We have been told the most monstrous lies. The newspapers have said that Hood and Price were winning great victories. Hood was poised to cross the Ohio and take the war into Yankeedom. Taylor was poised to join Hood in this movement. All this is a pack of lies. Hood has been whipped and nearly destroyed at Nashville. Price is used up and might not ever fight again. Where Taylor is is anyone's guess.
|General John Bell Hood|
|Major General Sterling Price.|
|Major General Samuel Curtis, who defeated Price.|
|Major General George Thomas, who broke Hood.|
