d under the corps command of General Cheatham, and was among those in the march upon Franklin, November 30, 1864, when Schofield (whom we first became acquainted with as a captain at Oak Hills), now a general, commanded the Federal army that halted at Nashville, seventeen miles distant, behind permanent fortifications deemed impregnable. Hood resolved to intercept Schofield or destroy him before he could reach Thomas, and overtook him at Franklin. Schofield threw up earthworks and formed abSchofield threw up earthworks and formed abatis across the isthmus of a peninsula made by a bend of the pretty little Harpeth river. The country around Franklin had been long cultivated, and presented no cover for the approach of an attacking force. A few trees, forming a grove here and th just outside. The army could not stand the unequal fight. It drew off to move against some other point of attack. Schofield moved out as soon as it was dark, and by midnight had his army mainly at Nashville. General Hood took possession of th

Meanwhile, as we have seen, when Hood had once crossed the Chattahoochee, Sherman was obliged, however reluctantly, to follow; but still, as corps after corps was sent north in pursuit, his despatches were full of suggestions of counter-moves; he was looking back constantly to the fields that he preferred. Keep your folks ready, he said to Schofield, to send baggage into Atlanta, and to start on short notice. If we make a countermove, I will go out myself with a large force, and take such a route as will supply us, and at the same time make Hood recall the whole or part of his army. Thomas had now arrived in Chattanooga, and on the 30th of September, Sherman said to him: There is no doubt some of Hood's infantry is across the Chattahoochee, but I don't think his whole army is across. If he moves his whole force to Blue Mountain, yo

Schofield reached Johnsonville on the night of the 5th at Pulaski until the 14th of November, when Schofield arrived and was placed in command of all thet of the rebel army. Thomas had now under Schofield's orders twenty-two thousand infantry and aby-third corps, about 10,000, under Major-General J. M. Schofield; Hatch's division of cavalry, abourom Missouri and Wilson remount his cavalry, Schofield's force was therefore inferior to Hood's; buis consideration all others were secondary. Schofield was accordingly instructed to watch the moveritical moment, both on the right and left. Schofield had first been sent with an entire corps to not think higher of Sheridan and Thomas and Schofield than he did, nor than they deserved; that thmarvelling at what he said about Thomas, and Schofield, and Sheridan, and most of all Sherman, othe[13 more...]

ridge admitted that slavery was dead, and I could not insist on embracing it in such a paper, because it can be made with the states in detail. I know that all the men of substance South sincerely want peace, and I do not believe they will resort to war again during this century. I have no doubt that they will in future be perfectly subordinate to the laws of the United States. The moment my action in this matter is approved, I can spare five corps, and will ask for orders to leave General Schofield here with the Tenth corps, and to march myself with the Fourteenth, Fifteenth, Seventeenth, Twentieth, and Twenty-third corps via Burkesville and Gordonsville to Frederick or Hagerstown, Maryland, there to be paid and mustered out. The question of finance is now the chief one, and every soldier and officer not needed should be got home at work. I would like to be able to begin the march north by May 1st.

priate to the occasion. You will very much oblige us by sending by return mail a contribution that you may deem suitable. Such was the request sent out to a number of prominent men in various walks of life. Here are the answers: General J. M. Schofield, commander of the United States Army. I will say that it was the well-known character of the Southern soldiers, of which that of General Robert E. Lee was the highest type, which made it possible for the Union army to regard the Co be ether punished or pardoned, but as honorable antagonists, worthy to become trusted friends when they had laid down their arms. Thus this high character became of inestimable value to the Southern people, and hence to the whole country. J. M. Schofield. Washington, D. C. Admiral Porter, of the Navy. No man should hesitate to bear testimony to the reputation of General Robert E. Lee as one of the greatest soldiers of the civil war. But for his generalship the Southern Confede
