1862 December 28 near Murfreesboro

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

                        Dec. 28th, ’62.
Sabbath morning, -
clear & bright. All quiet
this morning. Immense
fields of cotton; the cot-
ton, which is in bales, is
torn to pieces & put in piles
by the boys for beds.

[transcript by Mary Roy Dawson Edwards]
