on. The army, henceforth designated as the army of the Mississippi, was divided into two corps; the Fifteenth, commanded by Sherman, was composed of the divisions of Steele and Stuart; McClernand became titular commander of the Thirteenth, comprising the division of A. J. Smith and Morgan, the latter being temporarily placed in command. At the same period, the rest of the army of the Tennessee was also divided into two corps, the Sixteenth and Seventeenth, under the respective commands of Hurlbut and McPherson.

On the evening of the 6th of November, about ten o'clock, the Secretary sent for me to come to his office, where I found him with General Halleck. He told me that he wanted me to go and find the headquarters of the army of the Potomac, and spent so
