Doc. 33.-General Garfield's letter to General Rosecrans. headquarters Department Cumberland, Murfreesboroa, June 12, 1863. General: In your confidential letter of the eighth instant to the Corps and Division Commanders and Generals of cavalry of this army, there were substantially five questions propounded for their consideration and answer, viz.:-- 1. Has the enemy in our front been materially weakened by detachments to Johnson or elsewhere? 2. Can this army advance on him at this time with reasonable chances of fighting a great and successful battle P 3. Do you think an advance of our army at present likely to prevent additional reenforcements being sent against General Grant by the enemy in our front? 4. Do you think an immediate advance of this army advisable? 5. Do you think an early advance advisable? Many of.these answers are not categorical, and cannot be clearly set down either as affirmative or negative; especially in answer to the first question
hat point on the sixth and seventh, followed by a heavy cavalry force, that took the place of the infantry on the river as they were relieved, and, from their numbers, Colonel Minty reported that indication made it pretty certain that a crossing was about to be attempted. At the same time, the pontoon bridge of the enemy was moored at Chattanooga, as if to cross over troops at that point. All the crossings were closely watched, and the troops held in readiness for any movement. On the eighth, the river was cleared of all rebel troops above Chickamauga, and I directed Minty to cross over at the mouth of Sale Creek, reconnoitring the country well in his front, and move cautiously down to Harrison, always controlling one of the fords neat him, so as to cross back if it should be found necessary. Before the order could be obeyed, a heavy cavalry force confronted him on the opposite side of the river, and the crossing was not attempted. On that night, however, they all retired fr
Sumter, and the renewal of the struggle in the morning awaited with confidence. When day dawned, on the morning of the eighth, the enemy's fleet was discovered in the same position as noticed on the previous evening. About nine o'clock, the Keokuers of the forts and batteries engaged in the fight, and upon an examination in company with myself of those works on the eighth and ninth instant. The fire of the enemy was directed chiefly against Fort Sumter, at a distance of from nine to fifte General: I have the honor to submit the following report of the daily occurrences of my command, commencing on the eighth instant, on which day the enemy's iron-clad fleet appeared off the bar, and his force of transports at sea and in the Stono Runtil near daylight. It was replied to by Fort Sumter and Battery Simkins. No damage was done to the steamer. On the eighth a working party of the enemy was discovered to the east of Black Island, either building a bridge or battery. It was ope
see, with about seven hundred men, but found the enemy in too great force in his front to permit him to make any decided move. The results of these scouts in eliciting information were promptly communicated to you by telegraph. On the fourth of November I received orders by telegraph to send two of the brigades of Cheatham's division to Tyner's by railroad on the fifth, and the remaining two on the sixth, and immediately thereafter to send the two brigades of my own division. On the eighth instant I received orders from the commanding General to leave Brigadier-General Cumming to bring on my division, and report in person at army headquarters as soon as possible after the arrival of Lieutenant-General Longstreet at Sweetwater. He reached that point on the night of the ninth, and, as directed, I left Sweetwater on the morning of the tenth, arriving at Tyner's upon the same day. I am, Colonel, respectfully, Your obedient servant, C. S. Stevenson, Major-General, commanding.
n line between Ringgold and Tunnel Hill, and after skirmishing on that and the following day, on the seventh pressed back our advanced troops to Mill Creek Gap. On the same day Canty reached Resaca with his brigade, and was halted there. On the eighth, at 4 P. M., a division of Hooker's corps assaulted Dug Gap, which was bravely held by two regiments of Reynolds' Arkansas brigade, and Grigsby's brigade of Kentucky cavalry fighting on foot, until the arrival of Lieutenant-General Hardee with Grnemy advanced as usual, covered by intrenchments. Skirmishing continued until the ninth. Our infantry and artillery were brought to the south-east side of the river that night, because two Federal corps had crossed it above Powers' Ferry on the eighth, and intrenched. Lieutenant-General Stewart took command of his corps on the seventh. The character of Peachtree Creek, and the numerous fords in the Chattahoochee above its mouth, prevented my attempting to defend that part of the river. Th
nduct of Brigadier-General Green fully justified the high expectations which I had formed, based upon the previous services of this officer in the field, under my own observations. R. Taylor. Report of Colonel Major. headquarters Second cavalry brigade, near Napolronville, June 30, 1868. Major Lewis Bush, A. A. G.: Major: I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of my brigade since June tenth, pursuant to orders received from your headquarters, dated eighth instant: I left Washington on the tenth, and arrived at Morgan's Ferry, on the Atchafalaya, on the eleventh. I was detained there one day, in making preparations to cross the river, the entire command, owing to conflicting orders, not arriving until the fourteenth, and on the fifteenth I moved for Hermitage; arrived within five miles the same night, found the bridge burned across Bayou Seria, halted until daylight, then moved on Waterloo, four miles above Hermitage. The enemy were reinforce
e across the river. My command succeeded in capturing, in this affair, upwards of three hundred prisoners, nine wagons and teams, loaded with quartermaster's stores, seven of which we succeeded in bringing with us. We also captured a large number of small arms, saddles, and about ninety horses and mules, in addition to the mules that were attached to the wagons. The command was moved, by your direction, on the Carter's Valley Road creek to Blountville, where we arrived safely, on the eighth instant, bringing with us, besides captured property above mentioned, some eight hundred prisoners. Our loss in this affair is one killed, and two or three slightly wounded. I am, General, with the highest respect, Your obedient servant. J. M.
