After General Buell was removed from his position as the Federal Army of the Ohio's commander in Nashville on October 30, 1862, the Lincoln administration assigned Major General William S. Rosecrans to take Buell's place. As such, the army was renamed the “Army of the Cumberland.” As General Bragg returned to central Tennessee, the “Army of Tennessee” was directed to occupy areas near Murfreesboro. Compared to the situation in Bragg's army in which only a few men flocked to ranks during the Kentucky invasion, Morgan's army entered Kentucky with two cavalry battalions, an artillery section, and a cavalry regiment. John Hunt Morgan was commissioned a brigadier general by December 1862 and was able to command a cavalry division made up of two brigades that were each assigned with an artillery battery.
