II. The Second Division, Brigadier-General Hazen commanding, having the advance of the right column, will leave his present camp at Summerville at 7 a. m., taking the old Savannah road and marching on it to the intersection of the Jones' Ferry road leading to Station Numbers 8, about six miles southwest of the cross-roads, to which the left column is ordered. The Third Division, Brigadier-General Smith commanding, will follow the Second Division to same destination. If the conformation of the roads is such as to admit of two columns marching abreast, Generals Corse and Smith may take a parallel route to the divisions in advance, leaving, however, the right of the roads to Generals Woods and Hazen, respectively.
