d a quarter lower down, fronting Smithfield. The Sixth corps was to hold itself in readiness to cross at the upper bridges, Reynolds at the lower, while Sickles remained in reserve in order to support either of the others. In the preceding volume, in describing the battlefield of Fredericksburg, the reader will remember that the road called the Telegraph Road, after skirting Marye's Hill, stretches in a southerly direction—that is to say, toward Richmond—passing behind the positions which Franklin had attacked in vain on the 13th of December; the route called the River Road, which skirts the river, becomes divided before reaching the Massaponax, one branch of which, called the Bowling Green Road, pursues likewise a southerly direction; finally, the railway between Aquia Creek and Richmond follows a parallel course between the two. These three routes supplied Lee's army with provisions, and afforded him the shortest line of retreat upon the capital of Virginia. Hooker directed Sedgw

The bridge which they have burnt can be so easily rebuilt that their expedition may be considered a failure; the Wytheville fight has been for them a complete defeat; the orders that Toland was carrying are written in cipher, and no one has the key. It is therefore necessary that his successor, Lieutenant-colonel Franklin, should retreat by the shortest road through the Kanawha Valley. On this route of course the Confederates will await him. He takes a northerly direction, crosses East Mountain, and halts at Raleigh Court-house. The Federals' supplies are exhausted, and they march for two days upon what they can gather up in this almost deserted country.
