The rest of the brigade were moved by cars to Decatur, arriving there the same day at 8 p. m. April 15, the brigade, except guard for baggage train, was moved to Tuscumbia, Ala., arriving there April 16, at 11 p. m.

Scott, had constituted, up to this time, the entire defensive force of the Federal metropolis. The Legislature of Maryland convened in extra session, in accordance with Gov. Hicks's call, not at Annapolis, but at Frederick — far from any Union force, but within easy striking distance of the Confederates at Harper's Ferry. Gov. Hicks, in his Message (April 27th), recapitulated most of the facts just related, adding that Gen. Butler, before landing at Annapolis, asked permission to do so, but was refused. He said: The people of Annapolis, though greatly exasperated, acting under counsel of the most prudent citizens, refrained from molesting or obstructing the passage of the troops through the city. Again: Notwithstanding the fact that our most learned and intelligent citizens admit the right of the Government to transport its troops across o

Railroads and steamboats were mainly employed in transporting men and munitions to the line of the Potomac or that of the Ohio. Never before had any Twenty Millions of people evinced such absorbing and general enthusiasm. But for the deplorable lack of arms, Half a Million volunteers might have been sent into camp before the ensuing Fourth of July. President Lincoln issued, on the 27th of April, a proclamation announcing the blockade of the coast of Virginia and North Carolina; due evidence having been afforded that Virginia had formally and North Carolina practically adhered to the Rebellion. Some weeks were required to collect and fit out the vessels necessary for the blockade of even the chief ports of the Rebel States; but the month of May Richmond and Norfolk, the 8th; Charleston, the 11th; New Orleans and Mobile, the 27th; Savannah, the 28th. saw this undertaking so f
to join his land forces below, and to conduct them, under Weitzel's piloting, through the shallow bays and bayous in the rear of Fort St. Philip, landing them from his row-boats on the first firm ground that he reached above the fort; thence occupying the levee and throwing a detachment across the river so as completely to isolate both forts and their garrisons. While he was effecting this, Commander Porter, with his mortar-fleet below, resumed and continued the bombardment, sending up April 27. a flag of truce to demand a surrender, which was refused; but, next day, 250 of the garrison of Fort Jackson, having heard, or inferred from the blackened fragments floating down the river, that New Orleans was captured, refused to fight longer, and, spiking the guns on the upper side of the fort, sallied out and surrendered themselves to Gen. Butler's pickets. Lt.-Col. Higgins, who commanded the forts, seeing that all was lost, now made haste to accept the favorable terms of capitulation

Reynolds pushed out, April 20. with his division and two brigades of cavalry, to McMinnville; whence he drove out Morgan, talking 130 prisoners, destroying a large amount of Rebel store;, and returning April 26. without loss. Col. Watkins, 6th Kentucky, with 500 cavalry, surprised April 27. a Rebel camp on the Carter's creek pike, 8 miles from Franklin; capturing 140 men, 250 horses and mules, and destroying a large amount of camp equipage. Col. A. D. Streight, 51st Indiana, at the head of 1,800 cavalry, was next dispatched April 29. by Rosecrans to the rear of Bragg's army, with instructions to cut the railroads in northwestern Georgia, and-destroy generally all depots of supplies and manufactories of arms, clothing, &c.

Grafton, W. Va., where it remained until April, 1862. During the spring of 1862 it served in Schenck's Brigade, and was present with that command at Manassas,--then McLean's (2d) Brigade, Schenck's (1st) Division, Sigel's Corps; the casualties in the regiment at that battle amounted to 14 killed, 60 wounded, and 21 missing, The Corps remained in Virginia, encamped near Centreville, during McClellan's Antietam campaign, and then went into winter-quarters at Stafford Court House. On the 27th of April it broke camp for Chancellorsville, the brigade being then in Devens's (1st) Division, Eleventh Corps; the loss of the regiment in that battle was 9 killed, 87 wounded, and 57 missing,--out of 491 present. At Gettysburg the Fifty-fifth was in Smith's (2d) Brigade, Steinwehr's (2d) Division, Eleventh Corps; casualties, 6 killed, 31 wounded, and 12 missing. In September, 1863, the regiment accompanied its Corps to Tennessee, where it fought at Missionary Ridge. In April, 1864, the Eleven

s that by the Long Bridges. In these marches the right column reached the Baltimore Cross-roads, nineteen miles from Barhamsville, and the left the Long Bridges. The army remained five days in this position, in line facing to the east, Longstreet's right covering the Long Bridges, and Magruder's left the York River Railroad; it was easily and regularly supplied by the railroad, and could no longer be turned by water. It will be remembered that in reporting to the Government, on the 27th of April, my intention to withdraw the army from the Peninsula, I repeated the suggestion made to the President in Richmond twelve days before, to concentrate all his available forces before McClellan's army. In making the suggestion on this second occasion, I had no doubt of its adoption, for the Federal forces on the Peninsula were to ours at least in the ratio of five to two; the expediency, even necessity, of this concentration, was much greater at that time than in June, when the measure wa

ssessed of your views as previously explained by you to me. I can not give you the precise date. It was the last time I saw you before the battle of Williamsburg, when you were in Richmond on your way from the Rapidan to take command at Yorktown. These three papers prove that I earnestly maintained opinions precisely opposite to those ascribed to me in the message. The movement from Yorktown was not made suddenly. The President was informed of the determination to make it on the 27th of April. It was begun about midnight of May 3d and 4th. The time of traveling from Richmond was not more than ten hours. So that there was ample time to forbid the measure if it had been disapproved. No supplies were lost, except some hospital stores left on the wharf at Yorktown by the negligence of a surgeon, who was arrested for the offense, and some intrenching-tools. A manuscript narrative by General Early is my authority. In a memorandum on the subject, Colonel R. G. Cole stated: To

els relied on the accession of large numbers from Baltimore, only thirty odd miles away by railroad. The Sixth Regiment of my brigade arrived in Washington on the 19th of April, having been obstructed, and some of them murdered, in their passage through Baltimore. From that hour Washington could get no reliable communication from any source; the wires had been cut, and the bridges of the only road connecting with the North had been burned. This state of affairs continued until the 27th of April, when I opened the route through Annapolis. The condition of mind of the President is described very graphically in the fourth volume, chapter V., of the History of Nicolay and Hay; but I beg leave to say wrongly described in this: a careful reading of that description would lead one to infer that Lincoln was in a state of abject fear. From a long and most intimate knowledge of him in times of danger and trouble, I desire to record my protest against any such inference. After the 22
