Diary of Sergeant Major Luman Harris Tenney: Sunday, November 16, 1862

It commenced raining early and kept it up all day. Felt weak and miserable. Still did my duties as sergeant Maj. Some seventy odd contrabands came in from Indian Territory — Creeks. A good many had arms. They had a skirmish with bushwhackers. Seven of their men killed.
