ed. By orders from Major-General Stanley, Division Commander, we marched, with the balance of his command, on the third day of May, 1864, from our camp at Blue Springs, near Cleveland, Tennessee, to Red Clay, on the Georgia state line, and camped for the night. May 4.--Marched with the division to Catoosa Springs, Georgia (with light skirmishing), for concentration with the army, where we rested until May seventh, when we marched with the corps, drove the enemy from, and possessed Tunnel Hill, Georgia. For several succeeding days we advanced upon, and ineffectually endeavored to drive the enemy from Rocky-Face Ridge, in our front. My position was on the left of the rail and wagon roads leading through Buzzard-Roost Gap, on the Dalton road. The enemy had strongly fortified this pass and the the high ridge on either side. I had some previous knowledge of the position, and knew that it was impregnable to our assaults, but in obedience to orders, we frequently made the attempt with

Not what I will, but what Thou wilt! . . . We are hoping that this campaign will end the war! With our left well covered by Ed. McCook's cavalry, our Fourth Corps, at last together, emerging from Cleveland, commenced to move in two columns; the left passed through Red Clay and the other farther west by Salem Church. The morning of May 4th found us at Catoosa Springs. These springs were on the left of General Thomas's army lines. His whole front looked eastward toward Tunnel Hill. Tunnel Hill, Ga., was between the Northern and Southern armies, the dividing ridge; it was the outpost of Johnston's advanced troops, which faced toward Chattanooga. The bulk of his force was behind, at the village of Dalton, covered by artificial works northward and eastward, and by the mountain range of Rocky Face Ridge toward the west. The famous defile through this abrupt mountain was called Buzzard's Roost Gap. From Rocky Face to Tunnel Hill, which is a parallel range of heights, the Chattanooga

y of the Potomac. The serious fight began at 11 a. m., and the Federal charges were repulsed. During a. lull in the fight the Second, Fifteenth and Twenty-fourth. Arkansas, Lieutenant-Colonel Warfield, were sent to support Key's artillery on Tunnel hill. About 1 p. m. a desperate attack was made on that position. Warfield's men were moved out to the crest of the hill, and they met the advance with such an effective fire that the column stopped just below the crest and took shelter. Tier afanswer, and officers of Warfield's regiment pitched down heavy rocks, with apparent effect. After an hour and a half of this, Warfield proposed a charge, and it was made, the Arkansans participating with empty guns. Sherman was repulsed from Tunnel hill, and began fortifying. The brunt of the fight against Sherman was borne by Smith's Texans, Warfield's Arkansas regiment, and Swett's and Key's batteries. Warfield's regiment captured a Federal flag. A little later the appalling news reach
uglas' battery, under Lieut. John H. Bingham, in position to enfilade an attacking line. Here they were attacked next morning by portions of four divisions under General Sherman. The enemy made a brave charge on Sweet's battery on the top of Tunnel hill, but were repulsed by a countercharge of Mills' regiment and part of the Seventh. In this charge both General Smith and Colonel Mills were severely wounded at the head of their troops, and Colonel Granbury took command of the brigade. In les, but was repulsed by the Texas artillery and infantry. Swett's battery suffered so severely that Colonel Granbury was forced to make a detail from the infantry to man the guns. Now some other troops were brought up to support the battery on Tunnel hill. At 1 p. m. a still more determined assault was made. Tier after tier of the enemy, to the foot of the hill and in the valley beyond, concentrated their fire until, General Cleburne reported, there seemed to be a continuous sheet of hissing,

of the enemy. Howard, however, by moving through Parker's gap to Red Clay, had already turned Ringgold; but, of this, neither Grant nor Hooker was as yet aware. So, Sherman rode on to Ringgold, and found the rebels had already fallen back to Tunnel hill. The enemy was out of the valley of the Chickamauga, and on ground where the waters flow to the Coosa. He was driven from Tennessee. Grant now directed the pursuit to be discontinued, and, at one P. M., he dispatched to Thomas: Direct Graoad crossing of the Hiawassee, to protect Granger's flank until he should get across that stream; and to prevent further reenforcements being sent, by that route, into East Tennessee. A reconnoissance was made by Hooker, in the direction of Tunnel hill, the rebel line of retreat; and caissons, wagons, dead and dying men were found strewn along the way, to a horrible extent. The reconnoitring force returned on the night of the 27th, and then went into bivouac. The railroad at Ringgold was t
umors came thick, to the rebel leader, of a battle at Chattanooga, and, finally, reports that Bragg had fallen back to Tunnel hill. Longstreet at once determined to assault the works of Knoxville. He considered, that in the event of Bragg's defeatut on the 29th, and caused the enemy, now commanded by Joseph E. Johnston, who had succeeded Hardee, to fall back from Tunnel hill. On the 1st of February, it was learned that a whole division and a brigade had been sent from Johnston, in the dire last Monday, to demonstrate against Dalton, to prevent forces being sent from there against Sherman. Our troops have Tunnel hill. Longstreet, at the same time, made a retrograde movement, and Schofield started immediately in pursuit. On the 25th, Thomas reported to Grant, from Tunnel hill: Davis and Johnson (two of his division commanders) occupy the pass at Buzzard's roost. They have a force equal to theirs in their front, who outnumber them in artillery. It is not possible to carry th
