Russellville Junction

—September 26, 1864, 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. —

Slemons' brigade, riding in advance of the rebel army, was first spotted at 1 p.m. by pickets here at the Russellville Junction. After the pickets had sounded the alarm, a cavalry patrol rode here to verify the pickets report. Despite much shooting there were no casualties on either side. This phase of the conflict ended at 2:30 p.m. when the Union cavalry fled leaving the road to Ironton open to the Confederate advance.
