h were employed in preventing the debouchment of Sill's and Dumont's divisions (Federal) from the rough country west of Frankfort, where they were demonstrating to induce Bragg to believe that Buell's at-tack would be delivered from that direction wen, of whom 22,000 were raw troops. Under the impression that Buell was about to throw his entire army upon Smith at Frankfort, Bragg, on the 2d, ordered Polk to march with the Army of the Mississippi from Bardstown via Bloomfield toward FrankforFrankfort in order that he might strike the enemy in rear, while Kirby Smith should assail him in front. Until the 7th he remained apparently under the impression that Buell was advancing to attack Smith. But on the evening of the 7th, Gilbert, in commandhe forces under General Smith. It thus happened that General Bragg, completely misled by the mere demonstration upon Frankfort, kept more than two-thirds of the entire force under his control idly manoeuvring in a quarter where nothing could poss

t, assistant adjutant-general at Buell's headquarters. On page 660, Vol. XVI., Part I., he says: After the battle I do not think there were more than fifty thousand of the army which appeared in front of Perryville. Adding to this number the 4000 casualties sustained in the battle, would. make the entire army at and about Perryville 54,000 strong. In March, 1888, General D. C. Buell wrote to the editors: Adopting this estimate and adding Sill's Division, say 7000, which moved on the Frankfort road and did not join until after the battle (i. e., on the 11th), will make the entire army 61,000 before the battle and 57,000 after. The corps were of about equal strength. Gilbert told me recently that he estimated his corps at about 18,000 before the battle. About one-third of the whole were raw troops. Jackson's division was composed almost entirely of raw regiments.--editors. Perhaps not over one-half of these were actually engaged. General McCook, commanding the First Corps (w

sa, twenty miles to the north-east, was calling for reinforcements, as he was confident that the feint was against Perryville, and that the main attack would surely fall on him. Thus urged, General Bragg, against his own judgment, yielded, and detached two of his best divisions (Withers's and Cheatham's) to Smith's aid. The former division could not be recalled in time, and the latter arrived the morning of the battle. Having placed General Polk in command of the troops, Bragg had gone to Frankfort, the capital of the State of Kentucky, to witness the inauguration of the secessionist governor, Hawes. The inaugural was being read when the booming of cannon, shortly followed by dispatches from our cavalry outposts, announced the near presence of the enemy. As the hall was chiefly filled by the military, who hurried away to their respective commands, the governor was obliged to cut short his inaugural address. The field of Perryville was an open and beautiful rolling country, and t
