The Hamburg road penetrated the line near Neng upon the junction of Crittenden's right and McCook's left, and a fourth in the immediate front oer was averted by Terrell's regular battery of McCook's division, which, having just arrived from Saay until two brigades, Gibson's and Kirk's, of McCook's division, joined in the struggle.

Jackson, and by a small disjointed brigade under Colonel Pond, at about 1 P. M. With those forces General Bragg not only held at bay those opposed to him, but took the offensive several times, and, on the arrival of Cheatham's division in its proper place, compelled Wallace, Sherman, and McClernand to call earnestly on McCook, of Buell's army, for support.

Wallace's division of General Grant's army, making at least 33,000 fresh troops; which, added to the remnant of General Grant's forces on Monday morning, amounting to 20,000, made an aggregate force of at least 53,000 men arrayed against us on that day. In connection with the results of the battle, I should state that most of our men who had inferior arms exchanged them for the
