At the same time there was a great National victory at Gettysburg (q. v.) and July 4, 1863, was the turning-point in the Civil War. In the battles from Port Gibson to Vicksburg Grant lost 9,855 men, of whom 1,223 were killed. In these engagements he had made 37,000 prisoners; and the Confederates had lost, besides, 10,000 killed and wounded, with a vast number of stragglers.

d, however much Plutarch may have offered him models for imitation. For six months the army of the Cumberland, in and around Murfreesboro, did naught but face Bragg.

All he then needed Rosecrans for was solely to keep Bragg from sending help to Pemberton. Finally Rosecrans, under this forcing process, moved on June 23d, with a force of 60,000 men.

He found it necessary to retreat to Ringgold, which he did on November 26, 1863. Here he was soon after relieved from command by Gen. Joseph E.
