Description of Battle
As Brig. Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest 's Expedition into West Tennessee neared it's conclusion, Union Brig. Gen Jeremiah C. Sullivan, with the brigades of Col. Cyrus L. Dunham and Col.John W. Fuller, attempted to cut Forrest off from withdrawing across the Tennessee River.
At daybreak, Col. Dunham marched his brigade from Clarksburg to Parker's Cross-Roads.
His Federals repelled frontal assaults until attacked on both flanks & the rear. Forrest sent Dunham a demand for surrender. Dunham refused and was preparing for Forrest's next attack when Fuller's Union brigade arrived from the north, and surprised the Confederates with an attack on their rear.
"Charge em both ways", ordered Forrest. The Confederates reversed fronts, repelled Fuller, then rushed past Dunham's demoralized force and withdrew south to Lexington and crossed the Tennessee River.
