Lavergne (Tennessee, United States) (search for this): article 15
our cavalry in rear of Rosecrans. On Christmas day the First Alabama cavalry, occupying the advance posts near Lavergne, Tennessee, was driven in by an advance brigade of the enemy. So soon as the intent one of the enemy became known Gen. Wheeltattered traces scouring the country around us. We cave too with the sport of a Christmas holiday towards the village of Lavergne. The Yankee pickets had promised to give the 1st Alabama a Christmas ball. Blegg was giving them the made while we were dancing to Wheelers quickstep. Right upon Lavergne we rushed through the woods on all sides — scores of Yankees were seen flying about the streets, while teamsters forseek their wagons and endeavored to escape, but escape was impossible, Five hunded, the battle ground shown with dead and dying. The new year opened with Wheeler hurrying around the enemy's right Lavergne. Performing a circuit of twenty miles, again upon the enemy's rear, and waving his hat, dashed upon the wagon trains,
plished our purpose — had marched against a superior force of the enemy's cavalry and beaten him in upon field. But eager to win new , we rushed upon the infantry, and were received by a volley which emptied many a saddle Colonel Allen is severely wounded and forced to ave the field — His regiment, under Lieutenant-Colonel Hundrey, wearied out by a two days never stands its ground and pours an volley into the enemy.

uch paper. That night we bivouacked five miles from Nolensville. At early dawn of the 31st we passed around the right wing of the enemy to the music of artillery, and threw ourselves on the enemy's flank with an impetuous charge. The enemy was not surprised. He received with a battery on front and an en fire on each flank of the column. General Wheeler quickly wheeled from the flank and threw his brigade against the front of the enemy's right. The 1st Alabama leading the way, Captain Elmore's squadron gallantly cleared the woods of skirmishers, driving them back upon line of cavalry. Then Allen charged with his regiment, supported nobly by John T. Morgan, Wade, Hogan, and others.--The Federal cavalry was thrown in confusion upon the line of infantry.

This time the trains were defended by a stoong body of cavalry, has it fled before the charge, and left in our hands seventy-five wagons, two hundred prisoners, and a battery of artillery. The scenes of the first raid were reenacted. Moving back around the enemy's right we rested the next day within of the and unsuccessful cannonade against the enemy's left wing. On the following day we attempted a thud raid upon the rear, out fell back in consequence of the enemy's having guarded his trains with a brigade of infantry and cavalry. We drove the cavalry before us, but were unable to displace the infantry, which resisted us behind the shelter of their wagons. In this attack Major Prentice was wounded, and we regret to say Lieut J. A. Whiting is among the missing. Just at this point a courier reached Gen. Wheeler ordering his return. We hastened back slept two hours on the battle field, and then slowly and sadly wended our way in fear of the retreating army of Gen Bragg.

Wheeler, our little corporal, as he was called at Point, dashed about
g his approach by successive gallant skirmishes. After a resistance of three days our cavalry retired behind the infantry lines and took its position upon the right wing. Then came the brilliant operations in the enemy's rear, of which a correspondent of the Montgomery Advertiser gives the following history: At 1 P. M., the night of the 29th, Gen. Wheeler with a command of his old brigade, under Col. W. W. Allen, a regiment of Gen. Pegan's brigade under Col. Carter, and a section of Roberts's battery, started upon an expedition from the right wing, the purpose of which was not known nor even guessed. Passing around the left of the enemy he pushed forward by a circuitous by-read, and early on the morning of the 30th intersected the Jefferson pike, in the rear of the Federal army.--Far away to the Southeast we heard distant cannonading, which told us that the enemy was feeling the strength of our lines. Before us we saw moving along the pike a long train of Federal wagons hurr
