December 27. Having constructed the trestles, and secured the plank necessary to bridge a lagoon on the south side of the Tennessee River the night previous, I moved a portion of my command with the transports, convoyed by the gunboats down the river to a point three miles above Decatur, where a landing was effected, the lagoon rapidly bridged, the troops crossed, and pushed out in the direction of Decatur. The enemy attempted to check the crossing of the troops with artillery, which he posted within half a mile of where we were crossing the lageon, but my advance, having crossed before this artillery opened, was rapidly pushed out, and drove it off. At three o'clock P. M. the whole of my infantry had crossed, and at seven o'clock P. M. was in possession of Decatur.
