1 Thomas had ordered Schofield to fall back, to Nashville, before the battle of Franklin was fought. ‘General Wilson has telegraphed me very fully the movements of the enemy yesterday and this morning. He believes Forrest is aiming to strike this place, while the infantry will move against you, and attempt to get in on your flank. If you discover such to be his intention, you had better cross the Harpeth at Franklin, and then retire along the Franklin pike to this place.’—Thomas to Schofield, Nashville, Nov. 29, 11 P. M.
