150 WEST TENN. AND NORTHERN MISS. [CHAP. XXIX.
A young man who lives 3 miles from here on the road they left by
states that he was concealed in the bushes as they passed and saw
several dead and wounded men, and heard them remark that they lost
11 killed and 13 wounded.
A man named Young, who lives near the switch, reports that they
were Falkner's cavalry, commanded by Colonel Falkner, who told him
he would have to go with him. In the excitement he escaped.
We found 7 cavalry sabers, 5 guns, 8 or 10 bloody coats, and 30 or 40
hats and caps. Seven companies were represented by letters on the
caps found. Young reports that the whole regiment was there. We
replaced the single rail they tore up and mended the wire before sunrise
the next morning.
I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
