Additional Description: Top Photo
Michigan cavalrymen under Major William B. Way caught up with Morgan's Raiders near the Two Ridges Church and exchanged shots with the Confederates. One member of the 9th Michigan Cavalry was mortally wounded and another wounded, and one raider was wounded.

Bottom Photo
The dust raised by Morgan's retreat obscured the vision of Jefferson County militia, and they accidently fired their cannon at the pursuing Union troops. Fortunately, no one was hit.
