This was accomplished before ten o'clock the same day on which Fort McAllister fell. December 16.

Colonel Atkins, with upward of two thousand (2000) men of my command, moved in conjunction with a division of infantry, under General Mower, to destroy a portion of the Gulf Railroad, and, if possible, the railroad over the Altamaha. Difficulty of approaches and a strong force of the enemy, which could not be dislodged, prevented the accomplishment of the latter. The railroad, ho

In the following days the city arms and ammunition of New York were secured; and volunteer companies paraded in the streets. Small cannon were hauled from the city to Kingsbridge; churchmen as well as presbyterians, without regard to creeds, took up arms.
