Huntsville Road, Day 2

Nelson's Division continues their march to the east on the Huntsville Road on this day in 1862.  Captain Cox provided this brief report.

Had reveille at 2 A M and were on the road at 3 o'clock.  Traveled nine miles and came up with the rear of Crittenden's Division where we halted and remained until 3 P M.  Traveled today fifeteen miles.  The roads are in fine condition, the dust being laid by a shower at noon.*
