t the main column of the Fifteenth passed, and bivouacked that night near the great bridge that spans the Congaree, in front of Columbia, where the Confederates, in and around that city, shelled them. That bridge was burned the next morning Feb. 16, 1865 by the occupants of Columbia, when the National vanguard approached it. In the mean time the left wing of the army, under Slocum, had pushed steadily forward some distance to the westward of the right, but with the same destination, Columb also ordered to cross both rivers, and to march directly upon Winnsboroa, destroying the Greenville and Columbia railroad around the village of Alston, where it crosses the Broad River. Both orders were executed. Howard crossed the Saluda Feb. 16, 1865. on a pontoon bridge, near Granby, and made a flying bridge that night over the Broad River, three miles above Columbia. Over that the brigade of Colonel Stone (Twenty-fifth Iowa Infantry), of Woods's division of the Fifteenth (Logan's) Corp

in arrangements which were considered discreditable to all concerned. If the Confederates could sell all their products as they pleased, and receive money or supplies in return, the war might have been greatly prolonged. The question as to the origin of the Red River expedition has been settled by General Grant, as before stated, but that regarding the object of the same is still shrouded in mystery. General Halleck, in his testimony before the Committee on the conduct of the war, Feb. 16, 1865, says: The object of the expedition, as I understood it at the time, was to form a junction between the forces under General Steele and those under General Banks, so as to shorten the line of defence on the western side of the Mississippi River, and to establish a position within the State of Texas which should be permanently held, it being considered an important object, by the executive branch of the Government at that time, that a post should be held at all consequences within the

d bruised, for, observing this charge of cavalry, he had turned for us, and his horse fell with him in attempting to leap a ditch. General Woods's skirmish-line met this charge of cavalry, and drove it back into the woods and beyond. We remained on that ground during the night of the 15th, and I camped on the nearest dry ground behind the Little Congaree, where on the next morning were made the written orders for the government of the troops while occupying Columbia. These are dated February 16, 1865, in these words: General Howard will cross the Saluda and Broad Rivers as near their mouths as possible, occupy Columbia, destroy the public buildings, railroad property, manufacturing and machine shops; but will spare libraries, asylums, and private dwellings. He will then move to Winnsboroa, destroying en route utterly that section of the railroad. He will also cause all bridges, trestles, water-tanks, and depots on the railroad back to the Wateree to be burned, switches broken

consists of his letters, orders, &c.--these being, as he says, the best report he could submit. His letters are, indeed, an industrious daily correspondence, full of interest to the military student, including those who fought against him; and from the date of Vicksburg, March 4th, 1864, to Saint Louis, November 21st, 1865, have all been carefully published by him, excepting his letters and orders during the four days between the date of In the field opposite Columbia, South Carolina, February 16, 1865, and In the field, Winsboroa, South Carolina, February 21st, 1865, (pages 327, 328 of report). Why are these surpressed? In his Memoirs (page 287) he states that the burning of Columbia [during this four days period] was accidental. Yet in the cotton cases it transpired that General-in-Chief Halleck wrote him: Should you capture Charleston, I hope by some accident the place may be destroyed; and if a little salt should be thrown upon its site, it may prevent the growth of future crop

and privates, declared that it was to be destroyed. It was, deposes a witness (Mrs. Rosa J. Meetze), the common talk among them (at the village of Lexington) that Columbia was to be burned by General Sherman. At the same place, on the 16th of February, 1865, as deposed to by another witness, Mrs. Frances T. Caughman, the general officer in command of his cavalry forces, General Kilpatrick, said, in reference to Columbia: Sherman will lay it in ashes for them. It was the general impression among all the prisoners we captured, says a Confederate officer, Colonel J. P. Austin, of the Ninth Kentucky cavalry, that Columbia was to be destroyed. On the morning of the same day (February 16, 1865) some of the forces of General Sherman appeared on the western side of the Congaree river, and without a demand of surrender, or any previous notice of their purpose, began to shell the town, then filled. with women, children and aged persons, and continued to do so, at intervals, throughout
