The lower story was pierced for cannon, and the upper story, or tower, for musketry. among the ruins of a once pleasant town, on a slope at the foot of a high rocky mountain. Passing on from Stevenson, we observed many earth-works and block-houses; and at each end of the temporary railway bridge at Bridgeport, where we crossed the Tennessee River, we noticed heavy redoubts. At Shellmound we entered the mountain region south of the Tennessee. The road gradually ascended, and in some places skirted the margin of the river, high above its bed. We soon reached one of the deep mountain gorges through which Hooker passed, See page 152. and crossed it upon delicate trestle-work two hundred feet in air above the stream that passed through it,, the, whole trembling fearfully as our heavy train moved over it at a very slow pace.

Thus the latter officer was furnished with strength believed to be sufficient to keep Hood out of Tennessee; and he was invested with unlimited discretionary powers in the use of his material. Sherman estimated Hood's force at thirty-five thousand infantry and ten thousand cavalry. By the first of November, Hood made his appearance near the Tennessee River, in the vicinity of Decatur, and passing on to Tuscumbia, laid a pontoon bridge across that stream at Florence. Then Sherman turned his force toward Atlanta, preparatory to taking up his march for the sea. The Army of the Tennessee moved back to the south side of the Coosa, to the vicinity of Smyrna Camp-ground.

Morgan's division was moved from Ame. The railway from Nashville on the north there crossed the Tennessee River, and met the one extending westward to Memphis, and eastward t to Tuscumbia. That important movement was the passage of the Tennessee River by Hood's army, a part of which crossed it at the mouth of Cypessee with a heavy mounted force and nine guns, and struck the Tennessee River opposite Johnsonville, in Stewart County, which was connected ess in a conflict. Fortunately, Hood lingered on the bank of the Tennessee until past the middle of November; for, while Sherman remained not Scottsboroa, and was repulsed, but succeeded in crossing the Tennessee River with a remnant of his command, only about 200 in number.
