l opinion was that Smith's long services in the army and distinguished deeds rendered him the more proper person for such command. Indeed I was rather inclined to this opinion myself at that time, and would have served as faithfully under Smith as he had done under me. But this did not justify the dispatches which General Halleck sent to Washington, or his subsequent concealment of them from me when pretending to explain the action of my superiors. On receipt of the order restoring me to command I proceeded to Savannah on the Tennessee, to which point my troops had advanced. General Smith was delighted to see me and was unhesitating in his denunciation of the treatment I had received. He was on a sick bed at the time, from which he never came away alive. His death was a severe loss to our western army. His personal courage was unquestioned, his judgment and professional acquirements were unsurpassed, and he had the confidence of those he commanded as well as of those over him.

Before I arrived at Savannah, Sherman, who had joined the Army of the Tennly spent the day at Pittsburg and returned to Savannah in the evening. I was intending to remove myBuell was expected daily and would come in at Savannah. I remained at this point, therefore, a few , with a division of Buell's army, arrived at Savannah and I ordered him to move up the east bank ofearned that General Buell himself would be at Savannah the next day, and desired to meet me on his ahim of the reason why I could not meet him at Savannah. On the way up the river I directed the disperve. General Smith was still sick in bed at Savannah, but within hearing of our guns. His serviceatch-boat used to run between the landing and Savannah.

requested him to follow. Note: In an article on the battle of Shiloh which I wrote for the Century Magazine, I stated that General A. McD. McCook, who commanded a division of Buell's army, expressed some unwillingness to pursue the enemy on Monday, April 7th, because of the condition of his troops. General Badeau, in his history, also makes the same statement, on my authority. Out of justice to General McCook and his command, I must say that they left a point twenty-two miles east of Savannah on the morning of the 6th. From the heavy rains of a few days previous and the passage of trains and artillery, the roads were necessarily deep in mud, which made marching slow. The division had not only marched through this mud the day before, but it had been in the rain all night without rest. It was engaged in the battle of the second day and did as good service as its position allowed. In fact an opportunity occurred for it to perform a conspicuous act of gallantry which elicited th
