Starting on the 16th, reached Kingston on the 19th, and remained until the 23d, when we moved in the direction of Dallas, passing through that town on the evening of the 26th. An advance of a mile was made on the 27th, driving the enemy's skirmishers; the point taken was intrenched and held until June 1. On that day we withdrew from the line, crossing Pumpkin Vine Creek. Marched to Acworth on the 6th, staying there until the 10th, when we moved to Big Shanty. 11th, marched down the railroad to within three miles of Kenesaw Mountain, where we remained until the 19th, when, the enemy having left the works in our front, we advanced to the
