nt 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, namely, September twenty-eighth, I sent Major-General Thomas, second in command, to Nashville, to organize the new troops expected to arrive, and to make preliminary preparations to meet such an event. About the first of October, some of the enemy's cavalry made their appearance on the west of
cupation of Atlanta. October 4.--The brigade moved over to the north side of the city, and took position in the rebel earthworks from the Marietta road to the Sandtown road. October 11.--Accompanied a forage expedition under command of Brigadier-General Geary, in conjunction with a brigade from Second division; marched to Flntic and Western Railroad, and encamped near the large post on the Marietta road. October 9.--Moved about two miles further to the left, and encamped near the Sandtown road. October 11.--Marched off on Decatur road, in a south-easterly direction; afterward struck off to right, on road to Flat Rock, halting at eight P. M., nehe command encamped along the line of the enemy's works south-west of the city of Atlanta, and between the Sandtown and McDonough roads, the right resting on the Sandtown road and the left at the large fort about a half-mile from the McDonough road, and covered this front during the entire occupation of the city by our forces.
