HEADQUARTERS ARMY OF THE OHIO, In the Field, December 17, 1864. Major General GEORGE H. THOMAS,
GENERAL: I have the honor to inform you that citizens on the road in rear of where we fought yesterday report that the universal testimony of rebels, officers and men, is that Forrest was killed certainly at Murfreesborough, where they admit their cavalry was badly whipped.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. M. SCHOFIELD,
