Somerset, Ky., June 10, 1863.
One of the most exciting and trying reconnoissances that I have ever seen I returned from this morning.
Noticing a stir at headquarters about noon on Monday, I was soon convinced that something was on foot, and, learning that a considerable force was to take a tramp in some direction, I determined on accompanying it. About four o'clock, detachments of the Second Ohio cavalry, consisting of companies B, (Lieutenant Deming,) E, (Captain Stewart,) F, (Sergeant McBride,) H, (Lieutenant Case,) K, (Lieutenant Patrick,) L, (Captain Easton,) and M, (Captain Ulrey,) commanded by Majors Purington and Seward; also, of the Seventh Ohio cavalry, Colonel Garrard, divided into three divisions — the first, commanded by Captain Lindsey; second, Lieutenant Shaw; third, Captain Brownfield--all commanded by Colonel A. V. Kautz, of the Second Ohio, left here about half-past 3 o'clock, and proceeded direct to Waitsboro, a distance of seven miles,
Major-General Cheatham, of Lieutenant-General Polk's corps, and the division of Major-General W. H. T. Walker.
The left was composed of the divisions of Major-General Stewart, Brigadier-Generals Preston and Bushrod Johnson, of Major-General Buckner's corps; Major-General Hindman, of Lieutenant-General Polk's corps, and Benning'sham, of Polk's corps — which were posted from right to left in the order named.
Major-General Walker was here in reserve.
The left wing was composed of Major-General Stewart's division on the right, with Hood's on the left.
On Hood's left was Hindman's division of Lieutenant-General Polk's corps, with Preston's division of Bucsition from which he could enfilade the reenforcing column as it advanced.
The battery opened just as it was about wheeling into position, and, at the same time, Stewart's division, posted on the extreme right, was thrown forward on its flank.
These movements, made contemporaneously with the movements of Polk's wing, as mention
