General Bragg notified me at the same time that General Trapier, with General Wither's division, was marching forward to support my division on my left, and that he had been directed to communicate with me and to conform to my directions. Colonel McCullock, with about two hundred Arkansas cavalry, joined me some two miles distant from the trenches, and one-half of his force was thrown out as flankers to the right and left and the remainder in the advance. In the vicinity of the town we discovered a body of the enemy's cavalry and dispersed it by a section of Captain Ducatel's guns of the Orleans Guards battery. These guns were brought into the action about half a mile from the town and before General Van Dorn notified his arrival,

His command was very large in extent, and his powers and discretion as large as the theory of the Confederate government permitted. He lacked nothing except men, munitions of war, and the means of obtaining them. The Mississippi river divided his department into two distinct theatres of war. West of the river Fremont held Missouri with a force of from 60,000 to 80,000 troops confronted by Price and McCullock in the extreme southwest corner of Missouri, with 6,000 men, and by Hardee in the northeastern part of Arkansas, with several thousand raw recruits, the major part of them suffering from diseases incident to camp life. East of the Mississippi the northern boundary of Tennessee was held in sufferance from an enemy who for various reasons hesitated to advance. The Mississippi was open to a naval invasion unless it could be defended and held. General Grant was at Cairo, and had there and

I sent him a dispatch to this effect, but it was never received by him;--before it was penned, his brave spirit had winged its flight, and one of the most gallant leaders of the Confederacy had fought his last battle. About three P. M., I received by aid-decamp, the information that Generals McCullock, McIntosh, and Col. Hebert, were killed, and that the division was without any head. I nevertheless pressed forward with the attack, and at sunset the enemy was flying before our victorious troops at every point in our front, and when night fell we had driven him entirely from the field of battle.
