The Army of Mississippi passed here. Forrest's Cavalry Brigade, reporting Sept. 3, moved out to screen the left flank. Here, Sept. 5, Bragg advised his army of Kirby Smith's victory at Richmond, Ky., Aug. 30. At Milledgeville, 10 mi. N., Bragg, with Polk's Right Wing, turned west to pass through Carthage: Hardee's Left Wing, screened by Wheeler's Cavalry Brigade, moved north through Gainesboro. The columns united at Tompinsville, Ky.
