March II, 1832 j
To the Speaker of the H"tut of Rep’-eeenta'ires :
I trao-mit herewith copies of ruch t(filial reports ta
have been received at the War Depirtmdot of the do- i
fence and f JI cf Pert Danel*ou.
They >vili be fouod incomplete a: d unsatisfactory— f
lustra ions bar.* b > n given to furniab further in'orma- [
lio'i upija tbe -evrrai po-nte not n;a o iuteliigi* le by the j
repor-s. It is net stated that reinforcements were at
«i y time ark d far; n^r in it demonstrated to hav bon I
impossible to have rav- d tbe aimy by evacuating the I
position; nor is it knoan by what means it was found I
practicable 'o withdraw a part of the garrison, leaving I
the remainder to surreud -r; nor upon what authority or j
prit cipal cf action the senior G uerals abandoned res- j
not^uomiy by transferring tbe eo<cmand to a junior of
1- r.
In a former communication to Congress, I presented
the propiie y of a su-p-i sian of j idg-oent in relation to
the disaster at Fort Doneison, tttitii < ftijial reports oauld
be rrccived. I regret that the information n jw furnish
• d is so defective. Ii the meantime, hopeful that satis
Mctcry explanation may be made, I have directed, upon
the exhibition of the esse as presented by the two se
nior Generals, that tin y should be relieved from cora
msod, to await fur'hcr orders, when-.v. r a reliable judg

the duty of making thu at'rok from near the cent e t(

than I eiptcUd, and consequently the enemy was found
to position wbo.t our troops adranetd The attack, how

■Wtioned in F rt 0 melaon, to cc.upy the treCchee va
cated by Brig -Geu. Bucknoi’s forets, which, together
with the men whom be detached to assla. iu thia pur
pose, I thought sufficient t« hold them.
id/ intention was to hold, with Brig Geo. Buckner's
command, the W/nn’s Fir y roal, aud thus to prevent
the enemy, during the eight, from occupying the posi
tion ouou- 1 .-ft, which bs occupied in the morning. I
gave hue orders upon the field to that tff.vt. L a ring
him in position, I s’a-ted for the right o' our comma:.d
to see that all was secure tbero, my intention being, if
thing* could be held iu the coudi'iou they then were, to
move tho whole at my, if pos iole, to tho open c uuty

'-secured before I was aware of is. As the enemy was
presaing upon the trenches, I deemed that the execution 1
of P is last order was all that was left to be done. The
enemy, iu faot, 6U weeded in occupying an angle of the |
trench s on the extremo right of Brig idicr-Gfneral
Buckner’’ command; and a«. the fresh forces of the ene
my had begun alsundy to move towards cur left to
occupy th* position they held in the morning, aud as we
hid no force edequate to oppose their progrees, we hid
to submit to ihc mortification of seeing the ground whit h
we had won by suolt a severe coil! ct iu tho morning

hope of succit-ful result was obviously vain, and such I
cede-too l to b- the unanimous opinion of all the offi

beat to be done 1 thought, and so announced, that a
d .-per,ue onset upon P c right of the enemy's force* on
the ground where we had at acked them in the morning,
might result iu the extrication of a cot sidenbte propor
tion of it command Irani the position we were iu, at d
this opinion I urdeisootj to be cootorrcd in by all w) o
were prrs ct. But it w.s likewise agreed, with the s ne
qjiuijtqiiy, that L would r tu!. in the slaughter of nearly
all who did not succeed in iff cling their escape. Ttie
quest o i then ara o, whether, in point of humanity, and
a sound military po'icy, a course should ba adopted from
whloh the probii'iiiti's were that too larger portion of
the command would ba cut to plrc e in an uravailirg
light ugiinat overwhelm tig numbers. 1 uud r stood
he general sentiment to t>c adverse to the propositi’u.
I felt that iu this contingency, whilst it might be quit*
tinned wh.-lher I abend, a* commander of the at my,
I ad it to cer a n deiltuc ion in an unavailing fight, jet
i had a right iudividuai'y to determine that 1 wou;d net
