HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF TENNESSEE,
June 21, 1864.
General B. BRAGG,
The situation is not essentially changed since my last dispatch. The enemy are apparently strengthening and extending their right on a line running generally north and south. On our right Wheeler yesterday, with 1,100 cavalry from Allen’s, Anderson’s, and Williams’ brigades, Harrison’s regiment, and a battery of artillery, attacked Garrard’s division of cavalry; drove it from the field, killing 30 or 40, capturing as many more. The continued heavy rain has made the roads almost impassable. Military operations off them next to impossible.
J. E. JOHNSTON,
From General Joseph E. Johnston to General Braxton Bragg – June 21, 1864
