About 1/2 mile east, Buford's Division of Forrest's Cavalry Corps drove in pickets from Opdyke's and Lane's Federal Brigades and contained their defenses, extending west to the railroad. Meanwhile, Stewart's Corps, marching north further eastward, with orders to bar the Nashville road, was halted by order from Hood. This caused the entire operation plan to fail, resulting in the Battles of Franklin and Nashville.
