Striking Ingersoll's brigade 5 miles east, Forrest overran the position to which they had retired on high ground to the south. Ingersoll and his artillery were captured. Returning 2 weeks later, Forrest rested briefly here, then crossed the river at Clifton, brushing aside the 6th Tennessee Cavalry(Federal).
