eral. Official. W. H. Taylor, A. A. G. 2. Headquarters, Petersburg, June 18th, 1864:11.30 A. M. General Braxton Bragg, Richmond, Va.: Occupied last night my new lines without impediment. Kershaw's division arrived about half-past 7, and Field's at about half-past 9 o'clock. They are being placed in position. All comparatively quiet this morning. General Lee has just arrived. G. T. Beauregard, General. 3. Extract from a letter of General Kershaw to General Beauregard. Camden, S. C., July 22d, 1876. My dear General,—* * * I have been induced to think over the matter more carefully, and am now reminded that my position, when first in line of battle at Petersburg, was, as you remember, with my right on or near the Jerusalem plank-road, extending across the open field, and bending back towards the front of the Cemetery. * * * The first of my division that arrived took the cars sent for them, and marched through the city while I was at your quarters. The sun was jus
all follow the movement as they are uncovered from the left. 9th. The rear-guard of the troops executing these movements shall destroy all bridges and trestle behind them, and railroads, when possible. 10th. The troops concentrated at St. Stephen's shall move to form a junction with the troops at Columbia, or with the same at Chesterville, following one of the routes, according to the movements of the enemy, as follows: 1st. Via Manchester and Kingsville to Columbia or Manchester, Camden, and Brown's Ferry, on the Catawba, to Chesterville. 2d. Via Darlington, Kelly's Bridge, on Lynch's Creek, and Brown's Ferry, on the Catawba, to Chesterville. 3d. Via Cheraw, Chesterville, Lancaster, and Brown's Ferry, on the Catawba, to Chesterville. In view of the facility the enemy has at Branchville and Orangeburg, and in the direction of Columbia, to cut the line of retreat of the garrison of Charleston, as above referred to, it becomes necessary to commence the evacuation as s
wing, crossing at Rocky Mount, after a delay of several days, also began its march towards Cheraw. In the mean time, according to General Sherman, Memoirs of General W. T. Sherman, p. 288. Kilpatrick, with his force of cavalry, had been ordered to make a feint in the direction of Lancaster, so as to lead General Beauregard into the belief that the whole Federal army would soon be marching upon Charlotte. General Beauregard was perfectly aware of Kilpatrick's presence on the Lancaster and Camden road; See, in Appendix, his despatch of 27th to General Lee. but he was convinced, nevertheless, as is shown by his despatch of the 24th to General Lee, that the enemy's movements would seem to indicate Cheraw and Fayetteville as their present objective. See, in Appendix, his despatch of that date to General Lee The tenor of this latter despatch and its date, which corresponds with the arrival of Kilpatrick near Lancaster, are proof sufficient that the delusion so complacently referr
I think that you might get some troops from Charleston, if they were sent by rail at once to Camden. The road to Camden, as you are aware, turns off from the Wilmington Railroad, seven miles beyoCamden, as you are aware, turns off from the Wilmington Railroad, seven miles beyond Kingsville. Now, if troops could come up to the junction of the Camden and Wilmington road, they could hold the crossings of the Wateree till you could get reinforcements to them. The swamp is veCamden and Wilmington road, they could hold the crossings of the Wateree till you could get reinforcements to them. The swamp is very wide and very difficult, even in the best weather, so that a small body of troops could check a much larger one. I could send some cavalry to aid, if necessary. If Sherman comes this way, you wils enemy moving towards Catawba River. I think they intend to cross low down, or to move towards Camden. Scouts report them leaving Broad River and moving east. Wade Hampton, Lieut.-Genl. Memo be sent by rail, either in the direction of the Santee River or towards Manchester, or even to Camden, as may become most judicious, in view of known movements of the enemy.
