od facing each other on the 20th of June, 1863, General Bragg estimated the effective strength of his army at 30,449 infantry, 13,962 cavalry, and 2254 artillery. Polk and Hardee commanded his two corps of infantry, and Wheeler and Forrest the cavalry. Deducting the garrisons of Nashville and points Map of the Tullahoma camy, 6806 cavalry, and 3065 artillery, for an offensive campaign. Having received full and accurate descriptions of the fortifications at Tullahoma, where a part of Polk's corps was intrenched behind formidable breastworks, protected by an abatis of fallen trees six hundred yards in width, and at Shelbyville, where Hardee had fortie left with the 4th Regular Cavalry of his brigade, sabering the gunners and pursuing the remainder through the town. Bragg had ordered Hardee to the support of Polk's threatened left flank, leaving Shelbyville with its elaborately planned fortifications to fall before a cavalry charge after a brief struggle by the rear-guard.

It will be noted, however, that General Polk was ordered to take position at a particulaces on the 13th and 14th. [See letter from Captain Polk, p. 662.] The truth is, General Bragg wa the attack. I proposed to the wing commander, Polk, to make a second advance, provided fresh troopd that there was no more fight in the troops of Polk's wing, that he could give Longstreet no reenfotheir two heroic wing commanders Longstreet and Polk. In the lull of the strife I went with a staffhis five brigades had been detached, the one by Polk and the other by myself, to fill gaps in the lil of the fight on the right. At 3:30 P. M.

General Polk at Chickamauga. by his son, Captain W. M. Polk, of his staff. The reason given by General Polk for the delay in attack on the morning of September 20th, 1863, was that General Hill's corps was not ready for the assault. General Polk sent General Hill an order at midnight to attack at daylight, but General Hill could not be found (either on his line of battle or at Tedford's Ford, where his headquarters were reported to be). Upon learning this fact General Polk issued an order, dated 5:30 A. M., direct to Hill's division commanders to attack as soon as they could get into position. This second order was delivered in the presence of General Hill by Captain Wheless soon after sunrise, about 6:15. To this General Hill replied that his men were getting rations and that he would not be ready to move for an hour or more. General Polk reported this reply to General Bragg, in a note dated 7 A. M., and stated that the attack would be made as soon as General Hill was ready.

You will find out from them that they expect to attack us this morning. Cavalry have been to the right of the Third Louisiana Regiment this morning, and have found out, I doubt not, that that regiment can be easily flanked.

immediately with the Corps commander. The movement was commenced at ten o'clock P. M., the sixth, and made with perfect success, though my pickets were at the time in hearing of the enemy's pickets. My command was thus safely extricated from immediate imminent danger. I learned satisfactorily, during the afternoon of the sixth, that the spur of Lookout Mountain was held by Chatham's division, supported immediately in rear of Hindman's (late Withers's) division, being the whole of Lieutenant-General Polk's Corps. My two small brigades confronted this force. About eight A. M. in the morning of the seventh, I received a copy of a communication addressed by the commanding General to the Corps commander, saying that he thought it would be safe (judging from some indications he had obtained of the movements of the enemy) to threaten the enemy on the spur of Lookout Mountain with a part of my force. This communication the corps commander appears to have construed into an order to make

on of my troops. On subsequent examination of the field, I found the statements of the citizens referred to in my report correct, as the barricades,extended fully three-fourths of a mile beyond the Franklin road. I am well satisfied that Hardee's corps, supported by McCown's division (late of Kirby Smith's corps), attacked Kirk's and Willich's brigade about the same time Withers' division attacked Davis, and Cheatham's division attacked Sheridan. Cheatham's and Withers' divisions compose Polk's corps. I was in the rear of the centre of my line when this attack commenced; therefore I did not see all of the columns that attacked and turned my right; but it may be safely estimated that the rebel force outnumbered ours three to one. After leaving my line of battle, the ground in the rear was, first, open fields; second, woods — then a dense cedar-thicket; and over such ground it was almost impossible for troops to retire in good order, particularly when assailed by superior numb
