ver it might be. While at Nashville, Buell's whole force in Tennessee and Kentucky consisted of seven divisions, with detached troops for guarding his communications, maintaining order, and otherwise providing for his safety, and amounted, in the aggregate, to 94,783 men of all arms. The army presented an effective force for the field of 73,472 men, of which 60,882 were infantry, 9237 cavalry, and 3368 artillery, with twenty-eight field and two siege batteries of six guns each. See Van Horne's Army of the Cumberland, vol. i. p. 99. On the 15th Buell commenced his march, with five divisions, as already stated, to effect leisurely the junction ordered by General Halleck; while one division, the 7th, under General G. W. Morgan, went to East Tennessee, and another, the 3d, under General O. M. Mitchell, to pursue General Johnston and destroy the Memphis and Charleston Railroad south of Fayetteville. Neither of these last-named operations was performed with much celerity. O
ns occupied by the Federal forces on the morning of the 7th are still more definitely given in Van Horne's History of the Army of the Cumberland, vol. i. pp. 109, 111, as follows: General Buell passing in front of McCook. The Hamburg road penetrated the line near Nelson's left. When Van Horne states that the Hamburg road passed perpendicularly through the Federal line near Nelson's lefsorely pressed, and was in serious danger of being turned on its left. This brigade [says Van Horne] fought gallantly to maintain a position second to none on the field, but at length began to g had reached the field early in the morning and taken a position near General Sherman's left. Van Horne says: Thus, McCook followed Crittenden in attacking the enemy. This division met the sa that these divisions contained no less than seven thousand men each, as is established by General Van Horne, in his History of the Army of the Cumberland, vol. i. p. 99, where the following passage
ceived any intimation that General Grant was in danger, or that he (Buell) should hurry up with his forces. But in order that we may not be suspected of a disposition to be unfair towards the distinguished generals referred to, we quote from Van Horne's History of the Army of the Cumberland, vol. i. pp. 102 et seq., as follows: General Buell had not yet On the 31st of March. received an intimation that General Grant was in any danger, or that there was need of haste in the movement hat he was ready for the Confederate attack on the morning of the 6th contradicts his former statements. It certainly weakens in nothing the preponderance of evidence offered by us, nor does it, in any way, impair the force of what is said in Van Horne's History of the Army of the Cumberland. The discussion of this point has made it clear that not only Sherman's division, but the entire Federal army, was taken by surprise. That General Sherman should deny it to-day, with such bitterness of
ganized, subdivided, and located, amounted, as we have already stated, to about one hundred and twenty-five thousand men, with General Halleck, as first, and General Grant, as second, in command. See History of the Army of the Cumberland, by Van Horne, vol. i. pp. 126-130. The Confederate army, under General Beauregard, with the reinforcement of Van Dorn's seventeen thousand men, numbered about fifty thousand, but was daily decreasing on account of sickness. General Pope's recent success the direction of Corinth, and heard the report of an exploding magazine. Corinth was evacuated, and Beauregard had achieved another triumph. I do not know how the matter strikes abler military men, but I think we have been fooled, etc. Van Horne, in his History of the Army of the Cumberland, Vol. i. pp. 128, 129. speaks of General Halleck's superior numbers at Corinth, and of his gradual approaches, step by step, to his objective. He also describes several heavy skirmishes and othe
ution to meet any advance that might be attempted against him the hoped that, once concentrated and reorganized in his new position, the enemy would soon be compelled to divide his ponderous forces, thereby materially improving our condition, and demonstrating the judiciousness of the diversion previously undertaken in middle Tennessee. As soon as it became evident that the enemy did not intend to attack our forces at Tupelo, and that two of his divisions—Mc-Cook's and Crittenden's, Van Horne's History of the Army of the Cumberland, vol. i. p. 142. and, as reported, others also Captain L. E. Hill's telegram to General Beauregard.—were moving eastward, General Beauregard, relieved from the harassing duties that had so absorbed him of late, was able to attend more directly to the recuperation, discipline, and comfort of his command. On the 9th he addressed a communication to General Cooper, calling his attention to the necessity of furnishing funds for the payment of his
