Diary of Sergeant Major Luman Harris Tenney: July 8, 1863

Breakfasted and moved out about sunrise. Boys found amusement reading our brother soldiers' letters which Morgan had feasted upon. Morgan reported near Elizabethtown. Find he turned off towards Brandenburg on the Ohio Road, over the hills. Reached Garnettsville before dark. Some fun with a girl who thought I looked like her former sweetheart — now dead. Three miles from Ohio. Morgan across the river. Captured several steamboats. Lay in the road till morn.
