April 5, 1865: Sherman still wondering what’s happening

Ulyssess S. Grant

Apparently the dispatches from Grant haven’t gotten to Sherman’s army yet. Howard wonders what’s going on at Richmond.

Official Records:


HEADUARTERS ARMY OF THE TENNESSEE,
New Berne, April 5, 1865.
COMMANDING OFFICER, Morehead City:

Please inform me what news there is from General Grant in the papers of April 1 and later, or from any other source. A rumor of a severe battle has reached us, but nothing definite.

O. O. HOWARD,
Major-General.
