1 ‘The intention, so far as I can learn, was to send a column direct from Culpeper to the Potomac, and Early to advance at the same time from Martinsburg. This was frustrated by Early being compelled to fall back, and your operations on the north side of the James.’—Sheridan to Grant, August, 20.
2 See Vol. II., pp. 507 and 510. ‘The receipt of this despatch was very important to me, as I possibly would have remained in uncertainty as to the character of the force coming in on my flank and rear, until it attacked the cavalry.’—Sheridan's Official Report.
