Diary and Letters of Rutherford Birchard Hayes

Camp White, January 1, 1864.

Dear Uncle: — . . . This is New Year’s day. Bright but very cold and windy. My regiment has re-enlisted and a majority of the men and part of the officers have gone home. I expect to go to Ohio towards the last of this month.


R. B. Hayes.

S. Birchard.
