General Howard had previously by my direction sent one of his best scouts down the Ogeechee in a canoe for a like purpose.
During the night we came to the railroad bridge across the Ogeechee.
Sherman did cross the Ogeechee River without having to fight.
I think the force on the right bank of Ogeechee must be small.
The Ogeechee River ran within a couple of hundred yards from the house.
Soon a gentleman is going out towards the Ogeechee to report numbers and condition there.
Our plan proved to be a successful one, and thus we forded the Ogeechee river without the least accident.
We also held the country to the south and west of the Ogeechee as foraging ground.
On arriving at the Ogeechee river at Summertown I found that it had deborted its banks and was at least a quarter of a mile wide.
She proved to be the Dandelion, a tender of the regular gunboat Flag, posted at the mouth of the Ogeechee.
