Inscription. Grant established his headquarters here on May 10, remaining two days. On May 11, Tuttle's and Steele's divisions of the XV Corps passed through Cayuga and the XIII Corps camps at Fivemile Creek to Auburn, three and a half miles northeast. Lacking water, the XVII Corps marched only one and half miles from Weeks Farm to the Roach Farm. Grant pressed McPherson to move into Raymond advising that "we must fight the enemy before our rations fail," and notified Washington that he would no longer be in communication.
