General James Longstreet, From Manassas to Appomattox, Chapter 31: battle of Chickamauga. (search)
that we had broken and carried the first line; that Johnson's division, on his left, was then in the breach andful confidence. As we approached a second line, Johnson's division happened to strike it while in the act oight readily drew Hood's brigades to that bearing. Johnson's and Hindman's divisions were called to a similar hand, and bring them around to close connection on Johnson's left. On the most open parts of the Confederaman gathered his forces and marched for the left of Johnson's division, and Preston's brigade under General Tri of one of our batteries of the right wing. General Johnson thought that he had the key of the battle near ley road. He was informed of orders given General Johnson for my left, and General Buckner for a battery on tve use of it in supporting us. After his lunch, General Johnson was ordered to make ready his own and Hindman'she battery not opening as promptly as expected, General Johnson was finally ordered into strong, steady battle

us to go on; that the enemy had so surrounded the fort with network of wire that it was impossible for the men to get in without axes, and that there was not an axe in the command. Without a second thought I ordered the recall, and ordered General Johnson to march his brigades back to their camps. He begged to be allowed to go on, but, giving full faith to the report, I forbade him. I had known Major Goggin many years. He was a classmate at West Point, and had served with us in the field iing about a hundred and fifty infantry with Benjamin's battery. Our muskets from the outside of the parapet could have kept the infantry down, and the artillery practice, except the few hand-grenades, prepared at the time by the artillerists. Johnson's brigades would have been at the ditch with me in ten minutes, when we would have passed over the works. Hence it seems conclusive that the failure was due to the order of recall. It is not a part of my nature to listen to reports that always

, which delayed him and gave time for the enemy to change to a position some four miles to his rear. As we approached the position in front of the Gap, Giltner's cavalry in advance, General B. R. Johnson met and engaged the enemy in a severe fight, but forced him back steadily. As we were looking for large capture more than fight, delay was unfortunate. I called Kershaw's brigade up to force contention till we could close the west end of the Gap. The movements were nicely executed by Johnson and Kershaw, but General Martin had not succeeded in gaining his position, so the rear was not closed, and the enemy retired. At night I thought the army was in position to get the benefit of the small force cut off at the Gap, as some reward for our very hard work. We received reports from General Jones, west of the mountain, that he was in position at his end of the Gap, and had captured several wagon-loads of good things. As his orders included the capture of the train, he had failed

the enemy's attack on the 28th. General B. R. Johnson's infantry division had been ordered near Dandridge, and crossed while Armstrong's command held the enemy. The latter was caught in battle from which there was no escape but to fight it out. Johnson's infantry crossed in time to march towards the enemy's rear before he could dislodge Armstrong. I rode a little in advance of Johnson's command. The enemy, advised of the approach of infantry, made his final charge and retired south towards MJohnson's command. The enemy, advised of the approach of infantry, made his final charge and retired south towards Marysville. In his last effort one of his most reckless troopers rode in upon Headquarters, but Colonel Fairfax put spurs into his horse, dashed up against him, had his pistol at his head, and called surrender before the man could level his gun. The trooper was agreeably surprised to find it no worse. The enemy's move to Marysville left us in possession of the foraging grounds. On the 30th, General Grant urged General Foster's army to the offensive, and called for the cavalry raid through
