Baird’s Division has crossed to Ogeechee River at Fenn’s Bridge and camped on the other side. I shifted to the Right Wing, and accompanied the Blair’s Seventeenth Corps from Tennille Station. General Howard, in person, is with the Fifteenth Corps, keeping farther to the right, and about one day’s march ahead, ready to turn against the flank of any enemy who should oppose our progress. At Barton I learned that Kilpatrick’s cavalry had reached the Augusta railroad about Waynesborough, where he ascertained that our prisoners had been removed from Millen, and therefore the purpose of rescuing them, upon which we had set our hearts, was an impossibility.
The left wing is marching toward Louisville, Georgia.
