the Ogeechee Blair crosses at Fort Argyle Slocum crosses at Louisville Sherman approaches Savanuah Hazen storms Fort McAllister Sherman hears from Foster and Dahlgren Starts for Hilton head Hardee evacuates Savannah Sherman's losses and capf railroad; King's bridge having been burned by the enemy. No force remained in our front here save the garrison of Fort McAllister. And now Blair's pontoons were laid across the Ogeechee, near Fort Argyle, and the two wings thus substantially uniaguered, and the mystery which had hung over Sherman's march and its destination dispelled. Hazen was in front of Fort McAllister on our left, and had been exchanging shots with it — hoping thus to attract the attention of our fleet blockading thtorpedoes and abatis, through a shower of grape, up to and over the parapet, and, after a brief but desperate struggle, McAllister was ours. Her garrison of 200 surrendered; having 40 or 50 killed and wounded to our 90. Among the spoils were 22 gun
The next effort on our side was made — probably with intent mainly to develop the strength with which the Rebel lines confronting ours were still held — on the old beaten and bloody track ; the 5th and 2d corps, with Gregg's cavalry, pushing out Feb. 5. from our left to Reams's station, and thence to Dinwiddie C. H.: the 5th corps being directed to turn the Rebel right, while the 2d assailed it in front. The two corps having taken position on the Rebel flank — Smythe's division and McAllister's brigade of Mott's having gallantly repulsed the enemy's attempt to turn the right of the former — Gregg's cavalry were drawn back from Dinwiddie C. H. to Warren's left, which, under Crawford, was now Feb. 6. thrown forward to Dabney's mill, whence he drove a Rebel force under Gen. Pegram, who was killed. By this time, the enemy had sent a strong force around our left, to strike it in flank and rear, after the Stonewall Jackson fashion. Gregg's cavalry was first assailed by this for
al coast defenses, 458; his gunboats advance near charleston, 460; failure of his attack on Fort McAllister, 463-4; his partiality to deck-fighting, 472. Duryea, Gen., at South Mountain, 198. D.

The Fifteenth Corps was one of the organizations resulting from the partition of the Thirteenth Corps, December 18, 1862. General William T. Sherman was assigned to its ted to the sea, the Fifteenth had a brisk engagement at Griswoldville, in which Walcutt's Brigade, of Woods' Division, repelled a determined attack; and, again, upon reaching the sea, Hazen's Division was the one selected for the storming of Fort McAllister. Savannah was evacuated December 21, 1864, after a short siege, and on the 1st of February, Sherman's Army started on its grand, victorious march through the Carolinas. General Logan having returned, he was again in command of his corps,
transferred in March, 1864, to the Second Corps, becoming the First Brigade (McAllister's) of Mott's (4th) Division. This division was subsequently merged into Birnp and transferred to the Second Corps. The Eleventh thereupon became part of McAllister's Brigade, Mott's Division, Second Corps, in which Corps it fought during thers and three color bearers were killed there. In 1864 the regiment served in McAllister's Brigade, Mott's Division, Second Corps.
