Text:

Crossing Tennessee River on July 9, Forrest's brigade marched here in two columns, where he received reinforcements of four companies. His force bivouacked in this vicinity; the following morning it marched toward Murfreesboro, where the Federal garrison was attacked, its commander Gen. T.T. Crittenden captured with about 1200 prisoners, plus a quantity of stores and munitions.


Notes:

The THC handbook shows the marker number as 2F 36, the number mat this maybe a misprint and the number may actually be 2E 36.
