t Gen'l Lee himself came up to the tree twice to ask about the positions and movements of the enemy. It was the same tree upon which Col. Freemantle sat (see Gen'l Hood's letter) until the opening of the battle, when (longing to see a fight, which he had never seen before,) he left his position. The questions of the English s faithful mirror, the cavalry, and without his ready counsellor, General Jackson. He himself felt this great loss in making his dispositions. He felt uneasy, as Hood justly remarks. All who saw him on these two occasions, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, will remember that Lee at Chancellorsville (where I had the honor of beasterly ability which was peculiar to him. This uneasiness during the days of the battle was contagious to the army, as will appear from the reports of Longstreet, Hood, Heth, and others, and as appeared also to me from the peep I had of the battle-field.

incident (implied) related is the first and only time I ever heard aught against any man of Gibson's gallant Louisiana brigade. I saw them around Atlanta and in Hood's Nashville campaign, and I know that, on consultation with Major General Clayton, I designated Gibson's brigade to cross the Tennessee river in open boats, in theforward, and their gallant bearing soon put the enemy's sharpsh-sooters to flight and secured a good crossing for two divisions of my corps. At Nashville, where Hood was defeated by Thomas, Gibson's brigade, of my corps, was conspicuously posted on the left of Pike, near Overton Hill, and I witnessed their driving back, with thter and said: These are the best men I have ever seen. The enemy was checked. This regiment was one of the first to cross the Tennessee river on the advance of Hood's army to Nashville, and was the last, as the rear guard of that army, to recross it on the retreat, and fired the last volley in regular line of battle in the las

General Hood, writing to Longstreet, says, General Lee wl be readily perceived, are at variance. General Hood says he arrived, with his staff, in front olanking of General Lee's orders, viz., marching Hood, who was in McLaws' rear and not governed by Gehalf miles of the position finally taken by General Hood's division. Here the road turned to the riand a half from the position finally reached by Hood. Had General McLaws pushed on by the route acrhich there could be no evasion, no appeal.

's army while manceuvreing in front of Johnston before Atlanta. He explained that by the aid of the electric telegraph he had free and instant communication with Sherman, and stated that every night they passed some time in telegraphic conversation with each other relative to the day's movements as well as to those to be made on the morrow; and the inference is plain that through all of that campaign Sherman had the benefit of Grant's advice at every stage of it. After Atlanta was passed, Hood having removed his army from Sherman's path, there was no longer any obstacle to his march to the sea. It lay through a pleasant and abundant country, occupied only by women and old men, and Sherman could go on and have his pleasure of the unprotected people — as he did. During the conversation before recited General Grant remarked to my friend, When I heard, sir, that your government had removed General Johnston from command of that army, I felt as much relief as if I had been able to re

Alexander and Colonel J. B. Walton, besides his own narrative in the Phill's corps to cooperate, its line of battle having been broken through the advice of General Early, and that in this attack Hood's and McLaws' divisions did the best fighting ever done on any field, and encountered and drove back virtually the whole o night several of my brigadiers came in and they all agreed in reporting the position very strong. At about midnight Generals Hood and Evans,%and possibly one or two others, came to my headquarters and made similar reports, expressing apprehensionsements. At about 3 P. M., while the battle was raging fiercely, I was riding to my front when I received a note from Generals Hood and Evans, asking me to ride to a part of the field where they were standing.

The attack was led by Hood's brigades, closely supported by Evans. These were whole command against the Federal centre and left. Hood's two brigades, followed by Evans, led the attack. Anderson's division came gallantly to the support of Hood, while the three brigades of Wilcox moved forward on and had made the attack early instead of late. General Hood says that Longstreet said to him on the morning I never like to go into battle with one boot off. Hood got up before sunrise, and he gives several circumstd to his incompetency. It is pitiable to think that Hood's gallant men were doomed to slaughter in a desperatthe ground, would have fallen into the possession of Hood's men with little or no contest; for Sykes' troops,
