Doc. 25.-Skirmis on Green River Ky., February 1, 1862. The following is a private letter from Capt. Joe Presdee, of the Second cavalry, Forty-first regiment Indiana volunteers, fighting on Green River, near Bowling Green, Ky. camp Wickliffe, Banks of Green River, Ky., Tuesday, February 4, 1862. my dear J----: Hurrah for Company H, of the Second cavalry, Forty-first regiment Indiana volunteers, commanded by the gallant Colonel Bridgland! I, together with my boys, on last Saturday, opened the ball with secesh for the Second Indiana cavalry, and made the rebels pay for the music, as we killed three and wounded two! with none hurt on our side — and now for the story. On Friday morning I was ordered out, with my company, for picket duty, with three days rations. I tell you the boys, when they heard the order, were tickled to death, and so was I, and off we started, and before night I had eight posts picked out, and my men placed at them, beside what I had at my headquarters
Doc. 45.-occupation of Bowling Green, Ky. Gen. Buell's despatch. Louisville, February 15, 1862. To Major General-McClellan: Mitchell's division, by a forced march, reached the river at Bowling Green to-day, making a bridge to cross. The enemy burned the bridge at one o'clock in the morning, and were evacuating the place when he arrived. D. C. Buell, Brigadier-General Commanding. Gen. Buell's General order. The following is a general order, issued by Gen. Buell to the troops of General Mitchell's division, after their advance upon Bowling Green: General order no. 70. headquarters Third division, Camp John Q. Adams, Bowling Green, February 19, 1862. soldiers of the Third division: You have executed a march of forty miles in twenty-eight hours and a half. The fallen timber and other obstructions, opposed by the enemy to your movements, have been swept from your path. The fire of your artillery, and the bursting of your shells, announced your arrival. S
7, 1862. General A. S. Johnston: sir: Your order of the twelfth of this month, transmitted to me by telegraph from Bowling Green to Cumberland City, reached me the same evening. It directed me to repair at once, with what force I could command, ation, with reference to his regiment. Previous to the month of February, the Mississippians had been stationed at Bowling Green. Affairs at Forts Henry and Donelson, however, being in a precarious condition, and the certainty of a Federal advanat execution in several charges. The opinion prevalent in the army of the West is, that if the troops retired from Bowling Green could have concentrated at Donelson, or a reenforcement of ten thousand fresh men been added to the exhausted army at the army would fall back and endeavor to retrieve their losses from another point. On Sunday, the army evacuating Bowling Green passed through Nashville, en route for Murfreesboro, or some other locality in that vicinity — a heterogeneous mixtur
es of the State which could be made available, with my full cooperation in any and all measures of defence for our State and capital. Gen. Johnston informed me that, under the circumstances which surrounded him, with the small force then under his command, he regarded it as his duty to the army he commanded and the government he represented, to fall back with his army south of Nashville, making no defence of the city, and that he would do so immediately upon the arrival of the army from Bowling Green. The necessity for this retrograde movement, I am certain, was deeply regretted by Gen. Johnston. None could have deplored it more seriously than myself. You have for months past witnessed the constant and earnest efforts which I have made to raise troops, collect arms, and prepare them for the defence of our long line of frontier, but it is evident that the country has not been sufficiently aroused to a full sense of the dangers with which it was menaced. While it is true that Ten

Harris instantly convened his Legislature, but, finding no parliamentary remedy against the approach of Yankees with rifles and armored gunboats, they adjourned without calling for the nays, and took a special train for Memphis. Before night, Johnston, with his retreating hordes from Bowling Green, entered the city and struck straight south for Dixie. This added to the general panic, and when a rumor became current that the dreaded gunboats had taken Clarksville and were advancing up the river, the excitement grew to be tremendous. To save the trouble of writing, I take the remainder of the account from an extra of the Republican Banner, issued this morning: Such hurrying to and fro was never seen. Before nightfall hundreds of citizens with their families were making th<

nd would obtain possession of this great channel of communication, only by a costly expenditure of blood. We all perfectly understood, too, that the rebels had accumulated upon this road neatly all the rolling stock of all the railroads from Bowling Green southward, besides what legitimately belonged to the road itself; and that they could therefore, with the utmost facility, concentrate at any threatened point, whatever forces they had at command. We did not know but that the rebel army of td do it much more effectually than their own Southern leaders ever could. Gen. Mitchel's thanks to his soldiers. headquarters Third division, camp Taylor, Huntsville, April 16, 1862. General order No. 93. soldiers: Your march upon Bowling Green won the thanks and confidence of our Commanding General. With engines and cars captured from the enemy, our advance-guard precipitated itself upon Nashville. It was now made your duty to seize and destroy the Memphis and Charleston Railway,
