Unfortunately, Crook divided and weakened his command by sending Averill, with his two thousand horsemen, to destroy the lead mines near Wytheville, while he advanced with his six thousand infantry toward Dublin Station, farther east. Averill's descent upon Wytheville and its vicinity was no more fruitful of benefit than was his raid to Salem the previous year, See page 118. for he was there met by Morgan and his men, May 10, 1864. sent from Saltville by General W.

Saltville, where the works were situated, was thus abandoned to its fate, after being guarded with the greatest care.
