At last Johnston, who with Beauregard and Jackson, was a Confederate commander, strengthened by reenforcements, descended upon the rear of the Union troops and drove them into a retreat which rapidly turned to a rout.

Many opportunities were lost, even in the very campaigns mentioned, as we see them to-day. The conduct of pursuits confirms the idea that it is the most difficult operation presented to a general.
