I got a company front up and poured in several volleys and then charged and drove the enemy a third of a mile and behind a strong stone work, which was musket-proof. My left flank was greatly exposed and I had stone works thrown up to make my position as safe as possible. I then received orders from General Harker to proceed no farther until directed by him. The Fifteenth Wisconsin, Major Wilson, of General Willich's brigade, came up to my rear at 10.30 a. m., and I detained him to protect my rear left flank until he could be relieved by troops from our own brigade. At 11.30 a. m. I relieved him, the Sixty-fifth Ohio having reported to me. A signal station was soon established, which communicated with headquarters at Tunnel Hill. From this position we had a plain view of the enemy's works and batteries, and could see Dalton. The importance of it as a point of observation was a

The Fifteenth Wisconsin being deployed as skirmishers, advanced to the foot of Rocky Face Ridge, where it remained sted behind heavy forts and breast-works around Atlanta, and our regiment being put into position within musket-range of the city, fortified and kept up a heavy fire from the skirmish line. Up to this time the regiment was under command of Major Wilson, but he is now absent sick, and consequently unable to make his report, and I am indebted for the foregoing to Adjt. L. G. Nelson, of this regiment. I returned and took command on the 24th day of July, and from that time no movement was made

Captain Irwin and Lieutenant Waldo, model soldiers, whose bravery had been conspicuous on every battle-field the regiment had been engaged in, were mortally wounded; Lieutenant Stedman, a stranger to fear, killed; Lieutenant McGinnis, a very gallant officer, severely wounded, and Captain Wilson, slightly wounded.

His care and attention for the wounded, as well as that of Chaplain Michael Decker, is worthy of all praise. My heartfelt thanks are due to the officers and men of this regiment for their bravery, fidelity, and prompt discharge of duty, and especially to Capt. D. C.

d so well. The second line, the Thirty-fourth Illinois and One hundred and twenty-first Ohio Volunteer Infantry, now coming up, held the position against a fierce endeavor by the enemy to retake the guns. The regiment was now formed in the rear, and during the night the wounded were carried back and the dead collected and buried on the field where they fell. On the following morning, September 2, we marched into Jonesborough, and soon after received the news of the evacuation of Atlanta by the enemy and the glorious termination of the campaign. In conclusion, I commend to an honorable mention the officers and men of the regiment. The battles, sieges, marches, and privations they have endured, through heat and through storm, entitles them to the just gratitude and honor of their country. I am, captain, with much respect, your obedient servant, M. R. Vernon, Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding Regiment. Capt. J. S. Wilson, Asst. Adjt. Gen., 2d Brig., 2d Div., 14th Army Corps.

orough on the 1st instant. On the morning of the 2d of September we marched to Jonesborough, and, remaining there with the brigade, marched with it and went into camp near Atlanta on the 8th. A full list of the casualties Embodied in brigade table, p. 683. in the regiment will accompany this report and be a part of it. Throughout the report I have given the names of the officers and many of the men who fell during the campaign, and paid to their memories an humble tribute of respect. This same tribute of respect is as much due from me to all as to aly one, whether he be an officer or private soldier. The graves of the private soldiers will be honored as much as those of the officers,and their memories live as beautiful and bright in the annals of true American patriotism. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, John S. Pearce, Lieutenant-Colonel, Commanding Regiment. Capt. James S. Wilson, Asst. Adjt. Gen., 2d Brig., 2d Div., 14th Army Corps.

Otway Watson, who acted as second in command, I am much indebted for his cordial co-operation and active assistance in the management of the regiment. In conclusion, I can only say that every officer and man of the regiment during the time it was under my command, and, so far as my own observation extends, during the entire campaign, exhibited under all circumstances a willingness to perform any duty and incur any danger for the common good, which should secure for them any reward those in authority can bestow upon the brave man, as he will unquestionably obtain the gratitude of posterity. To them all my most earnest gratitude is due and my warmest thanks extended. All of which is most respectfully submitted. Toland Jones, Captain, Commanding. Capt. James S. Wilson, Asst. Adjt.

Jonesborough. The following officers also deserve special mention for gallantry: Capt. S. B. Morehouse, Company D; Capt. T. C. Lewis, Company H; Capt. J. J. Irvine, Company B; Capt. C. P. Cavis, Company A; Lieut. A. A. Corrello, Company F; Lieut. M. E. Willoughby, Company G; Lieut. John J. Miller, Company E; Lieut. B. A. Banker, Company C; Lieut. James H. Ball, Company G. My adjutant, M. H. Lewis, and Surgeon Hill both did their entire duty, and have my thanks. The health of Lieutenant-Colonel Lawrence has been such the greater part of the campaign as to render him unfit for duty. The instances among the non-commissioned officers and men deserving special notice are too numerous to mention. The gallant conduct of themselves and their fallen comrades on the many hard-contested fields of the campaign has made for them and the regiment names that will live forever. H. B. Banning, Colonel, Commanding 121st Ohio Vol. Infantry. Capt. J. S. Wilson, Assistant Adjutant-General.
