h, Mr. Schenck, from the Military Committee, reported back the resolution with a substitute, enlarging its scope so as to include the campaign from Chattanooga to Atlanta. The substitute provided: That the thanks of the people and of the Congress of the United States be tendered to Major-General William T. Sherman, and through him to the officers and men under his command, for their gallantry and good conduct in their campaign from Chattanooga to Atlanta, and the triumphal march thence through Georgia to Savannah, terminating in the capture and occupation of that city; and that the President cause a copy of the resolution to be engrossed and forwarded to Gemy, I think we had better do nothing about it. I hope we shall act upon this resolution without a reference. When General Sherman, said Mr. Clark, cut loose from Atlanta, and marched upon the coast, it was said that he violated all the proprieties and rules of the military service. I would be glad, in this instance, to violate th
Doc. 25.-Southern Reconstruction. Governor T. H. Watts's letter. State of Georgia, Quartermaster General's office, Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 19, 1863. Sir: I herewith enclose you for publication a letter from Hon. T. H. Watts, governor elect of Alabama, which explains, in terms unmistakable and unequivocal, his views on that foul heresy called reconstruction. Never were sentiments more pregnant with patriotism and devotion to our struggling cause penned. Every true son of the South wilst, we shall be free. Ira R. Foster. This letter was originally addressed to the Editor of the Atlanta Intelligencer. Confederate States of America, Department of justice, Richmond, September 12, 1863. Hon. Ira R. Foster, Q. M. Gen. of Ga., Atlanta, Ga.: dear Sir: I have to-day received your letter of the first instant, forwarded to me from Montgomery, Alabama, and hasten to reply. You say that my name, since the Alabama election, has been freely used by many in connection with reconstruc
duty to acknowledge in grateful terms the deep indebtededness of the army to the Hospital Relief Associations, which so promptly and so generously pressed forward their much-needed assistance. Under the admirable management of their officers in Atlanta, we were soon furnished with every necessary and comfort, and stores continued to arrive until notice was given that our wants were all supplied. The officers of my staff, persona] and general, served me on this field and on the arduous marches were two hundred and four killed, fifteen hundred and thirty-nine wounded, six missing--making in all one thousand seven hundred and forty-nine.

Johnston) had not failed to obey the positive orders to attack General Grant, which Mr. Seddon, then Secretary of War, had sent. If the same officer, who was upheld in command by the anti-administration party, had vigorously attacked Sherman at Atlanta when directed, the fortunes of war would have been changed, and Sherman hurled back to Nashville over a sterile and wasted country — his retreat little less disastrous than Napoleon's from Moscow. He did not do so, and was relieved; General Hoo their overthrow whenever history comes to be truly written. In the statement this extract contains, that General J. E. Johnston failed to obey positive orders or directions to attack General Grant at Vicksburg, in 1863, or General Sherman at Atlanta, in 1864, there is a mistake, caused, no doubt, by Dr. Craven having misapprehended his distinguished patient, with whom, in his misfortunes, I know no one sympathizes more truly than General Johnston. I venture to make this correction, in just
Looking at a map of the Confederate States, it will be seen that the most injurious blow which the enemy could strike at present would be to take possession of Atlanta — thus isolating still more completely the Trans-Mississippi States, and detaching, in a great measure, the States of Mississippi and Alabama from the Eastern porderacy. It would also be a deplorable injury to the energetic, populous State of Georgia, and cripple the resources of that people. We should, therefore, regard Atlanta as the actual objective point of the large force which the enemy has concentrated about Chattanooga, and the one which we must, at all cost, prevent him from obtahing all military movements. Depots of subsistence, munitions of war, ambulances, wagons, horses, etc., should be established at certain points, not too far from Atlanta, for rapid concentration at the proper time. Meantime, whatsoever troops that could safely be withdrawn from the departments already indicated, should be quickly
