From the concealment of these hills, Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman with 4 Federal divisions, moved to cross the Tennessee River, Nov. 24, 1863, to open the attack against Missionary Ridge next day. The Confederates, losing contact, assumed he had gone to Knoxville to relieve Burnside of the pressure being put on him by Longstreet.
