A few regiments had been brought from the West, where the operations had lost something of their importance since Beauregard had retired into the interior, leaving Corinth in the hands of Halleck. But it was the co-operation of Jackson that Lee was expecting, in order to change the course of the campaign, and execute the offensive movement for which he was preparing.

Warned by the example of what had taken place a few months before, Halleck opposed this fatal dismemberment of the armies of the West, but only succeededly, on the 12th of November, Grant was given permission, to quote the words in Halleck's despatch, to fight the enemy wherever he should think proper, and he set off the river, and on the 5th of December he made a proposition to that effect to Halleck, the more earnestly, perhaps, because he dreaded to see this expedition entrusded in inspiring confidence in two chiefs so entirely opposite in character as Halleck and Grant, was designated to command the expedition.
