Tennesseeans. John C. Breckinridge. General Bragg left Chattanooga for Kentucky on the 28th of August. The day before he started, he wrote as follows: Chattanooga, August 27, 1862. Major-General Breckinridge: My Dear General: We leave for your beloved home tomorrow. Would that you were with us. Your division is ready for you as soon as you join, but you must hurry up to overtake us. Buell is anxious apparently to get to Cincinnati before us, but we envy him the honor. General Jones (Samuel) had orders to organize, arm and equip all stragglers, recovered sick, and those absent from leave and have them ready to join you. The quartermaster department has orders to be ready to send you on. Move with 100 rounds of ammunition and twenty-five days rations. We go by way of Sparta and Burkesville into the heart of Kentucky. Yours most truly, Braxton Bragg. The above and much more correspondence on the subject will be found in the Rebellion Records, Vol. XVI, Part
