Monday, November 21, 1864

Today we camped near the house of a man named Mann. We are about 2 days march from Milledgeville. Still no opposition. Kilpatrick successfully carried out his feint on Macon, driving the enemy into his defenses and freezing their troops as Howard passed. The only opposition has been from Wheeler’s cavalry. This column is still a threat to either Augusta or Savannah. I prefer Savannah and to leave Augusta so the enemy will be forced to garrison it when I head north. In order to stop our progress, Lee would have to detach some of his troops from Virginia. There is plenty of food, the troops are well fed and in good spirits.
