then. The rebels are mounted on the fastest horses in the. country,
and they use them very much to our disadvantage. If all of my
regiment were here and mounted, I would soon disperse the rebels. I
again urge the necessity of mounting my entire regiment and order-
ing it to the field.
I respectfully ask that this communication be forwarded to dep)art-
ment headquarters for the information of the general commanding.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully,

Report of Col. Stephen G. Hicks, Fortieth Illinois Infantry.
February 29, 1864.
On the 22d instant I received news from Mayfield, Ky., that the
place was threatened by a band of guerrillas. I ordered Lieutenant
Cunningham, commanding colored troops, to start at daylight with
200 of his men to go as fast as he could to Mayfield, and stay there
until further orders.
He left here on the morning of the 23d, went within 15 miles of
that place, and encamped at 3 a. m. The guerrillas entered May-
field, killed J. B. Happy, a good Union man, took Parson Dugger
prisoner, put him in heavy bonds, robbed.three stores (all belonging
to Union men), took all the goods they wanted, and' destroyed the
rest, and then left.
Lieutenant Cunningham arrived there early on the 24th, and will
remain there until further orders.

Colonel, Commanding Post.
