his back, the Union legions far outnumbered him. Then, with Grant's grim, invincible determination, there were no more footsteps backward. Yet even Grant had very much to contend with in this very matter. Southern families abounded in Washington;as hopeless a task as the very worst assigned to Hercules. Grant, with his accustomed stoicism, accepted their presence in haled. Yet it was one of these who successfully bore to General Grant, Sheridan's urgent I wish you were here, when, on the 5y reached the wearied leader, and, rousing to the occasion, Grant decided to ride at once through the darkness to Sheridan's es of supplies without which no army can exist. The men of Grant and Buell, trudging on to Shiloh, had the Tennessee for a best of roads, firm and hard, high and dry. The campaigns of Grant, Lee, Sherman, Johnston, Sheridan, Stuart, Thomas, Hood, Ho is something for the American people to remember that when Grant and Sheridan cut loose from their base for the last week's

The lower photograph shows a transport steamer crowded with troops for Grant's concentration of the army at City Point. Transport steamer on the River James carrying a number of these furloughed men, most of whom had become convalesceech to his army in Italy: Soldiers! You need everything—the enemy has everything. The Confederates often acted upon the same principle. At City Point, Virginia, Grant's wagon-trains received the army supplies landed from the ships.

ederates with his well-disciplined army in the spring. They did not suspect that Little Mac was to be deposed for Burnside, and that the command of the Army of the Potomac was to pass on to Hooker and then to Meade. In the meantime, the star of Grant was to rise steadily in the West, and he was finally to guide the Army of the Potomac to victory. All these things were hidden to these men of the Eighth New York State Militia Infantry in their picturesque gray uniforms. They have already somerate military organizations to the Federal armies, and over one hundred to the Confederacy. The Union sentiment in the State is said to have been due to Frank P. Blair, who, early in 1861, began organizing home guards. Blair subsequently joined Grant's command and served with that leader until Sherman took the helm in the West. With Sherman Major-General Blair fought in Georgia and through the Carolinas. Smyth, of Delaware Little Delaware furnished to the Federal armies fifteen separate
families, meaning to return to the colors as soon as that was done! Technically, they were deserters, but not in the heart or faith, poor fellows! Still, for Lee's army the result was disastrous. It was seen in the thinning ranks that opposed Grant's mighty host, week after week. This is the South's explanation of the fact, which the records show, that while at the close of the war there were over a million men under arms in the Federal armies, the aggregate of the Confederates was but 133 the vast power of the Northern States. And yet none of these considerations furnishes the true explanation of the failure of the Confederate armies to establish the Confederacy. It was not superior equipment. It was not alone the iron will of Grant, or the strategy of Sherman. A power mightier than all these held the South by the throat and slowly strangled its army and its people. That power was Sea Power. The Federal navy, not the Federal army, conquered the South. In my opinion, sa

Another Western boy who saw stirring service, though never formally enlisted, was the eldest son of General Grant, a year older than little Clem, when he rode with his father through the Jackson campaign and the siege of Vicksburg.

These boys of the Sixth Corps haill rush toward the Confederate works—then stagger to cover, with ten thousand men killed, wounded, or missing in a period computed less than fifteen minutes. When Grant found that he had been out-generated by Lee on the North Anna River, he immediately executed a flank movement past Lee's right, his weakest point. The Sixth Corp

But a few weeks' work in the opening spring, as Grant maneuvers to starve Lee out of Petersburg, and the scouts' duties will be over. Sheridan will come, too, from the Shenandoah with his cavalry scouts, the finest body of information seekers developed by the War. General Grant was in General Grant was in a constant state of uneasiness during the winter, fearing that Lee would leave his strong lines around Petersburg and unite with Johnston. Consequently he depended on his Secret-service men to keep him informed as to any signs of movement on the part of Lee. Secret-service headquarters in the last months of the War Secret-

They were on the advanced lines of Yorktown, and the saps and trenches at Charleston, Vicksburg, and Port Hudson, near the battle-lines at Chickamauga and Chancellorsville, before the fort-crowned crest of Fredericksburg, amid the frightful carnage of Antietam, on Kenesaw Mountain deciding the fate of Allatoona, in Sherman's march to the sea, and with Grant's victorious army at Appomattox and Richmond.
