A Bold MoveThe fight at Kingston began around dawn on August 30, 1862, with skirmishers on both sides trading shots. Upon being notified of the exchange, Union Gen. Mahlon Manson led his men south along the State Road. He deployed his brigade of the Army of Kentucky along the ridges on either side of Mt. Zion Church, placing artillery between each of the three infantry regiments. Another infantry regiment was held in reserve. While the Union forces marched south, a Confederate division under Gen. Patrick Cleburne pushed north from Bobtown. Soon a terrific artillery duel began. The barrage was heard as far away as Winchester.
