were hastily forwarded for its defeiwe from the Northwestern States; tluse troops were assenililed at
I^'xinjrton and or^ani/ed into a divisi(»n. In the nieantime the relicl Griieral Kirliy Smith liiid invaded

Ciimlicrland (iai> liy (iciicral Moifran, who retreated with liis division via ("iimlierland FonI, Flat Liek,
Maiiihester, Proctor, Ilazle (ireen, AVe.-t fJlierty, and Grayson, to (irceiiiip.~liiir';h, where liis tnmps
iTossed the river into Uhio. From 15i<; Creek (lap General Ivirbv Smith's army moved toward Rich-
mond, Kentucky, to wliich point General Nelson had sent forward a division of infantry under CJciieral
Mansoii to dispute his advance. On the tiOtli of Aii};;iist, the enemy arrived in the vicinity of Uich-
inond. General ^laiisoii moved forward liis first l)ris;ade ami took pos.session of a hijrii ridj^e aiwint two
miles from town, where he was attacked by the enemy, who after ahont an hour of severe skinnishiiifj;
was driven hack. Genend Manson then a<lvani'ed to lloi;ersville and cneam[ied for the night. (>n the
mornifif; of the 3(itli, General Waiison advanced and took possession of some hijrh ;:ronnd soutli of the
town, driving hack the enemy's advance; he was soon assailed hy a largely superior force of the enemy,
and, after holding his j>osition some three hours, his. trooi>s, which wciv all raw, fell liack in eoiisider-
ahle eonfusion. The cavalry, with one jiieee of :u'tillery, was now thrmvn forward to cover the infantry,
while getting into jxisition on the high ground occupied during the skirmish on the :i9tli; the enemy
advanced in line of battle, and after an hour of bard tightiiig. General Manstm's troojis were driven
from the field in confusion. General Nelson Inning arriveil at Kiclimon<l, took command of the broken
forces and rallied them near that place, but the enemy in overwhelming force fell iijxui bis twice
defeated troojis, utterly routing them. Collecting his forces, General Nelson fell Imek to Ix-xington,
and sul>se<juently to Frankfort and Louisville.

AVhile these oj>erations were trans]>iring in Kentucky, tlie whole front of attairs in Tennessee had
undergone a change. On the ITtb of August, the enemy crossed three biindred chivalry and three
thousand infantry to the north side of the Tenneesee River at Chattanooga. General Buell, believing
this force to be the advance of General Bragg's army, tlirected (ieneral Thomas to call (general
"Wood's division n|> to within sup|iorting distance of liiin at McMinnville. On tlie 20tli, General J'uell
nioveil from Iluntsville toward J)echerd, arriving tbeix- on the '2'2t\. Br;igg had erossetl to the
north side of the Tennessee River with a largo forci', and (Tcncral Thomas was dirceteil to move
forward with the force under his command to Altamont, and there form a junction with (ieneral.s
McCook's, Critteuden's, antl SclnK'pf's divisions which were to concentrate at Tracy City, (^n arriving
at Altamont, General Thomas became satir.liecl that the extreme ditticnlty of en«;siiig the mountains
with a large army, woiihl bar Bragg from making a rapid advance by that route; and as water aiiii
forage were scarce, he returned with his command to McMinnville. On the 2t>tli, Mc'Cook's, Critten-
den's, and Schoepfs (livisions were coiicentrateil in the vicinity of Pelham; McCook and Crittenden
having nioveil up from Battle Creek, passing near Tracy City, while Schoeiif moved out from Ueelu'rd.
From Pelham McCook moved out and look po.-ition at .Mfaniont. On the 28th, Colonel Grose
encoiintere<l Forri'sl's cavalry near AVoodbury, driving il frnm the field; the next <lay Forrest attacked
u stockade on the railroad eight miles from' McMinnville, anil was repulsed; on the ll'.th he was met
by AVood's advance near Cleiinont Springs and pursueil to the iiiler.section of the Manchester and
Smithfielil, and the Murfreesboro and McMinnville roads, where he was ovt-rtaken and his itnnmand
dispersed.

