August 1862 marked the most action-filled month in the military career of John Hunt Morgan. After his successful Kentucky raid, Morgan's command was settled around Hartsville, Tennessee, which was located east of Gallatin. Major General Don Carlos Buell sent the Federal Army of the Ohio back to Nashville while the Confederate Army of Mississippi's commander General Braxton Bragg sent his troops to Chattanooga. Some of Buell's forces occupied some of the outlying towns so that Nashville would be protected from Confederate movements. As Gallatin served as the center of Morgan's operations, Morgan conquered Gallatin on August 12, 1862, and was able to capture Colonel William P. Boone, his wife, and several of those soldiers included in the Twenty-eight Kentucky Infantry Regiment.
