I based my statements on Wiley Sword's book The Confederacy's Last Hurrah: Spring Hill, Franklin, Nashville. I'm having to dig in it now because I haven't read it in a couple of years. I'll have to reread the chapter about the escape from Spring Hill. At a glance, I do see that even with super human efforts to maintain silence, the Union columns and wagon trains did suffer some sporadic attacks during the night.

I will reread this book as soon as I finish Southern Storm. The picture I had after my first reading was of how well the Schofield's troops crept by silently in the night. Rereading the book may change my image of the scenario.
