1862 November 11 Nashville Road

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

      Nov. 11th, ’62.

Cold & cloudy this
Some of the guards
& sick men left
at the camp near
Gallatin, come in
& report that a
band of Morgan’s              
cavalry attacked
our wagons to-day;
also that our in-

fantry & theirs were
fighting at the
intersection of
the Gallatin road
& the Nashville pike.
Remained in camp
