to communicate with and afford him all the aid in his power. General Beauregard arrived at Chesterville on the night of the 20th. He remained there until the next day, at 10 A. M., when he left for Charlotte, N. C., having lost all hope of concentrating at Chester, with Hardee's, Cheatham's, and Stewart's forces. From Chesterville, on the 21st, General Beauregard sent the following telegram to President Davis: Should enemy advance into North Carolina, towards Charlotte and Salisbury, as is now almost certain, I earnestly urge a concentration in time of at least thirty-five thousand infantry and artillery at latter point, if possible, to give him battle there and crush him; then to concentrate all forces against Grant, and then to march on Washington to dictate a peace: Hardee and myself can collect about fifteen thousand men, exclusive of Cheatham and Stewart, not likely to reach in time. If Lee and Bragg could furnish twenty thousand more, the fate of the Confederac
he probable movement of some of the enemy's cavalry, his personal direction, at Greensboroa or Salisbury, might soon be required. He therefore, without further delay, returned to his headquarters atng Lenoir's Station, and that he should communicate with Brigadier-General Bradley Johnson, at Salisbury, or, if necessary, go to that point himself, and issue all orders required to meet the emergenr, he had also telegraphed General S. D. Lee, at Chester, S. C., to stop part of his forces at Salisbury, to meet and defeat the enemy. In his answer to General Johnston he acquainted him with the vilroad, and desired that, for the present, troops should be ordered to stop at Greensboroa and Salisbury. And it might be well, he thought, for General Beauregard himself to go as far as Greensboroay (31st) General Beauregard also received from General Featherstone, of S. D. Lee's troops, at Salisbury, the information that he had two brigades with him, and another expected the next morning, as
4000, then operating around Greensboroa and Salisbury, and which, though not originally belonging ach, General Beauregard left Greensboroa for Salisbury. His purpose was, if possible, to confer wiion to be made of all available troops, from Salisbury to Greensboroa. As Salisbury appeared to bestrenuously advised concentration at or near Salisbury, with a reinforcement of twenty thousand menthreatening our lines of communication, from Salisbury to Danville; and that he feared, every momenat he, General Beauregard, was collecting at Salisbury, Greensboroa, and Danville all the remnants to unite with you at the Yadkin, in front of Salisbury. And this seems to me to be the most easy mGeneral Johnston, on the Yadkin, in front of Salisbury. You will keep in communication with Generan. Five hundred men were accordingly sent to Salisbury on the 12th, and minute instructions forwarded to Greensboroa on the 19th, and thence to Salisbury, carrying with him a copy of the liberal agr[5 more...]
nd the second, Captain F. D. Lee, who had been in charge of the Torpedo Department at Charleston, became a major. This was tardy justice; and it is surprising, when we remember the confusion prevailing at that time in the Executive Bureaus, that even so much was obtained. As an illustration of the intense preoccupation then existing among some of the high civil functionaries of the defunct Government, General Beauregard relates that, shortly after the President had left Greensboroa for Salisbury and Charlotte, he noticed at the depot, at Greensboroa, a train of box-cars, from one of which some straggling soldiers were throwing out papers which were flying to and fro in every direction. Upon inquiry it was ascertained that these cars contained the official records of the Government from Richmond, and had been abandoned there, without a guard, and without directions as to the disposition to be made of them. General Beauregard gave orders at once that sentinels should be put over t
