Kingston, Georgia

My troops have crossed the Etowah with 20 days rations. We are on the march to Dallas, Georgia in Johnston’s rear to cut his communications. This will turn the Allatoona Pass. If Johnston remains at Allatoona, I shall move on Marietta. But if he falls behind the Chattahoochee River, I will make for Sandtown and Campbellton. This will allow me to cut off communication and any retreat in the direction of Alabama.

In my rear, the gunboats on the Tennessee River are attacking the Bushwackers and burning their boats.
