out near the left of our front, and about two hundred yards in rear of the works, where comfortable huts were erected and drill and parade-grounds prepared. Regular hours of service were established, and when not otherwise engaged as herein reported, squad, company, regimental, and brigade drills, dress-parades, and reviews were regularly held by the entire command. 14th. The Sixtieth New-York veteran volunteers was detailed, by order of the General commanding division, to proceed to Chattanooga to escort paymasters to Atlanta, which duty was performed without particular incident, and the regiment reported back on September twenty-second. October 11th.--The brigade, except the Twenty-ninth Pennsylvania veteran volunteers, constituted a part of a foraging force of about two thousand infantry, with artillery and cavalry, under command of Brigadier-General Geary, which proceeded to the vicinity of Flat Rock Shoals, about twenty miles from Atlanta, and returned on the fourteenth O
suffered terribly, many actually dying from starvation, and others being so reduced as to render them utterly unserviceable. Almost an entire new supply of horses had to be obtained. A short time before leaving Atlanta, a still further reduction of the artillery was made. Battery K, Fifth U. S. artillery, Captain Bainbridge; battery I, First Michigan artillery, Captain Smith and Thirteenth New-York independent battery, Captain Bundy, were relieved from duty with the corps and sent to Chattanooga, leaving but four batteries, (2) two twelve pounders and (2) two three-inch Rodman, of four guns each. On the fifteenth day of November, the corps left Atlanta, the batteries being distributed through the column, marching in this manner until reaching the enemy's lines near Savanah. Meeting with but slight resistance on the march, the batteries did not fire a gun; but twice only a section was placed in position, the infantry then driving back the enemy until we reached their lines, ab
rgia; that a portion of my regiment, consisting of three hundred (300) men, under command of Major Bowles, was already with him, and ordering me to report at that point at once, with all the effective men of my command. I was at the time ill prepared to comply with the order, as I had been informed by Major-General Wilson, Chief of Cavalry, that my regiment had been ordered to report to him at Nashville, and to make my arrangements accordingly; part of my men were consequently lying at Chattanooga, partly dismounted and imperfectly clothed. After clothing them, I shipped the dismounted men, by General Kilpatrick's order, to Marietta, brought up the mounted men to Tunnel Hill, and on the twelfth November started from there with three hundred and fifty (350) mounted men for Marietta, leaving sixty (60) dismounted men, under Lieutenant Cochran, for whom no transportation could be procured. Upon reaching Calhoun, I found the railroad destroyed, and communication with the front cu
commenced by eleven A. M. The march was resumed without loss of time; passing Irwin's Cross-Roads the twenty-seventh, we moved toward Sunmmertown, through continuous pine forests, crossing several low marshy branches of the Ohoopee, reaching Summertown the thirtieth. The number of miles marched this month, two hundred and seventy-five. Number of casualties, eleven. On December first, the march was resumed in the direction of Statesboro, along the right bank of the Ogeechee River. The remainder of the march was much impeded by low broad marshes, which it was invariably found necessary to corduroy. From Summertown to the Cannouchee River, which was reached the seventh, the Third division, General John E. Smith, with my own, formed a column, under my command, and was somewhat exposed to annoyance from the enemy endeavoring to reach Savannah from the west, before us. On the third, the Fifty-third Ohio lost by capture a foraging-party of one officer and eleven men. On the f

From the second to the fourteenth of September, the regiment was occupied, in pursuance to orders, with the remainder of the brigade, in constructing quarters and occupying works for defence, south of the city of Atlanta. On the fourteenth, under orders received from the division commander, the regiment proceeded to Chattanooga as an escort to paymasters, awaiting an opportunity to pay the army. Returning on the twenty-third, it took its former position, which was retained without material change, till the eleventh of October, when, with the brigade, it proceeded as a portion of an expedition sent out in the direction of Yellow River, for forage. A large amount of forage was obtained, very fortunately, supplying the command when much needed. Second. The enemy having destroyed a portion of the railroad in r
