Hkadq’Bß Mil, Div. of thf Mississippi, In the Field, Savannah, Ga., Jan. 8, 1865. Spbcial Fikld Orders \ No. 6. f The General Commanding announces to the troops composing the Military Division of the Mississippi that he has received from the Presi dent of the United States and from Lieutenant General Grant, letters conveying their high sense and appreciation of he campaign just closed, re sulting in the capture of Savannah and the de feat of Hood’s army in Tennessee. In order that all may understand the import ance of events, it is proper to revert to the situa tion of affairs in September last. We held At lanta, a city of little value to us, but so impor tant to the enemy that Mr. Davis, the head of the rebellious faction in the South, visited the army near Palmetto, and commanded it to ro gain'it, as well as to ruin'and destroy us by a series of measures which he thought would be effectual. That army by a rapid march gained our railroad at Big Shanty, and afterwards about Dalton. We pursued it, but it moved so rapidly that we could not overtake it, and General Hood led his army successfully far over towards Mis sissippi, in hopes to decoy us out of Georgia.— But we were not thus to be led sway by him, and preferred to lead and control events our selves. Generals Thomas and Schofield, com manding Departments in our rear, returned to their posts and prepared to decoy General Hood into their meshes, whilst we came on to com plete the original journey. We quietly and de liberately destroyed Atlanta and all the railroads which the enemy had used to carry on war against ns. occupied his State Capital, and then captured his commercial capital, which had been so strongly fortified from the sea as to dely ap proach from that quarter, Almost at the moment of our victorious entry into Savannah, came the welcome and expected news that our comrades in Tennessee had also fulfilled nobly and well their part, had decoyed General Hood to Nashville, and then turned on him. defeating his army thoroughly, capturing nearly all his artillery, great numbers of prison ers, and were still pursuing the fragments down into Alabama. So complete a success in milita ry operations, extending over half a continent,is an achievement that entitles it to a place in the military history of the world. The armies serv ing in Georgia and Tennessee, as well as the lo cal garrisons of Decatur, Bridgeport. Chattanoo ga, and Murfreesboro, are alike entitled to the common henors, and each regiment may in scribe on its colors at pleasure the words “Sa vannah” or ‘ Nashville.” The General-in Chief embraces in the same general success the operations of the cavalry column under Generals Stoneman and Burbridge, find Gillem, that penetrates into South-west Vir ginia and paralized the efforts of the enemy to disturb the peace and safety of East Tennessee. Instead of being put on the defensive, we have at all points assumed the bold offensive, and completely thwarted the designs of the enemies of our country. By order of Major General W. T. SHERMAN. L.
