e same destination; and delegated to Major-General Thomas full power over all the troops subject to my command, except the four corps with which I designed to move into Georgia. This gave him the two divisions under A. J. Smith, then in Missouri, but en route for Tennessee, the two corps named, and all the garrisons in Tennessee, as also all the cavalry of my military division, except one division under Brigadier-General Kilpatrick, which was ordered to rendezvous at Marietta. Brevet Major-General Wilson had arrived from the army of the Potomac, to assume command of the cavalry of my army, and I dispatched him back to Nashville with all dismounted detachments, and orders as rapidly as possible to collect the cavalry serving in Kentucky and Tennessee, to mount, organize, and equip them, and report to Major-General Thomas for duty. These forces I judged would enable General Thomas to defend the railroad from Chattanooga back, including Nashville and Decatur, and give him an army wi

Taliaferro, Twenty-third Virginia, commanding, was f arrived, and I received orders from the General to look well to my left flank, and to report at once to General Taliaferro for reinforcements. Accordingly, Captain Wilson, Assistant Adjutant-General Second brigade, and Lieutenant White, Acting Aid-de-camp, were sent in different parts of the field to insure an early interview we among civilized nations. To the members of my staff all praise is due for their bravery and efficiency in the discharge of every duty. They consisted of Captain Wilson, Assistant Adjutant-General; Lieutenant Dabney, Aid-de-camp; and Lieutenant White, First Virginia battalion, Acting Aid-de-camp. For further particulars, the
