Report of General Patton Anderson of operations of his division from 30th of July to 31st of August, 1864, including the battle of Jonesboro, Georgia. [From the original unpublished Ms. in archives of the Southern Historical Society.] Monticello, Florida, February 9th, 1865. In compliance with circular order from Headquarters Lee's Corps, dated January 24th, 1864-a copy of which reached me by mail on yesterday — I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of the division I commanded from the 30th of July to the 31st of August, inclusive: On the 28th of July, 1864, Hindman's division, of Lee's corps, was hotly engaged with the enemy about three miles from Atlanta, on the Lickskillet road and near the poorhouse. In that engagement the division lost in killed, wounded and missing upwards of five hundred men and officers. On the 29th I was assigned to, and on the 30th assumed, the command of the division, consisting of Sharp's and Brantley's brigades of

render of the Army of Northern Virginia, but to ask the terms of your proposition. To be frank, I do not think the emergency has arisen to call for the surrender of this army, but, as the restoration of peace should be the sole object of all, I desired to know whether your proposals would lead to that end. I cannot, therefore, meet you with a view to surrender the Army of Northern Virginia; but as far as your proposal may affect the Confederate States forces under my command, Since February 9th, 1865, Lee had been general-in-chief of all the Confederate armies, and, evidently, was aiming here at a treaty of peace and general surrender.--editors. and tend to the restoration of peace, I should be pleased to meet you at 10 A. M. to-morrow on the old stage road to Richmond, between the picket-lines of the two armies. R. E. Lee, General. Lieutenant-General U. S. Grant. General Grant had been able to get but very little sleep. He now sat up and read the letter, and after making a f

down to the lower bay to await a fair wind and get to sea when an opportunity offered. Yet the steamers that did attempt to run the blockade often failed, as was the case with the Will-o‘--the-Wisp (steamer), which was burned off Galveston by an expedition under Lieutenant O. E. McKay, of the Princess Royal. The Will-o‘--Wisp had been run on shore off the harbor of Galveston, where she was caught in the act of landing some heavy guns, and was chased on shore. On the night of the 9th of February, 1865, a boat expedition was fitted out by Commander M. B. Woolsey, consisting of two boats' crews, one from the Princess Royal, and the other from the gun-boat Antona, the whole under command of Lieutenant McKay, with orders to go in and destroy the steamer and prevent her landing the arms and stores she had on board. The boats shoved off from the Princess Royal between 2 and 3 A. M., while the ship and the Antona moved in toward shore and took up a position about nine hundred yards from
atteries of light artillery. Their returns for October 31, 1864,--just before starting on the Tennessee campaign — show 10,624 officers and men present for duty. The corps was actively engaged at the battle of Franklin, but at Nashville it was largely held in reserve. In the latter action, Ruger's (2d) Division was commanded by Major-General Darius N. Couch. In January, 1865. the corps moved from Nashville, via Washington, to North Carolina, Cox's Division landing at Fort Fisher, February 9, 1865. Moving up the river, the corps fought at Fort Anderson, and at Wilmington, February 21st, capturing the latter place. In the meantime, another division was formed, and designated as the First Division, with General Ruger in command. This division was actively engaged in the victory at Kinston, N. C. (Wise's Forks), which resulted in the occupation of Goldsboro. General Cox succeeded Schofield, the latter having been promoted to the command of the Army of the Ohio, which, since the
e Twenty-fourth Corps, but remaining in North Carolina, were reorganized as the Tenth Corps, to which they originally belonged. 46 145 -- 191 169th New York Part of this loss occurred in the explosion of the magazine, after the capture of the fort.
