al fortifications around Corinth. About two and a half miles northward of the village, we passed out through the inner line of Confederate works, and were soon beyond the desolated region that had been stripped of its trees by the army, and riding through magnificent red oak forests, whose leaves were yet too tiny to give much shelter from the sun, then shining with great warmth. For nearly nine miles the country was gently rolling, and well watered with little streams, when, approaching Pea Ridge, it became hilly and very picturesque. On that ridge we came to the site of the once pretty little hamlet of Monterey, where the only building that remained was a store-house, which the Confederates had used for a hospital. Near it was a ruined house, around which were the remains of what had Confederate hospital at Monterey. doubtless been a fine flower-garden. From Monterey to some distance beyond Lick Creek the country was hilly, very little cleared, and less cultivated, dotted

e Nationals entered May 30. they found the smoldering ruins of many dwellings, and warehouses filled with Confederate stores. Thus ended the siege of Corinth; and thus the boastful Beauregard, whose performances generally fell far short of his promises, was utterly discomfited. Beauregard had issued the following address to his combined army on the 8th of May: Soldiers of Shiloh and Elkhorn : The Confederates, as we have observed, called the conflict between Curtis and Van Dorn, at Pea Ridge, the Battle of Elkhorn. We are about to meet once more in the shock of battle the invaders of our soil, the despoilers of our homes, the disturbers of our family ties, face to face, hand to hand. We are to decide whether we are freemen, or vile slaves of those who are only free in name, and who but yesterday were vanquished, although in largely superior numbers, in their own encampments, on the ever-memorable field of Shiloh. Let the impending battle decide our fate, and add a more illus

A desultory battle ensued, which lasted until nearly ten o'clock, when, just as General R. B. Mitchell's division was getting into line of battle on the right of the eminence occupied by McCook, the Second Missouri, of Pea Ridge fame, See page 256. with the Fifteenth Missouri as a support, came to McCook's aid. The Confederates were quickly repulsed and driven back into the woods, heavily smitten on the flank by the Second Minnesota battery. In this engagement a part of the Ninth Pennsylvania cavalry performed gallant service. Thus ended the preliminary battle of that eventful day. Mitchell and Sheridan were ordered to advance and hold the ground until the two flank corps should arrive. The head of that o

es, who were illy equipped, fled without striking a blow, and were chased about thirty miles into Arkansas. Schofield moved cautiously on, keeping his communications well guarded, and on the 17th of October he was on the old battle-ground of Pea Ridge. The Confederates were divided, a part, under General Cooper, having gone westward to Maysville, for the purpose of cutting the communications with Fort Scott, while the main body, under the immediate command of Rains, with about three thousanin full retreat over the mountains toward Ozark, with a determination to avoid a battle until expected re-enforcements should arrive. He pursued them some distance, when he turned northward, and marched to Cross Hollows and Osage Springs, near Pea Ridge. See map on page 258. There he learned that between three and four thousand Confederate cavalry were encamped on White River, eight miles from Fayetteville. He immediately ordered General Francis J. Herron to march with about a thousand cav

he railroad (nearer Johnston's communications); and he then informed him that General Taylor (whom Banks, as we have seen, See page 600. had, driven from the heart of Louisiana, and who was gathering forces there again) would endeavor, with eight thousand men from Richmond, in that State, to open communication with him from the west side of the river. Already that commander had sent between two and three thousand troops, under General Henry McCulloch (brother of Ben., who was killed at Pea Ridge), to strike — a blow. It was leveled at a little force, chiefly of colored troops, called the African brigade, stationed at Milliken's Bend, under General Elias S. Dennis, composed of about fourteen hundred These were the Twenty-third Iowa, white; and Ninth and Eleventh Louisiana and First Mississippi, colored. effective men, of whom all but one hundred and sixty (the Twenty-third Iowa) were negroes.
