The Daily Dispatch: December 16, 1861., [Electronic resource], A Biographical sketch of Marble Nash Taylor. (search)
The Department of Missouri. The late report in regard to the appointment of Col. Heth to the command of the Department of Missouri, to supersede General Price, created intense excitement in the West, which was happily allayed by the following dispatch from the President to an officer in Memphis: Richmond, Dec. 9, 1861. To Major W. A. Broadwell: The rumor that Gen. Price will be superseded is false, if not malignant. I have not received a tender of Missouri troops, and consequently have no power to make appointments for them, or to control their organization. Jeff. Davis. The report now current is that Col. Het has been simply assigned to the Department of Arkansas and Missouri.
