Diary of Lieutenant-Colonel Rutherford B. Hayes: Monday, September 8, 1862

Camp near Leesboro, Maryland. — Nothing new this morning. Men from Ohio all in a talk about General Reno's abusive language. It is said that when talking with me he put his hand on his pistol; that many standing by began to handle their arms also! I am sorry the thing goes so far.
