Following the American Civil War Sesquicentennial with day by day writings of the time, currently 1863.

Friday, 15th—To-night stopped to see two Lincolnites; got six shooter from one, single barrel from the other; stopped at Squire Henry’s; got some cherry bounce; played off Yankee on him; got all the information we wanted and went on to Wickwire’s; fed at Mr. Simpson’s; girls got up, chatted them awhile. I, Harper and Gibson then left the crowd, crossed the railroad and bought two horses and came on to Bracken’s and got breakfast. From there to Ashlock’s and got dinner. Came cross the pike and I left them, went by Bass’s and on to Crews and staid all night.
