But public opinion warranted and even compelled Davis to assign Johnston to the chief western command in the following November. It included the departments of Bragg, Pemberton, Holmes and others. He at once began urging the policy of concentration, but says he soon found his command was really only nominal. In a letter as eay of A. S. Johnston, Beauregard and Van Dorn, losing the Mississippi as his predecessors had lost Kentucky and Tennessee. Then he spasmodically concentrated under Bragg in an abortive attempt to retrieve affairs at Chickamauga, but immediately afterward the old system of diffusion was resumed by sending Longstreet to Knoxville, afnity. He pertinently observes, that like himself, Lee was falling back before Grant in Virginia, yet constantly gaining in military renown, and further, that Lee, Bragg and Pemberton were forgiven faults for which he was condemned. He points with telling force to the fact that a trial of the cyclone policy of offence against th

The fight lasted a part of Granger and Steedman. The Confederates were commanded by General Bragg, with Cleburne, Cheatham, Stewart, Walker, Bushrod Johnson, Hindmans on the left, Crittenden in the center and McCook on the right.

re frequent and most successful. No rivers stopped him, and any detailed accounts of the railways and valuable military stores he destroyed and the fortified posts he captured would alone fill a volume. His pursuit of Colonel Streight's column for four days and nights in 1863 reads like an exciting novel. It ended in his saving the great arsenal and in the capture of Streight and one thousand seven hundred of his men by the six hundred troopers he then had with him.

As he took no notice of her entreaties, she shook her fist at him and cried out: Oh, you big, cowardly rascal, I only wish old Forrest was here; he'd make you fight! Such was then the public estimation in which he was held. But, as we sometimes find in all armies, his commander-in-chief did not agree with this

tain. He it was, it is said, who placed General Jackson in the position, the stern holding of which gained for him the famed soubriquet of Stonewall. He planned the fortifications of Centreville and other points, and made, it is said, the most correct map of the battlefield of Manassas extant. Accompanying General Beauregard to the West, he planned the fortification of Island No.10, Fort Hilton, and Vicksburg. He also accompanied a reconnoitering expedition into Kentucky, sent out by General Bragg. When General Beauregard was ordered to Charleston, by his request, General Harris accompanied him as engineer, and constructed the defences there with such consummate skill that they withstood all assault, and only fell into the hands of the enemy upon evacuation. He directed the irresistable armament of Battery Wagner, the defence of which is so thrillingly depicted in the eloquent address of Colonel Twiggs in preceding pages of this volume. He was subsequently sent by General Be
