andersville — the Fourteenth via Black Spring, and the Twentieth via Hebron. The two corps reached Sandersville almost simultaneously on the morning of November twenty-sixth, driving the enemy's cavalry very rapidly through the town. On the twenty-seventh, both corps moved toward Louisville; two divisions of the Fourteenth, unincumbered by wagons, going via Fenor's Bridge, for the purpose of protecting our left flank, and to uncover the crossing of Ogeechee River and Rocky Comfort Creek, at a n a road on our left. In the afternoon, the First and Second divisions were moved down to Tennille Station, (No 13,) the Third division being left to cover the trains. The First Michigan engineers reported for duty with the corps. On the twenty-seventh, twenty-eighth, and twenty-ninth, the Central Railroad and all wag-on-bridges over Williamson's Swamp Creek were destroyed from Tennille Station to the Ogeechee River, including the long railroad bridge over that stream, by the First and Seco
e going into camp. On the following morning, (twenty-sixth,) two regiments of Carman's brigade, Jackson's division, drove away the rebel cavalry, and the corps moved rapidly into Sandersville, entering simultaneously with the Fourteenth corps, upon a road on our left. In the afternoon, the First and Second divisions were moved down to Tennille Station, (No 13,) the Third division being left to cover the trains. The First Michigan engineers reported for duty with the corps. On the twenty-seventh, twenty-eighth, and twenty-ninth, the Central Railroad and all wag-on-bridges over Williamson's Swamp Creek were destroyed from Tennille Station to the Ogeechee River, including the long railroad bridge over that stream, by the First and Second divisions and Michigan Engineers. The Third division marched with the trains, via Davisboro, across the Ogeechee and Rocky Comfort Rivers, and encamped near Louisville. On the thirtieth, the First and Second divisions moved up the Ogeechee to
gh Covington to Harris's plantation, where we turned southward toward Shady Dale, and on to Milledgeville, where we arrived on the twenty-third. On the twenty-fourth, we crossed the Oconee and marched on Sandersville, arriving there on the twenty-seventh. On the twenty-eighth, we arrived at Davisboro. Continuing the march due east, through Louisville, we struck the Augusta and Millen Railroad at Lumpkins Station, and destroyed three miles of railroad, all the buildings, platforms, wood, etcay of November I camped my troops about one mile from Milledgeville. On the morning of the twenty-fourth, my brigade marched through Milledgeville, and crossing the Oconee River, we took the Sandersville road, and reached Sandersville on the twenty-seventh. Here I received orders from General Davis to hold the town until all the trains of the Fourteenth army corps and General Kilpatrick's trains had passed, and then follow as an escort. About seven o'clock P. M., the trains having passed, I

Early on the twenty-seventh, by General Geary's direction, I sent out two re marched on this day was nine miles. On the twenty-seventh, my brigade marched in the centre of the divisied about half a mile of the railroad. On the twenty-seventh, we reached Davisboro Station, on the Georgia Cight, having marched about twelve miles. On the twenty-seventh, we marched to Davisboro, a distance of about trailroad, and camped for the night. On the twenty-seventh instant, we continued the destruction of the road ut doing picket-duty for the division. On the twenty-seventh, the picket was attacked by a small scouting-pa roads, remaining here until the evening of the twenty-seventh, when the column started about eight P. M., andountain, having marched twenty miles. On the twenty-seventh, most of the regiment remained in camp, guardin
e River and encamped seven (7) miles from the city. In continuing our march, we crossed Ogeechee Shoals, passing through Glosscock County, leaving Sparta to the left and Sandersville to the right. We reached Waynesboro on the evening of the twenty-seventh, built a barricade near the railroad, and occupied it with my regiment. During the night the enemy made several desperate attacks upon our lines, but were each time handsomely repulsed, without loss to us. The Eighth Indiana, on our leftured, reports their loss to have been sixty-five (65) men killed and wounded. Our loss was two (2) men captured. From the twenty-first to the twenty-sixth instant, nothing worthy of record, save the incidents usual to a march. On the twenty-seventh instant, my regiment was detailed as rear-guard. We fought the enemy all day, losing but one man wounded. In our action with Wheeler, on the twenty-eighth instant, my regiment formed the right centre of the brigade, supporting a battery. The
, in a field beside the railroad. 27th. Our regiment moved on to the railroad again at eight A. M., in advance of the division, and deployed companies B and F as skirmishers. The balance of the regiment was the advance-guard. The rest of the division engaged in destroying the track. Left the railroad at three P. M., and marched to Davisboro, and bivouacked at nine P. M. 28th. The regiment marched at eight A. M. back on to the railroad, to the point at which they left it on the twenty-seventh, and tore up and destroyed the track to the wagon-road leading to Davisboro. About four P. M., a small body of rebel cavalry made a dash at the Third brigade where they were at work, but seeing our strength, skedaddled on double-quick, only wounding one man in the brigade. Returned to Davisboro, and bivouacked at eight P. M. 29th. Marched at six A. M. Bivouacked at seven P. M., six miles east of Spears's Station. Regiment went on picket. 30th. Marched at half-past 6 A.

Previous to this, we had taken the following prisoners: John Gaylard, citizen, but suspected guerrilla; James M. Fleetwood, late of rebel gunboat Macon, and branch pilot of Savannah; John Ganaan, and J. B. Metzger, Thirty-first Georgia; all of whom have been turned over to the Provost-Marshal. On the evening of the twenty-seventh, the scouts of General Davis's column reached here, and soon after, the rest of the Fourteenth corps. They had been delayed by the very bad roads, and the great amount of corduroying to be done. The movements of this wing are greatly impeded by the great freshets, but officers and men are working with great energy and perseverance, and will no doubt overcome all difficulties. This ship is now anchored about a mile above the pontoon-bridge, or at the old ferry, on the lookout for the

The Second corps arrived at Robertson's Tause that a junction of the centre and right columns was not made early in the morning of the twenty-seventh, and was one of the primary causes of the failure of the whole movement. In consequence of reinforced by Hill. Prisoners reported that Hill did not come up till the afternoon of the twenty-seventh, so that if the movements of the Third corps had been prompt and vigorous on the twenty-sevetwenty-seventh, assisted by the Sixth and Second, there was every reason to believe Ewell could have been overcome before the arrival of Hill. And after the enemy, through these culpable delays, had been permit one the Third corps should have taken. The point marked Tom Morris is the scene of the action of the twenty-seventh ultimo. Very respectfully, etc., George G. Meade, Major-General Commanding.
oad Run. The enemy halted at Bristoe. General Jackson's force being much inferior to that of General Pope, it became necessary for him to withdraw from Manassas and take a position west of the turnpike road from Warrenton to Alexandria, where he could more readily unite with the approaching column of Longstreet. Having fully supplied the wants of his troops, he was compelled for want of transportation to destroy the rest of the captured property. This was done during the night of the twenty-seventh, and fifty thousand pounds of bacon, one thousand barrels of corned beef, two thousand barrels of salt pork, and two thousand barrels of flour, besides other property of great value, were burned. Taliaferro's division moved during the night by the road to Sudley, and crossing the turnpike near Groveton, halted on the west side, near the battle-field of July twenty-first, 1861, where it was joined, on the twenty-eighth, by the divisions of Hill and Ewell.
