unately for him, this line was weak in itself, consisting of half-bastions or simple rifle-pits, forming a connection between batteries of too little prominence; and, moreover, it was commanded by the enemy's guns at many points. An army of thirty thousand men, still full of ardor and supported by numerous artillery, occupied these lines. This army was composed of four strong divisions: that of Loring was at the extreme right, and Walker's in the right centre; the left centre was formed by French, and the extreme left by Breckinridge; Jackson, with his cavalry, covered the two wings as far as Pearl River above and below the place. Sherman, not deeming it feasible to carry this position by assault, resolved to compel his adversary to abandon it without a fight or to assume the offensive. The place was partially invested by the Thirteenth corps on the right, the Fifteenth in the centre, and the Ninth on the left. Lines of countervallation were immediately made: the bales of cotton

The Army of the Potomac, without French's division, which had not gone beyond Frederick, numbered on its returns on the 30th of June 167,251 men, more than 21,000 of whom were on detached service and ne

Although the charge of General Cooke was made under unfavorable circumstances, he must be praised for having ordered it. He could not select his ground, and by sacrificing a portion of the Fifth cavalry he saved several Federal batteries, to which he gave time to withdraw. Page 103. Instead of Richardson, read French.
