ve as its flanks were protected by the river.
Gen. Hood, in a personal reminiscence of this conflict, fairly said:
The works of the enemy were so hastily constructed that, while he had a slight abatis in front of a part of his line, there was none on his extreme right.
Yet, slight as they were, these defenses were of incalculable value.
A veteran who fought behind them said, Such a line at the Chickamauga would have given us a victory. ‘T is sad that, after all we have spent on West Point, we should have had to learn this simple lesson at a cost of 200,000 lives and Two Billions of money.
The Turks had mastered it when they last defended Silistria against the Russians, years ago.
Hood's army, arriving later, was not ready for the onset till 4 P. M.; when, at the word of command, the charging lines swept on.
Hood had delayed the attack till all his force could be brought up; intending to crush in our front at the first onset by the sheer weight of his assault.
