A Post War Reminisce of a Participant
In Response To: Action at Hay Station- Flat Rock Creek - Updated ()

Below from the website “Kansas Memory” are 3 pages of a letter from Asbury Thornhill to the editor of the National Tribune, Washington, D.C., describing his experience & capture in the Action at Flat Rock Creek and as an inmate at the Confederate prisoner-of-war Camp Ford, Tyler, Texas. The letter dates from the 1870’s. Asbury Thornhill was a member of Co. D, 2d Kansas Cavalry (Union). Not in the best shape, but though some might like to see it.
