In consequence of.in unfortunate disagree
went. between myself and the Comma nder-mChicf
of this Department, I have been relieved
>f my command, and am about to retire from
lie Army.?Without attempting to explain
lie ciicumstances of this disagreement, or prciiidicing
the public mind, by a premature appeal
to its judgment, ! must be permitted to
sxpress my unqualified conviction of the rectitude
of my conduct and that time and investigation
will amply vindicate my action on the
Held of the Chickamauga.
1 cannot, however, part even temporarily
with the gallant officers and soldiers of my old
Corps, without the deepest feeling of regret
and a heartfelt expression of my gratitude for
the courage, conduct and devotion they have
always manifested while under my command,
Belmont, Shiloh. Perryvillef Murfreesbor[>ugh
and Chickamauga, all attest on your part
the very highest soldierly qualities, and are
crowded with precious memories.
Contending with a numcrour, well appointed
and merciless enemy, for all that mar. holds
dear you have borne unexampled privations
with fortitude, fought with undaunted bravery,
and ever yielded a ready and cheerful obedience
to your officers.
Soldiers who struggle in such a cause and
with such hearts "can never be conquered.'*
Clouds and darkness may enshroud you for a
time, but the sunlight of the future is bright
and glowing, the blood of patriots is never shed
in vain, and our final victory is certain and as
snrcd.
m
Whoever commands you, my earnest exhortation
and request to you is, to fight on and
fight ever, with true hearts until your independence
is achieved.?Thousands of hearts
may fall crushed and bleeding under the weapons
of the foe, or the passions or mistakes of
friends, but the great cause must never be sacrificed,
or our Hag abandoned. Our cause is "
just and your duty to your country and God
is as clear as the sun in the heavens.
1 leave my command in the care of the
bravest of the brave, who has often led them
in the darkest hour of their trials; he and you
will have my hopes and prayers to the Iiuler
of the Universe for your happiness and success.
Your kindness, devotion and respect for me
exhibited during the years of our association
