Smith, and Brigadier-Generals Lewis Wallace, Sherman, and Hurlbut. The last two were at Pittsburg Landing, and Lewis Wallac attempted, give all the support of your division, and General Hurlbut's, if necessary. I will return to Pittsburg Landing rman's division, and covering the crossing of Lick creek. Hurlbut was massed and in reserve, to the rear and left of Prentishort interval between Prentiss and Stuart, which, however, Hurlbut completely covered. C. F. Smith was ill of a sickness frortion of his division to support Sherman's wavering left. Hurlbut, too, was marched forward to the support of Prentiss; and uell then busied himself with hurrying up his own army. Hurlbut's command, on the left, was repeatedly compelled to fall but raked the rebels well, each time when they charged. On Hurlbut's right, W. H. L. Wallace made a gallant stand, repelling , was the line really pierced during all the eventful day. Hurlbut and W. H. L. Wallace, being forced to give way, connected
ng east and south, and cutting off Rosecrans from all reenforcements; so Grant hurried Ord and Hurlbut by way of Pocahontas from Bolivar, forty-four miles away, to be ready to strike Van Dorn in flahan a moral effect, but the enemy knew of his approach, and had also encountered the advance of Hurlbut's column, the day before. The knowledge of these reenforcements , however, seemed only to stime fight; and on the 5th, while in full retreat, were struck in flank, as Grant had planned, by Hurlbut and Ord, and the disaster was rendered final. This occurred early on the morning of the 5th,reach another bridge. Ord was seriously wounded in the fight, and the command then devolved on Hurlbut, who did not attempt a pursuit. Grant had notified Rosecrans, in advance, of the movement of Hurlbut and Ord, and, anticipating the victory at Corinth, had directed that commander to push on instantly after his success, if necessary, even to Bolivar; for, if Ord's little force encountered t

The Arkansas troops had been assigned to the Thirteenth corps, wRoss; but, shortly afterwards, McPherson, with his whole corps, and an additional division from Hurlbut's command (at Memphis), was ordered into the pass, whenever suitable transportation could be prMcPherson was brought from Lake Providence and the Yazoo pass, and Sherman from Steele's bayou; Hurlbut was stripped of every man that could be spared from the rear; yawls and flat-boats were collectland over the miserable, muddy roads. As early as the 13th of February, Grant had written to Hurlbut: It seems to me that Grierson, with about five hundred picked men, might succeed in cutting hisevented the execution of the plan until the 9th of March, when full instructions were issued to Hurlbut to send Grierson on such an errand; but obstacles again intervened, and it was not till the mid

In order that Blair might be brought forward, Hurlbut, who was still at Memphis, was directed to order four regiments of his command the troops most convenient to transportation. On the 5th, Grant also ordered Hurlbut to send Lauman's division to Milliken's bend, to be forwarded to this army wition of the enemy, at Bovina station, on the Vicksburg and Jackson railroad. Hurlbut was to remain at Memphis, and, on the 5th, Grant sent detailed instructions tois, anxious to serve the national cause, had been drummed out of that place by Hurlbut with a great show of disgrace, for uttering seditious language and communicatiain accurate information, and on several occasions furnished it opportunely to Hurlbut. This man was in Jackson when Grant came up from Raymond; he offered to carry
it guarded the Hall's ferry and Warrenton roads; while McArthur's entire command had, by this time, joined the Seventeenth corps. Grant now ordered Prentiss and Hurlbut to send forward every available man that could possibly be spared. The siege of Vicksburg is going to occupy time, contrary to my expectations when I arrived neagade of amphibious and useful troops at his disposal, known as the Marine brigade, to debark at Haine's bluff and hold the place until relieved by other forces. Hurlbut was directed to hurry up the reenforcements already ordered from his command. No boat will be permitted to leave Memphis, going north, until the transportation ied cavalry, up the Yazoo to Mechanicsburg, to watch the crossings of the Big Black, from Bridgeport, and obstruct the roads. On the 3d of June, one division from Hurlbut arrived, under Brigadier-General Kimball, and was sent at once after Mower to Mechanicsburg, with the same instructions that Mower had already received. Grant hi
