ant-General Smith's, and it is supposed that an equal force is on its way from Arkansas. No more troops can be taken from General Bragg without the danger of enabntial to its safety ought, therefore, I respectfully suggest, to be taken from Arkansas; to return after the crisis in this department. I firmly believe, however,ely distributed to be in condition for the offensive. We have no news from Arkansas, which proves, I think, that we are to get no help from that side of the Missi. We require about twenty thousand men, the number you have asked for from Arkansas, to make headway against both Grant and Sherman. Will the great victory at Fr have a message sent across the river to learn if there are any movements from Arkansas connected with ours. J. E. Johnston, General.

uford receives General Pemberton's orders. Do it at Atlanta, as well as Chattanooga. J. E. Johnston, General. Jackson, May 13, 1863. Hon. J. A. Seddon, Richmond: I arrived this evening, finding the enemy in force between this place and General Pemberton, cutting off the communication. I am too late. J. E. Johnston, General. Jackson, May 13, 1863. Lieutenant-General Pemberton: I have lately arrived, and learn that Major-General Sherman is between us, with four divisions, at Clinton. It is important to reestablish communication that you may be reenforced. If practicable, come up on his rear at once. To beat such a detachment would be of immediate value; the troops here could cooperate. All the strength you can quickly assemble should be brought. Time is all-important. Your obedient servant, J.

y be resisted by all the force of the enemy, the troops will be disposed as follows: The First Division (General Tyler), with the exception of Richardson's brigade, will, at half-past 2 o'clock in the morning precisely, be at the Warrenton turnpike to threaten the passage of the bridge, but will not open fire until full daybreak. The Second Division (Hunter's) will move from its camp at two o'clock in the morning precisely, and, led by Captain Woodbury of the Engineers, will, after passing Cub Run, turn to the right, and pass the Bull Run stream above the ford at Sudley's Spring, and, then turning down to the left, descend the stream and clear away the enemy who may be guarding the lower ford and bridge. It will then bear off to the right, and make room for the succeeding division. The Third Division (Heintzelman's) will march at half-past 2 in the morning, and will follow the road taken by the Second Division, but will cross at the lower ford, after it has been turned as above; an

in the battles of the 16th and 17th were bivouacked in the rear of the intrenchments. During these battles the troops of Major-General Forney's division were disposed as follows: Brigadier-General Hebert's brigade occupied the line along the Yazoo River, from Haines's Bluff to the Mississippi, including the approaches by Chickasaw Bayou; Brigadier-General Moore's brigade, with the Mississippi State troops, under General Harris, attached (about six hundred), guarded the front at Warrenton and m this position with such morale and materiel as to be of further service to the Confederacy. While the council of war was assembled, the guns of the enemy opened on the works, and it was at the same time reported that they were crossing the Yazoo River at Brandon's Ferry, above Snyder's Mills. I have decided to hold Vicksburg as long as possible, with the firm hope that the Government may yet be able to assist me in keeping this obstruction to the enemy's free navigation of the Mississippi
Baton Rouge (Louisiana, United States) (search for this): chapter 15
eneral Smith's force in East Tennessee is not more than sufficient to prevent raids. Lieutenant-General Pemberton informs me that there are forty-two thousand artillery and infantry in this department; of which he regards twenty-four thousand as absolutely necessary for the immediate defense of Port Hudson and Vicksburg. Grant's army is estimated at thirty-eight thousand; that which attacked Vicksburg at thirty thousand; and Banks is supposed to be assembling twenty-five thousand at Baton Rouge. Should a large portion of these forces act upon this river, they may invest our two positions, which would fall in the course of time, unless we have an active army to break the investment. The condition of the country and the breaking of railroads by our cavalry have compelled Grant to fall back, but we must expect him to advance again as soon as practicable. Should Banks and Sherman move at the same time, we could not oppose such a combination with our present forces. The cou

Mulberry Island (Virginia, United States) (search for this): chapter 15
act that, after the Army of Northern Virginia arrived at the vicinity of Yorktown, application was made to have stopped the supplies from Richmond, except upon my requisition. Very few stores were at the post of Yorktown, and transports could not with safety reach the post. A portion of the troops drew regularly from Yorktown. Provisions for the regular supply were hauled in wagons from King's-Mill Landing on James River. A few days' supply for a division was kept upon a sloop near Mulberry Island. The reserve for the army was kept at Williamsburg, and issued to the troops as they passed. And the best evidence of no loss at this main depot is the fact that the last divisions were unable to get a day's rations. The small depot at Gloucester Point lost little or nothing. The meat from there came to the army at Baltimore Cross-roads. Small amount, at Jamestown Island, not removed, of little value. To sum up, then: the amount of loss sustained by the department by the withdr
