en hours, the troops were ordered to move to Cassville. Two roads lead southward from Adairsvil the Etowah Railroad-bridge, passing through Cassville, where it is met by the first. The probabiling the direct road, halted within a mile of Cassville — the former deployed in two lines, crossinging the war --the ridge immediately south of Cassville, with a broad, open, elevated valley in fron this ridge is perhaps a mile to the east of Cassville. Its southwest end is near the railroad, a ce to that contradiction, April 10, 1867: At Cassville, May 19th, about ten o'clock in the evening,eral Polk's quarters when the abandonment of Cassville was proposed, but, being afterward called tht required for outpost duty, and move toward Cassville, to ascertain in what direction the Federal e troops guarding a large supply-train, near Cassville, he brought off seventy loaded wagons, with th; French's, of four thousand, joined us at Cassville on the 18th; and Quarles's brigade, of twent[2 more...]

to divide our army, and turn all his positions without risk from any quarter. General Johnston, however, as he abandoned his intrenched positions, conducted his retreat, in my judgment, in a prudent and consummate manner, both in strategy and tactics. All the positions chosen for making a stand were selected with the utmost sagacity and skill, and his defenses were thrown up and strengthened with the exercise of marvelous ingenuity and judgment.

After this the march was continued to the south side of the Etowah via Adairsville, and Cassville; some slight skirmishing at the latter place. On the morning of the 24th the march was resumed in the direction of Dallas, and, on the morning of the 25th, with my entire command, I arrived at New Hope Church, four miles east of Dallas. About mid-day the enemy was reported advancing, when my line was forward, Hindman on the left, Stewart in the centre, and Stevenson on the right. At five o'clock P. M. a very determined attack was made upon Stewart, extending along a very small portion
