the troops were everywhere taken at
a disadvantage by the sudden attack.
Divisions nnd brigades were whirled
into action from time to time without
connection with each other. The Con
federate ndr.inco was furious and up
patently with little regard for the loss
of lifu so long us thu enemy wait driv

on tbo Tennessee river. Johnston's
aim was to drive Grant Into the river
beforo help could reach him from Gen

was marching to the Held from the
cast side of tbo Tennessee.

ordered General I.ew Wallace, whoso

tuu scene of the lighting. Wallace bad
5,000 men, but through u mlscoueep

The key to tho last position held by
Wallace and Hurlhiirt on the think of
I'roiitlsi was n thicket on the creM of
a hill. In flout vns an open Held
swept by Federal batteries. For live
hours tho Confederates hurled brigade
nfter brigade upon the thicket, and ult
were repulsed with frightful carnage.
At last the tcsyrves of Ilre.cUliiiidgu
were called In to make a last attempt.
John.ston saw the desperate situation
nnd nnld: "They nre making a stub
born fight here. I shall have to put
the bajonet to them." Several regi

colled under the lire.

magnlflcent thoroughbred charger,
Flro l'alcr, spoke a few words of en
couragement to the halting Tennes
seeaiis and said, "I will lend you." At
this signal two whole brigades rushed
across the field, shouting wildly as (
they met tho storm of lead from tho 1
ciest. The ehuige went home. Tho J
enemy turned nnd retreated. One of
the straying bullets fired in ret I eat
struck Johnston, and Iu nn hour he
was dead. Hut thu hill, thu "Hornets'
