Report of Lieutenant Colonel Willis Blanch, Fifty-seventh Indiana Infantry.

HEADQUARTERS FIFTY-SEVENTH INDIANA INFANTRY,

Near Atlanta, Ga., September 15, 1864.

SIR: I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by this regiment in the recent campaign of May, June, July, August, and September, 1864:

On its return from veteran furlough in Indiana the regiment joined the brigade at Catoosa Springs, Ga., on the 4th day of May, in command of Lieutenant-Colonel Lennard, from whence on May 7 it moved with the brigade to Tunnell Hill, which place was then in possession of the enemy, but was evacuated upon the approach of Federal troops. On May 9 we were moved with the other regiments of the brigade to the top of Rocky Face Ridge, a most rough and difficult ascension, lying to the north and west of Dalton, where at the time sight skirmishing was going on with the enemy. Near nightfall of the 9th this brigade was formed in line on the east side of the ridge, this regiment occupying a position in the front line, and with this arrangement an advance upon the enemy was ordered by Brigadier-General Wagner. Skirmishers were thrown out and line the advance was made as ordered. The enemy's position was of quite an elevation above the ground over which we were compelled to pass, being at the top of the ridge, and he was strongly fortified. When
