Although John Hunt Morgan's operations during the winter of 1863 were characterized with the most obstruction, these operations signified some of Morgan's most important military achievements. These, as John M. Porter had remembered, made up a continuous battle. Morgan's division was tasked with screening the right flank of General Bragg's Army of Tennessee as it set out for the Highland Rim. Morgan's command was maintained in the foothills and certain elements were brought forward so that outlying Federal positions could be attacked while choosing a sector that would include both Woodbury and Liberty, Tennessee. Morgan was able to capture several Federal wagon trains and several officers and many enlisted men were either killed, wounded, or arrested between January 22 and April 30, 1863.
