Division to Staunton, as a ruse, to join General Jackson; to order the latter then to march towardwhich they had destroyed on the retreat. General Jackson ordered forward a few batteries, opened fowed, and resulted in a brilliant victory for Jackson over Pope, whilst Longstreet remained with hibounded admiration, but deservedly earned for Jackson the highest appreciation and encomiums of the Corps continued to threaten the enemy, while Jackson turned his right flank and cut his communicatsphere as an outpost officer.

ositions should not be attacked, such as the one occupied by the enemy after recrossing Little Pumpkinvine creek. However, had General Johnston given me orders to attack at all hazard, I would have done so. It is true I went into battle under protest at Gettysburg, because I desired to turn Round Top Mountain; but, notwithstanding, I was true in every sense of the word to the orders of my commander till, wounded, I was borne from the field. During three yearsservice, under Generals Lee, Jackson, and Longstreet, I was never charged with being too late in any of the many battles in which I was engaged, before reporting for duty with the Army of the West. When General Johnston said as usual, I suggested that we attack the left flank of the enemy. I presume he had in remembrance Lieutenant General Polk's and my urgent recommendation that he turn upon and attack Sherman at Adairsville, just before he placed his Army upon the untenable ridge in rear of Cassville, with women and chil
ore been in finer condition — the men in a high state of discipline and full of confidence from uniform success in their engagements with the enemy. At the date of my transfer to the West, I, still under the influence of the teaching of Lee, Jackson, and Longstreet, could not but recognize a marked difference, after the crossing of the Chattahoochee river, between the troops of the Army of Tennessee and those of Virginia. My long experience and service with the latter, who formed, their liily be discerned when the troops were called upon to leave the trenches, and again give battle in the open field. During three years service in the Virginia Army, as regimental, brigade, and division commander, under the orders of Generals Lee, Jackson, and Longstreet, I was never required to throw up even temporary breastworks for the protection of my troops. The battles of Gaines's Mills, Second lyIanassas, Fredericksburg, Sharpsburg, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg, were all fought by the
ly, in order that no misapprehension be engendered. Caution and boldness are the two predominant qualities which characterize all soldiers of merit — I mean the caution and boldness tempered by wisdom, which such men as Napoleon I., Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Von Moltke, and Sir Garnet Wolseley have exhibited in so high a degree. These soldiers have shown themselves gifted with that intuition of the true warrior which rendered them bold in strategy, rapid in movement, and determined in battle.ry support without orders from his superior officer, because of his over-development of caution and his deficiency in boldness — the counterbalancing quality. Again, few men are endowed with the capacity to execute such moves as those of Stonewall Jackson, at Second Manassas, and at Chancellorsville, for the reason that, whilst en route to the rear of the enemy, the appearance of a light squad of their cavalry will cause a majority of officers to halt, form line, reconnoitre, and thus lose t
Atlanta, and to throw Hardee, the same night, entirely to the rear and flank of McPherson — as Jackson was thrown, in a similar movement,. at Chancellorsville and Second Manassas--and to initiate thivision commanders, who is capable of swinging away from the main army and attacking in rear as Jackson did at Second Manassas and Chancellorsville. The march, however, in this instance, was so shorered Hardee's move one merely within the lines of our cavalry; that no special quality, such as Jackson possessed, was required; that he had simply to follow the guides furnished him to Decatur, and Beside, those troops had been allowed almost absolute rest the entire day of the 2 Ist. Stonewall Jackson made a hard march, in order to turn Pope at Second Manassas, and again to come up in time er Johnston's nor Sherman's Armies ever experienced the weariness and hardship to which Lee and Jackson frequently subjected their troops — the fruits of which, brought to perfection by their transce

General Jackson, however, soon discovered the ruse, and mwith his brigade, ready for action. Meantime Jackson was coming up with his cavalry, when the Fedee road, which was promptly repaired. While Jackson followed in pursuit, and Lewis returned to Atairburn, in the direction of Jonesboroa. General Jackson quickly divined his object, moved rapidlyadiness to march at the word of command. Generals Jackson and Armstrong received orders to report ttect our communications in that vicinity; General Jackson was ordered to keep active scouts in the on of Greenville; General Morgan to report to Jackson for duty; Lewis's Kentucky brigade to be moun[1 more...]
e pontoon bridge in advance of the infantry, and established my headquarters that night at Pray's Church, along with General Jackson, commanding the cavalry; and on the next day I received the subjoined communication from the President: [Prias contemplated. Very respectfully and truly yours, Jefferson Davis. The morning of the 1st of October, Brigadier General Jackson advanced with the cavalry, sending a detachment at the same time to operate against the railroad between the Ch Rome, from which he will threaten Kingston, Bridgeport, Decatur, Alabama. * * * * On the 10th of October, Brigadier General Jackson, commanding the cavalry, was instructed by Colonel Mason, as follows: [no 438.] Cave Spring, October 10zey, chief of artillery, was directed to move to Jacksonville with the reserve artillery and all surplus wagons, and General Jackson was instructed to retard the enemy as much as possible, in the event of his advance from Rome. Having thus reliev
from other portions of his Memoirs it will be seen that I did not attack either Resaca, Decatur, or Nashville. My official report will also show that Major General French assaulted Allatoona, whilst under discretionary orders. Thus, in none of these instances is General Sherman correct. Touching this same accusation of rashness, put forth by my opponents, I shall merely state that the confidence reposed in me upon so many occasions, and during a service of three years, by Generals Lee, Jackson, and Longstreet, in addition to the letters of these distinguished commanders, expressive of satisfaction with my course, is a sufficient refutation of the charge. The above allegation is not more erroneous than the following inference is illogical. Van Horne, in his History of the Army of the Cumberland, speaks in commendation of my movement to the rear of Sherman, after the fall of Atlanta, but regards the circumstance as unfortunate for the Confederacy that Johnston was not summoned
28th. General Stewart was ordered to support General Lee. The engagement continued until dark, the road remaining in our possession. On the 27th July I received information that the enemy's cavalry was moving round our right with the design of interrupting our communication tion with Macon. The next day a large cavalry force also crossed the Chattahoochee river at Campbellton, moving round our left. Major General Wheeler was ordered to move upon the force on the right, while Brigadier General Jackson, with Hawson's and Ross's brigades, was sent to look after those moving on the left. I also dispatched Lewis's brigade of infantry down the Macon Railroad to a point about where they would probably strike the road. The force on the left succeeded in reaching the road, tearing up an inconsiderable part of the track. It was the design of the enemy to unite his forces at the railroad, but in this he was defeated. The movement was undertaken by the enemy on a grand scale, having ca
