[193] necessity. The corps was ordered back, on the 1st of September, to assist in bringing away the Quartermaster's and ordnance stores, and that night the city was evacuated.

The retreat was in the direction of Lovejoy Station. The enemy followed, and on the 4th we fought them two miles north of that place, to such good purpose that on the 5th they returned to Atlanta. The battalion was parked in a field near the station, where it remained till the 18th of September; it then moved to Palmetto, and took position behind a line of fortifications extending from the railroad to the Chattahoochee river.
