Schofield's Withdrawal
Nov. 24, 1864

Moving from this area, Cox's Division led Stanley's XXIII Corps in a rapid retreat to Columbia. They arrived in time to prevent Forrest's Cavalry Corps, which had run over Union cavalry outposting the town, from seizing the bridge over Duck River and cutting off Schofield's retreat from Nashville.
