Moving to Bradyville, 14 mi. S.E., the XXI Corps (T.L. Crittenden) advanced against minor Confederate resistance on Manchester, to rendezvous with the rest of the Army under cover of Granger's feint at Shelbyville. This flanked the Army of TN out of its position in the Duck River heights and caused withdrawal to Chattanooga.
