ommand, the artillery, got orders to move about noon on May 4, 1864, being in camp near Mechanicsville, some four or five miles west of Gordonsville. We marched about four P. M., and with only short rests all night and all next day till about five P. M., when we halted to rest and bivouac at a point which I cannot remember; but our cavalry had had a skirmish there with the enemy's cavalry just before our arrival, and I remember seeing some killed and wounded of each side. Your whole corps, Hood's and McLaws' s, and the artillery, I think, was concentrated at that point, and my recollection is that we had orders to move on during the night, or before daylight the next morning, to get on the enemy's left flank on the Brock road. But whatever the orders were, I remember distinctly that during the night news of the fight on the Plank road came, and with it a change of orders, and that we marched at one A. M., or earlier, and turned to the left and struck the Plank road at Parker's S

Answer was made that when able for duty I would be prepared to obey orders. Later came sadder news from Virginianly tangible effect was to relieve the commander of the land forces from further service in the field. In Georgia, General Hood led his army off from the front of General Sherman at Atlanta, and marched west and north, and the latter took up his was appointed brigadier-general, and relieved of his duties by Colonel Osman Latrobe. The Army of Tennessee, under General Hood, pursuing its march northward late in November and early in December, came upon the Federal forces under General Schofield at Franklin, and General Thomas at Nashville, Tennessee, where desperate battles were fought, until Hood's army was reduced to skeleton commands and forced to retreat. And thus with Sherman's progressive movements in the extreme South, our own

you have declared in favor of emancipation in Tennessee, for which, may God bless you. Get emancipation into your new State government-constitution-and there will be no such word as fail for your case. In another letter of September 19, the President sent the governor specific authority to execute the. scheme outlined in his letter of advice; but no substantial success had yet been reached in the process of reconstruction in Tennessee during the year 1864, when the Confederate army under Hood turned northward from Atlanta to begin its third and final invasion of the State. This once more delayed all work of reconstruction until the Confederate army was routed and dispersed by the battle of Nashville on December 15, 1864. Previous popular action had called a State convention, which, taking immediate advantage of the expulsion of the enemy, met in Nashville on January 9, 1865, in which fifty-eight counties and some regiments were represented by about four hundred and sixty-seven d

His position as a candidate on a platform of dishonorable peace would have been no less desperate than ridiculous. But the stars in their courses fought against the Democratic candidates. Even before the convention that nominated them, Farragut had won the splendid victory of Mobile Bay; during the very hours when the streets of Chicago were blazing with Democratic torches, Hood was preparing to evacuate Atlanta; and the same newspaper that printed Vallandigham's peace platform announced Sherman's entrance into the manufacturing metropolis of Georgia. The darkest hour had passed; dawn was at hand, and amid the thanksgivings of a grateful people, and the joyful salutes of great guns, the presidential campaign began. When the country awoke to the true significance of the Chicago platform, the successes of Sherman excited the enthusiasm of the people, and the Union
a moment all would have been lost, had not one William Goss (company clerk of company I) leaped from the intrenchments, and, running to the bridge under the fire of about four hundred guns, threw ten boards off into the river, and returned unhurt. This prevented the capture of the whole force.--Louisville Journal. A fight occurred near Mulberry Gap, Tenn., between the Eleventh Tennessee cavalry and a body of rebels, in which the National troops were obliged to retreat Lieutenant-General J. B. Hood, of the rebel army, in an address to his old division, concludes as follows: A stern conflict is before us; other hardships must be borne, other battles fought, and other blood shed; but we have nothing to fear if we only prove ourselves worthy of independence — it is ours, but our armies must deliver us. With them we must blaze a highway through our enemies to victory and to peace. In the trials and dangers that are to come, I know you will claim an honorable share, and w

At this point General Hood gave me verbal orders as follows: That I shing all this time I had met and talked with General Hood repeatedly, our field headquarters being notflanked several hundred yards. I had urged General Hood to hurry up Stewart and place him on my rig on my right. On reaching the road where General Hood's field headquarters had been established I found a courier with a message from General Hood requesting me to come to him at Captain Thompson'sford's Creek.
