Inscription. At Spring Creek, Forrest, successful in the first part of his raid, regrouped his small brigade for further raids on Federals to the north. Here the 4th Alabama (Col. Russell), covering his rear, put to rout several companies of Federal cavalry and a regiment of infantry supported by two batteries of artillery.
