—September 28, 1864, 2:00 a.m. - 6:00 a.m. —The Union army evacuated Ft. Davidson at about 2:00 a.m. on September 28. Despite having to pass between the campfires of Dobbin's brigade, Gen. Ewing marched his men undetected through the Confederate lines and to the Caledonia&mdashPotosi Rd. After learning the next day that the enemy occupied Potosi, Ewing turned westward at Caledonia, and despite pursuit by elements of Price's army, led his troops to Leasburg situated on the Pacific Railroad.
