Its occupation by the enemy would necessitate the presence of a large army on our part to prevent destructive raids and the overrunning of the cohed themselves on Edisto Island. They were nearer to us, but we were still uncertain whether it was the design of General Sherman to move first on Charleston or Savannah. About the 3d of March the garrison at Fort Pickens was reinforced by the addition of two companies, Washington Light Infantry, Companies A and B, under the n to rain before we got into position, and continued at intervals through the whole day and night.
