several light batteries, which had left Kingston a few days before, had made a large detour to the west in order to secure his left flank. This cavalry, under Colonel Scott, passing through Montgomery, Jamestown in Tennessee and Monticello, had crossed the old battle-field of Mill Springs, then Somerset, and had finally reached Lodvance, and the fatal cry, We are cut off! passed rapidly from mouth to mouth. It was Kirby Smith's cavalry coming to complete the disaster of the Federals. Colonel Scott, who was in command, had started in the morning, confidently relying upon the success of his comrades, and by making a large circuit across fields he had succending the valley of the Cumberland in the direction of Jamestown (Kentucky) and Somerset.
