On securing the prisoners, and making the necessary preliminary arrangements, I despatched. Lieut. Commanding Phelps, with his division, up the Tennessee River, as I had previously directed, and as will be seen in the enclosed order to him, to remove the rails, and so far render the bridge of the railroad for transportation and communication between Bowing Green and Columbus useless, and afterwards to pursue the rebel gunboats and secure their capture, if possible.
