bridges, harassed the enemy. I had been ordered to await the attack of Hebert's division on my left before advanciphrey Marshall is to enter Eastern Kentucky from Western Virginia. We shall thus have Buell pretty well disposed of. Sherman and Rosecrans we leave to you and Price, satisfied you can dispose of them, and we confidently hope to meet you upon the
nant-General Hardee, with the infantry of his corps, except Stevenson's division, to aid Lieutenant-General Polk against Sherman in Mississippi. This order was obeyed as promptly as our means of transportation permitted. The force detached was pmy of Tennessee, after the arrival of Mercer's brigade, amounted to 40,900; the effective cavalry to about 4,000. Major-General Sherman's army was composed of that of Missionary Ridge (then 80,000) increased by several recruits: 5,000 men under Hoveenth June. I did so in the belief that this cavalry would serve the Confederacy better by insuring the defeat of Major-General Sherman's army, than by repelling a raid in Mississippi. Besides the causes of my removal alleged in the telegram annotion to reinforcements for me. He talked much more of affairs in Virginia than Georgia, asserting, what I believed, that Sherman's army outnumbered Grant's, and impressed me with the belief that his visits to me were unofficial.
