ck, telling him that he should not be able to communicate with him again, the latter was receiving the first despatch informing him of Grant's plan. The excitement in Washington was very great, it being only a few days after the defeat at Chancellorsville. The President and his military advisers were frightened at Grant's rashness, and Halleck sent him at once a despatch in which he was directed to retrace his steps in order to carry out the first project of a junction with Banks. As Grant g the number of troops engaged, could not compare with the great conflicts we have already mentioned, but it produced results far more important than most of those great hecatombs, like Shiloh, Fair Oaks, Murfreesborough, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville, which left the two adversaries fronting each other, both unable to resume the fight.

ly experienced by each of the two parties. Before commencing the narration of the decisive battle of Gettysburg we provoked on the causes of Lee's defeat a discussion of this kind, which has been to us of great help; it has been published in the Southern Historical Society's Papers, thanks to the kindness of the editor, the Rev. J. Wm. Jones, who solicited on this point the opinion of some of the principal officers of the Confederate army. The special works of Hotchkiss and Allan on Chancellorsville, of Bates on Gettysburg—the one written from the Southern standpoint, the other from the Northern—as well as the maps published by the former and that of Bachelder of Gettysburg, have been for us invaluable guides. But the most useful documents for such a work are those which emanate from the actors themselves, and which are written at the first moment, when facts are too recent to allow any glossing of the truth. Unfortunately, the printed reports of Lee and his subordinates stop af
