The two first lines can certainly not be used for lines of retreat by the Union army; and the rebels, by gaining the third side with a superior force, would entirely cut the Army A from the Northern States, and force it, in the event of its trying to escape, to open its way with the bayonet. If this should not succeed, the Army A would be obliged to surrender. To execute this plan, which would be similar to the movements of Napoleon at Marengo, Ulm, and Jena, the rebels would have to leave a strong corps of observation opposite to Washington, and with their main force to cross the Potomac above this town, to erect some field works to cover their tete-de-pont in case of retreat, and then advance along the Potomac toward the capital.

The arrangement of the columns is similar to that on a flank march. Ney formed the flank guard, and Soult the advanced guard; the different corps were from 5 to 10 miles distant from each oth
