ardstown, he slackened his march, for he knew well that the destruction of the railroad and telegraphic wires would paralyze the movements of the detached bodies of troops scattered all around him. In fact, these various detachments were trying in vain to approach each other, while avoiding a serious conflict with an enemy superior in numbers to each of them. On the 29th, whilst Harlan's brigade was reaching Elizabethtown, Morgan was approaching Bardstown, and his scouts were already in Fredericksburg. But fearing to be caught between the troops of Baird at Danville and those of Hoskins at Lebanon, he suddenly retraced his steps, passed through Hayesville and encamped at Rolling Fork. On the 31st he crossed the Muldraugh Hills, which lie south of Lebanon, and re-entered the valley of Green River. Baird, at Danville, made no effort to meet him; Woolford, at Greensburg, seemed to have no suspicion of his being so near him at Campbellville. Hoskins alone started in pursuit of him wi

It was under the operation of these new measures, affecting the whole able-bodied population of the Confederacy, that the armies were reorganized and prepared for the sanguinary campaigns of Murfreesborough and Vicksburg in the West, and of Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg in the East. It may be said that these campaigns mark the greatest effort made by the Confederates in defence of the cause which they upheld with so much vigor. The troops enrolled at that period, in fact, fl of the reconstituted republic, or by the triumph of this institution over the largest portion of the American continent under the protection of the Confederacy, aggrandized and allpowerful. At the period where we left off the recital of military events after the terrible defeat of the Federals at Fredericksburg, their serious disaster before Vicksburg and their fruitless victory of Murfreesborough, the most sanguine optimists of the North were beginning to doubt the success of their cause.
