the reduction of Mobile, and occupation of the line of the Alabama. In my judgment the first would have a material effect upon your campaign in Virginia; the second would be the safest of execution; but the third would more properly fall within the sphere of my own command, and have a direct bearing upon my own enemy, Beauregard. If, therefore, I should start before I hear further from you, or before further developments turn my course, you may take it for granted that I have moved via Griffin to Barnesville; that I break up the road between Columbus and Macon good; and then, if I feign on Columbus, will move via Macon and Millen to Savannah; or, if I feign on Macon, you may take it for granted that I have shot off toward Opelika, Montgomery and Mobile Bay or Pensacola. The following extracts from the final report of General Grant, dated Washington, July 22, 1865, bear pointedly upon the questions under consideration. In describing the combined movements ordered for the Sp

Meanwhile, Griffin and Ricketts had fired but a short while when the 33d Va., under Col. A. C. Cuases of confusion had occurred, but the most important .of all took place now. Griffin saw the regiment coming, and prepared to give them a blizzard of canister. Buwas badly wounded and captured, and his first lieutenant, Ramsay, was killed. Griffin managed to drag off three of his guns, but the other nine were left isolated bame into action in a position taking the Federal forces in flank.

Burnside found the task of driving the enemy [it was but a picket force] out of the railroad cut a formidable one, and, assaulting, established his corps within a hundred yards of the enemy's main line. . . . Warren's assault was well made, some of Griffin's men being killed within 20 feet of the enemy's works, but it was no more successful than the others. His losses were very severe. . . . On the right, Martindale advanced and gained some rifle-pits, but did not assault the main line. On the Confederate side, the day was not considered a day of battle, but only of demonstrations and reconnoissance. None of our reenforcements were engaged, the only fighting done having been by Hoke's division and Wise's brigade, who, under Beauregard,

If I were to let go Atlanta and north Georgia and make for Hood, he would, as he did here, retreat to the southwest, leaving his militia, now assembling at Macon and Griffin, to occupy our conquests, and the work of last summer would be lost. I have retained about 50,000 good troops, and have sent back full 25,000; and having instructed General Thomas to hold defensively Nashville, Chattanooga, and Decatur, all strongly fortified and provisioned for a long siege, I will destroy all the railroads of Georgia and do as much substantial damage as is possible, reaching the sea-coast near one of the points hitherto indicated, trusting that General Thomas, with his p

The greater part of Ricketts's and Griffin's batteries were captured, with a flag of the 1st Michigan regiment, Sackson's brigade. Many were the deeds of valor ac9—that is, about eighteen per cent. of the brigade. A regiment of Franklin's brigade—Gorman's—lost twentyone per cent.
