During the night of the 15th the enemy evacuated his position in our front and the regiment was moved next day to the village of Resaca, where we bivouacked for the night. On the morning of the 17th we resumed our march after the retreating foe across the Oostenaula River, through Calhoun and Adairsville, reaching Kingston in the afternoon of the 19th, and bivouacked a few miles south of that point (after burning the saltpeter works) until the morning of the 23d, when the regiment stripped for battle, crossed the Etowah, and by easy marches reached the Allatoona hills near Dallas on the evening of the 26th. A portion of the Fourth Corps being hotly engaged on the 27th, the brigade was sent to its support, but night putting a stop to the fight, the regiment was not brought into action.

Our skirmishers remained in this last position, the regiment in its main works, until the night of the 26th August, when we moved with the main body of the army and bivouacked on the Atlanta and Montgomery Railroad on the evening of the 29th. Next day we skirmished with the enemy, while the Second and Third Brigades were destroying that road. From the morning of the 30th until the evening of the 2d of September the regiment accompanied the brigade as guards to the Fourteenth Army Corps train, when we reached Jonesborough, Ga., and heard of the fall of Atlanta. The losses of the regiment from the 7th of May to the 2d of September, 1864, inclusive, are as follows: Killed, officers, 1; men, 5. Wounded, officers, 6; men, 46. Missing, men, 3. Total, 61.

After a short march the regiment was drawn up in line of battle and advanced in that order, skirmishing with the enemy until the evening of the 8th, when the brigade arrived in front of Buzzard Roost. In the afternoon of the 9th the Fifteenth, in connection with the Forty-second Indiana, was ordered to ascend the western slope of Rocky Face Ridge to reconnoiter the enemy's position, and, if possible, discover a vulnerable point in his lines. After advancing a strong skirmish line, supported by the balance of the regiment, to the summit of the slope, a perpendicular wall of solid rock at least 100 feet high confronted us, from the top of which the enemy fired on our line, and, finding his fire unavailing, hurled down huge rocks on the skirmishers. Finding no assailable point directly in front, the line moved by the right flank
