Reports of Brigadier General William T. Ward, U. S. Army, commanding First Brigade, of operations May 13, 19, and 25.

HDQRS. FIRST Brigadier, THIRD DIV., TWENTIETH CORPS,

In the Field, near Dallas, ga., June 2, 1864.

SIR: In obedience to orders from division headquarters, I sent you a report of operations from the 13th to the 19th of May, 1864, inclusive.

On the 13th my brigade marched from Snake Creek Gap to take position on the left of the Fifteenth Army Corps. The brigade reached the left of said corps about 1 p. m., and was formed in line of battle, the Seventieth Indiana, One hundred and second Illinois, and Seventy-ninth Ohio Volunteers Infantry forming first line, the One hundred and twenty-ninth and One hundred and fifth Illinois forming second line. The brigade remained in this position,near the road leading to Resaca, until I was ordered to advance, which was done, and the brigade formed in battalions en masse in an open field in the rear of General Harrow's command. From this place I was ordered, about dark, to move to the left and relive General King's brigade, of the Fourteenth Army Corps. My brigade relieved General King's, and was placed on the line occupied by his troops, three regiments in the front and two in the rear line. I threw out a strong force of skirmishers in front line and remained in this position (the skirmishers occupying the woods at the foot of the hill on which the first line was formed) until about 10 a. m. on the 14th, when I was ordered to advance my line skirmishers. The line was advanced through an open field, exposed to a destructive fire from the enemy's skirmishers and sharpshooters. During the day the enemy unmasked two guns immediately in front of that part of the first line occupied by the Seventieth Indiana and
