3 General Cheatham says, in his Report: ‘At the close of the day, a part of my command remained on the field, and a portion returned to our encampment of the night previous.’ In a letter to General Beauregard, dated Nashville, Tenn., November 27th, 1876, General Cheatham uses the following language: ‘At dusk, on the evening of the 6th, I was on the extreme left of our army, near the river. I recollect that General Cleburne's division was on my right. The second brigade of my division (Stephens's), with a portion of Johnson's (my first), retired to our camp of the night previous—Saturday night. This camp was near General Polk's headquarters, where the enemy's cavalry horses were killed by our artillery, on Friday, and several miles—at least three—in front of Mickey's.’
