1 General Sherman was evidently unacquainted with the contents of these despatches when he wrote in his Memoirs, Vol. II., page 166, that November 2nd ‘was the first time that General Grant assented to the march to the sea.’ The telegrams to Halleck and Stanton he probably never saw, and those to himself, of the 11th and 12th of October, appear not to have reached him. The wires were cut between his army and the North at this time. See page 153.
