The conflict raged with great fierceness; and Sherman, from the top of Kenesaw, heard the roar of cannon and saw the smoke of battle, though 18 miles distant.

And so he did. He repulsed the Confederates several times; and when they heard of the approach of the 23d Corps, they hastily withdrew, leaving behind them 230 dead and 400 prisoners, with about 800 small-arms. The Nationals lost 707 men. The famous signal of Generall Sherman was subsequently made the title of one of Ira D. Sankey's most thrilling hymns, which has been sung the world over.
