1 Two telegrams of Gen. J. E. Johnston from Jackson, Miss., may be cited here. No. 1, to Pemberton at Vicksburg, January 1, 1863: ‘General Gardner is full of confidence.’ No. 2, to Gardner, January 2, 1863, ‘I am told you are confident with your present force. I hope that is so, for we cannot afford more men than you want’ Gardner retained this confidence until May 10th, when a letter from General Johnston instructed him that his duty lay in evacuation rather than heroism.
