1862. While Beauregard and I were gaining that brilliant victory at Corinth, without fighting or letting the enemy or our own army know anything about it, I was gathering materials for a history of the battle of Shiloh from some of the heroic actors and survivors of that bloody, brilliant day. I am not joking about Beauregard's "victory," because the retreat was a great triumph, if measured by its success, and the injury and loss inflicted on the enemy, which some of them, in spite of Halleck's lies, have had the grace to confess. We certainly "surprised" them, as well as ourselves. We lost some of our sick, who, in consequence of the "fall back." of course had a "relapse. " But, as to Shiloh, many incidents we hear daily which illustrate the undying (?) devotion of our soldiers to our holy cause, and prove how idle is the empty hope of Northern hordes to conquer by superior numbers the gallant army we oppose to them. Let me furnish an example in a hurried recital of the
middle wing under Lane at Chattanooga has been, at least for the present, foiled by the energetic movements of McClellan; but news from Western Virginia shows that Jo. E. Johnston is concentrating all the forces he can bring against Fœmont's command in that direction — leading directly toward Pittsburg. And the evidence is overwhelming that all the forces from those States to constitute Beauregard's army at Corinth are concentrating there rapidly, with the design and hope of overpowering Gen. Halleck's army, and, if successful in the object, then moving according to their plan. They will, by this means, cause the Federal authorities to move an army in that direction to meet them, during which time the traitors will rally by persuasion, impressment, and under the conscription law, to their army every traitor and rebel in Tennessee and Kentucky. With these facts before us we, and the reader also, can see why it is that Morgan, Wood, King and Scott, with their marauding bands, are
The affair at Boonville. --The Wilmington Journal gives the following version of the queer affair which occurred at Boonville, related by who knows the facts: So quietly had all the arrangements for the evacuation of Corinth been made, that Halleck was completely fooled, and in perfect ignorance of what was going on, so that, suspecting no such immediate movement on our part, he had secretly dispatched a body of troops, mainly cavalry, with the object of reaching, by a wide circuit, a point on the Mobile and Ohio Road in the rear of Corinth, and of destroying some bridges, with the view of interrupting our communication. A mer dash and away. Preparatory to the evacuation, a number of our sick, amounting in all to about fifteen hundred, with an escort of about two hundred well men, bad been sent down from Corinth to Boonville. The Yankee bridge-burning force suddenly came upon these sick men with their attendants, and had them all ranged in line ready to be carried off
The Daily Dispatch: June 24, 1862., [Electronic resource], Halleck's misrepresentations — Beauregard's Reply. (search)
Halleck's misrepresentations — Beauregard's Reply. We copy from the Mobile Evening News the communication of Gen. Beauregard. to which brief allusion has been made through the medium of the telegraph. It will be seen that the opinion heretoflemen: My attention has just been called to the following dispatch (published in your issue of yesterday) of Major-General Halleck, commanding enemy's forces, which, coming from such a source, is most remarkable in one respect — that it containhe actual number of prisoners taken during the retreat was about equal on both sides, and they were but few. Major General Halleck must be a very credulous man indeed to believe the absurd story of "that farmer," He ought to know that the burnisly consumed in the station-house! Let Col. Elliott's name descend to infamy as the author of such a revolting deed. Gen. Halleck did not capture nins locomotives. It was only by the accidental destruction of a bridge before some trains had passed
