General Joseph E. Johnston, Narrative of Military Operations During the Civil War, Chapter 1 (search)
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 communicationsection, were mounted on Furnace Ridge.

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
