This demonstration, and the appearance of the troops at the base of the mountain while going into position, drew forth a heavy fire from the enemy's batterfor their abilities as commanders and distinguished conduct throughout the campaign: Col. H. B. Banning, One hundred and twenty-first Ohio Regiment, and Col. William B. Anderson, Sixtieth Illinois Regiment. There are a number of other regimental commanders, whose rank is less than that of colonel, who have richly earned another

lor and determination will ever win, and the day is ours. When all do well it is difficult to discriminate; many individual cases of personal gallantry have no doubt occurred that will be mentioned in regimental and brigade reports. Since I have been in command of the division I have been ably assisted by Colonel Mitchell and Colonel Dilworth, commanding Second and Third Brigades; they are both able, prompt, and energetic officers, and have earned promotion; I cheerfully recommend it. Colonel Anderson, Sixtieth Illinois Infantry, has been constantly on duty with his regiment, a most faithful and competent officer; he could fill with credit to himself and country a higher position; I recommend him. To my own personal staff I am under obligations for promptness and constant attention to duty. Captain Wiseman, my assistant adjutant-general, merits promotion; I ask it for him. Lieutenant Coe, my acting assistant quartermaster, and Lieutenant Pyatt, my brigade acting commissary of s

reason why the loss in that regiment was comparatively small (2 killed and 28 wounded). The Sixteenth Regiment Illinois Infantry, Lieutenant-Colonel Cahill commanding, followed the Fourteenth Michigan closely, occupied the first line of the enemy's breast-works, turned some of the captured guns upon the retreating foe, entered the earth-works, and held possession of them; This regiment lost 2 killed, 5 wounded, and I missing. The Sixtieth Regiment Illinois Veteran Volunteer Infantry, Col. W. B. Anderson, advanced nearly on a line with, and on the left of, the Fourteenth Michigan, carried the enemy's works in splendid style, bayonets being freely used over, the second line of breast-works. Beyond that line the regiment advanced about 200 yards, threw up breastworks, and remained there all night. Colonel Anderson claims to have captured four pieces of cannon, although they seem to have been the same pieces which the Fourteenth Michigan had already passed by. The regiment captured a

No. 129. report of Col. William B. Anderson, Sixtieth Illinois Infantry. Hdqrs. Sixtieth Illinois Vet. Vol. Infantry, Camp at Jonesborough, Ga., September 6, 1864. Captain: In compliance with orders from brigade headquarters, dated Jonesborough, Ga., September 5, 1864, I have the honor to submit the following report of the movements of my command during the campaign just ended, beginning on the 2d day of May, 1864, and ending on the 1st day of September, 1864, inclusive: May 2, in obedience to orders from brigade headquarters, the Sixtieth Illinois Veteran Volunteers struck tents at Rossville, Ga., and moved out on the Chattanooga and Ringgold road in the direction of Ringgold, marched to Ringgold and encamped for the night. May 5, moved at daybreak through Taylor's Gap, advanced to Stone Church, and deployed four companies as skirmishers, keeping the remaining six companies in reserve, and drove the enemy from an eminence one mile in our front; the regiment held it

s. I observed several striking instances of noble courage and true bravery among subordinate officers and enlisted men, but space forbids that I should specially mention them here; the reports from commanders of regiments must suffice. Captains Anderson, Swift, and Burkhalter, and Lieutenant Tanner, of the brigade staff, are all known to the brigade and appreciated for their coolness and bravery in action. My heartfelt thanks are due to the three last mentioned for the eminent assistance they so cheerfully rendered me during the engagement at Jonesborough on the 1st instant. Captain Anderson, acting assistant adjutant-general of the brigade, while in the discharge of his duties, received a wound just before the command fell to me, thus depriving me of his valuable services. Our honored dead, of whom from this brigade there are many, have all received a soldier's burial, and their scattered graves mark the meandering course of our march all the way from Resaca to Atlanta.
