The plan to take' Charleston in vol v
ed the passage of our ships to Cooper

Gilman's troops from .Bull's Bay to
take the forts on Sullivau's Island,
and invade Charleston on the Cooper
River side. Thus encountered, Cnar

that just prior t the sh,r,a of - lat

dreadful smashing, fir all the loyal
men of the country (and the judgment
of such men is infnil.ibic) said that
Grant had only to strike one of his
giant bloivs to demolish the whole
Confederate concern, and annihilate
it, bag and baggage; lock, stock and
