All this was to be risked and given up for what ? To gain the enemy's rear and cut him off from his depot of supplies by the route over the .mountains, when the very movement abandoned to his unmolested use the better, and more practicable route, of half the length, on the south side of the river.

Such a movement was utterly impossible for want of transportation. Nearly half our army consisted of re-enforcements just before the battle without a wagon or an artillery horse, and nearly, if not quite, a third of the artillery horses on the field had been lost.

The nature of the country and the want of supplies in it, with the presence of Burnside's force on our right, rendered a movement on the enemy's rear with our inferior force extremely hazardous, if not impracticable.
