Why was the battle fought at Perryville?

Why was the battle fought at Perryville?
The Confederates stopped here to stay between the Union army and a supply depot they had established at Bryantsville (30 miles E/NE of Perryville). Also, despite a severe drought, small pools of water were available in Perryville’s creeks and rivers, which the soldiers badly needed. The hilly terrain around Perryville also gave the armies good defensive positions.
