I purposely directed my first day's march towards Louisa, so as to favor the idea of reinforcing Jackson, and camped just opposite Hanover Court-House, near Southaven bridge (R., F. and P. Railroad,) twenty-two miles from Richmond. Our noiseless bivouac was broken early next morning, and without flag or bugle sound we resumed our march, none but one knew whither. I however, immediately took occasion to make known my instructions and plans confidentially to the regimental commanders, so as to secure an intelligent action and co-operation in whatever might occur Scouts had returned indicating
