pelling him to look to the safety of his corps.
But new dispositions were made, and Grant and Meade, now at Cold Harbor, resolved that the Rebel lines should be forced on the morrow.
The two armies held much of the ground covered by McClellan's right, under Fitz-John Porter, prior to Lee's bold advance, nearly two years before: Gaines's mill being directly in the rear of the Confederate center; while Sheridan's cavalry patrolled the roads in our rear leading to our base at White House, covered our left and observed the Chickahominy eastward of Richmond.
Wilson, with his cavalry division, watched our right flank.
Burnside was still on Warren's right and rear; Smith, Wright, and Hancock stretched farther and farther to the left.
In our front, Lee not only had a very good position naturally, but he knew how to make the most of its advantages — the single point in which (but it is a vital one) his admirers can justify their claim for him of a rare military genius.
