War Diary of Luman Harris Tenney.

3rd. Col. blamed none but himself yesterday; said he had misgivings immediately and thought fortunate that all were not taken. Moved before midnight. Camped at 2 A. M. near a creek, “Muddy,” called, I believe. Five miles from Bull’s Gap. In P. M. alarm, and 2nd and 7th took positions and had some skirmishing. One man, Co. “A,”‘ killed. Went back to camp and 7th Ohio relieved us. Camped a mile farther on. Got forage and settled down.
