Unfortunately, Halleck's army was broken up; he was sending reenforcements to Curtis and Buell, and was being asked to send 25,000 men to McClellan. The Confederates, however, were able to send 10,000 men to the support of the defenders. Finally the Arkansas came out of the Yazoo and put an end to the operati
