The leader of the hostile force, he said, who now approaches, is, I regret to say, a Kentuckian, making war on Kentucky and Kentuckians.

One of the blockhouses on the Nashville and Chattanooga railroad in 1864 brought up, and after the raiders fired a number of shells and solid shot, which knocked great holes in the houses, the garrison surrendered. On the 28th, the two great trestles on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad at Muldraugh's Hill were destroyed. They were each from sixty to seventy-five feet high, and nine hundred feet long, constructed entirely of wood. They were guarded by two strong stockade forts, garrisoned by an Indiana regiment of infantry.
