U.S. Grant about importance of getting needed supplies from Louisville to Nashville

28 February 1864,

Grant writes to logistical mastermind General Robert Allen in Louisville regarding supplies requested by Allen.

It will be impossible probably to supply the number of Artillery & Cavalry horses called for within this Military Division but I would suggest that now all on hand be forwarded as rapidly as possible to this place and others be procured and forwarded as fast as they can be purchased. I will order this distribution from here.

U.S. Grant / Maj. Gen.
