stay we suffered some from the rebel sharpshooters and artillery. On the night of the 25th we left the works and moved to the right. Early on the 27th we were thrown into the front line of works, then occupied by a brigade of Hooker's corps. To gain this position we were obliged to pass through an open field for several rods. While doing this we lost a good many good men. A charge was made by our division that day, but our regiment did not participate. We lay here until the morning of the 3d, the rebels having evacuated the night before. We followed them through Marietta, and were placed in the front line when we did find them. On the night of July 4 we were sent on picket. That night the rebels again evacuated, and the next day followed them to the Chattahoochee, where we went into camp and remained until the 17th, when we again started and crossed the river and marched about two miles.

We went about a mile to the
y to march at daylight the next morning. On the morning of the 2d we left Rossville and that day reached Ringgold, where we went into camp and lay until the 5th, when we moved through the gap and reached the first station on the outside. On the 7th we moved to Tunnel Hill, and in the afternoon five companies of our regiment were deployed as skirmishers and moved forward, driving the rebels from the hill and holding it.

About noon one company was deployed and sent to the right to try to dislodge the rebel sharpshooters, who were getting very troublesome. This they found to be impossible on account of the position.

Three companies were sent into the gap with orders to go as far as possible and try to discover the rebel artillery, which they had thus far succeeded in keeping concealed. In this they were successful. They advanced steadily until the rebels opened their batteries upon them, when they laid down and awaited orders.
