Bragg had been assured that the presence of a Confedt in political machinations was wholly lost to Bragg; and so little reinforcement was added to his ded thought the enemy would make a stand, but Bragg's troops retreated toward Perryville, only reson the field, he could have taken advantage of Bragg's final repulse, and there would have remained to the fact that he did not clearly apprehend Bragg's aim, which was to gain time to withdraw behiement, however; for it disclosed the fact that Bragg's army had disappeared toward Camp Dick RobinsOrchard, but some portions of the army kept at Bragg's heels until he crossed the Cumberland River,r portion through Somerset. As the retreat of Bragg transferred the theatre of operations back to lly worsted his champions by pointing out that Bragg's retreat by way of Harrodsburg beyond Dick's

Indeed, Card kept me so well posted as to every movement of the enemy, not only with referencrid us of the annoying fire from the skirmishers screened by it, but also place us close in to what was now developing as Bragg's line of battle. The movement was begun about half-past 2, and was successfully executed, after a stubborn resistance.

On the 23d of June Bragg was covering his position north of Duck River with a front extending from McMinnville, where hisgh Wartrace and Shelbyville to Columbia, his depot being at Tullahoma. Rosecrans, thinking that Bragg would offer strong resistance at Shelbyville — which was somewhat protected by a spur of low mought works near Estelle Springs, regained the Winchester road.

Granger was at Bragg's late headquarters in bed. I informed him of d almost certainly complete the destruction of Bragg's army. When General Grant came by my bivouacthe north end of the ridge, Grant disconcerted Bragg — who was thus made to fear the loss of his deColonel John Q. Lane.
