Mill Springs Battleﬁeld
— National Historic Landmark —Shortly before daylight on January 19, 1862, the lead elements of the Confederate column encountered Union pickets—a guard detachment—at Timmy's Branch about a mile south of here. The Confederates fired on the Union troops, who retreated in haste. W.J. Worsham, 19th Tennessee Infantry, recalled, "Sunday morning at daylight the Cavalry ran upon the enemy's pickets one and one half mile out in their front. A few shots were exchanged and the enemy slowly fell back to his main line."
