Morton, Mississippi

We pushed on along the railroad east from Morton. There is only one good road, so I am marching both Hurlbut’s and McPherson’s columns on a single road. Hurlbut is in the lead.

Winslow’s cavalry went into Hillsboro after skirmishing with the enemy. After the enemy left, someone fired on the troops from one of the houses in town. No one could be identified, so the house was burned. The enemy abandoned many provisions in town. We took what we could carry and burned the remainder.