(ieneral liuell now directed the withdrawal of his army to Murfree.sboro. Genend Crittenden's
division moved tVoin llillsboro, via Manchester and Hoover's (Jap, reaching Murfreesboro on the 2d of

and then followed Schoepf, reaohing Mni-fi-eesboro on the oth. Iloover't; Gap wju^ continually oeenpied
xuitil the last division had passed. General Thomas fell hack with Generals AVood's and Ammen's
divisions, via Clermont Springs, "Wdodhury, and Eeadyville, reaching Slurfreeshoro on the 5th. From
Murfree.sboro General jBuell fell back to Kaslnille, and cros.siug the Cumberland Kiver at that place,
continued liis retreat into Kentnc]<y, with Generals McCook's, Crittenden's, Annnen's, Wood's, and
Rousseaii''s divisions; leaving General Thomas at Nashville with his own and Generals R. B. Mitchell's,
iS'eo-ley's. and Paine's divisions. Bragg had crossed the Cumberland Ki\-ei- at Cartilage and above, and
was iavadiuo- Kentncky by way of Siwttsboro and Glasgow; leaving Breckinridge with a large force
behind to invest Nashville.

The g-arrison at ]\Iullfords^•ille, Kentncky, was attacked on the l;5th of September, by a brigade
of the enemy's cavalry; the attack was repeated on the 1-ith and ItUh, the enemy receiving large
re-enforc-ements; on the ITth, the garrison surrendered to General BragL'.

On the 15th, General Thomas started with liis division from Nashville to join General Buell in
Kentucky, having previously sent forward General B. B. Mitchell's division. On the 20th, General
Thomas joined General Buell at Prewitt's Kaob, confronted by the enemy; considerable skirmishing
took place, and a battle seemed innniiient, but on the 21st the enemy withdrew, and General Buell pushed
on to Louis\ille, his advance reaching there on tlie 25th, aiul his rear division on the 29th.

At Louisville the army wa* reorganized, and General Nelson's ]-aw troops were intermingled with
the old troops; throe corjjs were formed, denominated the First, Second, and Third, conmiaiided
respectively by Maj. Gen. A. McD. McCook, Brig. Gen. C. C. Gilbert, and Maj. Gen.T.L. Crittenden;
each coiys c<jusisting of three divisions. On the 29th of September, General Thonnis received orders
irom General Halleck a.ssigning him to the command of the Army of the Ohio, but declining, and
m-ging that General Buell be re^a^ncd in command, the order was rescinded, and General Buell remained
in couunand. The next day Genend Thomas was placed second in connnand of the Army of the Ohio.

General Buell adnuiced fi-om Louisville on the 1st of October ; General Sill's cUxision movuig on
the left toward Fraiddbrt, to hold tJie enemy in check in that direction ; Generals McCook's, Gilbert's,
and Crittejideu's c-<jrps marching Ijy different routes toward Baj-dsto\i-n ; each cohunn skirmished with
the enemy's cavah-y and artillej-y from within a few miles of Louisville, the skirmishing growing more
severe near Bardstown, from which place tJic enemy's infantiy retired eight iiours before the arrival ot
General BuelFs forces, his cavalrx- retiring tifter a sharp engagement with General Buell'-s cavalry. The
enemy fell back tow;u-d Perryville- General McCook's corps m(5ved in jiursuit Irom Blo(.>nitield and
Generals Crittenden's and Gilbeil's corps from Bardstown.

THE BATTLE.

On the afternoon of the Ttii, (General Gilbert's corp^ an-j\cd within three miles of Perryville, and
was drawn up in order of Iwttle, the enemy appearing to lie in force. The advance under Captain Gay,
consisting of cavalry <uid artillery, supported toward evening by infantry, pressed the enenjy's rear
guard to within two mik« of the town, against stubborn resistance. Creneral Buell's army had sulfered
niuch for 'three days from scarcity of water; that night C(donel D. McCook's brigade of General
Sheridan's division adviuiced and seized a coimmmding ])osJtion, wliicli covered some pools of w.iter in
the bed of Doctor's Creek, securing a supply of bad water for the troops. Being convinced that the
enemy were concentrating at PeiTyville for battles (b'lici'al BiuH ordered Generals Crittenden's and
McCuok's corps to move forwai'd ajid take position ivsjiectix eh' on tiie riglit and left of (riUiert's corps.
Early on the morning of the Sth, the enemy attempte<l to drive McCook's brigade lr.;-m tjjc po-itioii
covering the pools of water. Genends Mitchell's and Siieridan's divisions were moved into position to
defeat the niovenu'Ut. A spirited attai-k was made on McCook's position, wln'cl) was handsomely repulsed.

