1 ‘On the 20th of April,’ says the report of Steele's chief engineer, ‘we received a supply train of ten days rations [from Pine Bluff]. This train was immediately sent back for a fresh supply, leaving Camden on the 23d, protected by an entire brigade of infantry, four pieces of artillery, and a proper proportion of cavalry. . . . Scouting parties had gone up and down the east bank of the Ouachita for 30 miles, before it started, and no evidence of the enemy was seen.’
