Chattanooga, Tennessee

I wired a report to Washington:

Chattanooga, Tennessee, March 31, 1864 9 p. m.
Adjutant-General U. S. Army:

Am just down from Knoxville. Longstreet is doubtless moving out of East Tennessee for Virginia. General Schofield will occupy Bull’s Gap with infantry and fill up the valley with cavalry.

Forrest was badly worsted at Paducah, and is still between the Mississippi and Tennessee. I hope to catch him and break him up. Veatch is near Purdy with infantry, and Grierson’s cavalry is operating from Memphis.

I will go to Nashville tomorrow, where I can better direct the
 movement. All well here.

W. T. SHERMAN, Major-General