extreme hit. (ieneral Terrill's brigade, composed of new troops, was driven back. General Jackson,
commamliiig liie divinion, ami General Terrill were both killed. Pouring into the gaji thus opened
between (iilbert and liousseau, the enemy pressed Kousseau's right with an overwhelming force, com-
pelling it to fall back, which it did in good order, until re-enforced by Gooding's and Steedmaii's
brigades, when the enemy was re]>ulsod. Sinudtaneonsly with the heaviest attack on Kousseau, the
enemy strongly assailed Sheridan's right; Sheridan was re-ciiforced l>y Carlin's brigade of Mitchell's
division, which charged the enemy and drove him through the town to his position beyond. General
Thomas, after having formed Crittenden's corps in order of battle, notified General Buell of his j>osition,
receiving orders to hoM one division in readiness to re-enforce the centre if necessary, iind to rceonnoiter
his fr<»nt ami see if the enemy had strengthened his left, or was withdrawing; he found the enemy in
his front, but received no order to advance until darkness had terminated the (conflict. During the
night McCook's coq)s moved to the right and closed on Gili)ert's left; ho was ordered to hold his
position, taking advantage of any opportunity that the events of the day might present. General's
Crittenden's atid Gilbert's corps were ordered to move forward at 6 a. m., and attack the enemy's front

ari.l left Hank.

The advance on tlie following morning discovered that the enemy liad retired (hu-ing the night,
falling back to Ilarrod.-iiurg, but without evidence of haste or disorder. Learning that (n-ncral E. Kirby
Smilli's force ha<l marched to form a junction with Uragg, (iciieral Buell determined to await the arrival
of General Sill's division which had been ordered forward from Frankfort; in the meantime he ]>laced
his armv in i>osition with the right four miles from Danville, the centre on the IVrryville and Ilarrods-
bnrg pike, and the left (»n the roads converging on Harrodsburg. On the 11th the enemy retired from
llarrod>bmg. (ieneral Buell advanced McCook's corps to that place, advancing at the same time
(Gilbert's and Crittenden's corps on roads leading to the right. On the evening of the 13th, the enemy
was found to be retreating south. Pursuit was immediately commenced and General P.uell's army
advanced to Danville, and from thence to Crali Orchard, where Generals Gilbert's and McCook's cori)6
were halted ; Crittenden's corps continued the pursuit as far as Loudon on the direct road, and on tho
branch load to Manchester. Pursuit was now discontinued, McCook's and Gilbert's corps nuirchingto
Powling (Jreen, and Crittenden's corps to Glasgow, Kentucky.

MAJOR GENERAL ROSECRANS' CAMPAIGN.

STONE RIVER CAMPAIGN.

Maj. Gen. Rosecrans assumed command of the army of fjie Cumberland on the 27th day of October,
1862, then concentrated at Bowling Green and Glasgow, Ky. The ami}' moved thence to Nashville,
Tennessee, where the advance corps arrived November Vth. The railroad was then opened through
to Nashville, and trains commenced i-unning November 26th. The army remaii\ed at Nashville, from
November 26th to December 26th, during which time supplies were brought forward.

The enemy having sent a large cavahy force into West Tennessee, and another into Kentucky,
the occasion was seized for an advance. Polk's and Kir])y Smith's corps were at Murfreesboro, and
Hardee's on the pike between Triune and Shelby ville. The movement began December 26th: General
McCook. advanced on Mm^freesboro, \'ia Nolensville, Triune, and Wilkinson's Cross Roads, driving the
erlemy from Nolensville and Knob's Gap, one and one-half miles South. General Thomas advanced
on the Franklin and Wilson pikes, threatening Ilardee, who retreated to Murfreesboro. Thomas then
fell in by cross roads to Nolensville and Stewartsboro, and from thence advanced on Murfreesboro, via
Wilkinson's cross roads. Crittenden advanced on the Murfreesboro pike, via Lavergne, driving the
enemy before him.

By night of December 30th the army was concentrated in the vicinity of Stone River: McCook
forming the right, Thomas the centre, and Crittenden the left. General Ro.sec-rans sought to turn the
enemy's right ; McCook was to take an advantageous position, refusing his right sufficiently to sci-urc it ;
Thomas to open wtli sldrmishing on the centre; Crittenden to mass his troops and hurl them on the
enemy's right. This movement if successful, was to be sustained by Thomas on the centre.

THE BATTLE.

On the morning of December 3Jst Crittenden ]irei>an'd to attack the enemy's right. Meanwhile
Bragg had massed on McCook's front, and at half past six a. m. threw heavy columns upon iJavis's and
.Tohn.son's divisions, which, after desperate fighting, were driven back. Rousseau moved into the cedar
