Diary of Lieutenant-Colonel Rutherford B. Hayes: Thursday, June 12, 1862

Flat Top Mountain. — A warm, bright, seasonable morning. Heard of Fremont's battle near Port Republic. As yet doubtful as to the result; shall look anxiously for the next news. . . . The battle before Richmond looks better, the more we see of it.