Tennessee and on the Mississippi river should be sent, without delay, to assist General Rosecrans on the Tennessee river. . . . . Information just received indicates that a part of Lee's army have been sent to reenforce Bragg. This was sent to Hurlbut, in the absence of Grant; but, when it reached Vicksburg, on the 22d, Grant had returned. He still kept his bed, but instantly directed Sherman: Order at once one division of your army corps to proceed to reenforce Rosecrans, moving from here btarted for Steele, was recalled, and ordered to Rosecrans. It was already aboard transports and on its way to Helena, but a staff-officer was dispatched to turn these troops northward; they were directed to move at once to Memphis and report to Hurlbut. The last-named officer was instructed to forward not only this division of Mc-Pherson's corps, but two divisions from his own command, and whatever troops might return from the expedition to Arkansas, which had now ended. General Halleck was
f September, and arrived at Memphis on the 2d of October. It was then his duty to conduct the Fifteenth army corps, and such other troops as could be spared from Hurlbut's command, to the support of Rosecrans, marching by way of Corinth, Tuscumbia, and Decatur, to Athens, Alabama. During this long and tedious march, he was to loo detours were made; for there was not time either to ferry, or to build new bridges; and, on the 5th, Grant again dispatched to Sherman: Leave Dodge's command (of Hurlbut's corps) at Athens, until further orders, and come with the remainder of your command to Stevenson, or until you receive other instructions. Again, on the 7th: Tient, and, on the 4th, Grant declared: The road from Nashville to Decatur will have to be put in running order. Sherman was ordered to leave Dodge's division, of Hurlbut's command, at Athens. have given directions for putting the railroad from Nashville to Decatur in running order. That road is now only guarded to Columbia, and
avalry force as can be spared, at Savannah, Tennessee, to cross the Tennessee river, and cooperate with the cavalry from Hurlbut's command, in clearing out entirely the forces now collecting in West Tennessee, under Forrest. It is the design, that burg, was now distributed, under Logan, between Stevenson and Decatur, guarding the railroad, while Dodge's division, of Hurlbut's command, was posted west of Decatur and along the line of the Nashville and Decatur road. Sherman in person started fsburg to Meridian, one hundred and fifty miles. Sherman left Vicksburg, on the 3d of February, with two columns under Hurlbut and McPherson; he reached Jackson on the 5th, after continuous skirmishing for eighteen miles, driving a force estimated; but, on the 20th, ordered McPherson to march slowly back on the main road; whilst he himself proceeded northward, with Hurlbut's column, to feel for Sooy Smith, who had failed to make the junction ordered. Sherman marched as far as Union, and the
he selection of that battle-field. It was chosen by that veteran soldier, Major-General Charles F. Smith, who ordered my division to disembark there, and strike for the Charleston railroad. This order was subsequently modified, by his ordering Hurlbut's division to disembark there, and mine higher up the Tennessee, to the mouth of Yellow creek, to strike the railroad at Burnsville. But floods prevented our reaching the railroad, when General Smith ordered me in person also to disembark at Piisions of that army were arranged in that camp by General Smith's order, my division forming, as it were, the outlying picket, whilst McClernand and Prentiss's were the real line of battle, with W. H. L. Wallace in support of the right wing, and Hurlbut of the left; Lewis Wallace's division being detached. All these subordinate dispositions were made by the order of General Smith, before General Grant succeeded him to the command of all the forces up the Tennessee-headquarters, Savanna. If th
portends preparations to attack Rosecrans, and to be able to follow up any success with rapidity. Also, to made a simultaneous raid into West Tennessee both from north Mississippi and by crossing the Tennessee river. To counteract this, Admiral Porter has consented to send the marine brigade up the Tennessee river, to cooperate with General Dodge at Corinth. I have also ordered an additional regiment of cavalry from Helena to West Tennessee. I enclose with this a letter from Major-General Hurlbut, giving a programme which he wishes to carry out; and so much of it as to drive the enemy from the Tallahatchie, and cutting the roads where they have been repaired, I think can be successfully executed. I will instruct him not to scatter his forces so as to risk losing them. I have placed one division of troops on Deer creek, with communication back to the Mississippi river just above Lake Washington. The object of this move is to keep the enemy from drawing supplies from that
