to divert the Federal forces toward the Red river, but this Grant strongly opposed. I shall direct Sherman, he wrote, to move out to Meridian with his spare force (the cavalry going from Corinth) and destroy the roads east and south of there so effectually that the enemy will not attempt to rebuild them during the rebellion. He will then return unless the opportunity of going into Mobile with the force he has appears perfectly plain. Meanwhile nothing more would be done at Chattanooga by Thomas than to threaten Johnston, who had succeeded Bragg in north Georgia, and try to hold his force there. I look upon the next line for me to secure to be that from Chattanooga to Mobile; Montgomery and Atlanta being the important intermediate points. The destruction which Sherman will do the roads around Meridian will be of material importance to us in preventing the enemy from drawing supplies from Mississippi and in clearing that section of all large bodies of rebel troops.

lity, which was abandoned by act of its Legislature in September. There were about 34,000 Federal volunteers and 6,000 Home Guards assembled in that State under General Robert Anderson, of Fort Sumter fame, and he had with him Generals Sherman, Thomas and Nelson. The Confederacy had 4,000 poorly-armed and badly-equipped troops at Cumberland Gap under General Zollicoffer, guarding the only line of Communication between Virginia and Tennessee. Eastern Tennessee was hostile to the Confederacy,irected against Bowling Green and his left was advancing against Zollicoffer at Mill springs on the upper Cumberland. The campaign opened with the defeat of the Confederates under Crittenden and Zollicoffer on the 19th of January, 1862, by General Thomas at Mill springs, or Fishing creek. While the loss was not severe, it ended with a rout, which left General Johnston's right flank exposed. To then reduce the force at Columbus would imperil the Mississippi river, nor could he hazard the

es of Cold Harbor and Turkey Ridge before Richmond. About the middle of June we participated in the battle of Petersburg, where Colonel Harris was severely wounded in the head. The regimental officers were at that time M. B. Harris, colonel; S. B. Thomas, lieutenant-colonel; J. R. Bell, major, and E. Howard McCaleb, adjutant. On the 18th of August we retook the position occupied by General J. V. B. Girardey's Georgia Brigade, on the north side of James river, in front of Richmond; returned, and taken North, without his consent, to spend the winter. From the 30th of July to the 21st of August, 1864, Harris' Mississippi Brigade lost 14 killed, 103 wounded, and 131 missing in battles around Petersburg. During this time Lieutenant-Colonel S. B. Thomas, than whom a braver or truer soldier never existed, commanded the bloody 12th Regiment. I cannot speak of the operations of our command after that time, having, as I said before, been wounded and taken prisoner. A historian of th
