Wednesday, July 22, 1863

Morgan reported to have abandoned [?] most of whom surrendered.
All quiet at Camp Cutler--in the morning.  But about 9 o’clock Capt. Madeira of Col. Hill’s Staff called to say that Col. Brown’s Regiment were ordered up to take possession of the rifle pits at this point.  They marched up and arrived here before noon.  They crowded in to our house.  The surgeon demanded rooms for the patients and was too drunk to know when he was well treated.  We invited Col. Brown & staff to make their Head Quarters here.  Regiments short of rations - we made tea & coffee and distributed also bread & butter, pie and gingerbread.  A part of the 19th Ohio Battery with their brass field pieces camped in turnpike between here & Mr. Bailey’s--Morgan reported near Amesville.
