Red Oak, Georgia, Near Atlanta

I have been with Thomas all day. The troops have moved slowly forward from the Montgomery Road to the Macon Road. There is some infantry in their front, and at every meeting, they stop to entrench. Jeff Davis has got his division forward and Schofield no occupies his former position. Garrard’s cavalry screens our movements.

We are here within 3 miles of the railroad and intend to reach it tomorrow by a bold march. Howard’s corp has marched 12 miles and is within a mile of the railroad at Jonesboro. I am not receiving messages from the rear and assume that everything is in good order with Slocum at the bridge.
