musket shots from our line of investment, that overshot their mark, went into the habitations of women and children. General Hardee did the same at Jonesboroa, and General Johnston did the same, last summer, at Jackson, Mississippi. I have not accu unfortunate in your attempt to find a justification for this act of cruelty, either in the defence of Jonesboroa, by General Hardee, or of Atlanta, by myself. General Hardee defended his position in front of Jonesboroa at the expense of injury to tGeneral Hardee defended his position in front of Jonesboroa at the expense of injury to the houses; an ordinary, proper, and justifiable act of war. I defended Atlanta at the same risk and cost. If there was any fault in either case, it was your own, in not giving notice, especially in the case of Atlanta, of your purpose to shell the thich is usual in war among civilized nations. No inhabitant was expelled from his home and fireside by the orders of General Hardee or myself, and therefore your recent order can find no support from the conduct of either of us.

igh regard President Davis entertained for General Hardee, I suggested to the latter to telegraph tohe interest of the Confederacy, because of General Hardee's failure to obey instructions on the 20thenant General Taylor be ordered to relieve General Hardee, bringing with him all the troops he can. The unfortunate events connected with General Hardee's service during the siege of Atlanta, renttle of July 20th, we failed on account of General Hardee. Our success on the 22d July was not what Atlanta. It is of the utmost importance that Hardee should be relieved at once. He commands the br commander. Taylor or Cheatham will answer. Hardee handed in his resignation a few days since, bufter failure on two consecutive occasions, was Hardee placed in command at Jonesboroa; why I did notary to send their two corps to Jonesboroa, and Hardee, the superior officer in rank, of course assumnd do so with the more sincere regret that General Hardee is no longer able to speak in his own defe[7 more...]
, would, in my opinion, have given us our independence. He was for the first time under my immediate command at New Hope Church where his Division, formed for action according to my specific instructions, achieved the most brilliant success of Johnston's campaign. He had full knowledge of all the circumstances and difficulties which attended the battles of the 20th, and 22d of July. It will be remembered that he called at my headquarters after these two engagements, and communicated to me Hardee's unfortunate words of caution to the troops, in regard to breastworks, just before the battle of the 20th. He knew also in what manner my orders at Spring Hill had been totally disregarded. After our last brief interview which was followed so quickly by his death, I sought to account for his sudden revolution of feeling and his hopefulness, since he had been regarded as not over sanguine of the final triumph of our cause. I formed the conviction that he became satisfied on the morning of

Hardee's and Lee's Corps moved accordingly, Hardee in command. It was impressed upon General Haras the loss of eight guns and some prisoners. Hardee then retired to Lovejoy's Station, where he wand immediately and cross the Etowah, Lieutenant General Hardee, whose position I thought weakest, w General Johnston, in the presence of Generals Hardee and Polk, to move back upon the enemy and atta amounted to almost an engagement for a week. Hardee's Corps had been placed on my left to check three Army Corps. I accordingly reported to General Hardee at General Hood's headquarters; was adviseded for my corps to move immediately after General Hardee's. The rear of Hardee's Corps was in motioback was extending still further to the left. Hardee's fire on my right had ceased just after we mo[40 more...]
