It had extinguished the last hope of culling Lee north of the James, and of interposing that army between him and the Confederate capital. The failure to seize Petersburg when it would easily have fallen, and the repeated and costly failures to carry its defenses by assault, or even to flank them on the south — the luckless conclusion of Wilson's and Kautz's raid to Staunton river-Sheridan's failure to unite with Hunter in Lee's rear-Sturgis's disastrous defeat by Forrest near Guntown — Hunter's failure to carry Lynchburg, and eccentric line of retreat-Sherman's bloody repulse at Kenesaw, and the compelled slowness of his advance on Atlanta-Early's unresisted swoop down the Valley into Maryland, his defeat of Wallace at the Monocacy, and his unpunished demonstration against the defenses of Washington itself — the raids of his troopers up to th<

Godfrey Weitzel, with Kautz's division of the 24th, and Ashborne's and Thomas's divisions of the 25th corps, under instructions from Grant to make the utmost show of strength and purpose to assault, so as to keep the enemy here in force, while the bulk of our army should be flanking and fighting him out of Petersburg. These instructions had been faithfully, efficiently obeyed; though Longstreet, confronting Weitzel, had at length suspected the true character of Grant's strategy, and had himself, with a part of his for
