Crossing Cumberland River near Rome, Morgan's Cavalry Division bivouacked about 3 miles SW of here. Near here, about sundown, Lt. Col. w.w. Ward, with a detail from the 9th Tennessee Cavalry, captured a Federal wagon train with mail, property, and sutlers' stores; most of the guard and train personnel decamped. Next morning the division left Tennessee via Gainesboro and Livingston.
