easy defense by a small command, and yet affords admirable camping-ground for 100,000 men. On the trial of Colonel Thomas Worthington, Forty-sixth Ohio Volunteers, who had severely criticised General Sherman, the latter testifies: Vide Sherman's historical raid, by Boynton, p. 29; also Shiloh, p. 22, by Colonel Worthington. I will not insult General Smith's memory by criticising his selection of a field. It was not looked to so much for defense as for ground on which an army could ll it would have been difficult on that ground to have selected any other than strong defensible positions. On Colonel Worthington's trial (vide Boynton's volume, already quoted, page 28), Sherman testifies, under oath, thus: He (Colonel WoColonel Worthington) says, A slight abattis might have prevented an attack. What business was it of his whether his superior officer invited an attack or not? The Army Regulations will show him that no fortification can be made, except under order of the co

I suppose Colonel McDowell and myself had become tired of his constant prognoor weeks and months we had heard all sorts of reports, just as we do now. For weeks old women had reported that Beauregard was coming, sometimes with 100,000, sometimes with 800,000, when, in fact, he did not leave Corinth until after even Colonel Worthington had been alarmed for safety. Sherman says, further on, that, after the reconnaissance on Friday afternoon- We knew that we had the elements of an army in our front, but did not know its strength or destination.

of the rest of his army. I had my headquarters on the Continental. Among my colonels I had a strange character Thomas Worthington, colonel of the Forty-sixth Ohio. He was a graduate of West Point, of the class of 1827; was, therefore, older thaumn, but pushed on and reached Savannah a day before the rest of my division. When I reached that place, I found that Worthington had landed his regiment, and was flying about giving orders, as though he were commander-in-chief. I made him get bact Brigade, composed of the Sixth Iowa, Colonel J. A. McDowell; Fortieth Illinois, Colonel Hicks; Forty-sixth Ohio, Colonel Worthington; and the Morton battery, Captain Behr, on the extreme right, guarding the bridge on the Purdy road over Owl Creek.rom his horse and injured, and his brigade was not in position on Monday morning.

Prentiss's division was composed of the Twelfth Michigan, Sixteenth Wisconsin, Eighteenth Wisconsin, Eighteenth Missouri, Twenty-third Missouri, Twenty-fifth Missouri, and Sixty-first Illinois. The battle on Sunday, April 6. our men surprised. Almost at dawn, Prentiss's pickets were driven in; a very little later Hildebrand's (in Sherman's division) were; and the enemy were in the camps almost as soon as were the pickets themselves.

events were fresh in his mind, General Sherman was sworn as a witness in the trial of Colonel Thos. Worthington, Forty-sixth Ohio Volunteers, who had severely criticized the management of the formeras in force in his immediate front. General W. T. Sherman, sworn and examined: He (Colonel Worthington) says a slight abattis might have prevented an attack. What business was it of his whethosition was ever held by an army. Therefore, on Friday, two days before the battle, when Colonel Worthington was so apprehensive, I knew there was no hostile party within six miles, though there washe South with their best leaders. On Friday, the 4th, nor officer, nor soldier, not even Colonel Worthington looked for an attack, as I can prove. On Friday, April 4th, our pickets were disposed ith three hundred thousand; when, in fact, he did not leave Corinth until after even Colonel Worthington had been alarmed for safety. As soon as I heard the cannon, I and my staff were in the saddl
y inch of ground. Just at this time an order was received from the commanding General to withdraw the forces beyond the enemy's fire. In addition to the statements and opinions cited above, I will introduce from a recent publication by Thomas Worthington, late colonel of the Forty-sixth Regiment of Ohio Volunteers, two statements showing the relative condition of the two armies in the afternoon of the day of battle. It may be proper to say that Colonel Worthington was regularly educated asColonel Worthington was regularly educated as a soldier, and had seen service in Mexico. He quotes Colonel Geddes of the Eighth Iowa Volunteers as follows: About 3 P. M. all communications with the river (landing) ceased, and it became evident to me that the enemy was turning the right and left flanks of our army. . . . About 2 P. M. the whole Union right, comprising the Forty-sixth Ohio, which had held that flank two hours or more, was driven back in disorder, and the Confederate flanking force cut the center off from the landing
