It was the news that the 6th Massachusetts regiment had been mobbed by roughs on their passage through Baltimore which gave me the war fever. Concerning this encounter Colonel Edward F. Jones, of the 6th Massachusetts, says in his report: After leaving Philadelphia I received intimation that our passage through the city of Baltimore w

No. 79. report of Capt. Peter Simonson, Fifth Indiana Battery, Chief of artillery, First Division, of operations May 3-June 9. Hdqrs. First Division, Fourth Army Corps, In the Field, near , Ga., June 9, 1864. Captain: I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by the batteries of my command from May 3 up to the present date: The batteries marched with the division by Red Clay, Catoosa Springs, to Tunnel Hill, upon which the enemy appeared to be posted in considerable force. To drive the enemy from this position a strong demonstration by our troops was made, and with whom I sent four guns of the Fifth Indiana Battery, while the real attack was made by securing a lodgment for a brigade and two guns from the same battery. This section advanced down the ridge with the brigade, and assisted in the movement by firing about fifteen rounds of ammunition. On the following day (the 8th ultimo) the Fifth Indiana Battery was engaged in shelling a line of ri

A. J. Smith's defeat of Forrest at Tupelo (July 14th, 1864). by W. S. Burns, Captain, 4TH Missouri cavalry, U. S. V. On the 9th of June, 1864, General A. J. Smith arrived at Memphis with his command from the Red River expedition. His men were scarcely settled in camp when the vanguard of Sturgis's retreating army made its appearance, having just been thoroughly defeated by Forrest at Brice's Cross-roads. General C. C. Washburn, then nominally in command of the large Union department of which Forrest had the real control (excepting the headquarters at Memphis), immediately ordered General Smith to make preparations for an expedition into Forrest's country. On July 1st we had assembled at La Grange, fifty miles east of Memphis. Our forces consisted of the First and Third divisions of the right wing of the Sixteenth Army Corps, commanded respectively by General J. A. Mower and Colonel David Moore, with a division of cavalry, commanded by General B. H. Grierson, and a brigade

aiting for the arrival of their battery. So far from being dismayed, the brave civilians around me, with Colonel Archer at their head, offered to charge the battery, but I knew that the moment they left the cover of the trenches to cross the open ground they would be destroyed by the breechloading carbines of the dismounted men supporting the battery and far overlapping our front. Our only hope was in delay. I called for a volunteer Reservoir Hill, where Kautz's advance was stopped, June 9, 1864. from a photograph made in 1886. The spires of Petersburg are seen to the left of the reservoir. In front of the reservoir is the ravine of Lieutenant's Creek that encircles the eastern outskirts of the city and afforded the Confederates a concealed and convenient way by which either wing of their lines could be reinforced by troops from the other. to mount my horse, find General Wise, and let him know that we could hold out but a very short time longer.

communication could be had with all the other points along my lines. The very deep ravine of which I have spoken, lay between the lookout and the enemy's lines. On the farther side of this ravine was a very high wooded bluff, the elevation of which from the bottom of the ravine to the top was quite equal to the height of the observatory, from which I could communicate by signals to City Point. On the 9th of June General Beauregard sent the following despatch:-- Donlop's House, June 9, 1864, 12 M. General Braxton Bragg: Enemy has erected an observatory at Cobb's which overlooks surrounding country. The twelve pounder Whitworth at arsenal is absolutely required to destroy it. Please send it by express forthwith, with ammunition complete. G. T. Beauregard. A day or two after that I observed from the lookout a small force of men in some activity on the side of the bluff opposite. With our glasses we could observe closely enough to distinguish an officer there. I had

ggett and Crocker, to form a part of the Seventeenth Corps, which corps was to be commanded by Major-General Frank P. Blair, then a member of Congress, in Washington. On the 2d of April I notified him by letter that I wanted him to join and to command these two divisions, which ought to be ready by the 1st of May. General Blair, with these two divisions, constituting the Seventeenth Army Corps, did not actually overtake us until we reached Acworth and Big Shanty, in Georgia, about the 9th of June, 1864. In my letter of April 4th to General John A. Rawlins, chief of staff to General Grant at Washington, I described at length all the preparations that were in progress for the active campaign thus contemplated, and therein estimated Schofield at twelve thousand, Thomas at forty-five thousand, and McPherson at thirty thousand. At first I intended to open the campaign about May 1st, by moving Schofield on Dalton from Cleveland, Thomas on the same objective from Chattanooga, and McPhe
