1 p., 8vo., ruled paper, Head Quarters of the Army stationery. HALLECK. Autograph telegram signed ("H. W. Halleck") to unknown recipient, St. Louis, 6 May 1862. 1 p., 8vo., on Head Quarters Department of the Missouri stationery. "Four hundred rebels under Poindexter are seeking to make their way from vicinity of Renick across the river at Glasgow or Brunswick. Send messenger to Glasgow & Fayette with directions to our forces to intercept them & scour the country." HALLECK. ALS ("H. W. Halleck") to Gen. Cullum, St. Louis, 16 February 1862. 1 p., 8vo. Halleck asks that his message be sent in cipher (and below that instruction are erased figures, possibly the key?): "Twelve regiments coming down Ohio River. How can they best reach Genl. Grant, by the Cumberland or the Tennessee? Consult Com. Foote and send the orders you determine on to Paducah & Smithland. One regt of Infantry and two batteries leave here today. Have ten more regiments en route." Lincoln made Halleck head of the Missouri Department, replacing the troublesome Fremont, in November 1861. "He proved an able organizer and administrator," writes Boatner, "but an incompetent leader of field armies." Halleck was recalled to Washington in July 1862, serving as Lincoln's chief military advisor, where he exerted a strong (and to some) disruptive hand in shaping Union strategy. With Grant's appointment as supreme commander in 1864, Halleck's role receded. Together three items. (3) " /> HALLECK, Henry W. (1815-1872). ALS ("H. W. Halleck") to M. S.
