On the 2nd of November, he appeared before Johnsonville, the western terminus of a short railroad connecting Nashville with the Tenn Twenty-third corps, and Thomas at once directed the entire corps to move to Johnsonville, instead of Pulaski. Schofield reached Johnsonville on the night of the 5thJohnsonville on the night of the 5th of November, but found that the enemy had already disappeared. Thomas then instructed him to leave a strong force to protect the place, and with the remainder of hin the right and left. Schofield had first been sent with an entire corps to Johnsonville, and afterwards ordered to leave a portion of his command in that neighborho Hood. For, if the principal rebel army of the West was destroyed, not only Johnsonville and Morristown, but both East and West Tennessee, could easily be regained.
k, November 21. His only resource, he declared, was to retire slowly, delaying the enemy's progress as much as possible, to gain time for reinforcements to arrive, and concentrate. The portion of the Twenty-third corps which had been left at Johnsonville was now brought rapidly up to Schofield; and as all possibility of Hood's forces following Sherman was at an end, the garrisons along the Memphis and Chattanooga railroad were called in; but according to Thomas's invariable policy of guarding town, converging, like the sticks of an open fan. The principal ones, beginning on the national right, are the Charlotte, Hardin, Hillsboroa, Granny White, Franklin, Nolensville, and Murfreesboroa roads. Besides these, the three railroads to Johnsonville, Decatur, and Chattanooga, all meet at Nashville, but all were controlled by the rebels. The Cumberland river was also closed above and below the town, and Thomas's only avenue of communication was towards the north. To the south, the hill

In the fall of 1864, it reported to General Forrest at Corinth, and took part in the raid on Johnsonville and the fighting as Hood moved toward Nashville. It suffered severely at this time, especially in the night attack on Brentwood.

iantly successful in capturing Federal steamers. The Mazeppa, with two barges in tow, was the first to make an appearance, and, being disabled by the artillery, made for the opposite shore, when the crew escaped. She was then towed over and the valuable cargo of military stores removed, after which the vessel was burned. The steamer Anna was the next victim, then the gunboat Undine and the transports Cheeseman and Venus. On the 3d of November, with his whole command, Forrest attacked Johnsonville, where the enemy had an immense storehouse and a wharf lined with transports and gunboats, protected not only by the gunboats but a battery of 14 guns on the hill. Opening upon this force with the batteries of Thrall and Morton and Hudson (Pettus Flying artillery), 50 guns became engaged on both sides. The gunboats were soon set on fire by the Confederate artillery, next the stores along the shore and the warehouse. By night the wharf for nearly a mile up and down the river presented o
river with a demoralized command, 100 or more miles distant, at Johnsonville, doubtless listening to the echo of Walton's guns. The fruits's escort flag nailed to the masthead, with orders to proceed to Johnsonville, where Captain Gracy expected the co-operation of the land batteries. Some miles below Johnsonville, however, four gunboats from above moved down on his craft, and after a spirited engagement Captain Grae forces under Forrest moved up the river, arriving on the 3d at Johnsonville. This was a depot of supplies for the Federal armies in the fieion. Thrall's battery of howitzers was placed in front, above Johnsonville, and Morton's and Hudson's batteries opposite and below the townarched six miles after night, guided by the light of the fire at Johnsonville. In a campaign of two weeks the forces of Forrest had captured ted that one million dollars would cover the loss of property at Johnsonville.

tions Forrest was again badly wounded; but, notwithstanding this misfortune, he took the field once more early the fallowing August. Unable to ride, he followed in a buggy. He struck at Sherman's line of communication, tore up railroads, destroyed bridges and viaducts, captured gunboats, burned transports and many millions of dollars worth of stores and supplies of all sorts. Well justified, indeed, was Sherman when he wrote to Grant in November, 1864: That devil Forrest was down about Johnsonville, making havoc among the gunboats and transports. He took part in General Hood's disastrous Nashville campaign, and covered the retreat of that general's army from Columbia. This most trying of duties he discharged with his usual daring, ability and success. No man could have done more than he did with the small force then at his disposal. Throughout the winter of 1864-65 everything looked blacker for the Confederacy day by day, until at last all hope faded away and the end came. It

ire and fight their way out. On reaching the plankroad, all companies reformed, and a retrograde movement ensued. This was considered a brilliant affair, and one attended with great danger, as it was a night attack, clearly within the enemy's lines and against superior numbers, with the prospect of having Grierson's cavalry come in the rear, and thus cut off our only means of retreat. A million dollars worth of supplies intended for Banks' army were destroyed. The writer witnessed at Johnsonville, on the Tennessee river, in November, 1864, such another sight, when General Forrest destroyed Sherman's military supplies, together with several gunboats and many transports—a conflagration once seen never to be forgotten or effaced from the human mind. So strenuous had been these daring raids and attacks by the Confederate cavalry on the enemy, that General Banks at last concluded to take active measures to destroy or drive from his flank and rear the forces under Colonel Powers; and,
