On the 27th of April I put all the troops in motion toward Chattanooga, and on the next day went there in person.

The one runs from Nicholasville, through Camp Dick Robinson, Lancaster, Crab Orchard, Mount Vernon, and Camp Wild Cat, to London, four miles this side of which place it is joined by the other route, leading from Lexington through Richmond. The first is a good turnpike road as far as Crab Orchard, eighteen miles from this camp. The other is an equally good road till it reaches the Big Hill, nineteen miles south of Richmond, when it becomes as hard a road to travel as ever Jordan was. On Monday evening, the 14th, t
