On the afternoon of July 26, 1863, John Hunt Morgan was famished, battle-fatigued, saddle-sore and in the custody of Union army officers.
Hours earlier, the Confederate brigadier general and the remnants of his once 2,200-plus strong cavalry division fought a bloody engagement against pursuing Union forces in Salineville, Ohio, near the Pennsylvania border.
A one-sided affair, the fight resulted in 23 dead Confederates, the capture of nearly 350 more, and the end of a 46-day multistate odyssey that terrified the North, delighted the South and is known to history as “Morgan’s Raid.”
