HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT, )
Nashville, July '27, 18G3,t J
My Dear Governor: T have for a long
time wanted to write to you, not only to
acknowledge your Inst kind letter, but
also to say some things confidentially on
the movements, in this department; but 1
have refrained hitherto lest I do injustice
to a good man and say to you things which
were better left unsaid. We have now,
however, reached a point upon which I
feel it proper, and also due to that kind
opinion which I believe you have had of
me, to acquaint you with the condition of
I cannot conceal from you the fact that
I have been greatly tried and dissatisfied
with the slow progress that we h ive made
in this department since the battle of
Stone River. I will say in the outset, that
it would be in the highest degree unjust
to say that the 1(52 days which elapsed between
the battle of Stone River and the
next advance of this army were spent in
idleness or trifling. During that period
was performed the enormous and highly
important labor which made the army of
the Cumberland what it is uiany respects
by far the best the country has ever known.
But for many weeks prior to our late movement
1 could not but feel that there was
not that live and earnest determination
to fling the great weight ot this army into
the Bcale and make its power felt in crushing
the shell of the rebellion. I have no
words to tell you with how restive and unsatisfied
a spirit I waited and plead for
striking a sturdy blow. I could not justly
say were in any proper condition to advance
till the early days of May. At that
time the strings began to draw sharply
upon the rebels, both on the Mississippi
and the East. They began to fear for the
safety of Vicksburg, and before the middle
of May they began quietly to draw
away forces to aid Pemberton. I plead
for an advance, but not till June began did
General Rosecrans begin seriously to meditate
an immediate movement. The army
had grown anxious, with the exception of
its leading generals, who seemed blind to
the advantages of the hour. In the first
week of the month a council of war was
called, and ou; of eighteen generals whose
opinion was asked seventeen were opposed
to an advance.
I was the only one who urged upon the
general the imperative necessity of striking
a blow at once, while Bragg was weaker
and we stronger than ever before. I
wrote a careful review of the opinions of
the generals, and exhibited the fact, gathered
from ample data, that we could throw
65,000 bayonets and sabres against Bragg's
41,000, allowing the most liberal estimates
of his force. This paper was drawn up on
the 8th of June. After its presentation
and a full canvassing of the situation an
advance was agreed upon ; but it was delayed
through days, which seemed like
months to me, till the 24th, when it was
begun and ended, with what results you
know. The wisdom of the movement is
not only vindicated, but the seventeen
dissenting generals were compelled to confess
that if the movement had been made
ten days earlier, while the weather was
propitious, the army of Bragg would, in all
human probability, no longer exist. I
shall never cease to regret the sad delay
which lost us so great an opportunity to
inflict a mortal blow upon the centre of
the rebellion. The work of expelling
Bragg from Middle Tennessee occupied
nine days, and ended July 3, leaving his
troops iu a most disheartened and demoralized
condition, while our army, with a
loss of less thai) one thousand men, was
fuller of potential fight than ever beloro.
On the 18th inst. the bridges were rebuilt
and the cars were in full communication
from the Cumberland to the
Tenpessee. I have sfnpe then urged, with
all the earnestness I possess, a rapid
advance while Bragg's army was shattered
and under cover, and before Johnson and
he could eflect a junction. Thus far the
General had been singularly disinclined
to grasp the situation with a strong hand
and make the advantage his own. I write
this with more sorrow than I can tell you,
for I love every bone in his body, and',
next to my desire to see the rebellion
blasted, is my anxiety to see him blessed.
But even the breadth of my love is not
sufficient to cover this almost fatal delay.
My personal relations with General Rosecrans
are all that I could desire. Officially
I share his councils -and responsibilities
even more than I desire, but I beg you to
know that this delay is against my judgment
and nfy every wish. Pleasant as
are my relations here I would rather command
a battalion that would follow and
follow and strike and strike than to hang
back while such golden moments are passing.
But the General and myself believe
that I can do more service in my present
place than in the command of a division,
though lam aware that it is not a position
that promises better in the way of promotion
or popular credit. But if this inaction
continues long I shall ask to be relieved
and sent somewhere where I can be part
of a working army.
But 1 do hope that you will soon hear
that this splendid army is at least trying
to do its part in the great work. If the
War Department has not always been
just, it has certainly been very indulgent
to this army. But I feel that the time has
now come when it should allow no plea
to keep this army back from the most
vigorous activity. T do hope that no
hopes of peace or submissive terms on thp
part of the rebels will lead the Government
to delay the draft and the vigorous
proseculon of the war. Timeo Danoas el
dona ferentes. Det the nation now display
the majesty of its power and the work will
be speedily ended. I hope you will pardon
this lengthy letter; but I wanted you to
know how the case stands, and I was unwilling
to have you think me satisfied with
the delavs here. With the kindest regards,
I am, as ever, your friend.
J. A. Garfield.
Hon. S. P.Ciiask.
garrfield's letter to rosecrans.
From the N. Y. Herald.
We have been handed the following
letter, written by Gen. Garfield in January,
1880, which contains views differing
so widely from those expressed in his famous
Chase letter of 1863 that the public
will read it with amazement, not
with regret. We are informed that
the original letter, in the handwriting of
General Garfield, is now in the possession
of parties of the highest respectability.
We have not seen the original, and therefore
are not prepared to pronounce it genuine.
But, genuine, or not, it is an important
addition to the spicy, controversy
now in nroirress. and as stich we lav it be
fore the public, republishing at the same
time the famous Chase letter, to enable
our readers to make comparisons:
House of Representatives,
Washington, D. C, January 19, 1880.
My Dear General : Yours of the 20th
December came just as I was leaving for
Ohio, or it would have been answered
I have tried for some time to get hold
of the article in the New York Sun to
which you refer, and have not been yet
been able to do so.
I have been told its substance by two
or three persons who have seen it. I can
only say, in absence of the article itself,
that any charge, whetherlt comes from.
Dana or any other liar, to the effect that I
was in any sense untrue to you or unfaithful
to our friendship has no particle of
truth in it.
On my wav from your army to Washington

and when he denounced you in vigorous
language I rebuked him, and earnestly defended
you against his assaults. I did the
same, as you remember, in the House of
Representatives very soon after I entered
