o occupy the works surrounding Jackson: other reinforcements were shortly expected. An order from President Davis had detached the infantry brigades of Ector and McNair from Bragg's army, and to Pemberton had restored Jackson's division of cavalry, which Van Dorn had recently brought with him. All these forces had been directed tbly reduced the effective force of his army. The Richmond government, after taking from him Stevenson's division in December, 1862, and the brigades of Ector and McNair at the end of April, for the benefit of Pemberton, has again ordered him, at the news of the battle of Champion's Hill, to send the old cavalry division of Van Dosted. Johnston, however, had not long to wait for the first reinforcements. On the 20th and 21st of May he hailed the arrival at Jackson of Gist's, Ector's, and McNair's brigades, detached from Tullahoma, and also Loring, who, with his six thousand soldiers, had been wandering about since the battle of Champion's Hill.
