BIG SHANTY, GA., June 12, 1864 – 10 p. m.
Major T. T. ECKERT:
Has rained steadily all day; is raining still. Some skirmishing in front of center and left, and just at night quite heavy fire of small-arms heard in direction of Garrard’s position or extreme left of advance, of which no report is yet received. Whole country so softened by rains that artillery can’t be moved, even in roads. Railroad all right yet; but high wind may make is trouble.
