through the left breast. During the Atlanta campaign he was in Ector's brigade of French's division, and at Kenesaw Mountain was wounded in the neck and jaw. When General Ector was disabled so that he could no longer command his brigade, Colonel Young took his place, and was appointed brigadier-general, August 15, 1864. He was in the subsequent engagements around Atlanta and during the evacuation of that city. During Hood's march into north Georgia, French's division was sent to capture Allatoona. In the battle which resulted, General Young's horse was shot under him and the bones of his left ankle were shot in twain. Being captured in this condition he lay for four months in Federal hospitals at Marietta, Atlanta, Chattanooga and Nashville. In February, 1865, he was carried to Johnson's island, where he was imprisoned until July 25th. General Young was one of the youngest brigadiers of the Confederacy. Since the war he has resided at San Antonio, Tex., devoting himself to the

Allatoona, where more than a million of rations were stored, was evidently s at Rome with a division of infantry, to hasten to the succor of Allatoona, and himself reached Kenesaw early on the morning of the 5th. Bueen Hood and the detachment of five thousand rebels now attacking Allatoona. The remainder of the national army was directed straight upon AAllatoona itself. The signal officer on Kenesaw mountain reported that since daylight he had failed to obtain any answer to his messages to AAllatoona; but while Sherman was with him, he caught a glimpse of the tell-tale flag through an embrasure, and made out the letters C. R. S. Eouses, according to orders; but about two o'clock the smoke about Allatoona grew less and less, and at four ceased altogether; and later the
orth at this time. See page 153. But while the general-in-chief was thus diligently arranging for Sherman's arrival at the Atlantic, Sherman himself had been drawn back by Hood nearly to the Tennessee. After the repulse of the rebels from Allatoona, he reached that place in person on the 9th of October, still in doubt as to the intentions of the enemy. On the 10th, Hood appeared at Rome, and Sherman ordered his whole army to march to Kingston in pursuit; he arrived there himself on the 1d Hood himself demanded the surrender of the post. No prisoners will be taken, he said, if the place is carried by assault. But the commander replied: If you want it, come and take it; an invitation which Hood, admonished by his losses before Allatoona, was not inclined to accept. The demand was a mere piece of bluster, and he continued his march north, doing all the damage possible to the railway. Sherman at first had intended to move into the Chattooga Valley, in the rebel rear, but fea

orps, and Col. John Wier led his brigade. Lowrey's men swept everything from their front on the first day, and Sharp and Brantly made a resolute assault upon the enemy posted on a hill, exhibiting great gallantry and suffering heavy loss. In Hood's operations against Sherman's communications in north Georgia, Stewart's corps, the old army of Mississippi, took the most conspicuous part, and it was French's division which made the sanguinary and famous attack upon the Federal garrison at Allatoona, October 6th. The Confederates kept up an assault upon the Federal redoubts from seven in the morning until two in the afternoon, and after losing 800 out of 2,000 men were compelled to retire by the approach of Sherman, who had signalled Corse, commanding the garrison, Hold the fort, for I am coming. Sears' brigade lost 37 killed and 114 wounded and 200 missing. Among the killed was Col. W. H. Clark, Forty-sixth regiment; Colonel Barry, Thirty-fifth, and Major Parkin, Thirty-sixth, wer

ars, were engaged in all the battles of the Atlanta and Tennessee campaigns, and were surpassed by none in heroic devotion to the cause of the South. In the fall campaign in north Georgia it was French who made the gallant attack upon Corse at Allatoona. He had driven the Federals from their outer works and into a little star fort, and was pressing the attack with vigor when he was informed of the approach of Sherman's army. He was compelled reluctantly to retire when victory was almost in hly he was disabled by illness. In General French's final report of the campaign General Sears was commended for valuable services. It was his fortune, in Hood's north Georgia campaign in Sherman's rear, to be engaged in the desperate fight at Allatoona, in reporting which French acknowledged his indebtedness to Sears' bravery, skill and unflinching firmness. At the battle of Franklin, Tenn., his brigade won new honors, many of the men and officers gaining the main line of the Federal works i
and lost his best opportunity, and at daylight of the 20th reluctantly crossed the Etowah. On the 19th, Federal dispatches were sent to Washington stating that Johnston retires slowly, leaving nothing, and hitting hard if crowded. Sherman, in spite of his heavy losses, reported on the 21st of May that he would move on the following day with full 80,000 fighting men, and had ordered the Seventeenth army corps, 10,500 strong, to join him. Hardee's corps spent Saturday and Sunday near Allatoona, on Pumpkin Vine creek; on the following day marched eight miles to meet a reported movement of the enemy; on the 24th marched ten miles below Dallas, and then immediately returned where General Johnston had concentrated the army. On the 27th, Cleburne fought the battle of New Hope Church. Being attacked at 4 o'clock p. m. by four army corps, the enemy was repulsed after an obstinate fight of an hour and a half, and Cleburne reported the capture of 160 prisoners, exclusive of 72 sent
