tack Wauhatchie in flank or pass Raccoon Mountain to head off his adversaries at Shell Mound or Bridgeport. In the latter case he would have obliged them to evacuate Chattanooga, as he himself had been constrained to do by Rosecrans' march on La Fayette. We have no data in reference to the plans discussed in the Southern councils of war, but a subsequent report by Bragg seems to indicate that he could not make his personal opinion prevail. As famine was no longer an auxiliary in the matterorder to cover the right against the Federal troops which might come from Parker's Gap. A single line of skirmishers is along the edge of the river, and to encourage the enemy they even avoid destroying the bridge on the road from Ringgold to La Fayette. After a feint of defence in the last houses of the town they precipitately retire toward the gorge, accompanied by a battery of artillery.

This policy, forgetful of the sound traditions of monarchy, seemed to speculate on the dangers that threatened the flag served by La Fayette and defended by Rochambeau, in order to acquire a sort of protectorate over the countries that, situated between the two seas, form the centre of the American continent.

l Creek Gap. Rocky Face Ridge thus offered positions easy to defend, but also easy to flank, and consequently without any strategic value. In fact, on the one hand the ridge terminates abruptly three or three and a half miles north of Mill Creek Gap, which allowed the enemy emerging from Ringgold to reach Crow Valley without difficulty; on the other hand, the neck of Snake Creek Gap, which on the south separates this same ridge from the Chattooga Mountains, being crossed by the road from La Fayette to Resaca, the Federals could by the very shelter of the wall of Rocky Face debouch on the rear of Johnston and threaten the large Coosawhatchie bridge Fortunately, the Federals were very inferior to the Confederates in number, the re-enlistment furloughs having much reduced the effective force of the divisions. Moreover, by a coincidence still more fortunate, at the very moment when his outposts signalled the movements of the Federals, Johnston was informed that Hardee's troops were retu
