McCabe'sMcCabe's History of Lee and His Campaigns, page 508, says General Lee had ordered General Beauregard not to evacuate his line until Anderson's Corps, then moving from Richmond, should relieve him, but as the demand for troops at Petersburg was so urgent, and there was no prospect that Anderson would get up in time, General Beauregard assuhed Beauregard's line.
