John Hunt Morgan went to the roads found at the west of Buell's path as General Buell's army marched west of Bragg's, and while General Bragg's army withdrew from Kentucky. On October 18, several elements that included Duke's Second Kentucky Cavalry, the Battalions of Gano and Breckinridge, Captain C. C. Corbett's mountain howitzers, and Morgan and his command all rode to Versailles and rested near Lawrenceburg. Morgan's command found that two infantry divisions of the Union and their operations were located at Frankfort, Kentucky. After being reunited with the other troops at Morgantown, Porter left Kentucky for Springfield and Gallatin in which whiskey was distributed among the men. Morgan moved his command to Lebanon, Tennessee after learning that Buell's army had entered Nashville.
