apturing 13 prisoners, of whom the skirmishers of the Twenty-first took 7. The enemy that night abandoned his position and fell back to Kenesaw Mountain, and the regiment moved up and took position at that place. Here the movements are identical with those of the brigade, changing position as ordered from one part of the line of the army to another, constantly under the fire from the enemy's artillery, and a part of the regiment nearly every day on the skirmish line. In the night of July 2, 1864, the enemy again evacuated his position; during this engagement lost 3 killed and 3 wounded. July 3, marched through Marietta, Ga., and went into camp about three miles south of that place. July 4, this regiment was deployed as skirmishers, covering the brigade, and advanced — about one mile south, where they came upon the enemy's works and became sharply engaged with his skirmishers, driving them. July 5, the enemy fell back to the Chattahoochee and the brigade followed. Having advanc

my. . . . So that on the 1st of July, 1864, General Grant thought he would be strengthened with General Smith commanding the right wing of that army. On the strength of that letter I was placed in command of the troops in the field belonging to the Army of the James, and General Butler was ordered back to administrative duty at Fort Monroe. Being much out of health at this time, I had asked for a short leave of absence, to which this answer was returned: headquarters, City Point, July 2d, 1864. to Major-General William F. Smith: Your application for leave of absence has just come to me. Unless it is absolutely necessary that you should leave at this time, I would much prefer not having you go. It will not be necessary for you to expose yourself in the hot sun, and if it should become necessary I can temporarily attach General Humphreys to your command. U. S. Grant.

And why? Before the 2d of July a complaint was made by General Hancock of this article, asking that the author, who was a reporter at the Headquarters of the Eighteenth Corps, might be dealt with. On the 2d of July Grant sent me the following order:-- City Point, July 2, 1864, 11 o'clock A. M. Major-General Butler: A correspondent, Mr.----, understood to be with your command, has published in the N. Y. Tribune of 27th an article false and slanderous upon a portion of the army now in the field. You will please direct his arrest and have him sent here. U. S. Grant.

Battle of Reams's Station-report of General W. C. Wickham. Headquarters Wickham's brigade, July 2, 1864. Major J. D. Ferguson, A. A. G., Fitz Lee's Cavalry Division: Major,--I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by my command in the engagement of June 29, 1864, near Reams's Station: Upon reaching Carter's house I was ordered to dismount one of my regiments and send it in to the support of General Lomax, who had been ordered to make a flank attack whilst General Mahone attacked in front; to keep two regiments in hand ready for mounted action, and to put one in rear of our trains to guard them. The Second Virginia cavalry was dismounted, and supported General Lomax in his attack. This attack was followed by a rout. So soon as the enemy began to fly my two mounted regiments (the Third and Fourth Virginia) were thrown forward in the pursuit, passing the park of the enemy's wagons and caissons that they had fired. I made a detail that saved nin
