Stephens's mission seemed to have a twofold object, namely, to seek, by an official reception at Washington, a recognition by the Government of the existence of a real government at Richmond; also if Lee (as it was expected he would by the time Stephens should reach the capital) was marching in triumph on Philadelphia, to demand peace upon terms of the absolute independence of the Confederate States. A Rebel War Clerk, in his diary, under date of July 10th, wrote: We know all about the mission of Vice-President Stephens. It was <*>ll-timed for success. At Washington news had been received of the defeat of General Lee. On the 16th he recorded: Again the Enquirer, edited by Mitchell, the Irishman, is urging the President to seize arbitrary power. On that day news reached Richmond that Lee had been driven across the Potomac. And the Secretary of State, satisfied that the rebellion would soon be crushed, sent Aug. 12, 1868. a cheering circu

At the same time there was a general movement July 9. of Sherman's forces from right to left, and thereby Johnston was compelled to abandon his position on each side of the river. He drew his entire army to the left bank of the stream, and took position on a new line that covered Atlanta, its left resting or the Chattahoochee, and its right on Peachtree Creek. On the 10th of July, or sixty-five days from the time he put his army in motion southward, Sherman was master of the country north and west of the river upon which he was resting — of nearly one-half of Georgia-and had accomplished one of the major objects of the campaign, namely, the advancement of the National lines from the Tennessee to the Chattahoochee. The possession of Atlanta, the key-point of military advantage in the campaign in that region, was to be the next prize for which the contending armi
