McPherson, now near Resaca, was not so successful as Sherman had hoped. ently renewed, which covered the approaches to Resaca, made McPherson unusually cautious, so that tht time near McPherson on ground to the west of Resaca. Meanwhile, Johnston, with his main body, wasthe hopes of the morrow. Of the movement at Resaca Joseph E. Johnston says: The two armies (Sherman and his own) were formed in front of Resaca nearly at the same time, so that the federal army coed. On the other hand, our forces approaching Resaca through the gap on the one side and from Dalto effort to seize Johnston's railroad line near Resaca. To this end, during May 14th, several lively I experienced the same feeling again here at Resaca while beholding from my high ground Cox's and [1 more...]

e and, the first to move, his skirmishers soon bounded over the parapets of Hood to find them empty. When my report at Resaca, that Newton occupied the abandoned trenches at dawn of May 16th, reached Sherman, he instantly ordered pursuit. One divr to follow Schofield over the ferries that ran across the branches of the Oostanaula above me, because our new bridge at Resaca had not sufficient capacity for all, and probably, furthermore, to give greater strength to his flanking force. The leon with the rear guard of Johnston, across the Oostanaula, the scream of our locomotive's whistle was heard behind us at Resaca. The telegraph, too, was never much delayed. Major Van Dusen repaired the old broken line, and kept us constantly in communication with our depots and with Washington, and at Adairsville we received word from our commissaries at Resaca that there was at that subdepot, at our call, abundance of coffee, hard bread, and bacon. Here, we notice, from Tunnel Hill to Ada
orks, and at times the fighting has been severe. General Willich and Colonel (now General) Harker in our corps were wounded. We had quite a battle at Dalton, at Resaca, then at Adairsville, and lastly here, near Cassville. A kind Providence has protected me and my staff in the midst of constant dangers. We have been fired updone that I may return to you all, if God is willing. I do feel as though my work was not yet done, but we ought always be ready .... The country this side of Resaca is very beautiful. Large, luxuriant farms, magnificent trees. It is no wonder our enemies are not starving in such a country as this. This is a pleasing changeas probably referred to heads of column and Geary to the complete arrival. At any rate, the whole corps was assembled by the latter hour. Hooker used it as at Resaca, by deploying it into heavy columns of brigades, and then moved almost en masse with a narrow front to the attack. It was a shock; a quick attack made through a

ch as Johnston did on the defensive behind the prepared works, his losses were hardly ever as great as ours; so that, I think, at Kenesaw he had as many men as at Resaca. My judgment is confirmed by the surprisingly long defensive line which he occupied. Hood, at first, had the right, covering all the wagon approaches and trailsnow come to us from the west. He brought enough men to compensate for Sherman's previous losses; so that, like Johnston, Sherman had about the same numbers as at Resaca. The Army of the Tennessee, with Blair on the left, faced Hood. A short distance beyond, eastward, was Garrard's cavalry, trying to keep back the Confederate ca be done-anything that required pluck and energy-we called on Harker. At Rocky Face, where his division wrested one-half of that wonderful wall of strength; at Resaca, where he tenaciously held a line of works close under fire; at Dallas, where he held on for several days with thin lines in connection with his brother officers
