Diary of Sergeant Major Luman Harris Tenney: April 11, 1863

Left town soon after breakfast. Two negro slaves were snatched from the horses — oh how shameful! Am glad I did not witness the scene. Afterwards several such incidents transpired. How shocking. Major Burnett delivered up one on the word of two Ky. officers. Met the Third Batt. at Mount Sterling. Very pretty country all the way. Letters from Fannie, Will and Fred. Wrote to F. Chaplain at supper. Drake most sick.
