the twenty-second April, I sent another, requesting permission to publish the first one, for the reasons set forth therein (copy sent herewith). On the second May, I telegraphed Colonel Bowers, Adjutant-General, to ascertain if these had been received, and he answered, they were received, the latter during General Grant's absence. Orders have been sent you (me) to report here, when you can see the General. On May third, I received by telegraph an extract from General Orders No. 78, of May first, assigning me to the command of the Department of the Mississippi I at once proceeded to Washington, and, after a personal interview with General Grant, received, on the sixth of May, an answer to my communications of the ninth and twenty-second April, authorizing my publishing them, and stating the reasons for not granting me the investigation sought. A copy of this letter is herewith sent. Having thus exhausted my means of getting at the cause of my being relieved by General Sheridan
le to add to this clear and full report of recent operations in this quarter, submitted by the commanding General of this district, whose disposition of troops and general conduct of the responsible duties intrusted to him, I beg to commend to the special notice of his Excellency the President. In connection, however, with this relation of events, between the ninth and nineteenth ultimo, I beg to call attention to my letters to the Secretary of War, of the tenth May and twentieth July, and one to General Cooper, Adjutant and Inspector-General, dated June fifteenth, as containing information essential for a proper knowledge of the situation. I beg leave also to express my high appreciation of the gallant conduct of the officers and men engaged, especially those mentioned by Brigadier-Generals Ripley and Taliaferro, and by subordinate commanders. The conduct of Brigadier-General Taliaferro during the operations of the eighteenth of July, and the assault on Battery Wagner that n
P. M., on the thirtieth, Brigadier-General Baldwin, with his brigade of Smith's division, had crossed the Big Black at Hankinson's Ferry. At nine o'clock A. M., May first, General Bowen informed me, by telegraph — his army being then in position three miles south of Port Gibson — that General Baldwin was entering the latter placeattack Grand Gulf with a view to Vicksburg. He also reported heavy firing at Grand Gulf. The enemy is shelling our batteries, both above and below. On the first of May he telegraphed: A furious battle has been going on since daylight, just below Port Hudson. * * * The enemy can cross all his army from Hard Times to Bruinsburg prospect of success, a rapid concentration of all the forces should have been made, and an attack. Under this conviction, I telegraphed to General Pemberton on May first, from Tullahoma: If Grant's army lands on this side of the river, the safety of Mississippi depends on beating it. For that object you should unite your whole fo
few days after Brigadier-General Pendleton arrived from Richmond to explain to me the President's wishes on that subject. I explained to him the modification of the plan communicated by General Bragg, which seemed to me essential — which required that the intended reinforcements should be sent to Dalton. I urged that this should be done without delay — because our present force was not sufficient even for defence — and to enable us to take the offensive, if the enemy did not. On the first of May I reported the enemy about to advance. On the second, Brigadier-General Mercer's command arrived, about 1,400 effective infantry. On the fourth I expressed myself satisfied that the enemy was about to attack with his united forces, and again urged that a part of Lieutenant-General Polk's troops should be put at my disposal.
