Diary of Ephraim Shelby Dodd, Co. D of Terry's Texas Rangers

Wednesday, July 1st—Army in full retreat. Came on to Alisony bout 11 o’clock. While on the move from that point my mare fell and broke her left foreleg just below the knee. John Henry was left with me. We came on short distance and went to sleep. I left my mare where the accident happened.
