Gordon Granger, with a cooperating land force, perhaps 5,000 strong, which had debarked on Dauphine island, but which could be of no service for the present; and did not ason, commanding there, next morning sued for conditions. He night probably have held out a little longer; but, being on an island, with the fleet on one side and Granger's army on tile other, there was not a possibility of relief or protracted resistance. At 9 3/4 A. M., the Stars and Stripes were raised over the fort, and Anders and his representations doubtless did much to excite the clamor raised against that officer throughout Dixie as a coward or a traitor. But when his turn came — Granger's troops having been promptly transferred to the rear of Morgan, invested Aug. 9. it, and, after due preparation, opened fire Aug. 22. in conjunction with t

Granger's march around Don Secours bay and up to Mobile was impeded by pouring rains and heavy roads; so that Smith's corps, worts and thus moved up and across the bay to their appointed rendezvous near Fish river, arrived first; March 21. but Granger's corps came up in the course of the two following days; and the joint advance on Mobile was resumed on the 25th. It wassed with great ardor, and with considerable loss from Rebel shells. On the morning of the 30th, Veatch's division of Gen. Granger's corps, while relieving guard, blundered into the Rebel lines, and were regarded as the head of an assaulting column;

The command of the Fourth Corps was given to General Gordon Granger, the man who marched his division to Chickamauga with no other orders or direction than the sound of the enemy's cannon. The three divisions of this new corps were placed under the commands of Generals Palmer, Sheridan, and Wood. Soon aftained considerable loss. They were also engaged at Cane River, and at Cloutiersville, La. The corps organization was discontinued, June 11, 1864, and the troops transferred to other commands. It was reorganized, Feb. 18, 165, and Major-General Gordon Granger, of Chickamauga fame, was placed in command; the divisions were commanded by Generals Veatch, Andrews, and Benton.

The Ninety-eighth moved into Tennessee and was stationed successively at Franklin, Shelbyville, and Wartrace during the spring and summer of 1863, after which it joined in Rosecrans's advance to Chickamauga, having been assigned to Steedman's Division of Gordon Granger's Reserve Corps. Its casualty list at Chickamauga showed 9 killed, 41 wounded, and 13 missing, out of 201 present for action. Upon the reorganization of the Army of the Cumberland, in October, 1863, the regiment was placed in the Second Brigade, Second Division, Fourteenth Corps, in which it served until mustered out.

It distinguished itself at Chickamauga, where it fought in Steedman's Division of General Gordon Granger's Reserve Corps, holding its ground sturdily in the face of Longstreet's veterans, and retiring from the field only when darkness had terminated the conflict. Lieutenant-Colonel Clarke was killed in this battle, the total loss of the regeeded by Colonel John B. Yates. Many of the Michigan regiments went to the front in 1861 with Colonels who afterwards were numbered among the most distinguished generals of the war.
