The forward movement had not been accomplished without some sharp fighting. The advance of Crittenden had a spirited action at La Vergne, and again at the Stewart's Creek bridge. McCook fought at Nolensville, and the ca's River. From a photograph taken in 1884. his front, but, meeting with the same reception, was compelled to retire. A second attack resulted like the first.

during which they had uniformly held their position. I spoke of the proposition as resembling the suggestion of General Wool to General Taylor at Buena Vista, when Taylor responded: My wounded are behind me, and I will never pass them alive. Rosecrans called McCook to accompany him on a ride, Brigadier-General John H. Morgan, C. S. A. From a photograph. directing us to remain until their return. McCook has since told me that the purpose of this ride was to find a position beyond Overall's Creek to which the army might retire. Upon approaching the creek Rosecrans, perceiving mounted men moving up and down with torches, said to McCook: They have got entirely in our rear and are forming a line of battle by torchlight. They returned then to where we were, and Rosecrans told us to go to our commands and prepare to fight or die. The explanation of the torches is that the men were making fires, and the torches were firing-brands being carried from one point to another by cavalrymen

urned from a pursuit of Hardee as far as Riggs's Cross Roads, on his way to Murfreesboroa. On the following morning Dec. 29. McCook pushed on from Triune to Wilkinson's Cross Roads, six miles from Murfreesboroa, with an advanced brigade at Overall's Creek, while Crittenden, moving on the Murfreesboroa pike, with Palmer in advance, followed by Negley, of Thomas's corps, skirmished to the West Fork of Stone's River, to within a short distance of Murfreesboroa, when Palmer, deceived, erroneouslysaid, Gentlemen, we conquer or die right here. For his admiring officers his will was law. It was resolved to continue the fight, During the preceding evening Rosecrans had made a personal examination of the ground in the rear, as far as Overall's Creek, and had resolved to await the attack of his foe, while his provision train and a supply of ammunition should be brought up.

ith his right resting on the Nolensville pike, and his left behind Richland Creek, retiring on the Hillsboroa pike, with cavalry on both flanks, extending to the river. On the same day, there was a smart contest at the railway crossing of Overall's Creek, five miles north of Murfreesboroa, where there was a block-house well-manned and armed. General Thomas was unwilling to relax his hold upon Chattanooga, and endeavored to keep open the railway communication between himself and Granger, at Stevenson. For that purpose, he placed General Rousseau, with eight thousand troops, in Fort Rosecrans, See note, page 549, volume II. at Murfreesboroa. When the block-house at Overall's Creek was attacked Dec. 4, 1864. by Bate's division of Cheatham's corps, General Milroy was sent out from Fort Rosecrans with a small force to its assistance. The little garrison held it firmly until Milroy came, when the assailants were quickly driven away. During the next three days, Bate was re-en
