On the twenty-third of March, Major-General Steele left Little Rock with the Seventh Army Corps to cooperate with General Banks' expedition on Red river, and reached Arkadelphia on the twenty-eighth.

Although out of place as to time, I here invite all military critics who study the problems of war to take their maps and compare the position of my army on the fifteenth and sixteenth of April, with that of General Halleck about Burksville and Petersburg, Virginia, on the twenty-sixth of April, when, according to his telegram to Secretary Stanton, he offered to relieve me of the task of cutting off Johnston's retreat.
