On the 1st of June, having been relieved by the Fifteenth Corps, General Hooker's command proceeded to a position about five miles from Acworth and upon the right flank of the enemy. It having been ascertained that the enemy had retreated, the troops were put in motion, and, after driving the enemy from several lines of rifle-pits, arrived at a position near Kenesaw Mountain. During a series of skirmishers the Thirty-third lost 4 wounded; among these First Lieutenant H. P. Marston, wounded June 16. June 22, the Thirty-third Massachusetts was deployed as skirmishers, covering the front of the Third Brigade, and, chagrin the enemy's works, took possession of a hill on the left of the Second Division, the regiment losing 25 in killed, wounded, and missing. Captain C. E. Graves, of Company K, was wounded in the foot. The enemy having again abandoned their lines of intrenchments, pursuit was resumed on the 3rd day of July; moved a few lines daily until the 6th of July, when we encamped about three miles back from the Chattahoochee River. Remained in this position until the 6th of July, when we encamped about three miles back from the Chattahoochee River. Remained in this position until July 17, when the Thirty-third was detailed as division train guard.

September 5, the Thirty-third was relieved from this duty and ordered to report to General Slocum, in Atlanta. The regiment is at present on duty in Atlanta guarding prisoners of war.
