Potomac were unwilling to lead their soldiers to the attack. These two weeks, therefore, were employed on the part of the Federals in repairing the roads which connected their several camps, in constructing new ones, in extricating from the mud the large supply-trains, which scarcely sufficed for the distribution of daily rations, in strengthening the bridges and increasing their number, and finally in covering the whole battle-field of the 31st of May with vast works. About the middle of June the ground was once more practicable, and the Chickahominy, having again become a modest stream, did not appear inclined to renew its fatal freaks of violence. The army of the Potomac was at length firmly established, provided with excellent communications, and surrounded by strong entrenchments, which enabled it to concentrate without danger a large portion of its forces at any given point along its front. But these results had been dearly bought. The soldiers, obliged to work in the mud

deprived of all reinforcements, was obliged to confine himself to the task of defending a portion of the country he had conquered with so much daring and good fortune; this task occupied him during the entire siege of Corinth, and subjected his troops to great fatigue, being obliged as they were to range themselves along a line too much extended for their numbers. On the 13th of May, General Negley occupied Rodgersville on the right, on the Huntsville and Florence road; in the early part of June, he was sent to the extreme left, to menace Chattanooga and give chase to parties of Confederate cavalry, whose incursions were multiplying on that side. Among the expeditions undertaken by Mitchell's soldiers at this period, we must mention one which, despite its tragic termination, shows what a small band of daring men could attempt in America; it will give the reader an idea of the peculiar kind of warfare which served as an interlude to the regular campaigns of large armies.

ugust. During this period only a few skirmishes had disturbed the silence and inaction that succeeded the great marches and desperate struggles which the month of June had witnessed. Everything, however, seemed to indicate that a new crisis was at hand. A Federal army about fifty thousand strong, called the army of Virginia, waf this army gave rise to so much anxiety, Pope was reorganizing and concentrating his own. He knew that Jackson, on leaving the valley of Virginia in the middle of June, had announced his intention of reappearing in those regions at the end of one month, and the inhabitants awaited his return with implicit confidence. Everything respect, would have been to repair the disorder introduced into his several army corps, by the error of which his predecessors had been guilty during the month of June. A large number of stragglers had ended by deserting into the interior. No distinction appears to have then been made between those present and the absentees in

of the great expedition prepared by Bragg. To enable him to undertake it, he required an enormous materiel; and the convoy which had left Tupelo in the middle of June, after the evacuation of Corinth, had been obliged to perform a long and tedious journey in order to rejoin him. The wagons, and even the artillery, being deprivedWE have said in a former chapter that Halleck had been unable to employ, in any important operation south or east, the large forces at his disposal in the month of June. He had allowed the Confederates to establish themselves at Vicksburg and Port Hudson. These two citadels, which reciprocally covered each other, barred the navii, the Federal troops lately stationed in that State having been sent to Pittsburg Landing immediately after the battle of Shiloh.
