stacles that impeded his progress, and to subsist his army on the country through which he passed. At the time Sherman went to New Orleans to see General Banks, the latter had under his command at least 50,000 men, and could have easily captured Mobile, then garrisoned by only about 10,000 troops; but this place, so easy of access and so easily captured from the land side, was left unnoticed until the latter part of the war. Its capture was then undertaken by Rear-Admiral Thatcher and General Canby. The result was the loss of several vessels blown up by torpedoes, which the Confederates were able to lay down with impunity. General Banks had been writing to Admiral Porter up to the latter part of February, 1864, to co-operate with him in an advance into the Red River region, and in his answers the Admiral had tried to impress on the General the impropriety of such a movement at the then low stage of water, recommending him to wait until there was a prospect of a rise.

As there was no further occasion for the Admiral's presence, he left the gun-boats to cover the army and embarked in a tug to join his flag-ship, the Black Hawk, at the mouth of Red River. Here he found General Canby, who had been sent to relieve Banks, and was waiting the Admiral's arrival before he assumed command. Thus ended the Navy's connection with the Red River expedition, the most disastrous one that was undertaken during the war. In whatever we write in relation to the late war, we try to divest ourselves of all prejudice, and nothing that we can say will bear half so hard upon Banks and his supporters as many of the articles written at the time by persons serving immediately under the
