spot where the fragments of the company camped that survived the battle of Reams Station. Fort Morton and Battery XIV. I drive to Hotel Gary from the Crater, resolved after dinner to locate old Fort Morton if possible. On reaching the vicinity, I call at the house of a gentleman whose farm covers much of the Union line. His name is R. F. Taylor. I am the fifth bearing that name to live on this spot, he informed me. You ask where Fort Morton stood. I think it stood where we now are. When your army established their lines here, the main line ran by my father's house, and a large foable land so I set to work carting it away. Yonder is a small corner of it. I think this was Fort Morton. He was correct, and the massive old earthwork whose mortars and 32s made such merry music hic had been wiped out. From this I easily located old Battery XIV, now tumbled in ruins, and overgrown with bushes and briars. The parapet between Battery XIV and Fort Morton had also been removed.
