exclaimed, Ah! General, the enemy is a long time finding us; if he does not succeed soon, we must go in search of him. I assured him I was never so well prepared or more willing. A few days thereafter, we were ordered to Gettysburg, and to march with all possible speed. The following letter, which I addressed General Longstreet in 1875, gives, up to the hour I was wounded and borne from the field, an account of the part taken by my command in the great battle which ensued: New Orleans, La., June 28th, 1875. General James Longstreet:--General, I have not responded earlier to your letter of April 5th, by reason of pressure of business, which rendered it difficult for me to give due attention to the subject in regard to which you have desired information. You are correct in your assumption that I failed to make a report of the operations of my division around Suffolk, Va., and of its action in the battle of Gettysburg, in consequence of a wound which I received in this
nine (66,139), instead of sixty-four thousand (64,000), of all arms, as stated by General Wigfall. The following letter, from Major General Wheeler affords additional evidence of the correctness of the foregoing estimate of cavalry: New Orleans, La., June 1st, 1866. Dear General:--In reply to your inquiry as to the aggregate number of officers and enlisted men, mounted and dismounted, I could have thrown into action at any time prior to the siege of Atlanta, had I been notified that all in the Senate Chamber of the Confederate States. This Senator, in his estimate of the strength of Polk's Corps, Johnston's Narrative, page 591. says it amounted to less than nineteen thousand (19,000) men. Colonel Douglas West, of New Orleans, La., who was at that time Assistant Adjutant General of Polk's Corps, says on November 13th, 1869, in answer to a letter from me in regard to the strength of that corps when it joined General Johnston, We bore on the rolls an aggregate of about
eneral Johnston to deliver battle, which orders, I reiterate, were never issued to me, for, be it remembered, I had merely been authorized to carry out my own suggestion. The following letters from Major J. E. Austin, one of the most gallant and efficient officers of the Army of Tennessee, and from the Honorable Taylor Beattie, of the State of Louisiana, both gentlemen of honor and prominent position, show whether or not the report I made to General Johnston was manifestly untrue. New Orleans, May 26th, 1874. My Dear General:--In the disposition of the Army under General Joseph E. Johnston, at Cassville, Georgia, as he states, for attack, I commanded the extreme right of the skirmish line in front of your corps. In your movement to the north, across the open field, on that day, I covered your front and right, and my command was left to observe the enemy when a part of your corps was thrown across the Canton road. The enemy were in force in my front, with artillery and inf
the account of this extraordinary project, and, forthwith, addressed the following letter to Major General Gustavus W. Smith, who commanded the Georgia State troops previous to General Johnston's removal, and during the siege of Atlanta: New Orleans, January 17th, 1874. General G. W. Smith, Frankfort, Ky. General:--Having occasion to refer to your official report of the operations of the Georgia Militia around Atlanta, I find you were assigned the command of these troops the 1st of Junuthwest to destroy the railroad to Macon. Your views upon this important subject, I should be pleased to have at your earliest convenience. Yours truly, J. B. Hood. Frankfort, Kentucky, January 23d, 1874. General John B. Hood, New Orleans, La. General:--Your letter of the 17th inst. is received. In answer to your first inquiry I have to say that, in my opinion, you were furnished with all the State forces that the Governor of Georgia, could by the use of extraordinary powers b
Army of Northern Virginia. Shortly after my return to New Orleans I resolved to obtain from Mr. Conrad a written statement of this important fact. He had, however, left for Washington. Thereupon I addressed him the following letter: New Orleans, May 19th, 1874. Honorable C. M. Conrad, Washington, D. C. my Dear Sir:--I called at your office this morning to ask that you give me a memorandum of the statement of Mr. McFarland to you, in regard to General Johnston's giving up the city of complaint to him and his friends. I am sure that on considering the matter you will come to the same conclusion. Very truly yours, C. M. Conrad. I subjoin my reply: Niagara, Ontario, July 1st, 1874. Honorable C. M. Conrad, New Orleans, La. Dear Sir:--I received a few days ago your letter of the 13th ult., which was forwarded from New Orleans. Its consequent delay in reaching me will in part account for my tardiness in replying. Whilst I fully appreciate your unwillingne
e would, doubtless, have ordered and acted differently. Before proceeding further, I will produce additional evidence from Federal sources, in order to make still more manifest the opportunity which was lost to the Confederate arms on the 29th of November, at Spring Hill. Shortly after the war, I met in New Orleans Colonel Fullerton, of the United States Army; he was Schofield's adjutant general at the time of these events, in connection with which he wrote me the following: New Orleans, La., October 20th, 1865. to General Hood. General:--The only body of United States troops on the battlefield of Spring Hill, Tennessee, on the 29th of November, 1864, was the Second Division of the Fourth Army Corps. I think the division was less than four thousand (4000) strong. There were no other United States troops in or about Spring Hill on that day but one or two hundred cavalrymen and perhaps fifty or sixty infantrymen (post troops). The rest of General Schofield's Army was in
