General Bragg having formed his plan of attack the following morning, God grant it may be so. After receiving orders from General Bragg to advance the next morning as soon as the troops on myps, General Longstreet joined the Army.

account the long distance which separated the Confederate forces eventually engaged in the battle of Chickamauga. Rosecranz was moving against Bragg, in Georgia, when Longstreet, with his corps, was ordered from Fredericksburg, Va., to report to Bragg, exactly as Polk was ordered to report to Johnston. Bragg, by manoeuvring, kept his adversary's attention till Longstreet made this long journey from Virginia, when followed the attack, which resulted in a glorious victory. It cannot, thereforeBragg, by manoeuvring, kept his adversary's attention till Longstreet made this long journey from Virginia, when followed the attack, which resulted in a glorious victory. It cannot, therefore, be argued with any degree of reason, when we consider these striking examples before us, that Polk's force-concentrating at a distance of about two hundred and eighty-eight miles, and being pushed rapidly forward by rail on the 4th of May--was not available on the 6th, when General Johnston was in position at Rocky-faced Ridge, and could easily have awaited the concentration of all his reinforcements at Dalton. The plan urged by this General that he was justified in his retreat from Dalton

I here give the subjoined extract from a letter of General Bragg, addressed to me at the close of the war: near Lowndesborongstreet's Corps, and remain on the defensive. Yours truly, Braxton Bragg. The President had thus agreed to afford General Johnston ent matter in abeyance, until the 13th of April when I addressed General Bragg the following letter: [Private.]Dalton, Georgia, Aprilase it should be necessary? Yours truly, J. B. Hood. To General Braxton Bragg. It will be seen that I was still urgent for an offensioned at Resaca by General Hood: Mobile, 29th May, 1874. General B. Bragg. General:-I answered your telegram day before yesterday; ha
throughout his correspondence with the Government, during the Winter and Spring of 1864, and in which he urges all available troops to be sent immediately to his command, one is led to suppose that he actually intended to fight at that stronghold. In his letter to President Davis, dated January 2d, 1 864, he speaks thus : Johnston's Narrative, page 275. I can see no other mode of taking the offensive here than to beat the enemy when he advances, and then move forward. In response to General Bragg's letter of March 12th, proffering fully eighty thousand (80,000) men, as an inducement to assume the offensive, and to which letter I have already referred, General Johnston dispatched the following telegram: Johnston's Narrative, page 294. Your letter by Colonel Sale received. Grant is at Nashville. Where Grant is we must expect the great Federal effort. We ought, therefore, to be prepared to beat him here --at Dalton. In his written reply to the same, he says: Johnston's

General Hood :--You ask to what extent your Army was strength-ened at Atlanta by the return of detailed men, and by dismounted cavalry ordered to you by General Bragg. I have the honor to state thatsso far as the detailed men are concerned, it was found necessary to return them to the arsenals and shops in rear, and that they were, as I believe, all so returned before the evacuation of Atlanta. Roddy's. cavalry, upon the very day it reached Atlanta, was ordered back to Alabama. Gholsen's brigade remained at Atlanta until its evacuation. It was, however, very small — not numbering more than two hundred and fifty (250) men, and was in most miserable
nxious reflection, and consultation with the corps commanders, I determined to communicate with the President, and ascertain whether or not reinforcements could be obtained from any quarter. In accordance with this decision, I telegraphed to General Bragg as follows: [no. 1.]Lovejoy Station, September 3d, 1.45 p. m.

We arrived at Coosaville on the 10th, and the day previous, when near Van Wert, I sent the following dispatch to General Bragg: [no. 34.] near Van Wert, Georgia, October 9th, 1864. General B.
