1863 February 11-12 Murfreesboro

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


     Feb. 11th,’63.
Still recovering health
& strength, I hope.
Clear & pleasant to-
Have pains in my
joints, premonitory,
I fear, of rheumatism.
I neglected to mention,
in its proper place, that
the country around No-
lansville & Triune is very
hilly & broken, in places,
even mountainous; but
from Eagleville towards
Murfreesboro it is low,
flat & marshy.
     Feb. 12th,’63.
Cloudy & some rain.
Feel very well to-day.
