The straw that saved Grant's back?

From the O.R.

Savannah, March 25, 1862 (via Fort Henry).

Major-General Halleck:  

Oxen can be got here, though we may be obliged to go far in the country for the number that will be required.  There are surplus mules enough here to partly supply a seige battery.  Sixteenth Wisconsin, Fifty-third  Indiana, and Michigan battery arrived. 

 U.S. Grant


E. B. Quiner has the 16th WI arriving at Pittsburg Landing on the 20th.
