rters in the vicinity of Chattanooga. Bragg had already been relieved of command, at his own request, his forces turned over to the equally incompetent Hardee, and, as we have seen, a commission was given to the former, which charged him with the conduct of the military operations of the Confederacy. See page 142. Already the hearts of the loyal people of the land were overflowing with joy and gratitude because of the victories at Chattanooga and Knoxville. The President recommended Dec. 7, 1863. them to meet in their respective places of worship, and render united thanks to God for the great advancement of the National cause ; and in a brief letter to Grant, Dec. 8. he thanked that soldier and his men for their skill and bravery in securing a lodgment at Chattanooga and Knoxville. Congress voted thanks and a gold medal for Grant, Dec. 17. and directed the President of the Republic to cause the latter to be struck with suitable emblems, devices, and inscriptions. Grant was th

y and frankly what he had done, and what he proposed to do. He asked of me nothing but General Granger's command; and suggested, in view of the large force I had brought from Chattanooga, that I should return with due expedition to the line of the Hiawassee, lest Bragg, reenforced, might take advantage of our absence to resume the offensive. I asked him to reduce this to writing, which he did, and I here introduce it as part of my report: headquarters Army of the Ohio, Knoxville, December 7, 1863. Major-General W. T. Sherman, commanding, etc. General: I desire to express to you and your command my most hearty thanks and gratitude for your promptness in coming to our relief during the siege of Knoxville, and I am satisfied your approach served to raise the siege. The emergency having passed, I do not deem, for the present, any other portion of your command but the corps of General Granger necessary for operations in this section; and, inasmuch as General Grant has weakened th

Doc. 21.-message of Jefferson Davis. Delivered December 7, 1863. To the Senate and House of Representatives of the Confederate States: The necessity for legislative action, arising out of the important events that have marked the interval since your adjournment, and my desire to have the aid of your counsel on other matters of grave public interest, render your presence at this time more than ordinarily welcome. Indeed, but for serious obstacles to convoking you in extraordinary sese patriotism of the people has proved equal to every sacrifice demanded by their country's need. We have been united as a people never were united under like circumstances before. God has blessed us with success disproportionate to our means, and, under his divine favor, our labors must at last be crowned with the reward due to men who have given all they possess to the righteous defence of their inalienable rights, their homes, and their altars. Jefferson Davis. Richmond, December 7, 1863.
