War Diary of Luman Harris Tenney.

13th. Breakfasted in town about 5 A. M., at Mrs. Harper’s, very kind and hospitable people. Mrs. Derban’s husband Q. M. in Grant’s Army. Two little girls sang “Down With the Traitor.” Passed through several German towns, very patriotic. Passed through Lawrenceburgh. Reached the Whitewater at dusk. T. and I stopped at a German’s for supper and napped till 2 A. M. Rebels burned the bridge, compelling us to ford the river.
