ted under fire impressed me, and I have often wondered who the officer was. One of the officers present was able to tell to whom General Mills' tribute of bravery applied. He was General Carman. After a careful examination of the map, General Carman decided that the brigade was that of General John M. Loomis, composed of the Twenty-sixth and Ninetieth Illinois and the Twelfth and One Hundredth Indiana. General Loomis, General Carman said, is, or was until quite recently, a resident of Chicago. The other story of Chattanooga related to the wonderful assault upon Missionary Ridge. It was told by General Joe Reynolds, who was on the staff of General Thomas. This officer pointed out on the map the elevation in front of Chattanooga where General Grant and General Thomas took position to see the grand advance of the divisions against the Confederate works at the bottom of the ridge. Back of these works rose the precipitous front of the ridge. It was Grant's plan of battle to ha

It was told by General Joe Reynolds, who was on the staff of General Thomas. This officer pointed out on the map the elevation in front of Chattanooga where General Grant and General Thomas advance to the foot of the ridge, and carrying the works there, was to await orders, and move up to the summit at the proper time. Grant and Thomas, said General Reynolds, watched the advance through their glasses. They exchanged very few words. The long lines were in full view to us in the rear, as they moved forward n my brigade. I replied: That is the Eighty-sixth Indiana, I think, and it is going up the hill. General Thomas turned to General Grant and said: General Reynolds says he thinks it is the Eighty-sixth Indiana, and that it is going up the hill. General Grant gazed through his glasses for some time, until it was evide

The Bond of heroism. Blending of the blue and gray. The Chicago Tribune of July 14, 1894, republishes the following from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.: At General H. V. Boynton's talk about the Chattanooga campaign, before the Army and Navy Club, two good war stories were told. The audience embraced distinguished ex-Confederates as well as ex-Union officers, together with many officers of the regular army. General Roger Q.
