The Battle of Kingsport
On December 13, 1864, Major General George Stoneman's 5,500 Federal calvary met and defeated 300 Confederate cavalry under Colonel Richard C. Morgan. The confederate soldiers were deployed along the bluffs on the eastern banks of the Holston River. Union Colonel Samuel K.N. Patton of Kingsport led a flanking attack across the Holston that helped dislodge the Confederate troops.
