en remembered President Lincoln's words at my last interview with him: They are loyal there, general! During my march of 100 miles I was every day made aware of the truth of Lincoln's declaration. Sherman and I marched back to Chattanooga, and with the Eleventh Corps I returned to the old camp in Lookout Valley. By some singular clerical error Sherman in his memoirs puts Gordon Granger for me in that Knoxville march. Granger after our return did come up to help Burpside, and later, Schofield, in the holding and picketing of East Tennessee for the winter of 1863 and 1864. During that time Granger had his headquarters at Loudon. There was quite an interval of time from the close of the Knoxville campaign to the beginning of the spring operations of 1864. After Chattanooga, the Confederate General Bragg withdrew his army, under the pressure we gave him, to the little town of Dalton, Ga., where he himself was soon replaced by General Joseph E. Johnston, whom we have so often

The reason for it we will find by taking the map and following the movement of Sherman's left column. This column was Schofield's, reenforced by Hooker's corps. Sherman had sent Hooker to follow Schofield over the ferries that ran across the branSchofield over the ferries that ran across the branches of the Oostanaula above me, because our new bridge at Resaca had not sufficient capacity for all, and probably, furthermore, to give greater strength to his flanking force. The left column, setting out at the same hour with me, was obliged to make a wide detour eastward and to cross two rivers instead of one, to wit, the Connasauga and the Coosawattee. Schofield laid his bridges at Fite's and Field's crossings. The cavalry. forded the rivers, these made two columns coming up beyond my left. Johnston heard during the night, by reports from his active cavalry scouts, that Hooker and Schofield were beyond his right and aiming for Cassville, thus threatening the Allatoona Bridge, which was to be his main crossing of the Etowah.

It was, however, Schofield's cavalry, under Stoneman, some horse artillery being wit as infantry. Stoneman deserved special recognition from Schofield and Sherman for this good work. Captain David B. Conynry was a little in advance of Hooker, well spread out. Schofield, farther to the left, with his cavalry under Stoneman car during the night.
