The whole command moved east, along the Memphis and Charleston railroad, threatening Corinth, to a point three miles west of Moscow, from thence south-east through Early Grove, Lamar, and Salem, to Ripley. From Early Grove the Tenth Missouri cavalry, under Captain F. K.

On the twenty-fourth of January La Grange's and Watkins' brigades of the First division, after a fatiguing march, arrivand frequently as much as thirty-five in one day. In the march from Selma, La Grange's brigade of McCook's division was given the advance. The recent rains had re roads quite muddy, and a small body of rebel cavalry in falling back before La Grange destroyed several bridges, so that our progress was necessarily slow. At seral Upton to move with his own division directly upon Columbus, and to order La Grange with his brigade to make a rapid movement upon West Point, destroying railroauction of the public stores. Shortly after leaving his camp near Montgomery, La Grange struck a force of rebels under Buford and Clanton, but drove them in confusio, which resulted in the capture of fourteen wagons and a number of prisoners, La Grange's advance reached the vicinity of West Point at ten A. M., April sixteenth.
