Text: The Battle of the Cedars (a.k.a. the Third Battle of Murfreesboro), December 7, 1864, was the first time that Confederate Nathan Bedford Forrest was given command of Infantry, Cavalry, and Artillery. Commanding General John Bell Hood ordered Forrest to take Fortress Rosecrans, the largest earthen fort on the continent, with only a few thousand men. Forrest lured out part of the garrison, but was so concerned with the disposition of his Cavalry that he was unable to preform his duties as a commander. Forrest's men were routed from the field. This battle was an attempt to disrupt Union supplies during the Nashville Campaign while Hood was camped outside the city.
