On the twenty-eighth instant, we marched back toward Tennville, and destroyed the railroad as we wenbout eight P. M., and marched about seven (7) miles toward Atlanta. On the twenty-eighth, started about noon, and reached the regimental camp at Atlanta about six P who had been sent some five miles south-east of Stone Mountain. On the twenty-eighth, the regiment remained in camp until four P. M., when with brigade it moved
