The trains reached Dalton in the afternoon, and were parked and the teams fed. The troops arrived soon thereafter and went into camps. It was just at this point when my frugal meal was being prepared, and the first paragraph of this rambling letter was being invited, that an order came for the trains to move on to Resaca. The roads to this place are pretty good, though almost impassable in places. Several wagons were lost and a good many mules killed on the way, not by the enemy, but by the great holes or gulps and quagmires in the road. I saw no pioneer corps with the trains, the teamsters were left to take care of the wagons as best they could. I am not certain that it would not be an eventual benefit if we should some day lose a train; perhaps the authorities would then see the necessity, recognized i

After night set in the whole army was withdrawn to the east side of the Chickamauga, the trains having preceded it the night before. The roads were in a bad condition, and there were but three bridges over which the troops could retire. But the enemy was too badly crippled to make pursuit, only a small detachment of cavalry followed on the road to Bird's Mills. At Chickamauga Station rations of hard bread and bacon were served out to the men from the depot, and the trains sent forward. Some of the stores were shipped off by the railroad; the remainder was destroyed. The army was put in motion by two o'clock at night on the road to Ringgold, and Gen. Bragg and Gen. Hardee left at daylight next morning. The road was as had as it could be, and but for the friendly light afforded by the moon on that and the preceding night the army could not have effected its escap

old upon the mountain. Having defeated the foe in his front, he immediately ordered his left to form into line across or at right angles to the ridge, and to drive the intruders from his flank. This order, like all others that he had given, was carried out to the letter by his brave command, thus repulsing the enemy in front on his left flank. Had the same skill and energy been displayed at other points on the line further to the left, the Confederates would not have been driven from Missionary Ridge. Reynolds's brigade is composed of the 54th and 63d Virginia regiment, and the 58th and 60th N. C. troops, who have always done well heretofore. And here let me add, at the risk of becoming tedious, that Stevenson's division, composed wholly of "Vicksburg troops," behaved with unsurpassed gallantry. These troops are Tennessean, Alabamians, and Georgians. Gen. Cumming's Georgia brigade never fought so well. The fact here stated should silence forever the thoughtless tongues that

Thursday, Nov. 26th.--After a fatiguing march the army, with its long trains, arrived at Ringgold during the afternoon and night.

t on account of the loss of men, which was inconsiderable, nor the loss of territory, which is far more serious, but chiefly on account of the loss of the moral strength and confidence of the army and the country. Let us not, then, add to our calamity by beginning a war of abuse and condemnation against the chief of the beaten army or the head of the Government. Let us rather strive to reanimate the hopes of the people and the army, bring forward all our strength, and pray that Heaven will yet give us the final victory. In a few days I shall prepare a review of the whole campaign in Northern Georgia, beginning with the evacuation of Chattanooga in September, and closing with the present retreat; and, while I shall not gloss over the error of any one, I shall be able to show that Gen. Bragg has had a most difficult task to perform; that he behaved with unsurpassed courage on the field; and that, if he has been unfortunate, he has also been devoted to the cause. Sallust.
et them fall into the hands of our enemies. Gen. Gist was repeatedly pressed back against the wagons, but he managed finally, with the aid of his brave command, (Walker's division,) to save them all. At one time the enemy got in between him and the main column, but he took a neighborhood road and thus escaped destruction. Unfortunately Ferguson's battery of four guns, belonging to Walker's division, was captured. The horses were in very had condition and unable to keep up with the column, and hence the disaster. The greater part of the men and horses escaped. You will be astonished to hear that the horses in the artillery service — the most important reds of wagons and thousands of men were marching by within a few paces of where it rested. Cleburne was entrusted with the command of the rear guard to-day, Walker's division having been relieved. The Federal pursuing column, numbering, it is estimated, about 10,000 men of all arms, assaulted him before he reached Tunnel Hi
