5 3/4 x 15 1/2, in ink, written by M.H. Harman to Col. B.J. Hill.

McMinnville, (Tenn.), April the 14th, (6?)

Col. B.J. Hill,

Dear Sir,

I suppose you have heard that I left your horse. I hope you did not believe that I would take your horse and leave it under such circumstances. My word [is] my bond. I will stay in your house and take the very best care of it I can. [General Joe] Wheelerís men are in the store room but have done no serious damage. They have destroyed 3 or 4 droves is all. I have made it my special business to be in there every day once or twice and carefully examine the house and used every exertion possible in my power to prevent damage and loss. My wife has fondly gone on a visit to her Fatherís. I am here and will remain until you call for your horse. You need not listen or may hear in relation to my leaving there is not a plank missing from the fence while others have lost all their garden fences. I stand my ground and stay by what Iíve got Yankees or no Yankees. I would like to hear from you soon.

Very respectfully yours,

M.H. Harman

Light age toning and wear with an irregular right edge of the paper which does not affect any of the content. I believe this letter to be circa 1862-63.

General Benjamin J. Hill: (1825-80) Born near McMinnville, Tenn. At the outbreak of the Civil War he was appointed colonel of the 5th Regiment, Provisional Army of Tennessee, which later became the 35th Tennessee Infantry. The regiment served in Cleburne's brigade, and Hill led it with distinction at Shiloh, in Bragg's Kentucky campaign, and in the battles of Murfreesboro, Chickamauga and Chattanooga. At Chickamauga the gallant Colonel Hill won this high praise from Lieutenant General D.H. Hill, "The extraordinary merit of Colonel Hill of the 35th Tennessee came under my personal observation. This noble officer has been distinguished on many a hard fought field." At Missionary Ridge, Hill commanded the 35th and 48th Tennessee Regiments, and in late 1863, he was appointed provost marshal of the Army of Tennessee, and served in that capacity during the Atlanta campaign. He distinguished himself in John Bell Hood's Tennessee campaign, and as a result was promoted to brigadier general on Nov. 30, 1864. In the last months of the war he commanded a cavalry brigade under General Nathan Bedford Forrest and participated in the campaign against Union General James H. Wilson.
