1862 November 16 on Nashville Road

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



     Nov. 16th, ’62.
My feet are exceed-
ingly painful and
sore from the effects
of yesterday’s march.
Cloudy but pleas-
ant to-day. Heavy
firing – both can-
non & musketry –
heard this fore-
noon to the

South East; report-
ed that Van Cleve              
& Breckenridge are          
engaged.
Commenced rain-
ing after noon.
Did not rain at
night.

[transcript by Mary Roy Dawson Edwards]
