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

Friday, 19th—I find one of the 11th Texas here, three or four of the 2nd Georgia. I send out a summons to the Lodge for assistance; two members call on me and promise to attend to my case, but I hear no more from them. Another squad of 96 prisoners came in, also three of Morgan’s men, Messrs. Church and Smith.

Maj. Smith of Wheeler’s staff called on us. Two other squads came in. With the last came Will Morton of the Battery or Company F. Alexander takes the oath and left us. Morton, myself, the two Churches and two Smiths form the mess.
