ta, Ga., on the fourth day of September, 1864, and went into camp. The months of September and October were occupied in building defences around the city and doing garrison duty. On the ninth of Noeth of that month; the teams that were sent out returned loaded with forage. About the last of October, Captain D. W. Sedwick commanded a detachment from the regiment, which foraged in the same locaoccupation of Atlanta by our forces. Forage-parties from the brigade were first organized in October, communication with the rear being intercepted, and in two expeditions to Flat Rock and Stone Mroad on the left, and connecting with the pickets of the First division. During the month of October, heavy details were made from the Second and Third brigades, for work upon the fortifications tty, and the men performed a large amount of hard labor upon these works. During the month of October, four large foraging expeditions were sent out from Atlanta, by authority of the corps commande

Just as a plan of operations for a flank movement had been matured, it was thought proper to withdraw from the army the Eleventh and Twelfth corps for duty in the South-West; these corps leaving on the twenty-fourth of September. Early in October a portion of the troops withdrawn in August were returned, and about the same time considerable accessions to the force under my command were made by drafted men. On the tenth of October, information being received leading to the belief the enemy was about to make some movement, Brigadier-General Buford was sent across the Rapidan with his division of cavalry, with orders to uncover, if practicable, the upper fords, when the First and Sixth corps, in advance on the river, were ordered to fo

One division of Longstreet's corps was sent to the vicinity of Upperville to observe the enemy's movements in front. About the last of October the Federal army began to incline eastwardly from the mountains, moving in the direction of Warrenton. As soon as this intention developed itself, Longstreet's corps was moved across the Blue Ridge, and, about the third of November, took position at Culpeper Court-House, while Jackson advanced one of his divisions to the east side of the Blue Ridge. The enemy gradually concentrated about Warrenton, his cavalry being thrown forward beyond the Rappahannock, in the direction of Culpeper Co

I assumed command of the department December sixteenth, 1862. The eighteenth of December, Brigadier-General Cuvier Grover, with ten thousand (10,000) men, was ordered to take possession of Baton Rouge, then held by the enemy. This was the first step toward the reduction of Port Hudson. The Island of Galveston, Texas, had been captured in October, and was then occupied or held by the navy. Information had been received, previous to my arrival at New Orleans, of a contemplated attack for the recovery of that position by the enemy. Upon consultation with Rear Admiral D. G. Farragut and Major-General Butler, both of whom recommended the measure, the Forty-second Massachusetts volunteers, Colonel Burrill commanding, were sent to occupy the island in support of the navy.
