> Letter from 111th Ohio soldier writes from New Market, TN
On a rainy morning, the city streets almost impassable with mud, Abraham Lincoln is inaugurated for a second term, with Tennessean Andrew Johnson as Vice President. Lincoln pledges “malice toward none and charity for all.”
Three days of heavy rains cause the Cumberland River to flood – the lower part of Nashville is “completely submerged,” and several bridges have been washed away. “It is believed the flood will be the greatest ever known.” [NYT]
