On the eighth directions were sent to General Rousseau to destroy all ferryboats and other means of crossing the river, and then move his command below Florence to await further orders.

The march from Montgomery to this place, a distance of two hundred and fifteen miles, was made between the fourteenth and twentieth of April, and involving the passage of the Chattahoochee river at two important points, both strongly fortified and well defended, is especially worthy of notice. The destruction of iron-works, foundries, arsenals, supplies, ammunition, and provisions in Alabama and Georgia, as well as the means of transporting the same, to both the armies under Taylor and Johnson, was an irreparable blow to the rebel cause. The railways converging at Atlanta, and particularly those by which the immense supplies of grain and meat were drawn from South-Western
