[Identification of item], Thomas Theodore Crittenden papers, 1862, 1VF87M20, Special Collections, University of Kentucky. Lawyer. Thomas Crittenden was born January 2, 1832 in Shelby County, Kentucky, the son of Henry and Anna Maria.  He attended school at Cloverport, graduated from Centre College in Danville in 1855 and married Carrie W. Jackson in 1856.  From May of 1862 until the close of the Civil War, Crittenden served as Lieutenant Colonel with the 7th Missouri Cavalry.  After the war, he practiced law, filled an unexpired term as Missouri Attorney General, served as a member of Congress (1877-1881), served as Governor of Missouri (1881-1885) and was consul general in Mexico from 1893 to 1897. This is the official report that Crittenden sent to Washington, D. C. on the first engagement at Murfreesboro, Tennessee, between the Union army and the Confederates. A complete description of the circumstances at  Murfreesboro, before the battle and a detailed account of Crittenden's own actions and orders during the actual conflict as well as a request for an official investigation of the actions of Colonel Henry C. Lester are included.  Appended to this is a corroborative account written by J. G. Parkhurst, commander of the 9th Michigan Infantry, which describes the particulars of the battle, including the conduct of various officers, the attack by civilians and "quite a number of Negroes", as well as the surrender of the three divisions and their subsequent captivity.  The report includes lists of the dead, missing and wounded under his command. Arranged chronologically. Crittenden, Thomas Theodore, 1832-1909. Lester, Henry C.
