He made Jackson out for the purpose of wiping out the disgrace and accomplishing the object sought for. It was estimated that Forrest had about fourteen thousand troops under him, with his Headquarters in the neighborhood of Tupelo, and in that direction, from Salisbury, fifty miles east of Memphis, General A. J. Smith marched with about twelve thousand men, early in July. He met Forrest's cavalry at the outset, and skirmished with them nearly all the way to Tupelo, on the Mobile and Ohio railway, where the

He then turned and fled, was pursued, caught, and hung in a grove, in the suburbs of the city. His right wing was directed to follow the line of retreat, while his left should take a more southerly route by Pittsboroa and Asheboroa, with the expectation that Johnston would follow the line of the railroad southwestward, from Greensboroa to Salisbury. The Nationals were pressing on in pursuit with great vigor, when Sherman received a note April 14. from Johnston, inquiring whether, in order to stop the further effusion of blood, and devastation of property, he was willing to make a temporary suspension of active operations, and to communicate to General Grant the request that he would take like action in regard to other armies, the object being to permit the civil authorities to enter into the needful arrangements to terminate the
