Pushing rapidly forward, we soon saw the bayonets glistening above the brush; but for the thick undergrowth, but few of the enemy could be seen. In an instant the head of the columns, by fours came upon the road, within thirty-five yards of us, and five yards of one of our men, (Sergeant Brown.) who held his position when he discovered them.

I immediately directed a fire on them from our revolvers, which took effect on at least two of them, one an officer, who was leading the column, probably a lieutenant; we wheeled quickly about, when instantly their first platoon opened fire upon us from a distance of not ov

Company E, Captain Fox, Company C, Captain Haines, Company R, Captain Rea, and Company H, Captain Whisson, took their positions with promptness, eager for the fray, under the command of Major Ward. They remained on the field during the day and night, and assisted in fortifying the place. About two o'clock P. M. we were again attacked, and at this time Company C, Capt J. W.

Colonel Johnson, of the Twelfth Georgia, with an advance guard of 100, held the hostile force in check for an hour, giving the remainder of the command time to prepare for defense, and inspiring them to the fight. Among the memorable incidents of this mountain battle was the heroic conduct of Private J. W.
