From this place, on the 22nd, he announced to Bragg: I shall, unless Sherman moves south, so soon as I can collect supplies, cross the Chattahoochee river, and form line of battle near Powder Springs. This will prevent him from using the Dalton railroad, and force him to drive me off, or move south, when I shall fall upon his rear. It is strange to note how the very movement which Grant and Sherman were discussing, had been considered nearly as soon by the rebel general. He even appeared to desire the national advance, and purposely left

If wn attempt. On the 3rd of December, Grant wrote to Sherman: Bragg has gone from Wilmington. I am trying to take advantage offf. I hope they will be ready to start by the 7th, and that Bragg will not have started back by that time. On the 4th, he sa now be expected to strike the seacoast at any day, leaving Bragg free to return. I think it advisable for you to notify Admch, we must endeavor to make a raid upon the Danville road. Bragg has taken most of the troops from Wilmington to Georgia, whs; Grant at the same time availed himself of the absence of Bragg, occasioned by Sherman, to initiate an attack on Wilmington

At Millen Sherman heard that Bragg was at Augusta, and that Wade Hampton had beenusand strong, to North Carolina. On the 20th, Bragg, who had returned to Wilmington and resumed co This day General Lee telegraphed to Seddon: Bragg reports the enemy made a landing on sea-beach,7 inside, and 550 at Sugar Loaf. On the 25th, Bragg reported Kirkland's brigade and 400 of Hagood'ld have been assembled on the peninsula under Bragg. But this was the very contingency against why held against double or treble any force that Bragg could have brought against it. As soon as Gran shifted his line so as to confront Terry, and Bragg gave him orders to attack the national works; was too strong to be carried. In this opinion Bragg concurred. Pollard's Lost Cause. This defore Terry landed. Indeed, the supineness of Bragg and Hoke was as discreditable as the gallantry

He quarrelled with Beauregard and Bragg and Johnston by turns, and was jealous and overbearing towards junction in the national front; and these, with Hardee, Wheeler, Bragg, and Hampton's troops, would amount to forty thousand men; a formidtless . . . unite with General Schofield at Raleigh or Weldon. General Bragg reports that General Schofield is now preparing to advance fromtewart [from Hood's army], not likely to reach in time.

When the war was over, Grant had fought and beaten every important rebel soldier in turn: Buckner at Donelson, Beauregard at Shiloh, Pemberton and Johnston at Vicksburg, Bragg at Chattanooga, Lee in Virginia, and all of them altogether in the last year of the rebellion. From Belmont, the initial battle of his career, he had never been driven from the field, and had never receded a step in any of his campaigns, except at Holly Springs, and then the rebels were in retreat before him, and Grant, unable to follow fast enough to overtake them, withdrew, only to advance on another line. He went on steadily from the start, gaining in reputation and skill, acquiring exp
