main works as recerve for the center
brigades of the Twenty-third corps lione,
which was in rear of Conrad and Lane
and the key to the field. Hood's at
tack overwhelmed Conrad and Lane,
who fell back to the works, and there a
second break occurred, making a breach
through which the enemy poured. Op
dycke charged forward and repaired the
break. After that the battle was in the
hands of Schofield's subordinates. Op
dyoke criticises Schofield for failure to
get into the fight himself, for remaining
twice as far from the key to his own
position as was the enemy when formed
for attack and for taking Stanley with
one division north of the Harpeth far
from the point of danger.
Schofield explains this by saying that
he went personally with Stanley's di
vision north of the Harpeth to guard
against any attempt of Hood to get in
his rear, as he had done at Spring Hill
the day before
Hood suffered a bloody repulse at
Franklin, losing 6,000 men and 13 gen
erals, but in the end Schofield, still
north of the Harpeth, ordered his troops
to retire from the front of Hood. Then,
Opdycke thinks, was the chance to delay
Hood, and he even says that Hood could
have been driven back to the Duck riv
er. Schofield says he didn't stay at
Franklin because his ammunition was
short, he didn't know the extent of
Hood's loss, and having formed junc
tion with Thomas' rc-cnforcements
"why run further risk?" It was Thorn
as' campaign for Thomas' united army
Schofield reached Nashville Dec. 1
and other re-enforcements the same day.

GENERAL J. M SCHOFIELD, U. S. A.
Hood appeared the 2d, and so the net
result of Schofield's campaign of delay
was one day's grace. To the clearing G
up of the controversies natural under the
circumstances Schofield offers little;
rather he adds to the number in expressly o
stating that Thomiasr left him to fight fr
the battles of his (Thomas') army and ki
failed to provide means for crossing the ki
river at Franklin when hard pushed.
Yet the crossing was made upon bridg- th
ing sent there by Thomas early Nov. 30.
He says that Opdycke was inordinately
praised for his action at Franklin, difl
whereas he simply did his plain soldierly
duty, duty for which his superiors had
placed him where the crisis found him.
Officers and soldiers of the Fourth t
and Twenty-third corps have contended non
for years over the break in the Twenty- tha
third corps' line at the pike where Con- r
rad's and Lane's retreating brigades en- her
tered On the one hand, it is said that ano
Conrad's and Lane's men caused the
men in the works to break to the rear,
and on the other that the retteating- lov
men. ~turned in the works and fought ia g
gallantly, the Twenty-third corps men fro
falling into a panic and deserting their
Proper posts. lig
A bitter controversy, purely perasonal, go
has been going on between Generals screi
Stanley and J. D.. Oou as to the actual trie(
cOignaland cm the teld of the Fourth
* ~lps troops engaged. Two divisions of
t ,'e. cass were to thea bWattl. and
neL no was in the ightinug column of one in
or" the heat of the crisis. General Cox had
1o, been assigned to the conluand of the
.ane Twenty-third corps, and so acted during
at- the battle.
On, On the Confederate side General
re a Cheathani was charged with disobedi
ach ence of orders in not closing the road at
OP- Spring Hill behind Schofield, but was
the not tried. General Cleburne was verbal
the ly rebuked for want of ardor on the
P- same occasion, but nobly redeemed him
to self at Franklin, where he was killed.
