, killed at Perryville. From a photograph. United for battle they would outnumber me very greatly. Louisville also, in the presence of this combined force, might be in danger. Besides, our provisions were nearly exhausted; some of the troops were without rations after arriving at West Point, twenty-five miles from Louisville. I therefore pushed forward to Louisville, the leading division arriving there on the 25th, and the last on the 29th. The cavalry was kept as an outpost at Elizabethtown to guard the flank of the passing columns and watch any possible movements of the enemy toward Bowling Green. The large empty wagon train which the exhaustion of our supplies at Nashville had rendered useless and insupportable, had been pushed through from Bowling Green by the way of Brownsville, Litchfield, and West Point, under a cavalry escort. In his official report General Bragg states that he offered battle at Munfordville. No doubt he was willing to fight on his own terms at

Commonwealth. He called upon the citizens to arm in their might and drive the invader from their soil. The leader of the hostile force, he said, who now approaches, is, I regret to say, a Kentuckian, making war on Kentucky and Kentuckians. He called them to rally around the flag our fathers loved, and bade them trust in God and do their duty. and where he remained for several months. At the same time, Sherman established a camp and general rendezous on Muldraugh's Hill, not far from Elizabethtown, and there laid the foundation of that notable organization afterward known as the Army of the Cumberland. On account of Anderson's feeble health, General Sherman was placed in chief command of the Department of the Cumberland (which included the States of Kentucky and Tennessee) early in October, when, with a forecast not then appreciated, he declared that an army of two hundred thousand men would be necessary to expel the Confederates from Kentucky and Tennessee, and carry the National

t (Strange) was made prisoner. Forrest fled eastward, recrossed the Tennessee at Clifton, and made his way to Bragg's army, below Murfreesboroa. Morgan, the guerrilla, was raiding upon Rosecrans's left and rear, while Forrest was on his right. He suddenly appeared in the heart of Kentucky, where he was well known and feared by all parties. He dashed up toward Louisville along the line of the railway, and after skirmishing at Nolensville and other places, he suddenly appeared before Elizabethtown, Dec. 27, 1862. then garrisoned by five hundred men of the Ninety-first Illinois, under Lieutenant-Colonel Smith. They were too few to combat successfully Morgan's three thousand. These surrounded the town, Dec. 28. and, without warning to the inhabitants, fired over a hundred shot and shell into it. Smith had no artillery, and was compelled to surrender, when Morgan's men, as usual;commenced destroying property, stealing horses, and plundering the prisoners. They even robbed the si

While Hood was investing Nashville, he sent a cavalry force, under General Lyon, into Kentucky, to operate on the Louisville railroad. General Thomas detached General McCook's cavalry division, and sent it in pursuit of Lyon. McCook attacked and routed a part of Lyon's forces at Hopkinsville, when the latter commenced a hasty retreat. Colonel Lagrange's brigade came up with the fugitive near Greenburg, and attacked and routed him, when Lyon succeeded, making a circuit by the way of Elizabethtown and Glasgow, in crossing the Cumberland River at Burkesville, from whence he moved by way of McMinnville and Winchester, Tennessee, to Larkinsville, Alabama. On the 10th of January he attacked a little garrison at Scottsboroa, and was repulsed, but succeeded in crossing the Tennessee River with a remnant of his command, only about 200 in number. He was still pursued, and at a place known as Red Hill, he was surprised by Colonel Palmer, and half his men were made prisoners, on the 14th

turing 2 guns at Florence, he did not intercept Hood. While Hood invested Nashville, he sent 800 cavalry, with 2 guns, under Brig.-Gen. Lyon, by our right across the Cumberland to break up the Louisville railroad in Thomas's rear. Lyon was manifestly too weak to effect any thing of importance. He took Hopkinsville, Ky., and was soon afterward attacked, near Greensburg, by Lagrange's brigade, and worsted; losing one of his guns and some prisoners; hurrying thence, sharply pursued, by Elizabethtown and Glasgow to Burkesville, where he recrossed the Cumberland, and raced southward by McMinnville and Winchester, Tenn., to Larkinsville, Alabama; thence moving east and attacking Jan. 10, 1865. a petty post at Scottsboroa, where he was repulsed and his command scattered: getting over the Tennessee with a remnant of 200 men, but losing his last gun.

Doc. 81. skirmish near Upton's Hill, Ky. October 12, 1861. A correspondent of the Louisville Journal gives an account of this affair: camp Nevin, nine miles below Elizabethtown, Oct. 15. This camp is named in honor of D. Nevin, Esq., formerly proprietor of the well-known marble shop on Jefferson Street, near Fifth, but now an extensive farmer, and owner of the land on which our tents are pitched. When the troops arrived Mr. Nevin welcomed them most cordially, and informed Gen. Rousseau, who was in command, that any thing and every thing he had was at the service of the army. Gen. McCook arrived on Sunday, and took command of this division on yesterday (Monday) morning. He is quite a young man, not more than thirty years of age, as I have been informed. In personal appearance he is the very reverse of Gen. Sherman, late head of this division and now head of the department. He is short of stature, fleshy, with a decidedly genial, good-humored face. He graduated at

, they stopped and threw out pickets, and about midnight the little scouting party, under Captain Miller, started to explore the country. They had proceeded some three and a half miles through Carter County, Tennessee, when they were met by a pretty heavy fire from rifles and shot-guns, which was promptly returned, and the skirmish was kept up with spirit for half a hour. The Lincolnites were some three hundred strong, and constituted the advance of a body of eight hundred stationed at Elizabethtown, the mountain stronghold of the traitors. We may state here that these men, as has been since ascertained from prisoners, expected a reinforcement of five hundred men from Wautauga County, North Carolina, a disaffected region adjoining Johnson County, Tennessee. In the fight the enemy were driven out of the woods, nine killed and five taken prisoners. The remainder retreated, and our scouts returned toward their camp. Captain Miller received a charge of buckshot through his coat, and
