The Battle of Middle Creek: January 10, 1862. An untested Colonel James A. Garfield led a newly formed brigade of 3,600 men into eastern Kentucky to repel an invading rebel army of equal size. Garfield's victory earned him a promotion to brigadier general and set the stage for his election to Congress. SPEAKER: David Lintern.
