amped for the night. August 27.--Marched, with corps, four miles south, to Camp creek, and camped. August 28.--Marched south-east three miles, to Red Oak statioe, and his left abreast the town. General Thomas came up on his left, facing Camp Creek, and General Schofield broke his way through the dense forest to General Thomon the fourteenth of May, we found the rebel army in a strong position behind Camp creek, occupying the forts of Resaca, and his right on some high chestnut hills to in Army I pressed against Resaca at all points. General McPherson got across Camp creek near its mouth, and made a lodgement close to the enemy's works, on hills thary, the railroad and trestle bridges; and General Thomas pressing close along Camp creek Valley, threw General Hooker's corps across the head of the creek to the main drawing out and moving rapidly by a circuit, well toward Sandtown and across Camp creek, the Army of the Cumberland below Utoy creek, General Schofield remaining in

y, formed as good an artificial obstacle against Hood as was possible. Sherman had instructed McPherson after his arrival from Snake Creek Gap, and just before the remainder of the army joined him, to work toward his right and forward, and make an effort to seize Johnston's railroad line near Resaca. To this end, during May 14th, several lively demonstrations were made by McPherson to carry out Sherman's wishes. The importance of McPherson's capture of some heights, situated between Camp Creek and the Oostanaula, cannot be doubted, for that high ground manned with our guns spoiled all Confederate transit by the railway and the wagon road bridges, and caused the Confederates to lay a new bridge of boats farther up the river. General Schofield with his Army of the Ohio, consisting of but one corps, the Twenty-third, fought near the center of our line. It was worse and worse for Schofield (Judah's division) as he pressed forward. By the help of my troops, Cox's division was
less dense, and it was rough, so that it was exceedingly hard to maneuver any considerable body of horsemen. Having now to do with cavalry, I was apprehensive of a surprise, particularly when the horses were crowded together in narrow roads; so I became quite happy and satisfied to see how Kilpatrick managed. He kept his guard so far out that all the irregularities of a cavalry bivouac did not much disturb him. Logan, as wide awake by night as by day, passed across the Utoy and on to Camp Creek, near Fairburn. Blair, who led the other column, was followed by the Sixteenth Corps. Dodge had been wounded after Ezra Chapel and was obliged to retire for a time. General Ransom, a young officer of great promise, was commanding his corps. With Kilpatrick on our right, we went into position according to our instructions. Very early on the 27th Kilpatrick drew out first and pressed on rapidly in order, if possible, to drive the enemy's outposts, scouts, and cavalry beyond the West P

the north end of the mountain by General Wheeler, in which that officer defeated Stoneman's cavalry and caused the enemy considerable loss in men and wagons. On the 14th of May, Sherman found the Confederate army in a strong position behind Camp Creek, occupying the forts at Resaca with its right on some high chestnut hills, to the north of the town. Thus ended the first stage of the campaign which changed the Confederate front from the mountains before Chattanooga to Resaca on the Oostenauended his contemplated infantry movement in order to send General Kilpatrick with 5,000 cavalry to move from Sandtown and break the West Point and Macon roads. Kilpatrick succeeded on the first road, and brushing Ross away after skirmishing at Camp creek, Red Oak, Flint river and Jonesboro, held the Macon road for five hours and did it some damage, but was soon driven away, a detachment of infantry being sent down by rail to co-operate with Jackson's cavalry, and was repulsed again at Lovejoy's
