1862 November 2 Glasgow, Ky.

[from the diary of Captain William F. Hunter of Co. B, 97th Ohio]

   Nov. 1st, ’62.
Moved at about 5
A.M. this morn-
ing; passed through
Glasgow, which is
a town about the
size of Barnesville,
Ohio, and encamped
about a mile this
side, at 9 A.M.
The fact that we

are engaged in
making out our
pay-rolls, accounts
for our stopping
so early in the
day.  Rolls are to
be made out every
sixty day[s], but not
always paid then.
