Savannah, Georgia

Having received approval for a march through South Carolina by land, I immediately sent orders that would begin the movement of the right wing of my army The Seventeenth Corp with some troops already at Thunderbolt and others nearby were ordered to gather at Thunderbolt and await steamers that would take them to Beaufort, South Carolina.

The lead of Twentieth Corp is now across the Savannah River and occupies Fort Hardee. The Steamer Planter, which was brought into our lines by the slave who operated it is now being used to ferry troops across.
