of Atlanta, until the twenty-ninth of September, on which day, at an early hour, General Morgan's division (Second) left by railroad for Chattanooga and Huntsville, to operate against Forrest's forces, then threatening our communications in the vicinity of Decatur and Athens, Alabama. The other two divisions remained in camp, holding themselves in readiness to move against Hood, as soon as the object of the movement he was then making on our right flank could be determined. On the third of October, in obedience to instructions from the headquarters of the military division of the Mississippi, following the Fourth corps, my command reached the Chattahoochee River, at the railroad crossing, at nightfall; but, owing to the rain and high water, the bridges became very insecure, and the crossing was not accomplished until the next morning. The troops only marched as far as Nickajack, and went into camp to await the arrival of the wagons, detained at the river by the crossing of Gen
consin, Tenth Wisconsin, and Fifteenth Kentucky. The entire Second brigade was detached about the last of September and ordered to Lookout Mountain. On the third of October, I commenced the campaign against the rebel army under Hood, who had gone to our rear and was operating on our communications. The march was continued daily Hood, through North-western Georgia to the border of Alabama. The following statements show the principal points arrived at during these marches. On the third day of October, the brigade marched with the division from Atlanta, and on the night of the fifth it bivouacked near Marietta. On the morning of the sixth, we again resuovements of this division in consequence: October first and second, division remained in camp, situated about one mile south of the city of Atlanta. On Monday, October third, at ten o'clock P. M., pursuant to orders from corps headquarters, tents were struck and the march commenced toward railroad bridge. Crossing the Chattaho

September 20.--The regiment took part in the review of the division by Major-General Slocum. September 21 to October 3.--The regiment remained in same camp. October 4.--Moved at six o'clock P. M. into the rebel defences of the city of Atlanta, on the Marietta road; the One Hundred and Fiftieth regiment on the right of the brigade. Very large details of froment since the date of my last report made soon after the occupation of Atlanta, on the sixth of September: From this date to the fifth of November, the regiment remained in camp south of Atlanta, near the line of rebel works, and from the third of October to the last-named date, furnished nearly one half of the effective force of the regiment for fatigue and picket-duty; the fatigue-party having been engaged in building a new line of works about the city. On the fourteenth of September, two
nt of their cavalry, and that Hood had crossed a part, if not all his force, over the Chattahoochee. I ascertained, on the second instant, that the enemy's cavalry had destroyed the railroad at or near Big Shanty, that Wheeler was at Villanow, and had sent a detachment to assault Dalton, which sent in a summons to surrender, but did not await to attack. Later in the day a train was captured near Acworth, and the road torn up three miles south of Allatoona, and on the following day, (October third,) General Sherman ordered me to suspend a movement I contemplated, stating that Hood was gradually developing his plans, which were of a very extensive character. At noon, on the fourth instant, they were sufficiently discovered to induce General Sherman to signal from Kenesaw (telegraph communication having been destroyed) that Hood was moving on Allatoona, thence to Rome. Large fires were discovered from the Allatoona Heights along the track toward Big Shanty. In short, there remain
