out near the left of our front, and about two hundred yards in rear of the works, where comfortable huts were erected and drill and parade-grounds prepared. Regular hours of service were established, and when not otherwise engaged as herein reported, squad, company, regimental, and brigade drills, dress-parades, and reviews were regularly held by the entire command. 14th. The Sixtieth New-York veteran volunteers was detailed, by order of the General commanding division, to proceed to Chattanooga to escort paymasters to Atlanta, which duty was performed without particular incident, and the regiment reported back on September twenty-second. October 11th.--The brigade, except the Twenty-ninth Pennsylvania veteran volunteers, constituted a part of a foraging force of about two thousand infantry, with artillery and cavalry, under command of Brigadier-General Geary, which proceeded to the vicinity of Flat Rock Shoals, about twenty miles from Atlanta, and returned on the fourteenth O

On the twenty-eighth, started about noon, and reached the regimental camp at Atlanta about six P. M. On the fifth November, 1864, pursuant to orders received from brigade commander, the regiment broke camp at Atlanta and moved out upon the McDonald road, about two (2) miles south of the city, and bivouacked. About noon, on the sixth November, orders were received to move back to our original camp, which was done. On the ninth November, 1864, the enemy attacked the picket-line on the Macon road, and advanced with a section of artillery and a few dismounted cavalry toward our works. The regiment was quickly moved into its position in the works, and there remained awaiting any attack which the enemy might make. After shelling our line a short time, the enemy retired. During the attack, one man was slightly wounded by a shell. From this time until the commencement of the Georgia campaign, the men were preparing for the active service which was soon to commence. In the

tation; east of that place, there was considerable swamp and marshy ground. The country through which we passed on the Louisville road was excellent, the plantations being large and the buildings fine. After leaving that road, the country is poorerthirteen miles. December 9.--Moved at half-past 8 A. M., following the First division. At Zion Church we struck the Louisville road, and there turned to the left, on the main road running due east to Monteith Station. At Monteith Swamp, five milight march of about fifteen miles, I reported the brigade to the division commander about three (3) miles north of Louisville, Georgia. On the following morning the march was resumed, but until the ninth of December, nothing of importance occurreabout one half-mile in width. During the day we had to pass through several severe swamps. We passed through Louisville, Jefferson county, in the evening; later in the night a dense fog made the march very slow, and it was with much difficulty that

mmand remained quietly in camp. On the twenty-first, it was detailed on duty in the fire department, and remained on that duty during the whole time that Atlanta was occupied by our forces. On the fifteenth of October, the regiment went with the brigade on a foraging expedition to Flat Shoals, on which expedition the regiment was gone four days, and loaded thirty-two wagons with forage. Again, on the twenty-sixth of October, the regiment went with the brigade on a foraging expedition to Berkshire Post-Office, remaining four days, and in conjunction with the Eighty-second Ohio veteran volunteers loading sixty wagons with forage. During the remainder of the time until the commencement of the recent expedition, the regiment remained quietly in camp. On the morning of the fifteenth of November, the regiment left the city of Atlanta, or rather what was left of the city of Atlanta, and started on the great raid through Georgia, and marched on that day to Stone Mountain, a distance of

salt, which were issued immediately previous to and during the march. We also captured ten very large fine mules and about thirty inferior mules and horses, which were used in packing supplies, and were subsisted, as were our private and public animals, from forage we obtained from the inhabitants. During the march we, in company with the balance of the brigade, assisted in destroying a large amount of the Georgia Central Railroad, in the vicinity of Stone Mountain, Spiers Station, and Jonesboro, and also of the Charleston Railroad at and near Monteith. The amount destroyed by my regiment I am unable to give. Great attempts were made by the enemy to impede our progress by destroying bridges, felling timber in the road, etc., but this caused but little delay, as our efficient pioneer corps soon cleared away all obstructions and rebuilt the bridges. We met with no resistance in force until we arrived at Turkey Roost Swamp, fifteen miles from Savannah. This is an almost impenet

g senior in rank, assumed command of the brigade on the morning of September twenty-second. On September twenty-eighth, the One Hundred and Forty-first regiment New-York volunteers were detailed to report to Colonel Crane, One Hundred and Seventh New-York volunteers, for duty in the city, in accordance with orders from division h through an almost impenetrable swamp and thicket, to give room between the One Hundred and Fiftieth and Third Wisconsin for the One Hundred and Seventh regiment New-York volunteers. This regiment halted in this line; but seeing the other regiments advancing and the rebels running away, advanced to the fort. The men and officersps by their artillery fire. My troops were kept well concealed, and it was impossible for the enemy to make any correct estimate of my force. Received to-day New-York papers of the tenth, being our first Northern news since leaving Atlanta. December 16.--No change in position to-day. The usual sharp-shooting from our side

rteenth corps, who came in on another road to the left. Moving to the right, I followed the enemy through town, and one mile beyond, skirmishing a little. My loss was two men wounded belonging to the Thirteenth New-Jersey volunteers. I was then recalled and ordered with the rest of the division to Tennille Station, on the Georgia Central Railroad, where I destroyed about three miles of track and encamped for the night. November 27.--Marched to Davisboro, Station No. 22, crossed Williamson Swamp Creek. November 28.--Destroyed three miles of railroad track and marched to Spiers Station. November 29.--Destroyed four miles of railroad track of Georgia Central, two saw-mills and lumber-yards, and the timber for four (4) large bridges ready for use; one of the bridges was marked Strawberry Plains, one Chattanooga Creek, the other two names have escaped my memory. This timber has been gotten out and made ready for use, even to having the pegs to unite it, turned, and was intended

osure was very foul and fetid. A short distance outside the stockade was a long trench, at the head of which was a board bearing the inscription: 650 buried here. On rising ground, a short distance south-east of the prison, were two forts, not yet completed; south-west of this stockade was a smaller one in process of construction. This prison, if indeed it can be designated as such, afforded convincing proofs that the worst accounts of the sufferings of our prisoners at Andersonville, at Americus, and Millen, were by no means exaggerated. I crossed the railroad about three miles north of Millen. The track at the crossing had been destroyed, and the ties were burning, this work having been performed by the troops preceding. A short distance beyond the creek, my column and trains became involved in a long and almost impassable swamp. To add to the difficulty, night closed in before my advance had crossed, and it was with the utmost labor, and only by the united efforts of myself,

Crossed Yellow River, and encamped at ten P. M. near Rockbridge Post-Office. Marched ten miles. November 17th.--Marched at ten A. M., in the rear. Crossed No Business, Big Haynes, and Little Haynes Creeks, and encamped for the night near Flat Creek, the rear of the division not getting up until after midnight. Distance, thirteen miles. November 18th.--Marched at seven A. M., still having the rear of the corps. Passed through Social Circle at noon, where we crossed to the south side ofumn was greatly detained by the trains, which moved very slowly, owing to the heavy loads carried in the wagons, and the difficult places in the road. My command did not get into camp until one hour after midnight, when it reached a point near Flat Creek. The distance marched on this day was about thirteen miles. My brigade marched, following the Second brigade of the First division, and charged with the protection of about one hundred wagons, at eight A. M., on the eighteenth. It passed A
