No. 73. report of Col. George H. Cram, Ninth Kentucky Infantry, of operations June 26-September 8. headquarters Ninth Kentucky Infantry, Atlanta, Ga., September 14, 1864. Captain: I have the honor to present my report, from the time I rejoined the regiment. I found the regiment in camp with the brigade in front of Kenesaw Mountain, confronting the enemy. On the 25th we lay in camp. On the 26th the regiment moved with the brigade to the right, and formed in the rear and support of General Newton's division, while it made an assault on the enemy'stworks. The assault being unsuccessful we moved back to camp, by Colonel Knefier's order. Nothing unusual occurred until the night of the 2d of July, when I received orders to move, and at dark moved with the brigade about three-quarters of a mile to the left, and relieved part of Johnson's division. Our line was so close to the enemy that no pickets could be put out to cover the left of the regiment. The men were obliged to

of march in the direction of Acworth Station, where we bivouacked and remained until the morning of June 10, when we marched toward Marietta. Our movements from this to the 21st instant were very slow, the advance being made by parallels, driving the enemy from one position to another, line upon line of most formidable works marking the course of their retreat. I had 2 men killed on the 18th by solid shot from a battery that enfiladed our position. On the afternoon of the l2st, near Kenesaw Mountain, my command participated in the advance made by our brigade when we captured the enemy's rifle-pits and were thus enabled to secure a good position some half a mile to the front. Two men mortally and 4 severely wounded were the casualties in my command in this movement. We remained before Marietta performing the usual duties, confronting a vigilant enemy, making occasional demonstrations upon his lines until the 27th, when a general advance was attempted, and my command with the rest

ng the enemy left our front. On the 6th we were ordered to march in pursuit, and in the evening went into camp, where we remained until the 10th, when, after moving about two miles, we again rested until the 14th. On the 15th the enemy again abandoned their position in our front, and again we started in pursuit. We were thus constantly pushing the foe, and they intrenching and evacuating until we arrived near Marietta, where they sheltered themselves behind their works upon and about Kenesaw Mountain, we, in the mean time, losing 3 men wounded, and taking 20 prisoners, while on the skirmish line. Before the enemy were compelled to abandon their last-mentioned stronghold, we lost 1 man killed, 1 officer and 12 men wounded.

h instant, when in camp at Morris' Hill Church, near Acworth, Lieuts. Morris D. Temple and William R. Bise and twenty-eight enlisted men received orders to proceed to Chicago, Ill., to be mustered out of service by virtue of term of enlistment about to expire, leaving the battery in command of junior First Lieut. Lyman A. White. On account of the heavy rain the roads were extremely muddy, which, with very short forage, made the march, from near Dallas to the position taken in front of Kenesaw Mountain, very wearing upon our animals. During the 17th and 18th the battery was actively engaged in several positions. The section commanded by Sergt. Luman C. Lawrence rendered most efficient service from accuracy of fire, effectually silencing a rebel battery and line of skirmishers. The battery was ordered into three positions on the 19th instant, shelling the rebel lines around the base and on the side of the Kenesaw Mountain. Several shells were exploded upon its top. At 9 a. m. on th

Ellison, doing all the firing that was done. As I am only temporarily in command, in consequence of Captain Morrison being wounded, I am unable to make this report more explicit. The records of the battery show the number
