Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes

Steamboat Victress, Ohio River, July 22, 1863.

Dear Uncle: — We have been after Morgan for a week. The Twenty-third was in all the fighting at Pomeroy and Buffington and took two hundred and six prisoners. The Rebs couldn’t fight soldiers at all. We lost one man. We had a most glorious time. We go up the Kanawha again today.


R. B. Hayes.

S. Birchard.
