Sherman’s Movement.


January and February 1864

From The Missouri Democrat, Monday, February 29, 1864.


Sherman defies all calculation. Instead of pushing directly down for Mobile as was certainly predicted of him, his course at last accounts was eastward, and he turns up at Selma. We shall probably hear of him next at Montgomery, the capital of Alabama. His army of thirty thousand men are marching without tents or heavy baggage of any kind, and consequently make fast time. Grant, meanwhile, is co-operating by a movement on Dalton. The rebel army, between the two, is undoubtedly in a predicament, and to extricate itself will have occasion to draw quite largely upon that superior military sagacity with which its chief, Gen. Jo. Johnston, has been so freely credited.
