Francis B. Carpenter, Six Months at the White House, VI. (search)
VI. On the evening of February 4th, 1864, I went to Washington. Shortly after noon of the following day, I rang the bell at Mr. Lovejoy's residence on Fifteenth Street. To my sorrow, I found him very ill; but it was hoped by his friends that he was then improving. Though very feeble, he insisted upon seeing me, and calling for writing materials, sat up in bed to indite a note introducing me to the President. This, handed to me open; I read. One expression I have not forgotten, it was so like Mr. Lincoln himself, as I afterward came to know him. I am gaining very slowly.--It is hard work drawing the sled up-hill.

The two batteries, meanwhile, had been well planted on little hills near, and by eleven o'clock Hooker was at work, with a determination to assail the Confederates and drive them from Lookout Mountain--an enterprise, he said, under the circumstances, worthy the ambition and renown of the troops to whom it was intrusted. Hooker's Report, February 4, 1864. His adversary in immediate command before him, was General Walthall. Hooker's guns all opened at once on the breastworks and rifle-pits along the steep, wooded, and broken slopes of the mountain, with a destructive enfilading fire. Wood and Gross having completed their bridges, dashed across the creek under cover of this fire, and joining Geary on his left, pushed swiftly and vigorously down the valley, sweeping every thing before them, capturing the men in the rifle-pits, and allo
