Digitized letter dated November 5, 1863, written from Chattanooga, by Captain John S. McGraw, 57th Indiana Vols., Commanding Co. "B." He attests that on or about September 15, 1862, in Bowling Green, Kentucky, he placed 12 Enfield rifles and 13 sets of accouterments in the baggage train bound for Louisville, but the train didn't arrive until after the army had left. By the time they caught up with the train, the armaments had disappeared.
On the back of the page are affidavits from 1st Lt. Thomas D. Ridge and Captain Edward B. Howe, both of Company B of the 57th Indiana Volunteers, backing up Captain McGraw's statement.
