Steele, whose division, except Blair's brigade, had been debarked above the junctiooon before he was ready; and, by this time, Frank Blair's and Thayer's brigades of Steele's divisio (Hovey's) brigade being close behind them. Blair's brigade had been debarked between Morgan's aayer's brigade, to advance simultaneously with Blair and De Courcy, and ford the bayou farther to tt them to a temporary halt; when, supported by Blair's brigade, they charged up to within musket-ra Haines's Bluff. Sherman accordingly embarked Blair's division on ten steam boats, and proceeded our men were seriously hurt. Toward evening, Blair's division was debarked in full view of the ente the delivery of this blow. Pushing forward Blair's division toward Edwards's Station, he directs to a close proximity to the Rebel defenses. Blair's division of Sherman's corps alone planted iteadly fire. Sherman's attack was made by Frank Blair's division, led by the brigade of Gen. Hugh[5 more...]

Smith's, which covered the working parties engaged in repairing the railroad; so that the movement had to be made circumspectly and slowly. trong enough to be perilous, they were so lively as to be vexatious. At length, they got directly in the way at Cane creek, Oct. 27. near Tuscumbia, compelling Blair to hurt some of them before they would move. By this time — Hooker having long since arrived on the Tennessee — Grant had become impatient for more decisive operannessee from Cairo, to facilitate his crossing; but two transports and a ferry-boat soon arrived, Oct. 31. by whose aid Sherman was pushing on next day, leaving Blair to protect his rear. Arrived at Rogersville, he found the Elk unbridged and unfordable, and was compelled to move up its right bank to Fayetteville, crossing ther

If this burning violated the laws of war, it had already been twice avenged by burning Gov. Bradford's country residence near Baltimore, and ex-P. M. General Blair's, near Washington. It was not in accordance with Lee's orders nor his practice in either of his invasions; for, though he burned Thaddeus Stevens's iron-works near Gettysburg (as we burned manufactories of warlike material, clothing, &c., throughout the South), he sternly forbad wanton devastation; and he was obeyed. Averill, with 2,600 cavalry, perplexed by the enemy's bewildering demonstrations, had fallen back from Hagerstown to Greencastle, and was but 9 miles from Chambersburg whil

Frank Blair here came up, June 8. with two divisior, with Logan's (15th) corps in the center, Frank Blair's (17th) on its left, and Dodge's (16th) on right, was now close to these inner defenses; Blair had carried, the night before, by hard fightinnexpected blow at Giles A.
