ng Yankee idea of what Grant's campaign is to be: On our right are the Raccoon, Lookout, Sand, and Cumberland Mountains. These can be crossed. They were by Rosecrans, but after months of special preparation; and should the enemy attempt the same manœuvre he may reasonably expect the same fate that befell Rosecrans at Chickamauga. It is one hundred and twenty miles from Chattanooga to Atlanta, through the same great valley. With his flanks and rear thus protected by Dame Nature, a powerful army to back him, necessitated to establish a short line, without fear of being flanked, Gen. Grant will be enabled to make the campaign to Atlanta without a serious engagement; and the name Atlanta is to be used in the sense of a compound one, signifying and including Rome, with her arsenals; Montgomery, with her great stores of cotton; Mobile, with her splendid advantages, and, indeed, all the country between the valley and the Mississippi river. It will never do to give up Chattanooga.
