The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant: July 7 - December 31, 1863 - Vol. 9

By John Y. Simon; Ulysses S. Grant | Go to book overview

been busy but have had company 2 occupying my room making it almost impossible for me to write any thing. —Last week was a stiring time with us and a magnificent victory was won. I am sorry you could not be here. The specticle was grand beyond anything that has been, or is likely to be, on this Continent. It is the first battle field I have ever seen where a plan could be followed and from one place the whole field be within one view. At the Commencement the battle line was fifteen miles long. Hooker on our right soon carried the point of Lookout Mountain, and Sherman the North end of Missionary ridge thus shortening the line by five or six miles and bringing the whole within one view. Our troops behaved most magnificently and have inflicted on the enemy the heavyest blow they have received during the war.

Your Galena friends with me are all well and desire to be remembered.
