P. for said county, E. rman's use of them, after these mountain defiles fell into his possession. When en route to Tennessee, during the campaign in the Fall of 1864, the Confederate Army, after having captured the troo
partment had been anxious that an offensive campaign into Tennessee and Kentucky be initiated in the early Spring of 1864, anroops, then in Mississippi, and Longstreet's Corps, in East Tennessee. Johnston, at the appointed time, was expected to mov to say necessity, of reclaiming the provision country of Tennessee and Kentucky; and from my knowledge of the country and pe from Mississippi and Alabama, Longstreet's Corps from East Tennessee, and a sufficient number from Beauregard's command in join Polk's Army and Longstreet's Corps on the march into Tennessee, gave him assurance that the authorities in Richmond woulmy heart was fixed upon going to the front, and regaining Tennessee and Kentucky. I have also had a long talk with General Hfrom our country, I am not able to comprehend. To regain Tennessee would be of more value to us than half a dozen victories ope that we would finally advance, and join Longstreet in Tennessee. At the same time, I was not unmindful of the great dang
Polk, and myself, with map and measurement of angles of the position in question: New York, June 25th, 1874. Dr. W. M. Polk, 288 Fifth Avenue, New York. Dear Sir:--In reply to your note of the 2oth inst., asking me to give you my recollection of the circumstances in regard to the retreat of the Confederate Armies from Cassville, Georgia, to the south side of the Etowah river, I will state the facts as connected with myself, as follows: At the time when the Confederate Armies of Tennessee and Mississippi, under the command of General J. E. Johnston, and the Federal Army under General Sherman, were manoeuvring in the neighborhood of Cassville, I had nearly completed my journey from Demopolis, Alabama, to that town to join Lieutenant General Polk, commanding the Army of Mississippi, who was with General Johnston in that vicinity. I had crossed the country in company with a part of that command. I arrived at Cassville railway station about half-past 3 or four o'clock in the
eral J. B. Hood. General:--In your favor of the 17th inst., you ask my opinion of the general effect of entrenchments upon an Army. My experience during the recent war was nearly equally divided in serving with and without entrenchments. My service with the Army of North Virginia ended after the battle of Sharpsburg--then in the campaigns in Mississippi, involving the fall of Vicksburg--again in the campaign in Georgia, involving the fall of Atlanta, and also the last campaign into Tennessee. Entrenchments were generally used in my service in the West. They were not used in Virginia up to the time I was transferred West. I am free to say that I consider it a great misfortune to any army to have to resort to entrenchments; its morale is necessarily impaired from their constant use. Troops once sheltered from fire behind works, never feel comfortable unless in them. The security of entrenchments is a constant subject of discussion by troops who use them. It is a matter o
ve up Atlanta without a fight, but it may be so. Let us develop the truth. W. T. Sherman, Major General Commanding. My predecessor had evidently another scheme in reserve. General Forrest was required, with five thousand (5000) cavalry in Tennessee, to destroy Sherman's communications with Nashville,--at least, in so far as to hinder Sherman from receiving sufficient supplies for the maintenance of his Army. General Wheeler's cavalry force numbered over ten thousand (10,000,), and was cocannot conceive in what manner General Forrest was expected to accomplish this object with only five thousand (5000) menespecially, when Sherman had a large force of cavalry attached to his own Army, as well as another large body of this arm in Tennessee; had erected block houses at every important bridge and culvert, and had stationed infantry at fixed points along the entire line between Nashville and Atlanta, forming, it might be said, a chain of sentinels. The Federals had at their disposa
fficulties of the situation battle of the 20th of July. Notwithstanding the manifold difficulties and trials which beset me at the period I was ordered to relieve General Johnston, and which, because of unbroken silence on my part, have been the occasion of much injustice manifested in my regard, I formed no intention, till the appearance of General Sherman's Memoirs, to enter fully into the details of the siege of Atlanta, the campaign to the Alabama line, and that which followed into Tennessee. A feeling of reluctance to cause heart-burnings within the breast of any Confederate, who fulfilled his duty to the best of his ability, has, hitherto, deterred me from speaking forth the truth. Since, however, military movements with which my name is closely connected, have been freely and publicly discussed by different authors, whose representations have not always been accurate, I feel compelled to give an account of the operations of the Army of Tennessee, whilst under my directi
see river, and also that General Forrest be ordered with the whole of his available force into Tennessee for the same object. I intended General Wheeler should operate, in the first instance, south eastworks, and, at a later period, his expressed disapproval of the contemplated campaign into Tennessee. In accordance with my determination to attempt, with cavalry, the destruction of Sherman'sred mules and one thousand horses; he destroyed, in addition, about fifty miles of railroad in Tennessee. General Forrest, with his usual energy, struck shortly afterwards the Federal line of suppimpossible with their restricted number of cavalry, and the former, finally, was driven out of Tennessee by superior forces. General Sherman, in relation to this movement, says: Sherman's Memoirs, vol. II, page 130. The rebel General Wheeler was still in Middle Tennessee, threatening our railroads, and rumors came that Forrest was on his way from Mississippi to the same theatre, for the
r, forty-five hundred (4500) cavalry were absent with Wheeler, in Tennessee. This latter circumstance accounts for my statement, subsequentlarrative of the campaign to the Alabama line, and thereafter into Tennessee.Total Army 23,053 33,393 36,426 80,125 86,982 Respectfully orgia, April 3d, 1866.

General Hood, Commanding Confederate Army. General:--I have deemed it to the interest of the United States that the citizens now residing in Atlanta should remove, those who prefer it to go South, and the rest North. For the latter I can provide food and transportation to points of their election in Tennessee, Kentucky, or further North. For the former I can provide transportation by cars as far as Rough and Ready, and also wagons; but, that their removal may be made with as little discomfort as possible, it will be necessary for you to help the families from Rough and Ready to the cars at Lovejoy's. If you consent, I will undertake to remove all the families in Atlanta who prefer to go South to Rough and Ready, with all their moveable effects, viz., clothing, trunks, reasonable furniture, bed
