NP: June 17, 1864 New York Herald-Tribune: Gen Grant James



in June 1864

Editor’s Note: This article was transcribed by Ken Perdue.

It is evident that Gen. Grant is pushing rapidly forward south of the James. One dispatch says that his whole army had passed through the Bermuda Hundred line Wednesday morning. There were sounds of battle toward Petersburg, and the immediate fall of that place may be expected. It cannot be defended by any considerable force. Then a march to Fort Darling will be at once in order.1
