and only small squads of stragglers could be rallied at scattered points in the rear.
The Confederates had, however, exacted severe penalties from French and Richardson.
Neither suffered to quite the extent that Sedgwick had done, though each of them lost heavily and Sumner himself had much of his ardor cooled.
Richardson lost 1165, and was himself mortally wounded.
French lost 1750.
But the danger to the Confederates now lay in the presence on the field of Franklin, with Slocum's and Smith's divisions of the 6th corps of about 6000 each, fine troops and well commanded.
Franklin, too, was anxious to attack.
Already he had sent one brigade, Irwin's, to the relief of Greene, when he was pursued out of the Dunkard woods, and this brigade found work enough to do to suffer 342 casualties.
Another brigade, Hancock's, though not seriously engaged,—
formed as support to two of Gen. Sumner's batteries, then severely pressed by the enemy, drove away his skirmishers who had alread
