on the road. Passing many large farms, with good fields of corn, wheat, and oats, we reached Talladega (sixteen miles) about ten o'clock. Here we struck a railroad extending from Selma in a northeaended to connect with Rome, Georgia, but only completed to Blue Mountain, a few miles north of Talladega. The road has no special importance in reference to present military operations. A small rebel force left Talladega a few hours before our approch, and moved down the railroad to the bridge over the Coosa river, our coming having been heard of, and the destruction of that bridge being suppo-night, the command passed the little village of Syllacauga, and halted twenty-five miles from Talladega, unannoyed by the rebels, who were, no doubt, busily at work fortifying themselves at the bridStowe's ferry, and General Rousseau decided upon crossing at that point. The night march from Talladega, and the pressing forward during the day, had prevented news of our approach getting much ahea
hnston's army from that source of supply and reinforcement. General Rousseau, commanding the District of Tennessee, asked permission to command the expedition, and received it. As soon as Johnston was well across the Chattahoochee, and as I had begun to maneuvre on Atlanta, I gave the requisite notice, and General Rousseau started punctually on the tenth of July. He fulfilled his orders and instructions to the very letter, whipping the rebel General Clanton en route ; he passed through Talladega, and reached the railroad on the sixteenth, about twenty-five miles west of Opelika, and broke it well up to that place. Also three miles of the branch toward Columbus, and two toward West Point. He then turned north, and brought his command safely to Marietta, arriving on the twenty-third having sustained a trifling loss — not to exceed thirty men. The main armies remained quiet in their camps on the Chattahoochee until the sixteenth of July, but the time was employed in collecting
, crossed the Coosa at Truss and Collins' ferries, and marched to Talladega. Near this place he met and scattered a force of rebels under Gerom Atlanta to Eufaula, as well as at Columbus and West Point and Talladega. By these means I confidently expected to arrest all large parti; twentieth, moved via Trussville and Cedar Grove, and arrived at Talladega on the twenty-second. On the twenty-third moved to Munford's Stahat we were going that way. April twenty-first. Moved towards Talladega, sending the Fourth Kentucky mounted infantry ahead before daybre-second. By noon the command had crossed, and at sundown reached Talladega, driving out a force of about seventy rebels, and encamping at th April twenty-third. Learning that Hill's brigade was between Talladega and Blue Mountain, I moved in that direction, finding him in posioved thence to Hanby's mill, on Black Warrior, crossed Coosa near Talladega, fought and dispersed Hill's forces between there and Blue Mounta
