But time will place all these things in their true light. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, H. W. Halleck. General Franklin to General Halleck. York, Penn., May 27, 1863. To Major-General H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief U. S. Army, Washington, D. C.: General: I have received your letter of the twenty-fifth inst. I am sure, from your statement, that General Burnside did not make the formal and earnest request to remove the Secretary of War and yourself, to which reference is made in my pamphlet reply to the Committee on the Conduct of the War, and my assertion should have been that General Burnside said that he made the request. The facts are these. General Burnside was in Washington on or about January first, last. He returned to camp, and soon after his return, informed me, I think in th
Doc. 19.-attempt to destroy the Albemarle. Captain M. Smith's report. United States steamer Mattabesett, Albemarle Sound, N. C., May 30, 1864. Sir: I have to report that an effort was made on the twenty-fifth instant, at eleven o'clock P. M., by five volunteers from the steamer Wyalusing, to destroy the iron-clad Albemarle. The party left at two o'clock P. M. on the twenty-fifth instant, (having made a reconnoissance two days before,) and ascended the Middle River in the Mattabetwenty-fifth instant, (having made a reconnoissance two days before,) and ascended the Middle River in the Mattabesett's dingey, with two torpedoes, (each containing one hundred pounds of powder,) and their appendages, which they transported on a stretcher across the island swamps. Charles Baldwin, coal-heaver, and John W. Lloyd, coxswain, then swam the Roanoke River, with a line, and hauled the torpedoes over to the Plymouth shore, above the town. They were then connected by a bridle, floated down with the current, and guided by Charles Baldwin, who designed to place them across the bow of the ram--one o
fighting, and since ten o'clock in the morning without water. The General was just ready to leave camp with the other forces, but the exhausted condition of the men and cavalry horses that had been out all night, precluded the march that day. This unfortunate mistake delayed the pursuit two days, for it required the next day's march, the twenty-sixth, to reach the point of the cavalry fight on the night of the twenty-fourth. The battle of dead Buffalo Lake. Camp was moved on the twenty-fifth, three miles, on to the great hill, where a pond of fresh water and grass were found. Lieutenant Freeman's and Murphy's and Starr's bodies were buried at Camp Sidney, below the hill. Doctor Weiser's was buried at Camp Whitney, on the hill. The march was resumed on the twenty-sixth, and Dead Buffalo Lake reached about noon. The Indians were seen in the distance advancing towards us. It was not known that there was any good camping-place within reach that day ahead, and it was decided

The part of it assaulted by my division the afternoon of the twenty-fifth, is about four miles from Chattanooga, and about a mile from Orchard Knob. Between the latter and the base of Mission Ridge there is a broad; wooded valley. cers, would extend this report beyond all reasonable compass. After the rout of the enemy by the successful assault on Mission Ridge on the afternoon of the twenty-fifth, as shown by the reports of the brigade commanders, were as follows: General Willich, commanding First brigade, reports the capture of five pieces of artilleryhem to commemorate their names in an official report. Colonel Berry, commanding Fifth Kentucky, displayed conspicuous gallantry on the twenty-third and on the twenty-fifth. He was slightly wounded on both days. Colonel Wiley, commanding Forty-first Ohio, rendered signal service on both days, and displayed high courage. In the
m, and holding position there until the arrival of Kershaw's brigade. My command was kept in line of battle during the night at Silrey's Ford, on the Tennessee River. On Wednesday twenty-third, with McDonald's battalion, I gained the point of Lookout Mountain. My troops, being gradually relieved by infantry, were ordered to the rear, and went into camp at and near Bird's Mills, with orders issued to cook up rations and shoe the horses as rapidly as possible. On Friday morning, the twenty-fifth, I received orders to move with my entire command to meet the forces of Burnside at or near Harrison, which order was immediately obeyed. Having proceeded as far as Chattanooga Station, a second courier came up with an order to proceed via Cleveland to Charleston and disperse the enemy at that place, and, if necessary, to cross the-----River. I reached Cleveland that night, and went to Charleston next morning; found the enemy on the opposite side of the river. I moved up my artillery,
been made for this violation of the flag. A satisfactory explanation having been offered and accepted, an interview was had between General Hagood and General Vogdes, which terminated in arrangement to exchange the wounded prisoners on both sides, and ten o'clock on the following Friday was appointed as the hour, when the transports from each party should effect the exchange at the point from which the fleet have usually conducted the attack upon Battery Wagner. On the morning of the twenty-fifth, the day upon which the exchange was to be effected, the enemy opened fire about day-light both from the fleet and land batteries. This fire was vigorously sustained until the arrival, about ten o'clock, of the flag of truce boat, conveying the prisoners, and for a portion of that time was equal in intensity to the bombardment of the eighteenth. Upon the arrival of the boat in the neighborhood of the place appointed, the firing ceased, and the exchange was regularly effected, we deliver
back to that place, and forcing the return from Corinth of one division (Ross's) which had been sent there to strengthen Grant's army. General Price, in obedience to his orders, marched in the direction of Iuka, to cross the Tennessee, but was not long in discovering that Rosecrans had not crossed that stream. This officer, in connection with Grant, attacked him on the nineteenth day of September, and compelled him to fall back towards Baldwin, on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. On the twenty-fifth day of the same month I received a despatch, by courier, from General Price, stating that he was at Baldwin, and was then ready to join me with his forces in an attack on Corinth, as had been previously suggested by me. We met at Ripley, on the twenty-eighth of September, according to agreement, and marched the next morning towards Pocahontas, which place we reached on the first of October. From all the information I could obtain, the following was the situation of the Federal army at th
was untrue, I immediately countermanded the orders, giving instructions that they should be held until further notice, but before either could reach Madisonville it was reported that the whole command was already at Covington. I advised Captain Poindexter to make his way to Mobile with his armed steamers, but he concluded to destroy them. We, however, procured from them some of the guns and ordnance stores, which I ordered immediately to Vicksburg, to be put in position there. On the twenty-fifth, Captain Bailey, of the Federal Navy, demanded the surrender of the city, and that the flags should be taken down, and the United States flag put up on the mint, custom-house, and other public buildings. To this demand I returned an unqualified refusal, declaring that I would not surrender the city or any portion of my command, but added, that feeling unwilling to subject the city to bombardment, and recognizing the utter impossibility of removing the women and children, I should withdra
, both for offensive and defensive, to assemble our troops here immediately. This was not noticed. Therefore, on the twenty-fifth, I again urged the necessity of reinforcing the Army of Tennessee, because the enemy was collecting a larger force thao Atlanta, a few miles south of Dallas, and Hood's four miles from New Hope Church, on the road from Alatoona. On the twenty-fifth the enemy was found to be intrenched near and east of Dallas. Hood's corps was placed with its centre at New Hope Chuted--six hundred. We therefore estimated their whole loss at three thousand at least. It was probably greater on the twenty-fifth, as we had a larger force engaged then, both of infantry and artillery. The usual skirmishing was kept up on the twery. In the twenty-fourth Hardee's skirmishers repulsed a line of battle, as did Stevenson's, of Hood's corps, on the twenty-fifth. On the twenty-seventh, after a furious cannonade of several hours, the enemy made a general advance, but was every
