A Battle between Grant and Bragg Expected To-day.


November and December 1863

From The Missouri Democrat, Wednesday, November 25, 1863.




Cannonading Still Heard at Knoxville.

A Battle between Grant and Bragg Expected To-day.

Rebels Said to be Falling Back – A Reconnaissance – We Hold all the High Ground this Side of Missionary Ridge, Etc., Etc.

CINCINNATI, Nov. 24. – There is nothing additional from Burnside. Cannonading is still heard. The battle is anticipated between Grant and Bragg to-day.

A special to the Commercial, from Chattanooga, 23d, says deserters last night reported the rebels falling back to Chickamauga Station. Their artillery has been withdrawn from our front, and their army, apparently, is in retreat. Reconnaissance this afternoon revealed the enemy apparently in force between us and Missionary Ridge.

General Wood charging up to Orchard Ridge carried the rifle pits under a severe musketry and artillery fire, taking two hundred prisoners. We now hold all the high ground the side of Missionary Ridge. Our troops are in line of battle, and will lie on their arms tonight.

There were probably be hard fighting to-morrow unless the enemy withdraws tonight.
