Manuscript Account of Battle of Milton, Tennessee, and University Heights,
2007, Western & Historic Americana, Dec 6th and 7th
unsigned, both roughly 6 x 10" pencilled on lined paper. One manuscript page is a detailed account written on both sides of the paper of the battle near Milton, Tennessee, fought by Colonel (Albert S.) Hall's command consisting of the 101st Indiana, 105th Ohio, and 19th Indiana Battery and a large force of Rebel cavalry under General John Hunt Morgan on March 13, 1863. Probably post-war, the battle account mentions several junior officers by name and is annotated with page numbers from published sources suggesting a later draft document rather than being a period account or report. The second manuscript is titled On Cumberland Mountain University Heights and describes a proposed grand Southern College to be established at a cost of three million dollars. The college was never completed and the unknown author describes Union soldiers pilfering the cornerstone and finding a hymn-book Bible and some gold coins, the former said to have been carried by Genl. (Winfield) Scott all through the Mexican War. This draft document written in the same hand also bears annotations referencing published sources.

Condition:  
Both manuscript pages brittle and dogeared with fold lines and chipped paper along edges, G.
