Doc. 141. the battle at Piketon, Mo. Report of Chaplain Bayless. Ivy Mountain, Big Sandy, Floyd County, November 9, 1861. on the morning of the 8th we left Prestonburg, and took up the line of march for Piketon, and were in motion as early as five o'clock, moving forward rapidly. Col. Marshall's battalion, composed of Companies A, B, C and D, of his own regiment, and Capt. Berryhill's company of the Second Ohio Volunteers, constituted his command, and were placed in advance of the Second, Twenty-first and Fifty-ninth regiments of Ohio Volunteers. Upon our boys devolved the duty of climbing the mountains as scouts; to do which, and keep at the same time in advance of the main column, required of them the most exhausting toil. General Nelson, in order to form a junction with a force which he had moved forward in advance of us about twenty-four hours, was compelled to make a forced march. As our rout was somewhat circuitous, distance could only be overcome by speed.
