Buffington's Island wasn't Morgan's first setback on that raid. On July 4, 1863, 200 men of the 25th MI Infantry held off over 1,500 of Morgan's troopers and supporting artillery at the Tebb's Bend of the Green River near Columbia, KY, repelling 8 assaults on their position and saving Louisville from sack and ruin.
I agree with your point but this Civil War Trust snippet didn't state Buffington Island was Morgan's first setback. Unless I am missing something......
