    I reconnoitred the whole country, from Haines's Bluff to the railroad bridge, and posted the troops thus: Parke's two divisions from Haines's Bluff out to the Benton or ridge road; Tuttle's division, of my corps, joining on and extending to a plantation called Young's, overlooking Bear Creek valley, which empties into the Big Black above Messinger's Ferry; then McArthurs division, of McPherson's corps, took up the line, and reached to Osterhaus's division of McClernand's corps, which held a strong fortified position at the railroad-crossing of the Big Black River. Palmer and Haskell, so I felt that, while Fremont might be suspicious of others, he allowed free ingress to his old California acquaintances. Sixth, I did enjoy this read. General Grant's orders for the general movement past Vicksburg, by Richmond and Carthage, were dated April 20, Our defeat would be disastrous to the nation; and to expect of new men, who never bore arms, to do miracles, is not right. Second Brigade General T.

    General Ord accused the commander General Lauman of having disregarded his orders, and attributed to him personally the disaster and heavy loss of men. Porter's manner to McClernand was so curt that I invited him out into a forward-cabin where he had his charts, and asked him what he meant by it. I have just heard from him, that he had sent forward General Schoepf with Colonel Wolford's cavalry, Colonel Steadman's Ohio regiment, and a battery of artillery, followed on a succeeding day by a Tennessee brigade. I have the Nashville Railroad guarded by three regiments, yet it is far from being safe; and, the moment actual hostilities commence, these roads will be interrupted, and we will be in a dilemma. The general added that he had views which he would be happy to submit for the consideration of the Secretary. Far from being a dry account of a man's recollections, this is a very engaging and very worthwhile autobiography, and any student of the war will profit by reading it.

    On the 3d of July, as I sat at my bivouac by the road-side near Trible's, I saw a poor, miserable horse, carrying a lady, and led by a little negro boy, coming across a cotton-field toward me; as they approached I recognized poor Mrs. When I appealed to regiments to stand fast, although out of cartridges, I did so because, to retire a regiment for any cause, has a bad effect on others. I told him we had no intention to burn it, or any other house, except the machine-shops, and such buildings as could easily be converted to hostile uses. This attack failed; and I have always felt that it was due to the failure of General G. General Steele's men reached the road which led from Vicksburg up to Haines's Bluff, which road lay at the foot of the hills, and intercepted some prisoners and wagons which were coming down from Haines's Bluff.

The general added that he had views which he would be happy to submit for the consideration of the Secretary. Louis so long, it was important he should hurry on to Washington. They went to the barn, and there found a handsome city hearse, with pall and plumes. It would be facile for them to carry the war thence into the loyal States north of the river.

Each of them won the battle. What is now offered is not designed as a history of the war, or even as a complete account of all the incidents in which the writer bore a part, but merely his recollection of events, corrected by a reference to his own memoranda, which may assist the future historian when he comes to describe the whole, and account for the motives and reasons which influenced some of the actors in the grand drama of war.

I judged that he was falling back. By his orders, we counter-marched, recrossed the swamp, and hurried forward to overtake Stuart, marching for Fort Hindman.

All these detachments weaken the main force, and endanger the whole. Cameron was not well, and lay on my bed, but joined in the general conversation. Cameron ordered him to divert these to Louisville, and Thomas made the telegraphic orders on the spot.

The next day the prisoners were all collected on their boats, lists were made out, and orders given for their transportation to St. Smith's division, not so much by way of a direct attack as a diversion and threat.

I inclose you the copy of an intercepted letter, which is but the type of others. Buckner, Hardee, Sidney Johnston, Folk, and Pillow, the two former in immediate command, the force as large as they want or can subsist, from twenty-five to thirty thousand.

Cameron called to me, "Now, General Sherman, tell us of your troubles. Already the gunboats have secured the Yazoo up for twenty-three miles, to a fort on the Yazoo at Haines's Bluff, giving us a choice for a landing-place at some point up the Yazoo below this fort, or on the island which lies between Vicksburg and the present mouth of the Yazoo.

This was unfair, for I know that the admiral led his fleet in person in the river-attack, and that his guns silenced those of Fort Hindman, and drove the gunners into the ditch. Many of the rebel families expected Buckner to reach Louisville at any moment.Dec 15,  · The Memoirs Of General W.
