December 15. According to directions from the Major-General commanding, the division moved at four o'clock A. M., and abandoning its line of defences, relieved a portion of the troops of the Fourth army corps (Brigadier-General Wood, commanding) and Twenty-third corps, (Major-General Schofield, commanding), and held their exterior line of works-picketing also the front — from the Ackland place to a point north of Fort Negley, and commanding the approaches to the city by the Granny White, Franklin, Nolensville and Murfreesboro turnpikes. Details were furnished to support the batteries of artillery in the line, and to garrison Fort Mirton and redoubt Casino. The brigade of Lieutenant-Colonel Grosvenor (temporarily reporting to Colonel Morgan) was engaged during the day in the assault on the enemy's works near Raine's house, and was the only portion of the division in the fight. It suffered considerably in killed and wounded, and behaved creditably. The Twenty-fourth Indiana batter
well pounded by the artillery from our lines. This was the first success of the day, and it greatly exalted the enthusiasm of the troops. Our casualties were small, compared with the success. Up to this time, the Twenty-third corps, Major-General Schofield, commanding, had been held in reserve in rear of the Fourth corps and Major-General A. J. Smith's command; but shortly after the assault on Montgomery's Hill, I received a message from the commanding General of the forces, to the effect that he had ordered General Schofield to move his command to the right, to prolong General Smith's front, and directing me to move my reserves as much to the right as could be done compatibly with the safety of my own front. The order was at once obeyed by shifting the reserve brigade of each division to the right. The entire line of the corps was steadily pressed forward, and the enemy engaged throughout its whole front. The battery accompanying each division was brought to the front, and b

Subsequently communication was opened with Dodge and Blair on the left, and Hooker and Schofield on the right, were not inactive.

is right till he had severed Hood's southern railroad connections, as he had just cut the eastern, or Augusta, line. In connection with the instructions already given me for the Army of the Tennessee to move from Sherman's left to his right, Schofield had made, near the Howard House, by the help of picks and shovels, a strong left flank, for he was now to temporarily hold tenaciously Sherman's left. Logan, at a very early hour of July 27, 1864, had set in motion the three corps, Dodge's, ry respectfully, your obedient servant, O. O. Howard, Major General. There is one letter that I find in the public records which I have never seen till now. I shall prize it as I do the thanks of Congress. It is from Sherman, addressed to Schofield the evening of that memorable day. It reads: General Howard's conduct to-day had an excellent effect on his command. After the firing had ceased, he walked the line, and the men gathered about him in the most affectionate manner, and he at
rding our depots and communications on the alert, brought Schofield's troops around to and beyond my right, and had Thomas seer protecting his railroad, a vital line of supply. When Schofield and Palmer went to my right, Bate and Cleburne went to Hood's left. Without too much detour, Sherman put upon Schofield the special work of striking a heavier blow than those we heliver since Ezra chapel and directed Palmer to report to Schofield. As Palmer asserted himself as senior in rank and would general and sent to the command of the Fourteenth Corps. Schofield, though Palmer's junior, had been assigned to an army andack to fortify and hold the Chattahoochee bridge.
