Upon being pressed, however, he retreated, under cover of night, across the Etowah; burning the railroad and other b his muskets behind, to attest the severity of the struggle. Hood, instructed to draw Sherman out of Georgia, moved rapidly northwest, threatening again to strike the railroad, and compelling Sherman to make a forced march of 38 miles to save Kingston.
