quence. The Confederates still held the Roanoke River above Plymouth, as there was not a sufficient naval force in the Sounds to operate successfully in that quarter.

Circumstances also combined to favor Sherman's advance. When the Federal campaign in South Carolina commenced, Hardee had eighteen thousand men; when he reached Cheraw he had but eleven thousand, and at Averyboroa the number had diminish
