Confederate raider John Hunt Morgan leaves Indiana and crosses into Ohio

John Hunt Morgan, detail
07/13/1863
After spreading panic through parts of Indiana, Confederate raider General John Hunt Morgan led his men into Ohio where he continued to tear up railroads and destroy government and civilian installations.  This proved to be an over-reach and less than two weeks later, he and much of his weary command were captured in Columbiana County, Ohio.  (By John Osborne)
