Diary of Lieutenant-Colonel Rutherford B. Hayes: Monday, April 14, 1862

Still raining. No further knowledge of movements. Lieutenant Reichenbach's party that went to Columbus with prisoners, returned this evening. We hear of the taking of Huntsville, Alabama, today, the death of Beauregard, and news of the siege of Yorktown.
