Forrest moved with his brigade from Columbia, Tennessee, toward the Tennessee river, at Clifton, crossing on the 15th, under instructions from Bragg, who was at Murfreesboroa, to operate against Grant's communications in west Tennessee. On the 16th Forrest captured Lexington, securing a number of prisoners, including Colonel Robert G. Ingubsequently joined by Colonel J. W. Fuller's brigade, and after a desperate engagement Forrest retired toward the Tennessee. Forrest's estimate of his force in this battle is 1800 men. On January 2d, the whole command recrossed the Tennessee at Clifton.-editors. and on the 23d of December he ordered Sherman to delay his expedition.

h Benjamin's savage instructions, they were left hanging in public places, to receive the indignities of a brutal mob. Such was the case with the bodies of two victims (Hensie and Fry), who were hanged together upon the limb of an oak tree. near the railway-station, at Greenville, Tennessee, by the hands of Colonel Leadbetter, already mentioned. See page 174, volume I. This man, who was guilty of enormous crimes, it is said, during the war, and fled to Upper Canada at its close, died at Clifton, in that province, of apoplexy, on the 25th of September, 1866. He ordered their bodies to hang there four days and nights; and when the trains upon the road passed by, they were detained long enough to allow the passengers to go up and offer insults to the lifeless remains. This was done, especially by Confederate soldiers on their way to Virginia, in view of many of the loyal inhabitants of Greenville. In the midst of these fiery trials, the intrepid Brownlow remained firm, and exerci

before the battle of Murfreesboro he had been raiding through that region, much of the time with impunity, destroying railway tracks and bridges, attacking small National forces, and threatening and capturing posts. He crossed the Tennessee at Clifton, in the upper part of Wayne County, on the 13th of December, and, moving rapidly toward Jackson, seriously menaced that post. Sweeping northward, destroying tracks and bridges, he captured Humbolt, Trenton, and Union City, and menaced Columbus, twenty, of whom twenty-three were killed, one hundred and thirty-nine wounded, and fifty-eight missing. Forrest himself came very near being captured. His Adjutant (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 a

ovement), it was abandoned, and Hood went westward to Tuscumbia. That important movement was the passage of the Tennessee River by Hood's army, a part of which crossed it at the mouth of Cyprus Creek, Oct. 31, 1864. not far from Florence, in the face of strong opposition from Croxton's brigade, which was pressed back to the east bank of Shoal Creek. It was now evident that Hood intended to advance into Middle Tennessee. General Hatch was ordered to move, with his cavalry division, from Clifton, to the support of Croxton; and, as we have seen, the Twenty-third Corps, under General Schofield, was directed to report to General Thomas, to whom was given full control of all the troops in the Military Division of the Mississippi, excepting those which were to accompany Sherman. See page 400. General Thomas J. Wood's division of the Fourth Corps reached Athens on the 31st, closely followed by the other divisions, when Stanley, the commander of the corps, concentrated his whole force

After the conclusion of the Red River expedition the fleet rg of over-security, sent an insufficient force of gun-boats, when trouble would ensue and the undertaking be a failure. One of these cases was an expedition from Clifton to Eastport under command of Colonel Hoge, consisting of the 113th and 120th Illinois infantry, 660 strong; 61st U. S. colored infantry, 600 strong, and Battery G, 2d Missouri light artillery (four rifled 12-pounders). These troops embarked on the 9th of October, at Clifton, on the transports City of Pekin, Aurora and Kenton, and they set out for Eastport under convoy of the Key West, Acting-Volunteer-Lieutenant E.

this place with his army completely disorganized, except the rear-guard, composed of about five thousand (5,000) men. He destroyed a considerable quantity of ammunition at this place, besides abandoning an ammunition-train of fifteen (15 or twenty (20) wagons about a mile beyond. Your official co-operation on the Tennessee River has contributed largely to the demoralization of Hood's army. Major-General A. J. Smith, commanding detachment of the Army of the Tennessee, will probably reach Clifton by Sunday next, January 1, 1865, where transports are expected to meet him to take his command to Eastport. Please afford him every assistance in your power in effecting a secure lodgment at Eastport; and as I consider the Cumberland now entirely safe, I will be obliged to you if you will have a strong force kept in the Tennessee to keep open navigation on that river. In concluding this telegram, it gives me great pleasure to tender to you, your officers and men, my hearty thanks for yo
is, Lee's Corps already in advance of Florence, and Stewart's and Cheatham's Corps under orders to cross the river. My purpose was to call again your attention as I did yesterday: 1st. To the necessity of guarding well your left flank, and rear, in advancing towards Lawrenceburg and Pulaski, against a sudden offensive movement of the enemy from Huntsville or Athens, across the Elk river. 2d. To securing against the passage of the enemy's gunboats another point (about Savannah or Clifton) besides Florence for the Army to recross the Tennessee, in the event of disaster. 3d. To giving still greater protection to Corinth, and the M. and O. R. R. to that point. I was aware that these points had already been discussed between us, but my anxiety for the safety of the troops under your command, made it incumbent on me to call again your attention to these important matters. I wish also to inform you that the third point mentioned may require greater time than was at firs
