The entire garrison were taken prisoners, and all the stores intended for the use of the National army were destroyed. About the same time General Forrest destroyed the railroad at various points between Columbus and Jackson.

As a result, Sherman was obliged to relinquish his position and to get his army back into the transports. See Vicksburg, siege of.

Battle of Murfreesboro, or battle of Stone River, As the year 1862 was drawing to a close, General Grant concentrated the bulk of his army at Holly Springs, Miss., where he was confronted by Van Dorn; and at about the same time General Rosecrans, with a greater part of the Army Battle of Murfreesboro. of the Cumberland, moved southward to attack Bragg below Nashville.

armies: If I join this corps to the forces of Beauregard (I confess, a hazardous experiment), then, those who are now declaiming against me will be without an argument. Soon after General Johnston's arrival, and in the course of his first conference with General Beauregard, he expressed, with evident emotion, his purpose to turn over to the latter the direct command of our united forces, and to confine his own functions to those of Department Commander, with headquarters at Memphis or Holly Springs. He alleged, as his reason for wishing to do so, that such a course would be best for the success of our cause; that he had lost, in no small degree, the confidence of the people, and somewhat, he feared, of the army itself, in consequence of recent disasters; while he felt sure that General Beauregard, who held the confidence of both, was better fitted to cope with present difficulties and dangers, and fulfil, successfully, public expectation.
