Official Records (CS) Russell to Roddey reports news from CS scouts, Federals at Eagleville

HEADQUARTERS PICKET,
Rover, March 7, 1863.
[Col. P. D. RODDEY :]

My scouts report that two regiments of cavalry, with artillery, moved out in sight of my pickets, supported by infantry, but made no attack, and returned.

The cavalry encamped to-night 2 miles beyond Eagleville, the infantry (five regiments) moving in the direction of Triune. Scouts were 2 miles beyond Versailles; no enemy there. Citizens report that three brigades of infantry, with wagon train, have moved in the direction of Triune from Murfreesborough.
[A. A.] RUSSELL,
Colonel.
