its value as I did, except those who disposed the forces of the United States in September, 1862, when eleven thousand men, placed at Harper's Ferry as a garrison, were captured, almost without resistance, by General Lee's troops, coming from Maryland. My objections to Harper's Ferry as a position, and to the idea of making a garrison instead of an active force of the troops intrusted with the defense of that district, were expressed to the proper authorities in letters dated May 26th and 28th, and June 6th, and replied to by General Lee After Richmond became the seat of the Confederate Government, General Lee performed a part of the duties of the Secretary of War, and of the Adjutant-General. on the 1st and 7th of June. These letters of his express the dissent of the authorities from my views, and their opinion that the maintenance of the existing arrangement was necessary to enable us to retain the command of the Valley of Virginia, and our communications with Maryland, held t

the Confederate army would have outnumbered that which the Federal Government was forming for our subjugation. It was reported, about the end of August, that General A. S. Johnston, coming from California by the southern (land) route, had entered the Confederacy; and, on the 31st of the month, the President nominated five persons to be generals in the Confederate army: First, S. Cooper, to rank from May 16th, the date of the law creating the grade; second, A. S. Johnston, to rank from May 28th; third, R. E. Lee, from June 14th; fourth, J. E. Johnston, from July 4th; and, fifth, G. T. Beauregard, from July 21st, the date of the appointment previously conferred upon him. See the President's telegrams on p. 21. This action was altogether illegal, and contrary to all the laws enacted to regulate the rank of the class of officers concerned. Those laws were: 1. The act of March 6th, fixing the military establishment of the Confederacy, and providing for four brigadier-generals, t

equested, on the 17th, that you should refer by dates to any such communication as that alleged by you. XXV. You answered on 20th June, apologized for carelessness in your first reply, and referred me to a passage from my telegram to you of 28th May, and to one from the Secretary of War of 5th June; and then informed me that you considered Executive as including Secretary of War. XXVI. Your telegram of 12th June was addressed to the Secretary of War in the second person; it begins yourtary of War of 5th June, followed by that of 8th June, conveyed unmistakably the very reverse of the meaning you attribute to them, and your reference to them as supporting your position is unintelligible. I revert, therefore, to my telegram of 28th May. That telegram was in answer to one from you in which you stated that on the arrival of certain reinforcements, then on the way, you would have about twenty-three thousand; that Pemberton could be saved only by beating Grant; and you added: Un

ood's message was dispatched, the resulting delay, by enabling the enemy to reenforce the threatened point and complete the intrenchments begun, made it no longer so. He was therefore recalled. General Hood contradicts this statement, as it appeared in my official report, in his own, referred to in the notes to page 324. (In confirmation of my statement, see General Mackall's statement in those notes.) Lieutenant-General Hardee, in the letter quoted in the note to page 324, wrote: On the 28th of May, at New Hope Church, instructions were given the assembled corps commanders, Generals Polk, Hood, and myself, for a general engagement the next day. General Hood was to get in position during the night, and attack the left flank of the enemy the following morning. The attack thus begun was to be joined in by the rest of the army successively. I was present with you in the forenoon of the 29th, awaiting the attack by General Hood, which was to signal the general engagement, when a report

ming command at Harper's Ferry to your evacuation of the place, you always expressed the conviction that, with the force under your command, the position was weak and untenable.... My recollection is that, after assuming command, you reported to General Lee against the occupation of Harper's Ferry, and that authority for its evacuation was received about the time the position was abandoned. It is evident from General Lee's letters, Page 20. of June 1st and 7th, that mine of May 26th and 28th, and June 6th, expressed opinions decidedly unfavorable to Harper's Ferry as a military position, and proposed its evacuation. General Smith's testimony is direct and positive to the same effect; and the extract above, from my official report of the events in question, is conclusive as to the opinion of the intrinsic strength and strategical value of Harper's Ferry that I expressed to the Administration. And all combine with the narrative, from page 6 to page 16, to prove that, from the fir

cite as a restriction on you against withdrawing troops from Tennessee, and have to repeat my inquiry, To what do you refer? Give date of dispatch or letter. (Signed) Jefferson Davis. Jackson, June 20, 1863. To his Excellency the President: I much regret the carelessness of my reply of the 16th to your telegram of the 15th. In my dispatch of the 12th, to the Secretary of War, I referred to your words, We have withheld nothing which it was practicable to give, in your telegram of May 28th, and to the telegram of June 5th, From the Secretary of War. except the last sentence. I considered Executive as including the Secretary of War. J. E. Johnston. War Department, June 16, 1863. General J. E. Johnston: Your telegram That of June 15th. grieves and alarms me. Vicksburg must not be lost without a desperate struggle. The interest and honor of the Confederacy forbid it. I rely on you still to avert the loss. If better resources do not offer, you must hazard attack.
