Civil War Diaries, October 12, 1862

Ashley Carpenter Diary Entry:

“Oct. 12  Visited the Semetery a beautiful place a quarter of a mile distant.  Saw there the tomb of Kentucky’s founder Daniel Boone.  Another monument struck on with admiration as being a memorial that would inspire with bravery every soldier.  It was one of beautiful marble 60 feet in hight with inscriptions of Hereos that fell upon many a sanginnary field.

In the afternoon I washed myself in the K.Y. river where the veteran Boone had bathed in former days.”
