We now hold the key to Charleston, Augusta, Columbia,
and can move upon either point. The health of the army is good.
There are but thirty-four sick, and two wounded men in the Third
Division hospital. Only forty-eight sick and wounded men were
sent away. How long we will remain at Savannah, or where we will
go, will be learned in time.
On the 11th of January the three years of the organization
of the Seventy-Eighth will expire, and then some of the officers
and the non-veteran soldiers will go home.
