he twenty-fourth of January, 1865. No. Lxxvii.--The Joint Resolution to present the Thanks of Congress to Major-General Philip H. Sheridan, and the Officers and Men under his Command. In the House, on the twenty-third of January, 1865, Mr. Washburne, of Illinois, introduced a joint resolution tendering the thanks of Congress to Major-General Sheridan, his officers and men, which was read twice, and referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. On the twenty-fifth, Mr. Deming, of Connectimendment in the nature of a substitute. The substitute declared: That the thanks of Congress be tendered to Major-General Philip H. Sheridan and the officers and men under his command, for the gallantry, military skill, and courage displayed in the ed a great disaster; and it further requested the President of the United States to communicate the resolution to Major-General Sheridan, and through him to the officers and soldiers under his command. The substitute was agreed to, and the resolutio

With the nine brigades of the two arms thus detached, it will be safe to say there have gone six batteries, eighty men each: four hundred and eighty; leaving him twenty batteries, two thousand one hundred and twenty, making a total reduction of sixteen thousand four hundred and eighty, leaving, of the three arms, a total of forty-one thousand six hundred and eighty. In this estimate I have placed all doubts in Bragg's favor, and I have no doubt it is considerably beyond the truth. General Sheridan, who has taken great pains to collect evidence on this point, places it considerably below these figures; but assuming these to be correct, and granting what is still more improbable, that Bragg would abandon all his rear posts, and entirely neglect his communications, and could bring his last man into battle, I next ask, What have we to oppose to him? The last official report of effective strength of this army, now on file in the office of the Assistant Adjutant-General, is dated Ju

A compact brigade, of Sheridan's division, not hitherto engaged, was at the moment crossing the field in the rear of the position then occupied by Buel, they did not fall into the hands of the enemy. After the attack had been repelled some of the men of the brigade of Sheridan's division kindly drew the pieces to the ravine, or rather dip in the ground in rear of the ridge on which the battery w the enemy on our immediate front. The troops were posted in a strong position to resist a night attack, the brigade of Sheridan's division and Buell's brigade being in juxtaposition, the former on the right and the latter on the left.

Although I had not been at all seriously engaged at any time during the morning, I was well

Two divisions of the Fourth army corps, General Sheridan's and my own, were to cross Citico Creek near its mouth, just above Chattanooga, move up the peninsula enclosed between the creek and the Tennessee River, forps, November 23, 1863. Brigadier General Wood, with his division, will as soon as possible carry out the foregoing instructions, and will be supported by General Sheridan's division, to be posted along near the line of railroad, its right resting about midway between Moore's road and the brush knob in front of Lunette Palmer. held in reserve in rear of Willich's left. This arrangement would fully protect Willich's left from any flank movement of the enemy during the advance. As General Sheridan had been ordered to occupy a position which would place his division in rear of my right flank during the advance, I had no occasion to look to the safety of

On account of the forest, General Sheridan saw but one flank of the operations of myrmy, except headquarter escorts, was with General Sheridan, whose operations were to be so distinct nk-road to Dinwiddie C. H., and report to General Sheridan. He will send a staff officer to report ker Road? Time is of the utmost importance. Sheridan cannot maintain himself at Dinwiddie without dispatch, showing so much solicitude for General Sheridan's position, and the necessity of reinforcly this time for the note itself to reach General Sheridan. Adding these two hours, would make it aeated dispatches from General Meade, that General Sheridan could not hold on without reinforcements,order from General Meade placing me under General Sheridan's orders, however, was not necessary for uisite and which may be practicable. But General Sheridan's calculation, as to the position of the [87 more...]

In the splendid advance which I have attempted to describe, through woods and fields, and over a part of Missionary Ridge, against the troops of Sheridan's and J. C. Davis's divisions, seventeen pieces of Federal artillery were captured by my division, fourteen of which were taken into possession and conveyed to the rear by Captain Waters, Acting Chief of Artillery, and three pieces by Major Ribys therefore reserved for the postscript: According to the strong testamentary evidence of the occasion, and that also of very many prisoners, this brigade, very materially and opportunely assisted by Anderson's, attacked, on Sunday morning, Sheridan's division, of McCook's corps; and, by the impetuosity of their attack, so thoroughly cut off Davis' division, of the same corps, that they never again assisted in the fight on that day; and, from the best information I can gather, fell back to

I immediately ordered Roberts' brigade, of Sheridan's division, to advance into a cedar-wood, ande train. To Brigadiers R. W. Johnson, Philip H. Sheridan, and Jeff. C.
