On July 4, 1864, a small brigade of
Confederate cavalry under the command
of Col. Robert C. Wood attacked a
Union force composed of the Mississippi
Marine Brigade and two regiments of
United States Colored Troops on an
expedition from Rodney. Although the
Marine Brigade was routed, the two
USCT regiments, composed of former
slaves from Mississippi, distinguished
themselves during the engagement.
Defeated at Coleman's Crossroads,
the Federals returned to Rodney.
