The New York Herald, 1862
"Morgan’s guerillas in Kentucky do not seem to be progressing so favorably as was supposed. Reports via Maysville yesterday state that our cavalry had overtaken Morgan’s band on the road to Owensville from Mount Sterling. After an hour and a half’s fight Morgan’s forces were completely scattered, and the cannon and horses captured by him at Cynthiana were retaken, as was also a large portion of the stolen property. The rebels lost twenty-five killed. Our loss is twenty killed."
