MARCH TO THE OHIO RIVER - DAY 14
The 16th Ohio, brigaded with DeCourcey's 26th Bridgade and part of Gen. George W. Morgan's 7th Division, Army of the Ohio, broke camp at 3:00am and resumed their march. Two heavy blockades were encountered, one of which was cut away and the other evaded by cutting a new road of almost a mile in length. They didn't stop until 5:00pm, having marched almost 12 hours. The troops made camp without creating fires, no fresh water and very little food, making just eight miles this day. Their next milestone, Grayson, Kentucky, was still to the north and it was not known if the large Rebel infantry force would beat them there.
