Kate Cumming: A Journal of Hospital Life in the Confederate Army of Tennessee.

November 4. [Chattanooga] —Had a man die to-day by the name of Thomas Ford, of the Second Kentucky — “Morgan’s Squadron.” He was from Glasgow, Ky.

Our hospital is filled with men from Cheatham’s command. I am told it suffered most at Perryville. We have few wounded, as they wore left in Kentucky.

They say that the Kentuckians, on leaving their state, many of them old men, cried like children. They think it is gone from them forever, but I trust not.
