ment in regard to the removal of the records to Macon, by the following declaration, which prefaces the diary of Brigadier General Shoupe: Memoranda of daily movements and events in the Army of Tennessee, kept by Brigadier General F. A. Shoupe, aF. A. Shoupe, assigned to duty as Chief of Staff by orders from General Hood, dated July 24th, 1864: No records were turned over by former chief of staff; therefore, the records of the office embrace only the administration of General Shoupe. Major Falconer,General Shoupe. Major Falconer, in referring to General Johnston's last return of the 10th of July, says: The report was made under General Johnston, and signed by General Hood. On the 18th of July the command was turned over to General Hood. He estimates the force turned overat forty-eight thousand seven hundred and fifty (48,750), which estimate I arrived at through my chief of staff, Brigadier General Shoupe, who was with me at the time I made my official report. I also placed his losses at twenty-two thousand seven h

Shoupe, General Johnston's chief of artillery,oes not, if I remember correctly, refer to General Shoupe's monition in his own official report, whi continued to cannonade until night. Brigadier General Shoupe, chief of artillery, had pointed out ed; that according to the above statement, General Shoupe pointed out only a small portion of our limight be enfiladed by artillery; also that General Shoupe was requested to instruct the officer ther construction of traverses. The truth is, General Shoupe reported to General Johnston that a large by General Shoupe himself, at present the Reverend Dr. Shoupe, of Sewanee, Tennessee. The subjoinese to ask. With high regard, I am, &c., F. A. Shoupe. The memory of General Johnston must aded for one or two hours before sunset, as General Shoupe had pre-admonished General Johnston, Polk as that of which I had conversed with Brigadier General Shoupe. On that account they urged me to ab[2 more...]
by General Polk and myself, at Polk's headquarters, during this important council; and when I charged General Johnston with the suppression of the most important part of the recommendations made to him by each of us, I was under the impression that only Johnston, Polk and I were present in the room during the discussion. Fortunately, however, the complete vindication of my assertion has arisen from a source I little expected. In addition to the strong evidence adduced by the letters of General Shoupe and Doctor Polk, I am favored with the subjoined full and explanatory letter from a gentleman of no less position than that of chief engineer of a corps d'armee, and who was present, in the room, during the council of war held by Johnston, Polk, and myself, with map and measurement of angles of the position in question: New York, June 25th, 1874. Dr. W. M. Polk, 288 Fifth Avenue, New York. Dear Sir:--In reply to your note of the 2oth inst., asking me to give you my recollection
support to expect from his neighbor, in the hour of battle. Stewart, Cheatham, and G. W. Smith, were ordered to occupy soon after dark the positions assigned them in the new line round the city, and to entrench as thoroughly as possible. General Shoupe, chief of artillery, was ordered to mass artillery on our right. General Hardee was directed to put his corps in motion soon after dusk; to move south on the McDonough road, across Entrenchment creek at Cobb's Mills, and to completely turn ted to be thrown back a short distance on their extreme left. After awaiting nearly the entire morning, I heard, about ten or eleven o'clock, skirmishing going on directly opposite the left of the enemy, which was in front of Cheatham's right and Shoupe's artillery. A considerable time had elapsed when I discovered, with astonishment and bitter disappointment, a line of battle composed of one of Hardee's divisions advancing directly against the entrenched flank of the enemy. I at once perceive
Chapter 12: Siege of Atlanta engagement of the 28th of July Wheeler, Iverson and Jackson battle of Jonesboroa evacuation of Atlanta. In accordance with the valuable diary of Brigadier General Shoupe, I find naught to record after the battle of the 22d beyond the usual shelling by the enemy, till the 26th of July when the Federals were reported to be moving to our left. This movement continued during the 27th, when I received the additional information that their cavalry was Iverson, the same date: General Stoneman, after having his force routed yesterday, surrendered with five hundred (500) men; the rest of his command are scattered and flying toward Eatonton. Many have been already killed and captured. General Shoupe, in recording these two telegrams in his diary, states that Iverson also captured two pieces of artillery, and remarks that the Ist day of August deserves to be marked with a white stone. He, doubtless in common with every Southerner, experi
al, with the exception of about two hundred and fifty men of Gholsen's brigade (which small force I have not taken into account), as the following letter from General Shoupe will indicate: Richmond, March 10th, 1865. General Hood :--You ask to what extent your Army was strength-ened at Atlanta by the return of detailed me (250) men, and was in most miserable condition. So that the reinforcements, in truth, amounted to nothing. I have the honor to be very respectfully, etc., F. A. Shoupe, Brigadier General and Chief of Staff at Atlanta. Although the number of killed and wounded in the Army of Tennessee proper, during the siege, amounted to oss he sustained. I have not been able to glean from his statements the decrease of his Army from this latter source. I find, however, the following recorded in Shoupe's Diary on the 17th of August: Enemy's pickets called to ours, and stated that a Kentucky Division, twenty-two hundred (2200) strong, was going out of service
house, within four miles of Lost Mountain. On the 4th, General Stewart captured, after a slight resistance, about one hundred and seventy prisoners, at Big Shanty, and, at 9.30 a. m., the garrison at Ackworth, numbering two hundred and fifty men, surrendered to General Loring. The forces under these officers joined the main body near Lost Mountain on the morning of the 5th, having, in addition, destroyed about ten or fifteen miles of the railroad. I had received information — and General Shoupe records the same in his diary — that the enemy had in store, at Allatoona, large supplies which were guarded by two or three regiments. As one of the main objects of the campaign was to deprive the enemy of provisions, Major General French was ordered to move with his Division, capture the garrison, if practicable, and gain possession of the supplies. Accordingly, on the 5th, at 10 a. m., after a refusal to surrender, he attacked the Federal forces at Allatoona, and succeeded in captur
ng nearly the same number. The men who bore ours were killed on or within the enemy's interior line of works. J. B. Hood, General. The estimate of the actual loss at Franklin, given in my official report, was made with the assistance of General Shoupe, my chief of staff, and is, I consider, correct. However, I will estimate later the total loss from all causes, in order to avoid possible error. After the failure of my cherished plan to crush Schofield's Army before it reached its stronest to be relieved from the command of this Army. J. B. Hood, General. On the 15th, after consultation with General Beauregard, a system of furloughing the troops was agreed upon. In reference thereto, I find the following memorandum in General Shoupe's diary: A system of furloughing the troops established. See General Order No. I, 1865, and circular letter to corps commanders, field dispatches, No. 542. In a dispatch of January 3d to President Davis, I asked for authority to gran
defence of the place being wholly useless from their position; Stewart's and Cheatham's Corps to take position and construct works to defend the city — the former on the left, the latter on the right. The artillery, under the command of Brigadier General Shoupe, was massed on the extreme right. Hardee was ordered to move with his corps, during the night of the 21st, south on the McDonough road, crossing Entrenchment creek at Cobb's Mills, and to completely turn the left of McPherson's Army. There General Johnston decided to take up his line on the ridge in rear of the one occupied by General Polk, a line which was enfiladed by heights of which the enemy would at once possess himself, as was pointed out to General Johnston by Brigadier General Shoupe, commanding the artillery. In a very short time thereafter the enemy placed his artillery on these heights, and began to enfilade General Polk's line. Observing the effect upon the troops of this fire, I was convinced that the position
