Doc. 180.-fight near Kinderhook, Tenn.

General Negley's report.

headquarters U. S. Forces, Columbia, Tenn., August 11, 1862--3 P. M.
my movement against the guerrillas who have committed the late outrage has been completely successful. Major McGowan, in command of the Third Kentucky cavalry and First Tennessee cavalry, numbering one hundred and eight men, engaged one hundred and seventy-five of the enemy, near Kinderhook, at five A. M., continuing the contest fiercely for four hours. Seven were found killed, and a large number were wounded. Twenty-seven prisoners were captured, among which are a number of officers. Our loss was three killed. The woody and broken character of the country, and the combatants being scattered, prevents an actual estimate of the enemy's loss.

I have received news from Major S. H. Kennedy, of my staff, commanding another portion of the expedition. He is driving the enemy in every direction.

Jas. S. Negley, Brigadier-General Commanding.
