attle was fought near that point, in which General Sherman was successful. Particulars not known. This was followed by a dispatch the next day from Sherman to Halleck. Here is an extract: Hood, at Atlanta, finding me on his road, the only one that could supply him, and between him and a considerable part of his army, blew u with no civil population to influence military measures. This determination met with strenuous opposition. Sherman's single expression, which he telegraphed to Halleck, gives a good idea of the state of things in the captured city just then: If the people raise a howl against my barbarity and cruelty, I will answer that war i and the other commanders from temptation. But what, of course, taxed his mind most was the next step to be taken. He corresponded voluminously with Grant and Halleck; he consulted freely with his corps and army commanders; he reorganized his forces with a view to efficiency. But his main plan for subsequent operations was ear

d permitting them to return to their homes. As soon as Sherman came back to Raleigh, Grant read the memorandum of agreement carefully, put his approval upon it, and leaving us the next day, took the same to Washington. On that day, April 26th, Halleck sent a dispatch to the Secretary of War, showing that troops had been sent from the Army of the Potomac into Sherman's vicinity. This singular clause occurs concerning a suspension of orders for the advancement of the Sixth Corps, made consequent upon Sherman's last agreement: I have telegraphed back to obey no orders of Sherman, but to push forward as rapidly as possible. Not only this, but Halleck asked the War Department for orders to General James H. Wilson, commanding cavalry, and then hurrying on southward, to obey no orders from Sherman! In the light of these dispatches, it is no wonder that Sherman, having three armies at his disposal, and not even relieved from duty, felt more deeply than can be described the insult so c

ge, and sometimes soldiers were sent to escort the fugitives on their return. All the armies of the Union were then in a great ferment on this subject. General H. W. Halleck, in the West, prohibited the slaves from entering the lines of any camp or any column on the march. General Thomas Williams in the far South at Baton Rougile insurrection by force, and General Don Carlos Buel, in Kentucky, continued to allow slave holders to come within his lines and recover their property, and General Halleck, in Missouri, forbade slaves to enter the lines; other commanders, especially in the West, grew wiser, and before long maintained a sounder war doctrine, viz.sked for their freedom. But the owner came for them. The Iowa officer denied him and allowed the slaves to escape. In consequence the department commander, General Halleck, sent a detachment in pursuit of the negroes. They were overtaken; one of them was shot and the others returned to the owner; at the same time the Iowa offic

newed its march the ensuing Monday; and as the divisions went through the town we passed in review before a multitude of interested spectators. At ten o'clock the morning of May 9th, we arrived at Manchester, opposite Richmond, where were General Halleck's headquarters. I paid a brief visit to the late Confederate capital, and after my return to Manchester, issued orders of march pursuant to General Sherman's instructions for my two corps to proceed via Hanover Court House to Alexandria and my staff intended to go on with Blair's head of column. But while there at Manchester, the following dispatch, which greatly surprised me, was placed in my hands: Washington, D. C., May 7, 1865, 9 P. M. Major General O. O. Howard, Care of General Halleck, Richmond, Va. Leave your army for corps commanders to bring overland and come on immediately yourself by water. Report on arrival to Secretary of War. U. S. Grant, Lieutenant General. This message, enigmatical enough for me, comin
