Reported to General Brannon, and was ordered by him to report for duty to Colonel Van Derveer, whose brigade was in the advance, skirmishing with the enemy. Remained with the advance until dark, and was then ordered to fall back and go into camp. Remained in camp until the morning of the 1st of July, when Major Rodgers assumed command. We accompanied General Brannon's division to Tullahoma, and to Elk River on the 2nd instant. Remained in camp on the 3rd. Lieutenant Colonel O. P.
