Official Records (CS) Roddey to Polk reporting Federal cannonading near Spring Hill

MARCH 11, 1863–10 a.m.
General POLK,  Headquarters Shelbyville:

Yours of yesterday 6 p.m. is at hand. I send another courier to put on the line with this dispatch. I have one post between here and Unionville, one at Unionville, and will now have two between that point and Shelbyville, with instructions to divide the distance equally. I have nothing new to send from any direction. I hear some cannonading, said to be in the direction of Spring Hill. It has continued, at intervals, since sunrise this morning to within the last fifteen minutes. I have scouting parties gone in the direction of Eagleville, College Grove, and Raleigh Hill.

Very respectfully,
P. D. RODDEY,
Colonel, Commanding
