ine miles, over roads already rendered nearly impassable by the continual passage of heavy trains over them, and in a fair way to become absolutely so as soon as the inevitable mud began. Moreover, he was desirous to concentrate his forces, which were widely dispersed, and therefore continually exposed to attack in detail. It appears evident that he was in the act of executing this movement in retreat when he was attacked. It was comparatively easy for the enemy to gain possession of Lookout Mountain after so large a portion of the force which originally held it had been withdrawn. The impression prevailed the other day that the centre had been routed. This dispirited our people more than anything else, for our troops had never before been routed in fair fight, although they had been sometimes compelled to retreat. It turns out, however, that it was only the "left centre" (that is, the extreme left of the centre) that had been routed. This makes a very great difference. The
tended to overlap our line and compel us to stretch it out to a length that would render it very long and very weak. Can it be that he means to threaten our depot of supplies at Chickamauga station, and at the same time to draw us away from Lookout Mountain? The idea that Grant desires to advance his lines in order to get more room and a further supply of firewood, as has been suggested, will not hear the test of reason. A movement on so large and imposing a scale looks to ulterior objects, and is intended to initiate operations upon a broad and comprehensive scale. The first result of such a movement will be to compel Gen. Bragg to weaken his forces on Lookout Mountain (his left) to reinforce his right, which is comparatively weak. Indeed, orders to this effect have already been given, and are now being executed. It will never do to let the enemy turn our right and get possession of our depot at Chickamauga. Gen. Bragg, therefore, must choose between Lookout and Chickamauga.
The Daily Dispatch: November 30, 1863., [Electronic resource], Army of Tennessee. Missionary Ridge, Nov. 24th--. (search)
Army of Tennessee. Missionary Ridge, Nov. 24th--Midnight. Well, the enemy has assaulted Lookout Mountain to-day sure enough, as was intimated in my letter of last night he probably would do. Having accomplished a part of the object of his demonstration yesterday — to wit: the transfer of a portion of our forces on the mountain to the extreme right, he attacked the mountain with a confidence which the sequel will show was not misplaced.--The great rise in the Tennessee had carried awaChickamauga, in the direction of the station of that name. The loss of Lookout Valley and Brown's Ferry removed all doubt as to the ability of Gen'l Grant to subsist his army at Chattanooga this winter, and rendered the longer possession of Lookout Mountain of comparatively little importance, and now that the mountain has passed into his hands there is no reason left why we should longer remain in the mud and water around Chattanooga. Besides Grant has been throwing a heavy force up the river
-We captured nine commissioned officers and about one hundred enlisted men. Our loss was about III men. To-day Gen. Hooker, in command of Geary's division of the 12th corps, and two brigades of the 14th corps, carried the North slope of Lookout Mountain, with small loss on our side, and a loss to the enemy of five or six hundred prisoners. The killed and wounded are not reported. There has been continuous fighting from 12 o'clock until after nightfall, but our troops have gallantly reploss is not heavy. Gen. Hooker reports 2,000 prisoners taken, besides which a small number have fallen into our hands from Missionary Ridge. [Signed] U. S. Grant, Major Gen. Chattanooga,Nov. 25--Bragg evacuated the summit of Lookout Mountain last night, and our troops occupy it. The enemy, however, still holds the rifle pits on the base of Missionary Ridge.

Breckinridge. The following is the latest dispatch from Grant. Chattanooga, Nov. 25.--7:15 P. M. --To Mayor Gen.Halleck, General in Chief; --Although the battle lasted from early down until dark this evening, I believe I am not premature in announcing a complete victory over Bragg. Lookout Mountain top, all the rifle pits in Chattanooga Valley, and Missionary Ridge entire, have fallen into our hands. [Signed]U. S. Grant Major Gen. Dispatches from Meade's army place A. P. Hill's corps at Mitchell's Ford, and Ewell's corps at Raccoon and Morton fords. They claim that if Meads gets possession of the Fredericksburg and Central roads he will have the shortest route to Richmond, and get there first. Where will Lee be?
