John Hunt Morgan, detail
07/24/1863
After spreading panic through parts of Indiana, Confederate raider General John Hunt Morgan had led his men into Ohio twelve days before. Union forces were closing in however, and his command forced to fight a series of skirmishes over several days.  After defeat at Salineville, he and much of his weary command were captured in Columbiana County, Ohio by Union troops under General James Shackleford.  (By John Osborne)
