mber and the 2d of January, 1863; was sent to reinforce Breckenridge on the right, who had been roughly handled that afternoerposing a fresh line between the victorious enemy and Breckenridge's shattered columns, gave time for the latter to rally to much bitter feeling between General Bragg and Major-General Breckenridge, Bragg in his official report having animadverted very severely upon Breckenridge's conduct and having attributed more—I think—to my brigade than it was entitled to. On the other hand Breckenridge hardly did us justice, or rather his friends, who discussed the matter in the public prints did not report on that occasion, a copy of which I sent to General Breckenridge, whereupon he wrote me a very complimentary note, cdeserved. I allude to it here because both Bragg's and Breckenridge's statements may become matters of controversy and disp in the provisional army and assigned to the command of Breckenridge's division in the Army of Tennessee.

sue immediately. I remained on the field until dark, and then withdrew about three miles, and at midnight General Bragg gave me verbal instructions to hold that position. On the next morning, the 8th, Generals Sherman and Wood, each with a division, advanced, but, after feeling our lines, retired. I remained in the position close up to the enemy for about a week. and, with the exception of scouting parties, which approached our lines, the enemy remained quietly in their camp. General Breckenridge had halted his command between my position and Monterey, and the day after the battle rode down to my bivouac, and the following day continued his march to Corinth. General Withers, in his report of the withdrawal from the field (Vol. X, page 535), says: The remainder of the troops marched to within a mile of Mickey's, where they were placed under command of Colonel Wheeler, who throughout the fight had proved himself worthy of all trust and confidence, a gallant commander and

convictions. His attitude was well understood by the partisans of both sides, and as the clouds of civil war thickened, the eyes of the Kentucky secessionists who intended to fight were turned toward Buckner as their natural chief. And their chief he became; thousands of Kentuckians followed him out of the Union who would doubtless have remained at home but for his example. The great majority of Kentuckians wished to remain at peace in the Union, but the powerful influence of Buckner, Breckenridge, Marshall and others came near taking the State out. He was assiduously courted by the Southern leaders. That Buckner's standing was high, is attested by the great esteem in which he was held by all his old military associates of Northern proclivities, who became familiar with him at West Point, and subsequently in the old army. So favorably was he regarded as a professional soldier, that strong efforts were made to bring him over. The temptations held out to him were great enough to
