on the fourteenth, and reported to General Schofield by direct order of General Thomas. To show more fully the object of the movement of my division, I transmit herewith orders and telegrams from Major-Generals Thomas and Rousseau, marked A to Zzz, also my report by telegraph numbered from 1 to Zzz.

. We continued our march with the main column each day, nothing worthy of note occurring, until November twentieth, when a small party of rebel cavalry made a dash on our rear, capturing some eight stragglers, three of them being members of this regiment. 22d. Reached Milledgeville, the capital of the State. 23d. At work all day destroying the Gordon and Milledgeville Railroad, the regiment tearing up about two and one half miles of track. Moved with the main column until the twenty-Zzz, when we were again at work on the railroad, tearing up about a mile of track and destroying four large warehouses at Tennille Station, on the Macon road. 28th. Again at work destroying railroad. 29th. At work on the railroad all day, reaching a point near the Ogeechee River. We left the railroad here and joined the main column. Nothing of importance occurred until December ninth. The regiment, having the advance of the corps, came upon a small body of rebel infantry, with one piec
bed, but as soon as the order was given to move forward he got up, and gallantly led his regiment, though laboring under the effects of disease. On Friday morning, the enemy having evacuated the place attacked the evening before by my brigade, I commenced the march, as ordered by you, deployed in line of battle in the edge of the woodland north of the Mechanicsville road, between the village and the river. Soon I received orders to fall in, the column proceeding down the road, and placed Zzz, brigade in the position assigned it, next to the Second brigade, Brigadier-General Gregg's. Captain McIntosh's battery, attached to my brigade, having exhausted its ammunition, and one piece being disabled, was left behind, to renew its supply and repair damages; and I ordered up Captain Greenlee Davidson's battery, (Letcher artillery,) from the other side of the Chickahominy. It was, however, so late in the day before that gallant and active officer received my order, that it was not in hi

Major Thurston, Third North Carolina, received a painful contusion, but did not leave the field. Lieutenant-Colonel Ruffin, Thirteenth North Carolina, remained with his regiment on South Mountain, after receiving three painful wounds. Lieutenant-Colonel Betts, Thirteenth Alabama, was slightly wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel Zachry, Twenty-seventh Georgia, had just recovered from a severe wound received before Richmond, to receive a more serious one at Sharpsburg. Lieutenant-Colonel Best and Major Huggins, Twenty-third Georgia, gallant and meritorious officers, were severely wounded at Sharpsburg. It becomes my grateful task to speak in the highest terms of my brigade commanders, two of whom sealed their devotion to their country with their lives. Major Ratchford, Major Pierson, chief of artillery, and L
d was in better condition when it arrived in Savannah, than when it left Atlanta. Before closing this report, I desire to tender my thanks to Lieutenant-Colonel Moore and Major Downey, each of whom ably commanded detachments of the regiment, displaying a degree of energy and perseverance entitling them to special notice. Captains James W. Smith and C. C. Whiting rendered very important services in their positions as commanders of pontoon sections. Captain Wood Tousey, Commissary; Lieutenant Zach. Jones, Aid-de-Camp; Lieutenant Horace Hall, Aid-de-Camp; and Lieutenant Henry Torrence, Acting Assistant Quartermaster, deserve credit for their energy and promptness. In conclusion, I would state that great credit is due the officers and men of the regiment, for the manner in which they conducted themselves throughout the entire campaign; although, many times, after a hard day's march, they have had bridges to build or roads to repair, they were always on hand. Praise is likewi

. I have heard of the deaths of Captain Owens, Sergeant Franks, and Albert Boyce, and I greatly fear that others have and that many will still die. The honored and lamented dead have laid down their lives in a just cause — defending their country from invasion, and their homes from pollution. They died gallantly. Their names will be embalmed in history as martyrs of liberty, and added to the long roll of Carolina's heroes. I have been greatly indebted to Surgeon Hunt, and Assistant-Surgeon Youngblood, and their assistants, for their indefatigable attention to the numerous wounded. Hoping that the General will be satisfied with the conduct of the regiment, I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. Mcgowan, Colonel Fourteenth Regiment S. C. Vols.
