Gen Halleck, “The enemy will probably attack our advance in the morning.”

May 28 1862, Received orders from Gen. Halleck, “If General McCook should be attacked to-morrow morning he must be re-enforced by General T. W. Sherman’s division, the remainder of McKean’s division being brought into line. W. T. Sherman and Hurlbut will probably be able to connect with McKean’s right to-morrow, which will leave Davies in reserve. The enemy will probably attack our advance in the morning. McClernand and Wallace have been ordered up.”
