Mill Springs BattlefieldIn November 1861, the Confederate army commanded by General Felix Zollicoffer arrived in Mill Springs, Kentucky, on the south side of the Cumberland River. A month later, Zollicoffer had moved 6,000 men to the north side of Cumberland and constructed a line of fortifications a mile long. Union General Don Carlos Buell, commander of the Army of the Ohio, ordered General George Thomas to find Zollicoffer's army and destroy it.
