ma cavalry. A few months later he raised the Fifty-third Alabama (a mounted regiment). At the head of this regiment, he served for some time in the Tennessee valley in Roddey's brigade of Forrest's cavalry command, being intimately connected with all the movements of the army of Tennessee. When Forrest went to Mississippi, in the latter part of 1863, Hannon remained with the army of Tennessee, and was placed in command of a brigade consisting of his own regiment, Young's Georgia regiment, Roswell's Georgia battalion, and the Alabama battalion of Major Snodgrass. This brigade was assigned to Kelly's division of Gen. Joseph Wheeler's cavalry corps. It was a magnificent body of horsemen (or mounted infantry, for they could fight either on horseback or on foot). During the Atlanta campaign and Sherman's march through Georgia and the Carolinas, the exploits of Wheeler's cavalry were something wonderful. Although the main army, even when successful in battle, was constantly on the ret
im for his own. The honor of his State and country called him to the field; he has fallen for her sake. May his name be ever fresh in the memory of his countrymen. He has carved a niche in the temple of fame — small it may be, still it is there and as undying as his own immortal soul itself. "Green be the grass above thee, Friend of my former days; None knew thee but to love thee Or named thee but to praise." Georgia. The following is an extract from a letter dated Roswell, Cobb county, Ga., Aug. 24: The farmers in this region, and so far as I know all through the State, are rejoicing in plentiful crops, both past and prospective. All the necessaries of life and most of the comforts (money excepted) are abundant and cheap. We oftentimes wish that our dear boys, and particularly the sick ones, in the army could share with us in the delightful grapes and other fruit with which we are now blessed. I have exhorted the country people around as to dry all
Hospital supplies for the Northwest. Editors of the Dispatch:--I wish to acknowledge, in the "Richmond Dispatch." by request, the safe arrival of a box of hospital supplies, sent from Roswell, Georgia, and designated a "family contribution." Our usual practice has been to make such acknowledgements by letters to the donors. I wish, also, to state that we have made a most satisfactory arrangement for the distribution of the supplies that come into our hands. Adjutant Henry Hoover has engaged to go out, without compensation, and at his own expense, and act as our distributing agent. He leaves to-day for Greenbrier river and Huntersville, with a load of boxes, in a wagon furnished by the Quartermaster at this place. He will remain in the mountains, passing from point to point, receiving the supplies shipped by us to him, and distributing them with his own hand, and to the most needy. Adjutant Hoover possesses the entire confidence of this and other communities in which he
From North Georgia. Atlanta, June 13 --The position of affairs in front has been unchanged for the last two days, with occasional slight skirmishing and firing on working parties. Rumors of a raid on Atlanta via Roswell reached here Saturday, and ample preparations were made to receive them. There are no signs of their appearance at this time. The weather is very cool, and it has been raining almost incessantly for the past two days. [second Dispatch.] Atlanta, June 13th. --Advices from the front state that the recent rains have made the reads almost impassable, suspending all the movements of both armies. Neither has fired a gun for two days. The Yankee train is running to Ackworth to-day, and indications of a new flank movement on the part of the Yankees has transpired. Our lines are strong, and the troops have recovered from their recent fatigues.
e was making a grand movement, from the rapidity with which his large bodies were thrown forward as they came up. He established his wagon station in the fields to the left of Big Shanty, and as the long trains of wagons arrived the men were thrown forward in three and four lines of battle, from which they were forwarded into position on our immediate front. We discerned a heavy movement far to the rear of Big Shanty, the evident intention of which was a movement toward the Canton and Roswell road, but no firing occurred in that direction. Early in the morning the enemy's wagon train apparently numbered about eight hundred wagons, and but few Yankees were in view from our signal stations. During the day they continued to increase rapidly until all the open space on the left of Big. Shanty was covered, and at sunset were estimated at over three thousand in number. An immense drove of cattle also followed close in the march of their army. About four o'clock in the evening
. A brigade of the enemy this morning attacked a small force of 100 dismounted cavalry and were compelled to retire. We captured 30 heavy rifles, a few prisoners and horses. The enemy have been feeling for our position to-day, and considerable skirmishing has taken place, mostly along the trenches in front. [Fifth Dispatch.] Chattahoochee, July 6. --There has been very little skirmishing to day. The enemy is cautiously feeling his way. They yesterday burnt the paper mills at Roswell. A Yankee Major and ten privates were brought in this evening. [Sixth Dispatch.] Chattahoochee River, July 6. --All quiet this morning. The enemy yesterday burnt the dwelling at the Junction of the Atlanta and Decatur Road. Some prisoners were brought in last evening, among them Lieut. George Scott, of the 10th Indiana. [Seventh Dispatch.] Chattahoochee River, July 7. --With the exemption of occasional skirmishing and shelling by our batteries on the east bank o
From Georgia. Atlanta, July 12. --There has been no change in the position of affairs during the last few days. The enemy are in position on the north side of the river. There is some firing between sharpshooters, with occasional artillery firing by the enemy, without damage to us. A small force is reported on this side of the river, about eight miles above the railroad bridge. They keep very close to the fort. The Governor arrived here last evening, and is urging forward everything for the defence of Atlanta. His proclamation calling on every one between the ages of sixteen and forty five, to report at Atlantis, receives the approval of all classes. [Second Dispatch.] Atlanta, July 13. --The enemy are massing on our right near Roswell. A portion of the Yankee army are on the southside of the Chattahoochee. Sherman's headquarters are near Vining's Station. Skirmishing across the river continues near the bridge.--Everything is quiet below.
wing to the temporary derangement of the money machine, caused by the resignation of Secretary Memminger, for conscience knows we had a superabundance of it before that event occurred. The enemy are also paying off a portion of their troops who were even more in arrears than our own, merely from the fact — as a Yankee colonel informed me at New Hope — that the men would be more apt to desert and straggle if they had money. The body of the enemy on the south side of the river, near Roswell, are perfectly quiet so far as is known, and have made no demonstrations that would indicate their intentions. Their cavalry on the left, however, are scattered through the counties of Cobb and Campbell, committing every species of vandalism, and literally stripping the country of everything. One brigade is at Villa Rica, and this is the largest body known to be at any one point. Notwithstanding the silence here there are indications that the great struggle which is to decide the
hoochee from the east. A little creek called Nance's runs into Peachtree just above the mouth of the latter. Farther up the Chattahoochee, and sixteen miles northeast of Atlanta, on its northern bank, and in Cobb county, is the little town of Roswell, which at present is the base of the left wing of Sherman's army.--This town is due east of Marietta. Decatur is a town, or rather the first depot on the Georgia Railroad, four miles from Atlanta and sixteen from Roswell. Stone Mountain is an Roswell. Stone Mountain is an inhibited, barren peak, several hundred feet in height, and perhaps two miles around the base, abruptly rising from the plain like one of the Pyramids of Egypt, ten miles from Decatur and sixteen miles from Atlanta. It can be seen from a long distance off, and from its summit a grand view of the country can be obtained. There is a not a tree or a shrub upon it, but presents nothing to view but rocks and rocky cliffs. It is supposed that Logan's corps of Sherman's army has now possession of t
