fate of all Foragers. Whereupon Sherman, it is said, directed immediate retaliation, and is reported as having delivered himself of these heroic sentiments: Harper's Pictorial History of the Rebellion, Vol. II, p. 119. We have a perfect right to the products of the country we overrun, and may collect them by forage or otherwise. Let the people know that the war is now against them, because their army flees before us and do not defend the country as they should. It is monstrous for Wheeler and Beauregard and such vain heroes to talk of warring against women and children. If they claim to be men they should defend their women and children and prevent us reaching their homes. Was there ever anything more false, more atrocious, and meaner than this pitiful excuse by Sherman of his barbarity? Taunting our men because they were not there to defend their women and children, when Grant himself had just declared that we were robbing the cradle and the grave to fill our ranks aga

obert E. Lee and Braxton Bragg died since the cessation of hostilities. There were two generals with temporary rank—E. Kirby Smith and John B. Hood. The former lives, and the latter, in dying, commended his orphans to the care of the soldiers of the Confederacy. Twenty-one officers were complimented with the grade of lieutenant-general. The only survivors are Generals James Longstreet, E. Kirby Smith, D. H. Hill, Stephen D. Lee, Wade Hampton, Jubal A. Early, Alexander P. Stewart, Joseph Wheeler, Simon B. Buckner, and John B. Gordon. O the one hundred who were commissioned as major-generals in Confederate service, if my information be correct, only forty-five are now numbered among the living. Of four hundred and eighty who rose to the grade of brigadier-general, an inquiry, by no means partial, inclines me to the belief that there are not two hundred in life. With the exception of Thomas H. Watts, of Alabama, Joseph E. Brown, of Georgia, Zebulon B. Vance, of North Caro

near where we had entered in the forenoon. * * * Colonel Collart was able to join us at that place, and ordered the regiment a few hundred yards further back, where we spent the night. —(Rebellion Records, Volume X, Part I, page 546.) Colonel Joseph Wheeler (commanding Nineteenth Alabama, Jackson's brigade, Withers's division) states, that having been ordered to charge the enemy with his regiment to the river, after passing through the deep ravine below the lowest camp, the regiment was haltammunition soon after we took this camp. He did not return, and is supposed to have been taken prisoner. —(Ibid, page 562.) The foregoing statements, especially of the three brigade commanders, Chalmers, Jackson, and Deas, as well as of Colonel Wheeler (a graduate of West Point) and Colonel Moore, certainly give such a picture of the condition of their several brigades and regiments that, had General Withers been brought before a court-martial for the statement in his official report, mad

r cent. Croxton's brigade, of the same division, made up of five regiments, lost 938. Of Van DerVeer's regiments, the Ninth Ohio lost fifty per cent., the Thirty-fifth Ohio a small fraction less than fifty per cent., the Second Minnesota 192, or exactly fifty per cent., and the Eighty-seventh Indiana about half of its number. General Wood lost 1,070 in two brigades. These figures become the more significant when compared with the statement of losses in the world's noted battles. General Wheeler, the distinguished Confederate cavalry commander, thus vividly presented this question at the gathering of the Society of the Army of the Cumberland and Confederates at Chattanooga in 1881: Waterloo was one of the most desperate and bloody fields chronicled in European history, yet Wellington's casualties were less than twelve per cent., his losses being 2,432 killed and 9,528 wounded out of 90,000 men; while at Shiloh, the first great battle in which General Grant was engaged, on
