Holladay in Benton County, Tennessee — The American South (East South Central)
“Charge ‘em both ways”
—Forrest's First West Tennessee Raid —
Forrest narrowly avoided defeat. At first his men fought Dunham’s force to a standstill, but then Fuller’s command appeared in the Confederate rear. Forrest ordered a breakout in each direction: “Charge ‘em both ways.” The counterattacks succeeded, and Forrest and his men crossed the river again at Clifton on January 2, 1863. His successful raid contributed to Grant’s decision
