On Aug. 28 and Oct. 10, 1863, Burwell wrote to President Abraham Lincoln regarding the political situation in Miss. and Mo. ALS, DLC-Robert T. Lincoln.

To Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman

Head Quarters, Mil. Div. of the Miss.
Chattanooga Ten. Nov. 20th 1863.

MAJ. GEN. W. T. SHERMAN,
COMD. G DEPT. & ARMY OF THE TN.
GEN.

To-morrow morning 1 is the time I had first set for your attack. I see now it cannot possibly be made then, but can you not get up for the following morning? Order Ewing down immediately fixing the time for his starting so that the roads and bridge will be full all the time. I see no necessity for him moving by a circuitous route, but you can bring him as you deem proper reflecting that time is of vast importance to us now that the enemy are undeceived as to our move up to Trenton. 2

Every effort must be made to get up in time to attack on Sunday morning.

Very respectfully
U. S. GRANT
Maj. Gen. Com

ALS, PHi. O. R., I, xxxi, part 2, 37. On Thursday, Nov. 19, 1863, Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman, Bridgeport, Ala., had telegraphed to USG. "Genl Ewing arrived at Trenton yesterday at 10 A. M. John E. Smiths Div. is all on the march and the two other Divisions and the two other Divisions are crossing the river now. I start myself to day. It is rather slow work crossing the Bridge here but we worked almost all night. I will be at Shell. Mound or Whitesides tonight & about Gen'l. Hookers tomorrow. I will keep the column closed up & reach the camp opposite Chattanooga soon as possible—" Copies, DNA, RG 393, Dept.
