Gen. George W. Morgan's Union forces occupied Cumberland Gap June 18 to Sept. 17, 1862. Cut off from supplies and surrounded, Morgan with 9,000 men withdrew. They camped here Sept. 19-21, to perfect organization for march. Made fruitless supply search. Entire retreat to Ohio River, 200 miles, made in 16 days despite harassment by CSA Morgan's Raiders.
