ard toward the Chattahoochee, taking position facing us and covering the West-Point Railroad, about Palmetto Station. He also threw a pontoon-bridge across the Chattahoochee, and sent cavalry detachments to the west, in the direction of Carrolton and Powder Springs. About the same time President Davis visited Macon and his army at Palmetto, and made harangues referring to an active campaign against us. Hood still remained in command of the confederate forces, with Cheatham, S. D. Lee, and Stewart commanding his three corps, and Wheeler in command of his cavalry, which had been largely reinforced. My cavalry consisted of two divisions; one was stationed at Decatur, under command of Brigadier-General Garrard; the other, commanded by Brigadier-General Kilpatrick, was posted near Sandtown, with a pontoon-bridge over the Chattahoochee, from which he could watch any movement of the enemy toward the west. As soon as I became convinced that the enemy intended to assume the offensive,
n, and should be decided by naval officers. The President asked me if there was any naval officer of high authority in Washington who would sustain me, and if so, to bring him to the White House. I knew that Commodore Stringham was at that time filling the position of detailing officer in the Navy Department, and I took him to the President, where, in the presence of Lieutenant-General Scott, he not only confirmed my views, but said that he had that morning held a conversation with Commodore Stewart, who declared that Fort Sumter could easily be reinforced and provisioned with boats at night. As valuable time was being lost by discussions, which form no part of this narrative, I represented that so important an expedition required time for its preparation, and that I ought to be allowed to take the preparatory steps, if there was any possibility of sending it out. On the thirtieth of March, the President sent me to New-York with verbal instructions to prepare for the voyage,
an infantry support. The brigade of General George H. Stewart was accordingly ordered forward. In, Brockenbrough, and Rains in the centre, General Stewart's brigade on the left, and General Elzey'emonstration on our left. The battery of General Stewart was in the early part of the fight, but wanded by me, was commanded manded by General George H. Stewart. It was annexed to the First Marylaline of battle in the woods. Ultimately, General Stewart led the First Maryland and Forty-fourth b, of the Fifty-eighth was wounded; so was General Stewart. Respectfully submitted. W. C.

ire was poured into them, and, without a halt, the woods was cleared, and the crest next the enemy occupied. At this time, I determined to charge across a field in our front, and to a woods beyond, which was held by the enemy; but he again approached in force to within a hundred yards, where he was met by the same crushing fire which had driven him first from the position. I now went to recall the Twenty-fourth, which had passed on,--which had been directed, as I afterward heard, by General Stewart, to occupy a position near the extreme left,--but finding it was so far away, returned. During my absence, the enemy again attempted to force the position, after subjecting us to a fearful storm of iron missiles for thirty minutes. Colonel Ransom, commanding during my absence, repulsed him signally, and put an end to any further attempt by infantry to dislodge us. Immediately after this, fire from two large batteries was opened upon us, and continued with occasional intermissions until
