Confederate OccupationOn August 18, 1862, Union-occupied Clarksville came under attack from Confederate forces to disrupt river traffic. The town was still very much a pro-Confederate hotbed of guerilla activity and the focus of Confederate cavalry raids. Confederate Col. Thomas Woodward rode at the head of two combined forces: Col. Adam R. "Stovepipe" Johnson's 10th Kentucky Partisan Rangers and Woodward's Kentucky Cavalry Battalion, veteran cavalry commands bolstered with new recruits.
