We went into camp on Duck River, by a church where I was pastor my second year in the Conference, six years ago. The Army of Tennessee remained in camp around Shelbyville, Tennessee, for full five months. Our division changed its camping place several times, but nearly all the time we were either on Duck River or Flat Creek in the bounds of my second pastoral charge, where I found many friends.

The five preachers mentioned, and Rev. Geo. D. Guiner, Lieutenant Fourth Tennessee, were members of the Tennessee Conference. Our brigade marched into Eastern Kentucky under General Zollicoffer, who was unfortunate in both encounters under his command, and the noble-hearted man lost his life the first year of the war at Fishing Creek, Kentucky. The Fourth and Eleventh Tennessee Regiments were ordered to Cumberland Gap, where we established comfortable winter quarters. The soldiers did not take interest enough in religious services to prepare a place of public worship. But whenever the weather was at all favorable we had service for all who were disposed to attend. Very few of the commissioned officers were religious. The large proportion of the soldiers were wicked and many were reckless. For more than a year very f

Several days were spent in Augusta furnishing papers for the soldiers who were passing through the city.

We are under special obligations to Major W. F. Ayer, Chief Quartermaster, Major Jno. S.

The city is rapidly evacuated, to the sorrow and surprise of many citizens and soldiers — the first scene of the kind I have yet witnessed.

October 6. Crossed the Kentucky River and passed through Pleasant Hill or Shakertown —a lovely place. Peace and prosperity prevail here. Never a marriage or birth in the town. None go to war.
