The Japanese soldiers are being spoken of as the greatest of the age, almost without comparison for dash and courage. Comparison is too vast a Confederate army lay east of Chickamauga. This was a position fraught with great jeopardy for General Bragg. Had Rosecrans been such a man as General Lee, or Jackson or Forrest, he would have made use of it. The battle was now near at hand.
