September third, my division was in position at Jonesboro, remaining there until the seventh, when the First and Second brigades broke camps and moved to White Hall, (the Third brigade having previously moved to Atlanta with prisoners and the wounded of the division ;) arrived at White Hall on the ninth, and established camps there; distance marched, (20) twenty miles ; remained in this camp until the twenty eighth. During this time, the officers of the command were busily engaged in bringing up back reports, reclothing the men, and preparing th
salt, which were issued immediately previous to and during the march. We also captured ten very large fine mules and about thirty inferior mules and horses, which were used in packing supplies, and were subsisted, as were our private and public animals, from forage we obtained from the inhabitants. During the march we, in company with the balance of the brigade, assisted in destroying a large amount of the Georgia Central Railroad, in the vicinity of Stone Mountain, Spiers Station, and Jonesboro, and also of the Charleston Railroad at and near Monteith. The amount destroyed by my regiment I am unable to give. Great attempts were made by the enemy to impede our progress by destroying bridges, felling timber in the road, etc., but this caused but little delay, as our efficient pioneer corps soon cleared away all obstructions and rebuilt the bridges. We met with no resistance in force until we arrived at Turkey Roost Swamp, fifteen miles from Savannah. This is an almost impenet
