Annotation

[1]   ALS-F, ISLA. Grant telegraphed Colonel Theodore S. Bowers at 9:30 P.M. on April 1: ``I have just heard from Sheridan. He has carried everything before him. Captain [Peter T.] Hudson has just returned from him and reports that he has captured three brigades of infantry and a train of wagons and is now pushing up his success. I have ordered everything else to advance and prevent a concentration of the enemy against Sheridan. Several batteries were captured. The prisoners captured will amount to several thousand.''
