Camp Dick Robinson (Kentucky, United States) (search for this): article 6
driven the enemy from three to five miles along the whole line of the two armies. We formed our lines and remained on the ground daring the night. On the morning of the 9th, believing it would be hazardous with his weary troops to renew the conflict with a reinforced army of the enemy, Gen. Bragg or Polk ordered our army back to Harrodsburg. We captured all the artillery of the enemy except one battery, and unknown numbers and quantities of all descriptions of small arms. The loss of the enemy in killed and wounded was enormous. The field of battle was everywhere strown with the killed, wounded, and dying. In places they were piled up on each other. We retired in perfect order, each regiment and brigade in proper position, to camp Dick Robinson and its vicinity, where our army was concentrated.
