quence. The Confederates still held the Roanoke River above Plymouth, as there was not a sufficient naval force in the Sounds to operate successfully in that quarter. A large portion of the enemy's forces in North Carolina had been drawn off to fill up the ranks of General Joseph E. Johnston's army, which was charged with the duty of impeding General Sherman in his march to the sea. About this time Sherman had captured Savannah and General Grant had received the news of the utter rout of Hood's army in Tennessee by General Thomas, which left Sherman at liberty to march through the Carolinas without apprehensions of a formidable enemy in his rear, and with sufficient addition to his forces from the troops of Schofield and Terry to enable him to hold his own until he reached Goldsborough, N.

There was certainly no general on the other side for whose abiliities Sherman had so great a respect as for those of Johnston. Beauregard, Hardee and Bragg gave him comparatively little uneasiness, and he was glad when Hood relieved Johnston at Atlanta, as he then felt assured of victory. But the Confederate army, which in the enumeration of its parts appeared so imposing, was no match for Sherman's victorious hosts, who had gained a prestige they did not intend to forfeit. Circumstances also combined to favor Sherman's advance. When the Federal campaign in South Carolina commenced, Hardee had eighteen thousand men; when he reached Cheraw he had but eleven thousand, and at Averyboroa the number had diminish
