The passage of Peach Tree creek may not have given an opportunity to attack; bg a line of breastworks as that on the side of Peach Tree creek, which embraced the front of General Sherman'scussion of this character.

Thus the proximity of these prisoners to Sherman's Army not only forced me to remain in a position to guard the country against the fearful calamity aforementioned, but also thwarted my design to move north, across Peach Tree creek and the Chattahoochee, back to Marietta, where I would have destroyed the enemy's communications and supplies, and then have taken position near the Alabama line, with the Blue Mountain Railroad in rear, by which means the Confederate Army c
