raxton Bragg. On assuming command, Lt. Gen. Hardee issued the following General Order: Soldiers of the Army of Tennessee: General Bragg having been relieved from duty with the army, the command has devolved upon me. The steady courage, the unsullied patriotism of the distinguished leader who has shared your fortunes for more than a year, will long be remembered by this army and the country he served so well. I desire to say, in assuming the command, that this is no cause for discouragement. The overwhelming numbers of the enemy forced us from Missionary Ridge, but the army retired intact and in good heart. Our losses are small, and will be rapidly repaired. The country is looking upon you. Only the weak tide need be cheered by constant success. Veterans of Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro', and Chickamauga, require no such stimulant to sustain their courage. Let the past take care of itself. We can and must take care of the future. [Signed,] W. J. Hardee.
