Early on the morning of the 2.2d it was discovered that the enemy had again evacuated, and Company C, Captain Byrd, on the skirmish line, picked up a few stragglers. During the forenoon we moved forward toward Atlanta, and about noon went into position near the city, on the left of the first line of the brigade, and completed a line of works which some regiments of General Newton's division had begun. These works we occupied during the whole time of the siege of Atlanta, from the 22d day of July until the night of the 25th of August.
