in momentary readiness to move. July 23, 24, 25, and 26, my corps remained substantially in the same position, having completed a system of works strong enough to be held by a thin single line. July 27, in obedience to orders from Major-General Sherman, I took leave of the Fourth Army Corps and assumed command of the Army of the Tennessee. In conclusion I wish to say that it pains me not to be able to give a substantial reward to officers who have so faithfully, so energetically, anheir command I must leave without special notice, from the fact that otherwise the list would be too extended. For gallantry, efficiency, unflinching activity, and gentlemanly deportment I commend the different members of my staff, viz: Col. F. T. Sherman, chief of staff (captured while reconnoitering, July 7); Lieut. Col. J. S. Fullerton, assistant adjutant-general; Lieut. Col. C. H. Howard, assistant inspector-general; Lieut. Col. H. Hayes, chief quartermaster; Lieut. Col. D. Remick, chief

Sherman, at that time commanding First Brigade, Second Division, Fourth Army Corps, to relieve part of the Third Brigade of same division and corps, at the time hotly engaged with the enemy. In doing so my regiment, which was on the right, had to d held our position until our men were entirely out of ammunition, when we fell back to the above-mentioned creek.

On the evening of the 11th I was directed tur troops the day before. On the morning of the 15th General Newton directed me to relieve Colonel Sherman's brigade, which was done accordingly, and a heavy fire kept up throughout the day between nt near Adairsvi]le, where enemy were found in force, my brigade taking position in rear of Colonel Sherman's, which was skirmishing heavily with the enemy, my troops being disposed so as to cover and protect Sherman's right flank. Late in the evening I relieved Colonel Sherman's command with my brigade, and continued skirmishing with the enemy till after dark, suffering a loss in my command ofColonel Sherman's command with my brigade, and continued skirmishing with the enemy till after dark, suffering a loss in my command of 26 men wounded.

They contemplated that Sherman's column, which was arriving by the north banmberland--the centre — should co-operate with Sherman; and that Hooker with a mixed command should xtreme right as circumstances might warrant.

On the 24th General Sherman made an attack for the purpose of carryin troops, being now practically connected from Sherman to Kooker, confronted it with the Army of theot of supply-and as they progressed, I pushed Sherman's brigade along the road behind them.

nth Illinois, who fell heroically leading his regiment to the charge. I refer with pride to the splendid conduct, bravery, and efficiency of the following regimental commanders, and the officers and men of their respective commands: Colonel F. T. Sherman, Eighty-eighth Illinois. Major F. Ehrler, Second Missouri. Lieutenant-Colonel John Weber, Fifteenth Missouri. Captain W. W. Barrett, Forty-fourth Illinois, (wounded). Major W. A. Preston, Seventy-third Illinois (wounded). Major Sr; Lieutenant Shaw, Seventh Illinois cavalry, were with me all day on the field, and carried my orders everywhere with the greatest courage. Lieutenant Simmons was severely injured by a fragment of a shell. I cannot commend the conduct of Doctor Sherman, Ninth Indiana volunteers, Medical Director, too highly. At all times from the commencement of the march from Nashville, and during the battles and skirmishes in which the division was engaged, up to the occupation of Murfreesboro, he was al

ority in numbers, we would beat the Yankees. He was informed that Sherman's line was twenty-eight miles long. While we beat back Sherman's Sherman's right, Stewart, with over twenty thousand men, was to fall on his left centre, cut it, and drive them down the river, thus cutting off escape and capturing two- thirds of Sherman's army. The plan was certainly bold and ambitions enough in its scope. In attempting too much, he acc. It would have been better had he been satisfied merely to drive Sherman back and defeat his campaign. I believe he could have done this by throwing all of his army upon a part of Sherman's — the nearest part of it to Atlanta.
