A nerd's-eye view of obscure Richland Creek (Tenn.) battlefield


On Dec. 24, 1864 at Richland Creek, roughly eight miles north of Pulaski, Tenn., U.S. Army cavalry fought the rearguard of John Bell Hood's Army of Tennessee in the aftermath of the Battle of Nashville. Forces: 6,000 U.S. cavalry and 12 guns; 3,000 Confederate with eight guns. Visitors to battlefield besides my hypnotist pal Jack and I: 0. We were in good spirits because of stops earlier in the morning in nearby Lynnville at Soda Pop Junction for Big Johnny's burgers and then apple and cherry pies at the Lynnville Fried Pie Company. 😆
