The Fourteenth joined General Sherman's army at Dallas,
Ga., the 4th of June, and took an active part in the Atlanta
campaign, being engaged with the enemy at Kenesaw Mountain and
Chattahoochee river and the siege of Atlanta.
When General Sherman made his flanking movement around
Atlanta, the Fourteenth distinguished itself by a brilliant
charge at Jonesboro, breaking the enemy's line, and was the
first troops to get possession of the confederate works. In
this charge the Fourteenth captured General Govan, of Cleburn's
division, and his staff, four pieces of artillery, the colors
of the First Arkansas, and 300 men.
