responding. In Johnston's memoirs, he speaks of receiving a report
from Cantey on the evening of the 9th, informing him that Cantey had
been fighting McPherson till dark. If he expected this might happen,
one would expect him to dispatch three divisions of infantry to the
crisis point before rather than after the fact.
