Kingston, Georgia

The trains are bringing plenty of supplies into Kingston and Rome. I have asked McPherson’s to send a brigade to guard the city and the fortifications and destroy any manufacture that may be useful to the enemy. Davis can return with his division to Thomas. When Blair arrives, I will place him in Rome.

Johnston is across the Etowah and probably at Altoona Pass, a position that would be difficult to attack. I will leave the railroad with 20 days supply in the wagons and head southwest to cut off Johnston’s communications to Atlanta.
