y obstructing the march of the soldiers, multiplied the evils attending the campaign. Difficulties of this nature came near causing the loss of the largest body of troops that ever ventured to cross the Rocky Mountains, although commanded by an experienced officer —Sidney Johnston, who would undoubtedly have played a distinguished part in the Confederate armies, if he had not met with a premature death at the outset of the war on the battle-field of Shiloh. This little army, sent by President Buchanan in 1857 to reinstate the Federal authority among the Mormons, which they had disregarded, numbered twenty-five hundred combatants; but being obliged to carry eighteen months provisions, it had more than four thousand wagons in its train. With such a train its march was delayed by the least obstacle. At the crossing of every deep river, all the wagons had to be unloaded and set afloat, so as to be drawn to the opposite shore by ropes; then the provisions had to be carried by hand over

this chapter it has been our purpose to show the material resources which the two armies were going to put in operation. We have now seen those of the Federal army. The Confederate government could not count upon the industry and commerce of the rebel States to supply its troops with provisions, equipments, and arms to the same extent as its adversary. But at the outset of the war they possessed a very great advantage. As we have stated elsewhere, Mr. Floyd, Secretary of War under President Buchanan, had taken care to send to the South one hundred and fifteen thousand muskets, which, being added to the one hundred and twenty thousand already in the arsenals of Charleston, Fayetteville, Augusta, Mount Vernon, and Baton Rouge, secured a complete armament for the first Confederate armies of sufficiently good quality. The conduct of Secretary Floyd is referred to at the close of General J. E. Johnston's Narrative, with a view to exonerate him from these charges. See pp. 426 and 42

One of the chiefs of the secession party, Mr. Morehead, was arrested in Louisville and sent to Fort Lafayette; the rest took refuge with the Confederate armies. Among them might be seen Mr. Breckinridge, Vice-President of the republic under Mr. Buchanan, a skilful and bold politician, but who, under the Confederate uniform, made but a poor general; Humphrey Marshall, the brilliant cavalry colonel of the Mexican war; finally, John Morgan, who was soon to make himself known as the bravest and m
