him, that evening, in company with General R. E. Lee, and Adjutant and Inspector General Cooper. At the appointed time the President, Generals Lee and Cooper, and CoCooper, and Colonel Preston, of your staff, met me in private conference. Being requested by the President to lay before those present the subject-matter with which I was charged,to adopt or reject his views. A high tribunal, composed of the President, Generals Cooper and Lee, took upon itself to check and render barren the strategic powers ma, under orders. Jefferson Davis. Later in the day, however, Adjutant-General Cooper sent this telegram: Richmond, July 17th 1861. General Beauregae of good fortune was unduly estimated at the Confederate capital; for General Cooper, on the following day, telegraphed, saying that General Johnston had not been hngent though it was—forwarded to General Johnston. He declined to act upon General Cooper's strange suggestion. Two days later he covered the Southern arms with glo
a Chief of Ordnance to attend to the duties of that important department. He also addressed the President on the same subject. In the month of August, Adjutant-General Cooper had earnestly approved General Beauregard's proposition to introduce a rocket battery in his command. The object of such a battery has already been explas termed the strategy of the campaign, remained unchanged, and, by an oversight, the date was left as originally written. A letter from General Beauregard to General Cooper showed distinctly, however, when the history of the battle was prepared and sent in to Richmond. With much surprise I found that the newspaper statements became opportune and thus secured the success by which it was attended. While writing these words, Mr. Davis had evidently lost sight of the telegram sent by General Cooper—it is needless to say by whose authority—which is given in full in the Appendix to Chapter VIII. of this work. For convenience, we copy it again, as follows
e President, as the representative and authorized exponent of General Beauregard's views on the subject. Besides Mr. Davis and Colonel Chestnut, Generals Lee and Cooper were present, and so was Colonel (afterwards General) John S. Preston, of South Carolina. We call the reader's special attention to Colonel Chestnut's report to l Run, refused to withdraw the call made upon General Johnston, so that the latter might be left to his full discretion. See, in Appendix to Chapter VIII., General Cooper's telegram to General Beauregard, to that effect. I Had General Beauregard obeyed the telegram of General Cooper, General Johnston, about whose movements theGeneral Cooper, General Johnston, about whose movements the War Department admitted its ignorance, would not have left Winchester, and no victory could have been won by the Confederates on the 21st of July. That junction, that victory, were the results of General Beauregard's untiring, unflinching perseverance. The first was effected, the second achieved, in spite of—not owing to—the ac
Chestnut's report of his mission, to which we refer the reader. To be found at the beginning of Chapter VIII. The result was, that, after consultation with Generals Cooper and Lee, the President once more refused to accede to the plan of concentration offered him by General Beauregard. The enemy were yet too near their cover toas unfortunate there as he was with the President. An expectant and defensive policy was, at that moment, the one absorbing thought of President Davis and of Generals Cooper, Lee, and Johnston. At last the crisis came upon us. On the 16th of July General Beauregard was informed, by a secret message from Washington, that GeneraIt was dated July 17th, and has already been transcribed in these pages. Too late, thought General Beauregard, and he so expressed himself in his telegram to General Cooper, advising him that the enemy will attack in force the next morning. And the enemy did. The engagement of Bull Run was fought and won; and General McDowell, f
Beauregard hoped that this expedition under Colonel Morgan, together with the operations in Kentucky suggested by General E. Kirby Smith, and strongly urged by General Beauregard on the War Department, See his telegrams of April 14th, to Generals Cooper and E. K. Smith. would force General Halleck, who was plodding away slowly in his advance on Corinth, to send back a part, if not all, of General Buell's army into Tennessee and Kentucky. A third expedition of two regiments of cavalry, underthe Chief Commissary at Richmond, a fact which General Beauregard had more than once pointed out to the War Department, and which he again brought home to it by the following despatch: See also, in Appendix, letter of General Beauregard to General Cooper, dated April 16th, 1862. Corinth, Miss., April 24th, 1862. General S. Cooper, Adjutant-General, Richmond: The false views of administration—to say the least—of Colonel Northrop will starve out this army unless I make other arrangemen
s General Beauregard had transferred to General Bragg the temporary command of the department as well as of the army proper. See his letter of June 15th to General Cooper. But even admitting that such a transfer had not been effected, is it not a fact—well known to Mr. Davis—that, while in command of a mere military district, swer to the Secretary of War; but, on the 25th, from Mobile, where he still was, advising General Forney, as he had said he would do, he wrote this letter to General Cooper: General,—Enclosed please find the certificate It has already been given to the reader. of my physicians, members of my general staff as inspectore War Department. In the meantime—namely, on the 25th of August—he had officially reported for duty in the field. The plan we here refer to was addressed to General Cooper, whose relations with General Beauregard had not ceased to be of an agreeable character. It was marked Confidential, and read thus: Mobile, Ala.,
