anted to leave nothing for the rebellion to stand upon. I would advise you to overcome great obstacles to accomplish this. Charleston was evacuated on Tuesday last. U. S. Grant, Lieutenant-General. On the 25th I received a dispatch from General Sheridan, inquiring where Sherman was aiming for, and if I could give him definite information as to the points he might be expected to move on this side of Charlotte, N. C. In answer the following telegram was sent him: City Point, Va., February 25, 1865. Maj. Gen. P. H. Sheridan: General: Sherman's movements will depend on the amount of opposition he meets with from the enemy. If strongly opposed, he may possibly have to fall back to Georgetown, S. C., and fit out for a new start. I think, however, all danger for the necessity of going to that point has passed. I believe he has passed Charlotte. He may take Fayetteville on his way to Goldsborough. If you reach Lynchburg you will have to be guided in your after movements by the

Infantry, embracing sixteen companies of the First, Second, and Third Battalions, while under my command, during the Atlanta campaign, from the 14th of June to the 1st of September, 1864, inclusive, and respectfully request that it be included in the reports of the detachments already received from Capts.

h and join his forces to those of General Beauregard, and with the garrison at Augusta, who were aiming to reach the same point. This left the coast of South Carolina comparatively free of Confederate troops; yet there were still points that required attention. Fortifications along the rivers had to be destroyed. In the panic at the movements of Sherman's army most of these places had been hurriedly evacuated without injuring them, and the enemy might again occupy them. On the 25th of February, 1865, Georgetown, S. C., was occupied by the naval forces, in view of the movements of General Sherman, who might desire to be placed in communication with it before entering North Carolina.
