Mc- Cook launched a move- ment towards the enemy lines on December 10, which the Rebels coun- tered by partially de- stroying the Louisville & Nashville Railroad bridge over the Green River. As a result, the Union sent two companies of the 32nd Indiana Volun- teer Infantry Regiment across the river to pre- vent a surprise and began constructing a pontoon bridge for the passage of trams and artillery.
