trip toward Meridian, was sent to drive them out at dawn of the 26th. Granbury executed this movement skillfully and promptly, and the enemy hastily retired. Palmer's forces withdrew during the night of the 26th and were pursued to Ringgold by Wheeler. The Confederate strength in this creditable affair was seven brigades on the 25th and eleven on the 26th. The Federal loss was reported at 43 killed, 267 wounded, 35 missing. The Confederate loss was about 270 killed and wounded. On March 5th, General Wheeler with 600 men passed through Nickajack gap and attacked an Indiana cavalry regiment at Leet's tanyard, contemplating its capture, but the Federals escaped, leaving their camp, wagons and stores, and a number of prisoners in Wheeler's care. In reply to an inquiry from General Johnston he was informed by General Bragg, now acting as military adviser with office at Richmond, that he was desired to have everything in readiness for a forward movement at the earliest practica

In the plan of battle, McPherson was to attack near Little Kenesaw and Thomas about a mile south.

The rest were with that part of the regiment which was on Walker's line of battle. French's artillery kept the enemy at bay south of

On the 22d a furious fire was opened from these guns upon the Federals in front and below, causing much confusion among them; and at night the cannonade was continued, presenting a magnificent spectacle. Sherman concentrated, it is said, over 100 guns against this battery, the terrific fire of which cut down the trees on the summit of the mountain and swept over the heights toward Marietta. On the 22d of June, Hood, on the left, was involved in a bloody fight with troops of Hooker and Schofield. Hood reported that Hindman and Stevenson had been attacked, while Sherman reported that Hood suddenly sallied and opened the fight. It seems from the testimony of officers and men that the Confederates repulsed an attack, and then, driving in the Federal advanced line, attempted to capture some intrenched artillery on a hill.
