1862 November 19 Nashville Pike

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

     Nov. 19th, ’62.
Started early; com-
menced raining
about 9 A.M., & con-
tinued until about
4 P.M. Arrived

at Mitchellville Sta-
tion about 3 ½ P.M.
Remained there
until after dark, when
we march out the
Nashville pike, 2 ½
miles, through Mitch-
ellville town; we
encamped on a
bleak open plain where
fuel was very scarce.
Rained during
the night.
