Lookout creek was near the extreme right of Grant's line, and west of Lookout mountain; about half a mile east of the mountain, runs Chattanooga creek; then, Citico creek, some two miles further east; and, away at the northern end of Missionary ridge, the South Chickamauga. Still north and east of this, but on the north side ofy under the eye of Grant. and Wood's, were accordingly formed in front of Fort Wood, Sheridan on the right, Wood on the left, with his left extending nearly to Citico creek. The formation was complete by two P. M. At an early hour, the heavy guns in Fort Wood and the smaller works, began to wake the echoes of the valley; the nce of the movements of Sherman. Thomas, therefore, simply bettered and strengthened his position during Tuesday, and pushed the Eleventh corps forward, across Citico creek, and along the south bank of the Tennessee. Howard had some fighting, but none of a serious character; and, before night, he connected Sherman's new position

by a plateau somewhat higher, and on the north by the course of Citico Creek. Strong lunettes established on the heights overlooking the citt resting against the slopes of Brushy Hill, with the left along Citico Creek near its mouth. On the previous day a bridge had been thrown acn slopes; it extends to the northward beyond Indian Hill, passes Citico Creek, and comes down back of the right bank of that stream. A part ope of the hill. Meantime, Howard advances up the left bank of Citico Creek to cover the flank of Wood's forces on the north of Indian Hill.n Hill had rudely dispelled them. The movements of Howard along Citico Creek and the bridge thrown across that stream made Bragg feel uneasy lf these communications, caused Schurz's division to pass beyond Citico Creek, and, taking with him Buschbeck's brigade, ascended the left banand that the Fifteenth corps would soon reach the head-waters of Citico Creek. He is so engrossed with his plan, in accordance with which the

Thomas, having done on the 23d, with his troops in Chattanooga what was intended for the 24th, battered and strengthened his advance positions during the day, and pushed the Eleventh corps forward along the south bank of the Tennessee river, across Citico creek, one brigade of which, with Howard in person, reached Sherman just as he had completed the crossing of the river. When Hooker emerged in sight of the northern extremity of Lookout Mountain, Carlin's brigade, of the Fourteenth corps, was ordered to cross Chattanooga creek and form a junction with him. This was effected late in the evening and after considerable fighting. This was the night of the 24th and the forces maintained an unbroken line, with open communications from the north
