Here, in the cavalry action following the battle of Chickamauga the Confederate cavalry regiments of Dibrell and Morrison attacked Wolford's cavalry brigade, captured 700 prisoners, six mountain howitzers, 50 wagons loaded with stores, 10 ambulances and a quantity of horses and mules. The Federal survivors fled to Loudon. Personnel casualties were small.
