" . . . some bushwhackers rushed in about daylight and caught them asleep. It is reported that some of them got killed, but I haven't heard who. We have had some hard fighting here and have lost one man out of our company. Our loss is great, some eight or nine hundred killed and something like 10,000 wounded. Thomas Williams is. I think they will treat him well. I know you will hate to hear it . . . I think we killed more of them than they did of us . . . I has been rainy save all day and all night. No more at present. " [dated September 30, 1863]

" . . . They attacked about sun up. I was in bed and they got my boots and two pair of drawers. They got everything. I and Lige had but the shirt and pants we had on. We killed four of them and wounded five. We got reinforcements this evening . . . I tell you pap, the bullets flew around me as thick as hail . . . I can't write half I'd like to, I have no paper. Write often, yours ever . . ." [no date] Source for these two extracts are the same article by Rex Deckard noted at the end of Hughs's letter.

28  Booker White Dalton
19th Regiment, KY Infantry, Booker White Daulton was born 17 December 1841 and died 31 March 1898. He was the son of William W. and Dicey West Daulton. Little is known of Booker’s childhood other than he was probably raised near Somerset as his father and mother are buried in the Somerset Cemetery. By 1861 the Civil War had broken out in America. Dividing lines were being drawn. For whatever reason Booker elected to join the Union Army. Shortly after the Battle of Mill Springs (January 1862) Booker White Daulton joined the Kentucky 19th Infantry and was placed in Company C with the rank of a private. Anderson Webb, father of my grandmother Mary Rhoda Jane Webb Daulton (wife of William J Daulton), joined the same regiment about the same time and was placed in company A.  It is interesting to note that most of the young men in our area of that time joined the Union instead of the Confederacy.  

In the Battle of Cumberland Gap I had three Grandfathers involved in that battle. Booker W and Anderson Webb were both with the USA KY 19th and William Clifton with the CSA VA 64th. Unfortunately my Grandfather Clifton was taken as a POW and shipped to Fort Douglas in Illinois were he later passed away in that prison. Booker White Daulton served in the Kentucky 19th from 1861 into 1865. He mustered out in 1865 and the records showed that he was generally disabled. From this account we know that he was probably wounded on one or more occasions.

In the Dalton Family Papers 18 Feb 1861-20 Oct 1864, at the Univ. of So. Carolina Library http://www.sc.edu.library/socar/uses/2001/dalton.html there are nine manuscripts, mostly letters from Amos H. to his father, Smallwood, who lived near Grove Station in Greenville District, SC. Extracts from a few of those letters follow:

        From Manassas Junction, VA, dated 31 Sept 1861: Amos gave the names of those who were attached to the Davis Guards of the Hampton Legion. At the time, Amos was convalescing from the measles.

        From Prince William County, VA, dated 27 Feb 1862, Amos questioned whether he would be sent to Tennessee and described his picket guard duty the night before: “hit was So darke that i coodent see not one thang to Save my life.”

        On 12 June 1862 he described a fight where “the balls fell all around me just like granes of wheat.”

        By September 1862, he was in Winchester, VA, where a kind citizen washed his clothes, gave him food, writing paper, and envelopes, and made him a haversack. 

        While Amos was in the hospital in the summer of 1863 in Petersburg, VA, his father gained permission and a pass to travel there to see his son. Smallwood wrote back to his family to tell them that Amos was better than expected and would soon be out of the hospital.

On several occasions the Army knowing he had deserted sent Army Officer "Old Blue" looking for him.
