12, 1863. General: As the sub-reports are now nearly all in, I have the honor to submit, for the information of the General-in-Chief, the subjoined report, with accompanying sub-reports, maps and statistical table of the battle of Stone River. To a proper understanding of this battle, it will be necessary to state the preliminary movements and preparations. Assuming command of the army at Louisville on the twenty-seventh day of October, it was found concentrated at Bowling Green and Glasgow, distant about one hundred and thirteen miles from Louisville, whence, after replenishing with ammunition, supplies and clothing, they moved on to Nashville, the advance corps reaching that place on the morning of the seventh of November, a distance of one hundred and eighty-three miles from Louisville. At this distance from my base of supplies, the first thing to be done was to provide for the subsistence of the troops, and open the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. The cars commenced
o'clock A. M., and already felt considerable anxiety in regard to his safety. At five o'clock P. M., I received information that Colonel Halisy was still in pursuit, who was moving in the direction of Muldrow's Hill, and from their rear-guard he had succeeded in capturing fifteen prisoners, whom he sent into camp. About the same time Colonel Boyle returned, bringing into camp some prisoners, with the assurance that Morgan's main body had passed St. Mary's Church. I knew we had a force at Glasgow, and had been informed that we had a force at or near Greensburgh, under command of Colonel Wolford, to whom I had on the thirtieth started a courier notifying him that I would pursue Morgan should he pass west of us, and suggesting the propriety of his moving his command to Pinchem or Muldrow's Hill. Unfortunately, however, this courier was captured and paroled before he reached Colonel Wolford. At six o'clock P. M., December thirty-first, my command, consisting of a squadron of the Sixt
not participate in the fight or surrender, and have not been with or seen those troops or had any opportunity of being with or seeing them for a month before that disaster; that said troops did not move with my main command at the time I moved forward from Bowling Green; that with my main command I was ordered, about the eighth of last month, to move to Scottsville, and subsequently from that place to this ; whereas the Thirty-ninth brigade was separated from my main command and ordered to Glasgow, thence to Tompkinsville, thence to Hartsville; that I was, at the time of the disaster, at Gallatin, where I had been ordered to be with my main command; and in addition, was prostrate with sickness whereof I had been confined to my bed for upward of two weeks. When I left Shelbyville I had with me four brigades. At Frankfort one of these brigades was ordered to Lawrenceburgh, thence I have understood to Harrodsburgh, thence to Danville, and thence I know not where, but presume where m
Doc. 76.-operations of Wolford's cavalry. Nashville, Tenn., Dec. 18, 1862. After the Bearwallow fight, in which about three hundred and fifty of the regiment routed a regiment of infantry and a battalion of cavalry, we marched to Glasgow to drive back any force coming from that direction. We returned and were sent forward upon the Glasgow and Bardstown road, and might have made some brilliant dashes upon the rear of Bragg's army, if we had not been under the direct orders of the ComGlasgow and Bardstown road, and might have made some brilliant dashes upon the rear of Bragg's army, if we had not been under the direct orders of the Commanding General, who had grander plans in view than the capture of the mere outposts and rear-guards of the enemy. The cavalry are often blamed by the ignorant for not doing what they are ordered not to attempt lest it should disarrange some higher plan; and indeed it has become common for a certain set of men to curse the cavalry for inefficiency as if they had the free control of their own actions, when the fact is, they are under the immediate control of the department commander, and have e
ted for the enemy to make some move which I could detect his design. On the twenty-fourth I received a despatch from General Reynolds, at Gallatin, stating that a large rebel force had crossed the Cumberland at Gainsville, and were making for Glasgow. I received despatches at the same time, from General Boyle and General Gilbert, confirming what I had formerly heard. On the evening of the twenty-fourth of December, companies C, L, M, and H, Second Michigan cavalry, under orders from Gallatin to Munfordville, captured a man belonging to Morgan's command, who reported a large force in Glasgow. Company C, Lieut. Darrow, met the advance of the enemy in the town and a skirmish ensued, in which our loss was one killed, one wounded, and sixteen prisoners. The loss of the enemy was one major, one captain, one lieutenant, and several privates killed and wounded, and seven prisoners. It being nearly dark, and the enemy clothed in our uniform, it was with difficulty that friend could be
