      Eric,
      At the time that Sherman with his flotilla and divisision went up the river
      to close to Muscle Shoals and then back to Pittsburg Landing, Smith was not
      with him. Smith might have chosen Sherman to do the scouting and commanded
      him in that manner, but the overall commander of the expedition was Sherman.
      Smith was still back in Savannah when Sherman landed.
