his Diary, under date of May 28, 1863, he wrote: When I arrived [at Wartrace], I found that General Hardee was in company with General Polk and Bishop Elliott of Georgia, and also with Mr. Vallandigham.

und on the river, mechanics of the army set about building one for the public service. In a very short time the Chattanooga was made ready; and when the operations of the National troops in the Lookout Valley secured the safe navigation of the river from Bridgeport to Brown's Ferry, she commenced regular trips between the two places, under the command of Captain Arthur Edwards. She was called the Cracker line by the Confederates, the word Cracker being a name applied to the mean whites of Georgia. The Chattanooga was the first vessel of the kind built by the soldiers for their use. Others were begun soon afterward. She was constructed chiefly by the Michigan engineer regiment already mentioned. was immediately loaded with two hundred thousand rations, and started up. the river. It ran the blockade of Lookout Mountain to Brown's Ferry, and thus the army at Chattanooga was saved from actual famine.

At the same time, Wheeler, with about twelve hundred mounted men, had come up from Georgia, and was boldly operating between Knoxville and Chattanooga, his most notable achievement being an attack Dec. 28. upon fruitfulness under the hand of intelligent and industrious cultivators.

He instantly obeyed, and when General Kautz struck the Weldon road, as we have seen, he found these re-enforcements for Lee passing over it. A large portion of them were left south of that cutting, D. H. Hill, with 8,000 troops, had passed northward, and Beauregard, with 5,000, was south of Stony Creek Station.
