The Left Wing, Anny of Mississippi, passed here on Bragg's invasion of Kentucky, which culminated in the profitless Battle of Perryville. The Wing Commander was Major General William J. Hardee; the two division commanders were Patton Anderson and Simon Bolivar Buckner. Col. Joseph Wheeler's Cavalry Brigade screened the advance-of this wing and of the right flank of the army.
